Dragon Hill: Wake up ‘Forgotten Paradise’

A new resort project right in the open sea of Dragon Hill complex has been submitted for permission to become an attractive island, with the potential to attract tourists for longer stay and to discover more about the beautiful landscapes of the northern city of Hai Phong.

Hai Phong is the largest port city in the north of Vietnam and is also the country’s third largest commercial and economic center. The city is just behind Hanoi on scale and rate of development in the north and is one of the five municipalities, one of the national first-grade centers, alongside the central city of Da Nang and the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho.

Hai Phong is also known as the “Land of Port,” or “Port City,” as it has plenty of tourism potentials associated with the sea. The city possesses a long coastline of over 125 kilometers, which is low and quite flat. Especially, Do Son in Hai Phong is always one of the most crowded beaches in the north of Vietnam.

Only 22 kilometers to the southeast from the center of Hai Phong, Do Son has long been known as an ideal holiday destination, maintaining an important position in the economic and social development of Hai Phong in particular, and the northern coast in general.

Despite having many advantages such as convenient transport network spanning across different topographies of sea and mountains, Do Son has yet to utilize its advantages to cover the huge shortage of Vietnamese tourism at the present time.

The lack of ideas, models and operational methods has prevented the resorts of standards and quality in the city from running properly promotion and investment to help foster its tourism.

Fairly speaking, the geographic location, the people and scenery of Hai Phong and Do Son are highly recognized for the potential tourism development in the country, thanks to the advantage of a trading gateway for customs clearance and shipping. With all necessary and sufficient factors, Hai Phong is always the first choice for investors.

Many people even compare Do Son as a ‘forgotten paradise’ of the northern region, like Singapore’s Sentosa Island – which is hot all year round due to its tropical climate, but thanks to an appropriate development model, has attracted enormous visitors for shopping, leisure, entertainment and recreation.

A new resort project right in the open sea of Dragon Hill complex has been submitted for permission to become an attractive island, with the potential to attract tourists for longer stay and to discover more about the beautiful landscapes of the northern city of Hai Phong.

 

It takes only one hour and a half to travel the 76.1 kilometer distance between Dragon Hill and Ha Long Bay, the World natural wonder in the neighboring province of Quang Ninh, thanks to the Ha Long – Hai Phong expressway. This is an advantage for visitors who want to discover more about the natural beauty of Vietnam.

Currently, the northern region is in a shortage of family resorts, or high-end resort models for leisure and recreation needs. The appearance of Dragon Hill (Doi Rong) is expected by the Do Son people, together with the economic status of this area, to make changes to the tourism and enhance Do Son to become the most beautiful and convenient beach in the north.

Dragon Hill resort is also the first necessary push to wake up the ‘paradise resort’ that has been neglected for years.

All new things come from new thinking and ways. The Hanoi – Hai Phong expressway that was completed and put into full operation in 2015 has opened many favorable opportunities for such an economic potential that was left open. Visitors from Hanoi to Hai Phong, as well as neighboring areas such as Quang Ninh, Hai Duong, Hung Yen have been able to shorten the travel time to the center of Do Son to only one or two hours.

It takes only ten minutes from Hai Phong to Cat Ba biosphere reserve or Dragon Hill. Cat Bi International Airport, with many new international flights, is about to open. As tourists or local visitors no longer find it difficult to come and go during the day, it is safe to hope that the port city of Hai Phong will develop into a beautiful tourist destination, the focus point of the north region.
