Dongxing is a city in south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, separated from Vietnam by a narrow river.
 
For both Chinese and Vietnamese people who live or work there, going for midnight snacks is a way to relieve stress.
 
Now, join Lifestyles as we take a look at the nightlife in Dongxing.
 
The street has a number of places to eat Vietnamese-style food.
 
And as China's Belt and Road Initiative boosts ties between the two countries, working in Dongxi has become a growing trend for Vietnamese people.
