Work starts on major theme park in Hanoi

Hanoi City and Sun Group last week held a ground-breaking ceremony for Kim Quy theme park featuring the north’s traditional culture and entertainment models of Universal Studios and Disneyland in Dong Anh District.

Covering more than 100 hectares, the international-standard park in Vinh Ngoc Commune has an initial investment of VND4.6 trillion (US$209 million) invested by Sun Group. The design of the park is inspired by the story about the Co Loa Citadel, which was built in 225 BC.

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc told the ground-breaking ceremony that the park is expected to become a highlight of Hanoi’s tourism sector and an attractive destination for domestic and foreign visitors to the capital city after the project is put into service in the next 18 months.

Phuc told the government of Hanoi to create favorable conditions for the investor to implement the project and have a proper mechanism to support affected households.

Earlier, Sun Group sought the Hanoi government’s nod to draw up the 1:500-scale zoning plan for the big-ticket theme park in the urban and eco-tourism complex in the capital city. Then, competent agencies in Hanoi were assigned to appraise the project and prepare procedures for the investor to move on with it.

Sun Group has invested in a number of amusement park projects in Vietnam. They include Sun World Halong Park worth VND6 trillion (US$269.3 million) in Halong City in the northern province of Quang Ninh, and Fantasy Park in Ba Na Hills tourism area and Asia Park covering 76.3 hectares of land and 11.7 hectares of water surface in the central coast city of Danang.

The capital city expects to have 25 parks in the next five years, including five international-standard parks.
