These will apply to schools, hospitals, markets, bus stations, supermarkets, entertainment places, cultural houses for children and youth, parks, and government offices.
Motorbikes and electric motorcycles will be charged VNÑ4,000 for four hours during the day and VNÑ6,000 ($0.26) at night, and VNÑ210,000 ($9) per month.
The fee for cars with fewer than nine seats and trucks weighing under 1.5 tonnes will be VNÑ35,000 ($1.5) for the first two hours and VNÑ20,000 ($0.85) per hour from the third hour, and VNÑ5 million ($215) per month.
