Disneyland-esque Coming Soon to Vietnam
Ever heard of the city of Vung Tau in Vietnam? We haven't, despite being big fans of the country, but it sounds like it's the up and coming destination of Vietnam tourism.
Situated in the south of the country, just over an hour's ride by hydrofoil from Ho Chi Minh City, Vung Tau is the site of a lot of recent investment, most notably a $300 million resort that's currently under construction. It will include hotels, shopping and sailing facilities, and a large aquarium will be built nearby.
Not yet approved, however, is the plan to build a theme park in Vung Tau that will be modeled on Disneyland. How closely it's going to be modeled on Disneyland--and if the Disney guys are happy about that--is not yet publicly known, but one departure will be a "Wonders of the World" section with replica Eiffel Tower, Golden Gate Bridge and Pyramids. Hopefully not exact replicas, or they might have to pay Egypt royalties.
