With the hope of creating quality entertainment centres for Vietnamese people and turning the country into a high-end destination comparable to Disneyland, Universal, and Magic World, the Sun Group has developed “Sun World” into an entertainment brand promising unique experiences for visitors.

Sun World Ha Na Hills in Da Nang city marked the start of the “Sun World revolution” in Vietnam. Located on the top of Nui Chua, a charming but also high mountain that has discouraged many investors, just after 10 years, the complex has become a symbol of Da Nang’s tourism with numerous interesting experiences.

The number of tourist arrivals in this central city increased 17.8-fold, from nearly 490,000 in 2001 to almost 8.7 million in 2019, 70% of whom visited Ba Na Hills, statistics show.

After “Cau Vang” (Golden Bridge) in this complex became a “global phenomenon”, in 2019, two out of every three foreigners booking tours of Da Nang asked for this place to be included in their trips.

In the northern border province of Lao Cai, Sun World Fansipan Legend in Sa Pa town has helped transformed this mountainous area into a popular cultural tourist site.

Lao Cai has continually recorded impressive tourism growth since this complex was put into operation. The province welcomed 2.78 million visitors and earned over VND6.4 trillion (nearly US$280 million) in tourism revenue in 2016. The respective figures reached 4.25 million and VND13.4 trillion in 2018.

In particular, the number of holidaymakers choosing Sa Pa as their destination stood at 2.7 million in 2018, a surge from 970,000 in 2016.

Meanwhile, a theme park and a water park will be built by the Sun Group on the banks of the Do River in Sam Son city, central Thanh Hoa province, forming part of a resort and entertainment complex there. They are expected to add to the list of world-class entertainment centres in Vietnam.
