vietnam-travel-danang-img03Investors have registered some 20 investment projects in trade-hotel-office complexes in the central city of Da Nang which have the investment capital of several billion dollars in total.

No more room in ‘golden land area’

Ho Quang Dung, General Director of Indochina Riverside Towers, said that his company would officially put Indochina Riverside Towers, a trade-office-apartment complex, into operation in March 2008. This is one of the first and biggest complexes in Da Nang, capitalized at nearly $30mil. The project has ignited the tendency of building complexes in the city.

Vinh Trung Plaza is not located on the Han riverside like Indochina Riverside Towers, but it is situated on the most crowded area in the centre of the city. Thanks to its favorable position, Vinh Trung Plaza is the ideal place for developing trade and hotel services, and leasing offices.

Nguyen Thi Chi, General Director of Duc Manh Investment Joint Stock Company, which has injected $50mil in the project, said that the investor has met a lot of clients who want to lease apartments and offices. French retailer Big C has decided to lease four stories of the building, and Big C’s supermarket was opened at the end of 2007.

To date, all the golden land areas in the centre of Da Nang City have been fully occupied. The new buildings, which will arise in five or ten years, will create a new face to the city, more modern and more beautiful.

Eyeing coastal areas

Late investors, who cannot get the golden land plots in the centre of the city, are now eyeing the land plots on the tourism routes along the coast. Son Tra – Dien Ngoc area is now considered the golden strip of land, which a lot of investors have been eyeing to build international-standard complexes of resorts and apartments. The total registered investment capital of the projects has reached nearly $1bil.

Furama resort Da Nang, which has been very successful in Vietnam, is planning to expand the resort by 28 ha with the ambitious plan to build hotels, luxury apartments and shopping centres right on beaches.

Besides, the golden strip of land along the coast has also been drawing the special attention from many other investors, like VinaCapital or Indochina Capital. Most investors plan to develop complexes of trade, offices and apartments in order to take full advantage of the areas.

Da Nang City’s authorities have been encouraging investors to the city, hoping that the investment boom will help create a lot of modern complexes that will make the city more dynamic in the future.

Landslides at Ngu Hanh Son December 18, 2008

vietnam-travel-danang-img02Unaccountable landslides have been happening on Moc Son Mountain, often called Cockscomb Mountain, the only mountain in the 5-mountain Ngu Hanh Son area which hasn’t seen any tourism activities. Tourists can only contemplate Moc Son, which stands up straight against the sky, from places on the other 4 mountains. Moc Son used to be the victim of illegal rock exploitation which served the needs of the Non Nuoc sculpture and fine arts village in the 1980-1990 period. Rock exploitation activities are now rarely seen here, though in 2003, a resident from Hoa Hai Ward, Da Nang City, was charged with rock exploitation and sentenced to prison. However, there are signs of recent landslides happening on the eastern and southern sides of Moc Son Mountain which can be seen clearly from the Son Tra-Dien Ngoc coastal road. Rocks of several m3 are scattered on the sides and at the foot of the mountain. The presence of macadam and powdered rock at the sites of landslides would seem to indicate that these landslides weren’t natural ones. Asked whether there was any factor that could have caused them, Vice Chairman of the Hoa Hai Ward People’s Committee Huynh Phuoc Thach said, “There is absolutely no rock exploitation around Ngu Hanh Son.” Mr. Thach said that the rocks scattered on Moc Son had been caused by natural landslides. It is strange, however, that these so-called “natural landslides” have only happened in uninhabited areas of the mountain. Hundreds of households are living at the foot of Moc Son Mountain, which has almost no slope. On the western side, people conveniently build their houses against cliffs. If landslides continue to occur, they would indeed be disastrous for these residents. In March 2007, the Da Nang City People’s Committee issued new detailed construction regulations for residential zones in the Ngu Hanh Son area. Yet, construction activities are still being carried out in a haphazard manner. Ngu Hanh Son, one of the few attractive tourism destinations around Da Nang City, now has to deal with landslides in addition to alarming environmental pollution. Responsible authorities in Da Nang, however, haven’t taken any resolute actions to handle these problems.

Marble Mountain is a cluster of marble and limestone hills. In Vietnamese it is called Ngu Hành Son, literally “five-element mountains”. It is located in Ngu Hanh Son District, south of Da Nang.

In the solemn and quiet atmosphere inside the museum, one can not only enjoy the cultural masterpieces of the ancient Champa people, but also listen to a guided tour of their legends, histories and beliefs.
