Updated at Monday, 06 Nov 2017, 17:11
What makes the Hung Road in Dan Phuong Commune, Dan Phuong District (Hanoi) so special is that the wall on both sides of the road filled with vivid murals. All of them depict different themes of village scene, the lotus pond, happy children, greenery landscape. 
Filling street walls with murals belong to regional campaign: "streets with flowers". Up to now, the commune has completed nearly 300 meters of wall mural and 1,4 km of flower and ornamental lines paintings in Dong Khe and Doai Khe villages. Dan Phuong Youth Union members are author of these artworks. Beside creating topic, ideas for the mural, they directly set up a volunteer team and mobilize funds to turn these ideas into reality.
As many other roads in the Dan Phuong commune, Hung Road is narrow without sidewalks, so they need to mobilize socialization to draw pictures to make the road just lively, but no traffic obstruction.
Previously, the street walls winding two villages of Dong Khe and Doai Khe are old, dusty with moss mold and interlaced billboard. There are numerous garbage bags at the walls' bottom also. With the presence of vivid murals, local people now stop unorderly painting and throwing garbage to the street. The scenic landscape makes the village roads, alleys a new look and everyone feel very happy.
Some locals contributed money to buy materials, boiled water serving the workers and so on. In that, the commune mobilized five amateur painters to paint the walls. With the enthusiastic support of the people in the area, only within about 20 days the mural road has been completed.
