The cable car named Queen cable car has the starting point in Bai Chay District, Halong City. It runs through Cua Luc Bay, parallel to Bai Chay Bridge to the top of Ba Deo Hill. The height of the cable tower in Bai Chay is 188.8 meters and that in Ba Deo Hill is over 133 meters. The static height of the cable is 30 meter higher than that of Bai Chay Bridge. The 2-storey cabin can accommodate about 230 tourists, equal to the capacity of an aircraft. The project is designed as a giant park in Ba Deo Hill featuring an amusement park and a giant rotary on the top of the hill. When completed, it will be the world’s highest rotary compared to the sea level. The expected height is at an altitude of about 250 meters. From this spin, tourists may observe a panorama of Halong Bay and Halong City.
Under the plan, there will be an aquarium built on Halong Bay for tourists to visit and enjoy aquatic games. It is expected to be an amazing unique tourism product of Halong in particular and of Quang Ninh Province in general. After receiving the investment certification at the Conference announcing planning strategy on September 13th from Quang Ninh Province, Sun Group – the main investor – has accelerated implementation and will complete this giant project within 1 year.
In addition to the project in Halong Bay, Sun Group is approved to research and implement the project building a luxury hot mineral resort in Quang Hanh District, Cam Pha City in an area of 730 hectares. The projects consists of 3 areas including a luxury hot mineral resort in an area of 160 hectares, a luxury resort near Bai Tu Long in an area of 420 hectares and a zone for conserving natural landscape in an area of 150 hectares. The total investment is estimated at VND 3,500 billion, equal to nearly $ 175 million.
Representatives of Sun Group said that from the perspective of tourism industry, Quang Ninh is considered as a golden land to develop projects in tourism and recreation. However, there has not been an outstanding highlight in Halong Bay tourism yet. Therefore, Sun Group wants to invest in a truly large-scale project which will become the highlight of local tourism industry. Once completed, this project will develop Halong Bay into an destination of beautiful natural landscape, fascinating amusement park and luxury resorts in international standards.
