This is the first tourism development project with ideas and products implemented by the community. It also develops solutions on sustainable living for local people.

After eight months of implementation, on the coastal road in Tam Thanh commune, 111 coracles and old seafaring tools were turned into art pieces by artisans, painters and local people to mark the 111th founding anniversary of Tam Ky city.

Following are photos of the coracles:

Nguyen Minh Nam, vice chairman of Tam Ky City People’s Committee, received a certificate of Vietnam’s record on the first and the greatest number of coracle painting collection in Vietnam.
