On April 21st, 2021, Vingroup officially opened Phu Quoc United Center – the brand new tourism-resort-entertainment complex in Southeast Asia. Setting 5 national records, featuring thousands of annual grand multimedia shows, mini-shows and one-of-a-kind experiences, Phu Quoc United Center – Vietnam’s “Sleepless City” – Vingroup’s new “tourism-entertainment universe” covers over 1000 ha in northern Phu Quoc Island.
On the occasion of its launch, Phu Quoc United Center also kick-starts a series 24/7 events, including 7,200 grand multimedia shows and 12,000 mini-shows every year. This tourism complex has been recognized by the Vietnam Record Association with five national records, namely Vietnam’s largest complex with diverse entertainment and resort forms, Vietnam’s largest bamboo construction, Vietnam’s first Teddy Bear Museum, 3D multimedia show with the most Vietnamese historical references, and Vietnam’s largest floating multimedia show inspired by European culture.
Vietnam’s largest bamboo construction – Bamboo Legend (top of page) – was designed by world-acclaimed architect Vo Trong Nghia and built from more than 32,000 bamboo trunks. Its dome patterns reflect the communal house in Vietnamese villages – a unique, recognizable national trait. Right next to Bamboo Legend is the world-renowned Teddy Bear Museum. This 1500-square-meter museum is the eighth version of its kind in the world and the very first in Vietnam, housing bears of all kinds and all sizes that can thrill everyone from the very young to the young at heart.
The show “The Elite of Vietnam” has been recognized as the 3D multimedia show with the most Vietnamese historical references. Comprising nearly 3000 daytime mini-shows and 365 nighttime events each year, “The Elite of Vietnam” relives Vietnamese lifestyles, tradition and history of ancient times in a citadel, conveying compelling cultural messages. State-of-the-art technology and visual effects incorporated in these shows have embellished Vietnamese culture in the modern entertainment world.
“The Color of Venice” super show holds the record of Vietnam’s largest floating multimedia show inspired by European culture. With a 15-thousand-square-meter underground stage and the most advanced equipment for performance, this is one of the largest multimedia shows in Vietnam, recreating an idyllic and picturesque Venice through Valse dances, lighting, music and performances on the water surface that can be found nowhere else.
A fitting end to the show trilogy in Phu Quoc United Center is the world-class light water show, called “Once Show” arranged and performed by famous Quantum Creative Studios. Costing 12 million USD, “Once Show” is a breath-taking world a fairytales made from water, lighting, fire, ice, and 3D mapping.
