On April 21, Vingroup officially opened Phu Quoc United Center—a brand-new "super tourism-resort-entertainment complex" in Southeast Asia. Setting five national records, and home to thousands of annual grand multimedia shows, mini-shows and other experiences, Phu Quoc United Center is expected to become a top destination in the global tourism map. Among those national records are: Vietnam’s largest complex with diverse entertainment and resort forms; Vietnam’s largest bamboo construction; Vietnam’s first Teddy Bear Museum; a 3D multimedia show with the most Vietnamese historical references; and Vietnam’s largest floating multimedia show inspired by European culture.
Covering nearly 2,500 acres in northern Phu Quoc Island, Vingroup’s new “tourism-entertainment universe” is said to be comparable to such hotspots as South Korea’s Jeju Island, Singapore’s Clark Quay or Las Vegas in the U.S.
Good to know: Phu Quoc United Center is home to 12,000 rooms ranging from five-star to mini-hotel segments, with brand names Vinpearl, VinOasis, VinHoliday and Radison Blue. There's also VinWonders Phu Quoc, Vietnam’s largest theme park; Vinpearl Safari, Asia's largest semi-wild zoo; Vinpearl Convention Center, a five-star MICE system; Vinpearl Golf, the 18-hole golf course; and Vinmec International Hospital.
Vietnam’s largest bamboo construction—Bamboo Legend—was designed by architect Vo Trong Nghia and built from more than 32,000 bamboo trunks. Its dome patterns reflect the communal house in Vietnamese villages—a recognizable national trait. Right next to Bamboo Legend is the Teddy Bear Museum; it's the eighth version of its kind in the world and the first in Vietnam.
The show “The Elite of Vietnam” has been recognized as the 3-D multimedia show with the most Vietnamese historical references. Comprising nearly 3,000 daytime mini-shows and 365 nighttime events each year, “The Elite of Vietnam” relives Vietnamese lifestyles, tradition and history of ancient times in a citadel, conveying compelling cultural messages.
On the other hand, “The Color of Venice” super show holds the record of Vietnam’s largest floating multimedia show inspired by European culture. With a 161,500-square-foot underground stage and the most advanced equipment for performance, this multimedia show recreates an idyllic and picturesque Venice through Valse dances, lighting, music and performances on the water surface.
A fitting end to the show trilogy in Phu Quoc United Center is the light water show, called “Once Show” arranged and performed by famous Quantum Creative Studios. “Once Show” includes fairy tales made from water, lighting, fire, ice, 3D mapping.
