LED lights shine Vietnam-Japan relations
Tuyet Nguyen – Linh Pham 23:24, 2023/04/15
Along with a number of cultural events, the month-long display of art lights conveys a message of enduring and reliable relationships.

Half a million colorful light-emitting diode (LED) lights have been installed over a sizable part of Bach Dang Wharf Park in Ho Chi Minh City to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of relations between Vietnam and Japan.

Each country’s symbols and their relationship are reflected in the art lights that have been added to Bach Dang Wharf in District 1.

The artwork depicts a garden of Sakura blossoms, the national flower of Japan, and lotus flowers on water which symbolize the traditional Vietnamese image, and the interaction between the two cultures.

Bach Dang Wharf Park is one of the favorite destinations of locals and visitors.
