Introduction to Tam Thanh Mural Village
The village is located in the south of Hoi An so you can plan a day trip easily. It is a small community with almost thirty houses (when it was unexplored), located near the beach that started getting attention a few years ago. Most people find this place very calm and they visit this place to run away from the crowded streets of Hoi An, Quang Nam province.
The unique and colorful Tam Thanh mural village is a live gallery of Vietnamese and Korean artists. The fishing village was very poor and isolated so the artists spent weeks here and converted the place beautifully into a village gallery. The joint project consisted of five Korean artists and seven Vietnamese artists, along with local volunteers. They aimed to help show the Vietnamese that art could be available in everyday life—whatever one’s place in life.
There are about a hundred murals on houses, walls, and streets. The paintings are not limited to the walls only but they are made of many other things that you can easily spot. There is a grassy field area where the paintings are made of bamboo-made objects. This is the major street art attraction in Vietnam that is visited by thousands of tourists every year.
