Exploring Phung Hung fresco street in Hanoi The fresco street of Phung Hung in Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi City, which has been revived with beautiful mural paintings, was opened to the public from February 3 as a new cultural and entertainment space for city dwellers during the upcoming Lunar New Year (Tet) holiday, which begins on February 16 this year. Vietnamese and South Korean artists participated in a community art exchange project which was initiated in November last year by drawing mural paintings depicting the old space of Hanoi on the walls along the 200-meter street, the Vietnam News Agency reports. The paintings are aimed to preserve the vanishing cultural heritage in the age of globalization of the 1,000-year-old capital and woo more international visitors to the city. In addition, the street will be made pedestrian-only, featuring numerous cultural activities and folk games to serve the demand for entertainment of locals and expats.
