BÌNH ĐỊNH — A new hotel is being planned in Quy Nhơn City, the south-central coastal province of Bình Định in place of other establishments that are obstructing views.
Provincial People’s Committee chairman Hồ Quốc Dũng revealed the new Bình Dương Hotel will be built on 3,000sq.m area in Nguyễn Văn Trỗi Road.
Bình Định Province's authorities would support the development with an investment of VNĐ32 billion (US$1.37 million) from the provincial budget.
The new venue will replace the old Bình Dương Hotel, which because of its high-rise buildings is obscuring views of the beach.
Another two hotels, the Hoàng Yến and Hải Âu will also be demolished and Dũng said, the provincial authorities encouraged these hotels’ owners to find suitable new locations and submit them to the provincial People's Committee for consideration.
The chairman told dantri.com.vn newspaper that public opinion supported the decision on relocating these three hotels.
The investors of the three hotels also agreed with the relocation plans.
The provincial People's Committee also approved an investment of VNĐ244 billion ($10.5 million) to expand Xuân Diệu Road, the largest coastal road in Quy Nhơn City.
The project included Xuân Diệu park, square, parking area, rest-room, garden, sculpture exhibition area, gym and sports area and children’s entertainment zone.
Quy Nhơn City, along with Đà Nẵng and Nha Trang, is one of the three tourism hubs in Việt Nam's south-central coastal region. — VNS
