A group of South Korean artists and volunteers has helped create Vietnam’s mural village, with most paintings promoting the love for nature.
The mural village of Trung Thanh, the first of its kind in Vietnam, is based on popular mural villages in the Northeast Asian country. According to RoK Ambassador to Vietnam Lee Hyuk, the mural village project is expected to help boost local tourism development by providing tourists with a true art and culture space.
