Several yellow ochre walls, a signature characteristic of Vietnam’s famed tourist hub of Hoi An, have been defaced with ugly graffiti.
Hoi An is known for its charm, represented by the dark yellow houses lining the streets of its ancient town – an ambience which attracts thousands of visitors each year.
