Quang Ninh (VNA) - FLC Group has inaugurated its five-star FLC Ha Long ecological resort project in Ha Long city, the northeastern province of Quang Ninh.

The inauguration ceremony was marked by a 15-minute fireworks performance and an art programme in response to the National Tourism Year 2018 hosted by Quang Ninh.

Owning the most beautiful view of UNESCO-recognised Ha Long Bay, FLC Ha Long is set to be the location for many important upcoming events such as the closing ceremony of the National Tourism Year 2018, the opening ceremony of the Asian Tourism Forum 2019 (ATF) and Travex Trade Fair 2019.

The complex, whose construction started in 2016, includes a golf course, villas, hotels and entertainment facilities. Covering 224ha, the project has total investment of over 10 trillion VND (429.3 million USD).

FLC Ha Long plans to introduce 300 villas with areas of 300 to 1,500sq.m and 649 apartments. It also has a 1,500-seat international convention centre, restaurants, bars, spa, fitness centre and infinity pool.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Ngo Hoai Chung, Deputy Director General of the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT), said the project had affirmed FLC Group’s commitment to investing in high-end tourism products.

“FLC Ha Long, together with Ha Long Bay – among the new seven natural wonders of the world, has contributed to making tourism of Quang Ninh in particular and Vietnam in general more attractive,” Chung said.

According to Nguyen Duc Long, Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, the province now has a new construction to meet high-end tourism demand.
Trinh Van Quyet, FLC Chairman said FLC Ha Long has been one of the group’s projects built in special and difficult terrain.  

FLC Ha Long is one of few resort projects with location near the world wonder Ha Long Bay.

Quang Ninh province received more than 10 million visitors for the first time, including more than 5 million foreign tourists, this year. The province also completed many important and large scale infrastructure projects such as Van Don International Airport and Ha Long – Van Don Expressway.  

In this context, new projects like FLC Ha Long or new flight routes of Bamboo Airways at Van Don International Airport are set to boost high-end tourism infrastructure to fully tap the province’s potential.-VNA
