 Phu Quoc City, Vietnam

Phu Quoc is a wonderful place with a beautiful tsunami-safe beach, unlike in Thailand Phuket and adjacent ones or those of Indonesia... The worst tsunami that hit Phuket of Thailand in 2004 killed hundreds of thousands of people including tourists from Northern Europe, and you will never hear of a tsunami hitting Phu Quoc due to its unique location.

Because of ongoing developments as carefully planned with consideration of environment preservation and sustainability, Phu Quoc Island has become another major city, Phu Quoc City.

Some of the following are major projects in Phu Quoc City - with an initial total investment of 16.5 billion USD. This is huge considering an area that is not big.

In the Northern part of Phu Quoc, the Megaproject number one is the GrandWorld of VinGroup - consisting of shopping areas, entertainment, and hotels.

The second Megaproject is VinWonders - the largest theme park of VinGroup in Phu Quoc.

About Me

My photo
As a Vietnamese American - graduated from college here in the US, I want to spend some time in Vietnam - a country I left when I was very young. Because of the war, I did not have any opportunity to travel much in Vietnam, except Saigon and Vung Tau back and forth during those years. Now is the time for me to learn more about my mother's country to appreciate its beauty, art, and culture.
