  • New zip-line opens in Quang Nam

    New zip-line opens in Quang Nam

    A new zip-line has been opened at the Phu Ninh Lake ecotourism zone in Phu Ninh district, central Quang Nam province. The zip-line is a 750-metre-long double-cable line, connecting Da Den (Black Stone) Hill with isle 61 in the lake. The cable is made of steel imported from Russia and can bear a weight of 13 tons. Other facilities were imported from Germany. The double-cable zip-line is considered safer than a uni-cable line. Riding a zip-line is a thrilling activity around the world. Some 7 km from Tam Ky town, the artificial Phu Ninh Lake is fast becoming a popular tourism destination. It is one of the largest irrigation works in the country, with a surface area of 3,433 ha and surrounded by 16,000 ha of protected forests, mostly pine trees, which have diverse flora and fauna such as birds and reptiles as well as rare animals such as red-faced monkey, red wolf, horse bear, antelope dapple deer, and pheasant, making it ideal for studies and ecological tourism.

  • ‘Listen to the River’

    ‘Listen to the River’

    ‘Listen to the River’ is the title of an art exhibition by Truc Chi Art, founded by Vietnamese artist Phan Hai Bang and his young associates, who are students at the Hue College of Fine Arts. The exhibition presents different visual art mediums, including Truc Chi art, installation, light, sound, and video. Through the exhibition, Bang aims to present new accomplishments based on the idea of acculturation. This is how traditional values should be treated in regard to creating new values. The core concept is that paper doesn’t have to just be used as a material on which art is made. Instead, paper can be a standalone artwork, and papermaking can also be a standalone kind of art.

    Bang has worked as a lecturer at the Hue College of Fine Arts since 1996 and has participated in a wide range of group exhibitions and solo exhibitions. His latest project is ‘Vietnam Truc Chi Art’, which leverages the elite in traditional papermaking methods to create a new form of art, a new cultural value for the region.
