The construction of a VND300 billion (US$13.19 million) entertainment complex in Rach Gia City in Mekong Delta’s Kien Giang Province started on Saturday.
The 40,000-square metre park is part of the Phu Cuong Kien Giang Ocean Urban Complex, one of the largest projects in Mekong Delta, which includes a hospital, a shopping centre, an international school, and a sport-entertainment complex.
The project is expected to help make tourism a leading revenue-generating sector for the province by 2020.
Huynh Ha Phuong, director general of Phu Cuong Kien Giang Investment Joint Stock Company, said the entertainment complex has 12 sections: a 2,500 square metre water park, a sun wheel, a marina, a golf course, a 6000sq.m sea-view square, two tennis courts, two swimming pools, two indoor badminton courts, a gym, a game area and a helicopter pad.
The high-end complex, located on the 30-hectare manmade Phu Gia island, is scheduled to open to the public three years after start of construction.
The VND2.2 trillion artificial island is being planned as a modern and stunning piece of architecture. It took the company one year to level 90 per cent of the ground and build the embankment. As a sea-encroaching urban area, it will have upmarket sea-view villas, five-star hotels, seaside resorts and a yacht port.
Around 30.4 per cent of the 30 hectares will be used to build houses, 14.47 per cent of the land will be allocated for trade and services, 29.95 per cent will be a green zone and the rest of the land will be used for transport. — VNS
