Binh Dinh (VNA) – Authorities of central Binh Dinh province have directed agencies to seek investment in coastal tourism projects, in an effort to develop tourism into a key economic sector.

With 134km of coast, Binh Dinh is blessed with seaports, gulfs, lagoons, smooth sand banks, and mountain ranges.

A priority project is the Tan Thanh tourism area in Cat Hai commune, Phu Cat district, which lies north of the Nhon Hoi economic zone. It will feature a world-class hotel and resort complex with a golf course, recreational area and conference hall on a site of 125ha.

The project is expected to be built between 2016 and 2020 at a cost of 250 million USD.

Tan Thanh beach, described as “Heaven on Earth”, has optimal conditions for water sports such as water-skiing, scuba diving, kayaking and gliding.

As part of the Nhon Hoi economic zone, the 150 million USD Vinh Hoi tourism area in Cat Hai commune, Phu Cat district will sprawl across 230ha, offering resort villas, hotels, golf courses, restaurants and other service facilities.

Vinh Hoi beach is known for its crystal-clear water, casuarina forests and proximity to relic and ecological sites such as Ba mountain, Tan Thanh wharf and Trung Luong sea.

Another project inside the Mui Rong – Tay Phung tourism zone in My Tho commune, Phu My district plans to build a spiritual and ecological tourism area at a cost of 100 million USD between 2016 and 2020.

The Mui Rong – Tay Phung tourism zone is nearly 20km from Phu My township to the east. Mui Rong (Dragon Fin Cape) are rocky rapids heading to the ocean with a cave passing into the sea, which looks like a dragon’s mouth. According to the myth, it is shaped like fish fin and called “Dragon Fin stone” by locals.

Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Ho Quoc Dung said the province has offered several incentives, including 11-year land lease tax waive, four-year corporate tax waiver and a 50 percent tax reduction for nine years, among others./.
