Daitsu eyes hot springs resort in Binh Dinh Vietnam
Japanese Daitsu has proposed a resort on Hoi Van hot springs in Binh Dinh Province, central Vietnam, following a trend of Japanese investment in the area.
On March 14, Daitsu’s mission, headed by Daitsu Chief Executive Officer Toshihiko Mizumo, made a survey tour at the Nhon Hoi Economic Zone, Hoi Van Hot Springs, Phu Tai Industrial Zone and Quy Nhon – Song Cau tourism route. Mr Mizumo talked about Daitsu’s intention to set up a resort in a meeting with Binh Dinh Peoples’ Committee Chairman Vu Hoang Ha. The two also discussed overall investment in the area.
The Hoi Van springs are located at Cat Hiep, Phu Cat District, 40km from Quy Nhon, and 5km from Phu Cat Airport, near the 1A Highway. The area is near a site containing historical Cham towers, trade villages, the De Gi seaport and the tourist complexes of Phuong Mai – Nui Ba.
The hot springs have a surface temperature of 78-84°C and flow at about 2,400 cu.m/day. The mineral-rich water is believed to ease arthritis as well as skin and digestive problems.
In addition to the resort, Mr Mizumo proposed an office in Quy Nhon to provide information to Japanese businesses interested in Binh Dinh Province. The group also offered to help the Binh Dinh authority set up an office in Japan.
