Central region to have new beach resort
Update: Mar 22, 2010
The central province of Quang Ngai broke ground on March 20 for the construction of a multi-purpose marine tourist site at a cost of VND400 billion (USD21.2 million).

The project will offer services in convalescence, swimming, surfing, boating, entertainments, shopping, gymnasiums and accommodations for between 500 and 700 clients a day and night.

The 24.4ha resort will mark off 2.4ha for green space and gymnasiums while beaches alone cover 6ha. Hotels and convalescent homes will occupy 8.6ha and traffic roads and car parking, 4.1ha.

Once completed in late 2012, the project is expected to provide stable jobs for over 800 local work-hands.
