The brocade road, located at a resort in Yen Dinh commune, Bac Me district, has been recognized by the Vietnam Record Organization. Inaugurated in September 2020, the road stretches 1,700 m along the hill flank, VNExpress reported.

The resort’s representative Vu Phuong said that the brocade road is built with a view to preserving and upholding the unique cultural traits of ethnic minorities.

The idea of creating the brocade road derives from the locals and resorts’ staff. The road’s patterns are completely hand-painted.

Maintaining and restoring the road is not easy, Phuong said, adding that there is a worker who is responsible for clearing leaves and repaint the road every day and every month.
