Recently, Hue and eight provinces and cities became the owners of a new heritage recognized by UNESCO - bai choi signing art. Hue has the famous and poetic Perfume River, Bach Ma National Park, Lang Co Bay - voted as one of the most beautiful bays in the world, culinary culture, and Tam Giang - Cau Hai Lagoon. This is an ideal place for vacation property development that not all localities have.
According to experts, Thua Thien - Hue has all necessary elements and conditions for tourism development. What Thua Thien Hue needs now is a master plan that does not harm cultural identity, heritage values, and best promote available local potential.

Sparing no effort to explore investment opportunities in Hue, Mr. To Nhu Toan, President and CEO of Van Phu - Invest, assessed, Thua Thien - Hue province holds a special advantage when it lies on the East - West Economic Corridor and is a cultural and tourist center of central Vietnam and the whole country. This place is home to hundreds of unique artworks and famous landscapes, bearing vivid imprints of the last feudal reign in Vietnam. In particular, the province’s master plan has not been broken and matched the company’s conservation and development orientation.
He added, “With the desire to preserve and promote local cultural identity, leaders of Thua Thien - Hue always uphold the issue of preserving cultural and historical values of the former capital when they contact and meet investors. Therefore, when studying its investment here, Van Phu - Invest is not only committed to quality and progress but also attributed special attention to preserving and promoting the value of each region and each heritage and always insisting in the viewpoint of protecting the environment, creating a friendly living space with nature”.

For Loc Binh Project, Van Phu - Invest invited WATG - a famous U.S. consulting company - to plan a resort that combines leisure services with world-class entertainment and sport services.

WATG experts said, for Loc Binh, we are preserving inherent values endowed by nature to create a totally different place for revitalizing health with the focus on tranquility and spiritual simplicity. When carrying out this project, we totally agree with the investor's opinion that it must be in the midst of the existing wildness of this land because there is nothing more valuable when creating the project in a beautiful nature landscape like Loc Binh. People will come to this product of Van Phu - Invest, eager to find a peaceful hideaway close to nature to get rid of daily tensions and tiredness and revitalize energy. The distinction and class will come from health-boosting processes and a blend of natural therapies and scientific and technological applications in the world.

Not only in Hue, Van Phu Invest will also develop urban areas in association with protecting indigenous cultural values in the best manner,” he affirmed.
Mr. To Nhu Toan, President and CEO of Van Phu - Invest:
After surveying Tam Giang Lagoon and other areas of the province, I gave many opinions to Thua Thien - Hue leaders on development planning and overall strategy for this place. They might have seen our common grounds in thinking and vision of development strategies. When we met them, we always thought that, with the pristine Tam Giang Lagoon, we should build a master plan, with strict but reasonable management regulations to tap the potential and advantages here while still preserving what nature endows on it, as well as core cultural and historical values of Hue.
