On 21 April, Vingroup officially opened Phu Quoc United Centre, its brand new super tourism-resort-entertainment complex in Southeast Asia. Setting five national records, featuring thousands of annual grand multimedia shows, mini-shows and offering one-of-a-kind experiences, Phu Quoc United Centre – known as Vietnam’s “Sleepless City” – is poised to become a must-go destination on the global tourism map.

On the occasion of its launch, Phu Quoc United Centre will also kick-start a series of boisterous 24/7 events, including 7,200 grand multimedia shows and 12,000 mini-shows every year.
Among its attractions is Vietnam’s largest bamboo construction, Bamboo Legend, 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. The world-renowned Teddy Bear Museum, meanwhile, houses bears of all kinds and all sizes to thrill everyone from the very young to the young at heart.
The show “The Elite of Vietnam” is a 3D multimedia show loaded with Vietnamese historical references. Comprising nearly 3000 daytime mini-shows and 365 nocturnal 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. A 15-thousand-square-metre underground stage recreates an idyllic and picturesque Venice through Valse dances, lighting, music and performances on the water surface.
World-class light water show, called “Once Show” is arranged and performed by famous Quantum Creative Studios, and features a breath-taking world of fairytales made from water, lighting, fire, ice and 3D mapping.
