HẢI PHÒNG — About 1,850 cars formed a map of Việt Nam in northern city of Hải Phòng on Saturday, breaking the current world record of 750 cars.
The event was organised at the Đồi Rồng International Tourism Site in Đồ Sơn District by Vinfast and OTV Media after two years of preparation.
It began on July 8 and completed on July 9 afternoon, forming a map of Việt Nam with about 1,850 cars. Meanwhile, the current Guinness world record of 750 cars was set in China, and it took five days to form that mosaic.
At the end of the event, drivers and thousands of spectators held a flag salute ceremony.
Many other activities also took place besides this programme such as drifting by professional drivers, 3D lighting performances at sea, test driving e-vehicles of the domestic car manufacturer VinFast, a car race, and a gala dinner.
With more than 3,000 participants, the car mosaic forming programme was believed to have greatly helped popularise Đồ Sơn and Việt Nam at large as an attractive destination, especially for caravan tours when Vietnamese people have made many transcontinental car tours but few international tourists have come to explore the country via this form of travel. — VNS
