Ceramic Road looking worn after three years

Hanoi Ceramic Road, made in 2010 to mark the 1000th anniversary of Thang Long (Hanoi), is in bad shape after only a little over three years.

Now, many parts of the nearly 4km wall have fallen off, while the mended portions appear irregular in colour and patchy.

At the opening ceremony in 2010, the road was recognised as the world's largest ceramic mosaic by the Guinness Book.

The deterioration is mainly attributed to lack of upkeep and public indifference to the work built along the Red River Dike.

Along the road, numerous street vendors have pulled tarps over the wall for tea and food stalls. The pervasive stench of urine only adds to the shameful spectacle.
