This mural was built as a part of Hanoi's millennial anniversary and illustrates the history of Vietnam.

  • We saw this multiple times as we were driving on the road. It is beautiful and the longest ceramic mural in the world. It is beautiful. I would strongly suggest renting a bike and riding the sidewalk ...  more »
  • Passing up to 3850 meters of the famous ceramic mosaic mural wall (Hanoi Ceramic Mosaic mural), it is the world's longest mural of this type. This is an activity organized by hundreds of artists spontaneously to celebrate the 1000 anniversary of Hanoi's construction of the city, and it will take 4 years to complete the art work. But compared to graffiti on white walls (thankfully not), such an art is worth spending so much time. Thanks to the young Vietnamese artists who have done such incredible work that they don't have anywhere else. All of the ceramic fragments come from a very famous village near Hanoi, a Bowl village, which tells the history of Hanoi from 1010 to 2010. The mural itself depicts the history of the people of Hanoi, from the rural life to the urban life, from animals to plants, religion, totem, abstract painting, all-encompassing. The only drawback about it is that it is next to a very busy road and we can see it on a motorbike. It's difficult to fully appreciate these murals while driving, but it adds a lot of fun to driving and it's fun to be close to the viewer.
