High temperatures of recent nights in Hanoi have driven people outdoors in search of cooler evening air.


And cafes, shopping malls and supermarkets are getting more traffic as people seek refuge from the 40C+ temperatures.

At nights, bridges, including Long Bien, Thang Long and Nhat Tan, have become popular places for people to find cooler air.

Nguyen Van Hoach, 58, from Hang Khoai Street, said he takes his grandson to Long Bien Brigde for an evening walk to cool down. "I cannot sleep early at my home these days because it's too hot and we don't have an air-conditioner," he said.

The National Centre of Meteorology said the heat wave will end on July 5.
