Over the past month, the village has had a facelift thanks to many colourful murals.

The paintings feature the daily life of fishermen and calls for joint efforts to protect the environment.

Initially, Venerable Giac Ty proposed painting murals on the walls along Quan Slope in Ly Luong Village only. Then, the village lured more tourists thanks to the murals, the idea was expanded to Nhon Ly fishing village.
