Organizers of MoS Vietnam 2018 are waiting for an independent adjudicator from Guinness World Records to check the challenge for the national record.

The event was held over five days with the majority of the artists working on the wall over the Saturday and Sunday. Meeting of Styles Vietnam concluded on the final day with a huge party next to the wall. Even though the party is well and truly over, the impressive collaboration that remains is worth visiting.

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.
