How to Get There
Hue’s Graffiti Wall is around 7KM from the city centre and sits on the road to Mo Rua Gardens Homestay. The roads there take you along the city’s outskirts. If you’re driving, it’s on route to the Abandoned Waterpark via the Bunker Hill.
The Graffiti Wall is in alley 78 (Kiệt 78) on Huyền Trân Công Chúa road. It’s easy to know if you’ve gone down the right alley since the graffiti starts very near the beginning of the entrance.
artwork runs on both sides of the wall. If the gates are closed to the other side, I’m assured there is a more discreet entrance near the wall’s beginning.
