The village has more than 20 paintings depicting nature as well as countryside life on its walls, adding considerably to its rural charm.
Six months ago, a group of seven young painters from several universities in Hanoi volunteered to decorate Chu Xa with murals.
Locals have welcomed the project because it helps to attract more visitors and improves the look of the village.
