NDO/ VNA – The central province of Thua Thien-Hue on January 9 granted an investment licence to Spain’s PSH Group to construct the Hue Amusement & Beach Park project in Phu Vang district.
Covering 49.5 hectares in Vinh Thanh and Vinh An commune, the project aims to build a tourism service complex comprising 1,000 four and five-star hotel rooms, 93 resort villas and an amusement area featuring a water park, a bird park, a trade centre, and a handicraft production and display zone.
With a total investment of VND 1.06 trillion (US$47 million), the project is scheduled to kick off in the second quarter of this year and be operational within two years.
At a meeting with local officials, President of the PSH Group Gregorio Perez said he hopes to receive support from the local government during the implementation of the project thus contributing to diversifying tourism in the province and attracting more tourists.
In 2016, the central province welcomed 3.25 million tourists, including over 1 million foreigners, up 4% against the previous year.
