Hanoi greenlights Disney-esque park
The Hanoi People’s Committee has approved the plan to build 198-hectare Kim Quy (Golden Turtle) Amusement Park, inspired by Disneyland Hong Kong, in Dong Anh district, according to newswire VOV.vn.
The amusement park is one of the 25 parks that will be built in the capital in the next five years. Five of these parks will reach international standards.
Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Nguyen Duc Chung said that Kim Quy, as well as the four other international-standard parks, would be attractive destinations for visitors, offering modern entertainment facilities.
Chung also said that building parks was necessary because the city currently lacked green areas with green trees, lakes, and entertainment areas. Along with building parks, the city plans to plant more than one million trees by 2020, expecting to create a greener home for city dwellers.
Hanoi currently has five large-scale parks, including Thu Le, Thong Nhat, Hoa Binh, Nghia Do, and Cau Giay.
According to the Hanoi Capital Construction Master Plan to 2030 with vision to 2050 issued in March 2014, Hanoi will have 60 parks and urban flower gardens, including 18 new and enhancing 42 existing parks and urban flower units.
Being a world-famous amusement park and resort system, Disneyland are present in six countries, including the US, France, Japan, Hong Kong, China, and the Bahamas.
