Vietnamese government decides to close down all cafes along Hanoi city's railway over safety concerns for selfie-seeking tourists

Vietnam's 1902-built railway attracts crowds of tourists that want to snap selfies with passing trains or lounge at trackside cafes. But the government has given a deadline for all cafes to close down to secure public safety.

"I love it. It's crazy, and completely different to anywhere I've been before," said Australian tourist Laura Metze, after a train rumbled by.

It uses an old-fashioned French narrow gauge, and is so old that when North Korean leader Kim Jong Un visited Hanoi in February for a summit with US President Donald Trump, he had to stop at the border and continue by car.

On Sunday, a train had to make an emergency stop soon after leaving Hanoi railway station to avoid hitting tourists, state media said.

New and creative tourism products are encouraged, but must conform to legal regulations, Sieu added.
