Constructed within a year, the project covers an area of 200 hectares and cost about 5.5 trillion VND (254 million USD). It comprises a 1,300-seat international conference centre, a five-star hotel, an 18-hole golf course and a five-star resort.
The FLC Group also built nearly 1,000 villas in the area.
Sam Son beach is 16 kilometres from Thanh Hoa city. Its 10-kilometre coastline is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in northern central Vietnam. Impressive scenes, historical vestiges and the hospitality of local people linger in the minds of tourists.
In the first half of this year, Thanh Hoa earned more than 3.36 trillion VND (157 million USD), up 22.7 percent from the same period last year.
The total number of tourists to the province in the reviewed period exceeded 3.3 million, including 57,700 foreigners. The Sam Son beach resort town alone earned 1.23 trillion VND (57.5 million USD) with 2.5 million tourists.
The town plays a central role in promoting the province’s tourism potential in the 2015 National Tourism Year./.
