HÀ NỘI – Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc today attended the ground-breaking ceremony of the Kim Quy cultural, tourism and amusement park in Vĩnh Ngọc Commune, Hà Nội’s suburban district of Đông Anh.

The US$209 million park features both the traditional culture of Hà Nội and the modern design of Universal Studios and Disneyland.

Addressing the event, the Prime Minister said the project is expected to become a highlight of the city’s tourism and an attractive destination for domestic and foreign tourists in the future, contributing to making tourism a spearhead sector of the city.

He expressed the hope that the first phase of the project would be completed as per schedule in 18 months, ensuring international standards in quality. He also asked investors to support locals who had to move out to provide space for the project.

The project is part of Hà Nội’s plan to build 25 new parks, 3 to 5 of which meet international and regional standards, and plant one million trees until 2030.

Covering more than 100 hectares, the project has an initial investment of VNĐ4.6 trillion (US$209 million) by Sun Group. Designed by ITEC Group from the United States, the Kim Quy (Golden Turtle) Park is inspired by the story of the Cổ Loa spiral-shaped citadel (located in Đông Anh District of Hà Nội now) which was built by King An Dương Vương in the third century BC with the help of the legendary Golden Turtle God.

Most of the park will be covered by trees and lakes, making space for visitors to enjoy nature.

Together with modern games and applying world cutting edge of technology, the park also comprises an art enclave and a Kim Quy cultural village to host large-scale art shows. – VNS
