Vietnam to have Disneyland-style $ 1.3-billion theme park

HANOI (Xinhua): Vietnam's first Disneyland-style theme park with investment of $ 1.3 billion in Vietnam' s southern Vung Tau city is on the verge of getting an investment certificate.

Good Choice Imports-Exports and Investment Inc., affiliated to U.S. realty and investment firm PDE, last month submitted an investment application for the Vung Tau World Theme Park project, which will cover nearly 200 hectares in the coastal city, local newspaper Vietnam Investment Review reported Monday.

The project will house an 88-storey office building, a "Wonder of the World" site, where spectators will find replicas of the Eiffel Tower, Golden Gate Bridge and the Egyptian Pyramids, an international conference center, shopping malls, luxurious hotels, 3D cinemas, and open-air stages.

The theme park will be able to accommodate 100,000 visitors around the clock. Some components of the park will become operational after 2010, said the newspaper.
