DA NANG (Biz Hub)— Lao Prime Minister Thongsing Thammavong has urged the SUN Group to build a model tourist destination in Laos similar to its Ba Na Hills resort in central Da Nang City.

Speaking during a visit to Da Nang on July 13, the Prime Minister appreciated the contribution made by private businesses to Viet Nam's economic development. He said he was impressed by the tourism business of the SUN Group in the Ba Na Hills resort and would introduce the resort to the Lao people.

SUN Group CEO Dang Minh Truong said the Viet Nam National Administration of Tourism had recently named the resort one of the best tourist destinations in Viet Nam. The resort's cable car has been listed No 3 among the 11 most impressive cable cars in the world by the British newspaper The Telegraph.

In  March 2009, the cable car running in the Ba Na Hills is recognized by Guinness World Records as being both the highest and the longest non-stop cable car in the world. The record-breaking cable car runs from the Base of Ba Na Mountain to Vong Nguyet Mountain's Peak. — VNS Photo

Each year, the resort attracts some 1.5 million tourists, which makes a significant contribution to the development of Da Nang City.
