The Basket Boat Path Art project has been conducted by art teachers in Tam Ky Town and voluntary artists from Hanoi.

Back in 2016, Trung Thanh Village in Tam Thanh Commune (Tam Ky City, Quang Nam Province) was turned into an “art village” after volunteers from the Tam Ky Municipal People’s Committee and the Korea Foundation painted colorful murals on over 100 houses. Under a program called Art for a Better Community, the coastal commune became a tourist attraction thanks to its beautiful, varied artwork, which depicts everything from traditional scenes of Vietnam to flora and fauna such as sunflowers and penguins.

At the time, Voice of Vietnam reported that the locality followed up the home murals by painting over 100 coracle boats and creating a 1.5-kilometer-long “boat road.” The paintings reflect the true scenery and daily life in this fishing village. These are natural scenes with coconut trees leaning down to the Truong Giang river, boats docking at sunset on the sea, or the characters in old, run-down houses, innocent children flying kites, playing football, the countryside markets squatting in the corner of the village. Some places are portraits of a gentle Quang girl in ao dai, an old fish with a seasoned face, or a baby looking out at the sea waiting for her father… Bright and colorful paintings tell simple and true stories in the coastal village.
