New tourist attraction in south of Hoi An – Tam Mural village – Ky Anh hictoric tunnel – Vietnamese heroic statue

Tam Thanh Mural Village is a joint initiative by the Korean Community Art Exchange Program and the Vietnamese People’s Committee of Quang Nam Province to bring art to the people. In a summer of 2016, a group of volunteers from The Republic of Korea (RoK) and Vietnamese, following the project “Art for better community”, turned their artistic talents into transforming the Tam Thanh fishing village in Quang Nam into the first mural village of Vietnam during period of 2 weeks with over 100 murals. Continued success after 2 years, these artists backed to Vietnam to repaint the mural village in June 2018. The project also includes some sculptures put in some different places in these hamlets. There were 20 art teachers, 10 Tam Ky artists and some Korean painters working in the project.

Ky Anh guerrilla warfare tunnel in Quang Nam Province was one of three tunnels that played an important role in the war against the Americans between 1965-72, along with Vinh Moc in Quang Tri Province and the Cu Chi tunnel in suburban HCM City. It is now being made into a tourist destination by the central province of Quang Nam.
