Thousands of lanterns are lighting up Asia Park in the central coastal city of Da Nang setting a new record for a road in the area claiming the title as the longest lantern road in Vietnam.
The 1.1 kilometre lantern road, adorned with more than 3,000 colourful lanterns across four areas, currently holds the title of Vietnam’s longest lantern road, officially recognised by the Vietnam Record Association on August 29.
The street’s central area features thousands of Vietnamese traditional paper lanterns made of paper and bamboo structures. Visitors to the street can also enjoy a fairy-tale world filled with cartoon characters.
Other sections display artwork reflecting the cultures of Japan, Indonesia and Singapore.
The event, along with numerous activities including games, lion dances and drum performances, will run until September 27./.
