French style village being built on Ba Na mount

2010-03-29 (GMT + 7)

The Ba Na Cable Car Service Joint Stock Company is building a French-style village on Ba Na mount to serve domestic and foreign tourists.

The construction project with a combined investment capital of US$15 million includes 80 two-storey houses scattered throughout the forest.
Dang Minh Truong, Chairman of the company’s Management Board, said that the village is designed to revive an old resort whose facilities date back to the early 20th century. The resort was considered the largest resort paradise in Indochina at that time.
Apart from the village, the company is building an entertainment park boasting a 3D cinema, a snow city, game centres and artificial mountains for climbers, Truong said, expecting the US$25-million park will be completed at the end of next March.
Located 46 km southwest of the central coast city of Da Nang, Ba Na is endowed with a mild climate and beautiful natural scenery. The French colonials discovered the area in 1901 and built a dozen villas exclusively for their officials.
Ba Na in 1986 was recognised by the state as a natural reserve with rare fauna and flora in need of protection such as bassia, perfumed wood and pheinardia ocellata.
At present, Ba Na is one of the most famous tourism and resort sites in Vietnam.
