This “artistic road” is designed based on inspiration from a song by the late famous musician Trinh Cong Son, for whom the street is named after.|
|The road is adorned with zigzag patterns in four colors, representing Hanoi autumn in a song of the musician, including yellow-green, red-orange, white, and red-violet. |
