A series of exciting events attracting tens of thousands of attenders and luring tourists from all over the country is a signal showing that Quy Nhon is becoming a rendezvous of super events. This is also a big motivation to change the position of the coastal city on the Asian tourist map.
Quy Nhon – A must-visit summer destination
“On weekends, it is very difficult to book a hotel room in Quy Nhon. I had to change the hotel room twice in 3 days as rooms were booked by tourists a month earlier,” said Mr. Ho The, an office worker who often goes on business to Quy Nhon. Tourists now choose Quy Nhon as a new tourist destination when Phu Quoc and Nha Trang have become boringly familiar to them.
The second time travelling to Quy Nhon, Ms. Anh Tuyet from HCMC exclaimed that the coastal city is still as beautiful as her first impression. The difference that makes new attraction for the coastal city is that the service experiences have become more multicolored. “Night activities are richer, beach sports are more diverse. There are modern water music performances and elite Binh Dinh martial arts performances on Hai Giang peninsula at the weekend,” said Ms. Tuyet.
Observations from tourists will make it easier to understand why Quy Nhon – Binh Dinh is always among the localities with the fastest tourism recovery after social distancing. Statistics from the Binh Dinh Department of Tourism show that most resorts and luxury hotels in Quy Nhon City recorded room occupancy of up to 90-100% during the holidays earlier this year. In the first quarter of 2022, the province welcomed nearly one million visitors, an increase of 23.9% against the same period in 2021, surpassing other famous tourism destinations. Especially, tourism revenue in the first six months of 2022 of Binh Dinh jumped 239.4% year-on-year. In 2022, Binh Dinh Province targets four million domestic and international tourists, and aims to become Asia’s leading destination by 2030.
Besides famous natural destinations, in order to attract tourists, Binh Dinh Province plans to organize a series of exciting, large-scale activities to attract tourists from all over the country. Enterprises such as Hung Thinh Corporation are joining hands in order to make Quy Nhon become a destination of the most attractive events in the country.
For example, from July 16 to August 13, 2022, Quy Nhon will host the final round of Miss World Vietnam 2022 for the first time, which is expected to woo tens of thousands of tourists to the coastal city. Miss World Vietnam 2022 has officially announced MerryLand Quy Nhon – a world-class smart commercial tourism peninsula city project located in Hai Giang – is a place to host the national final round.
Nearly 30 days in a row, at MerryLand Quy Nhon, there will be a series of attractive activities such as Sports Beauty, Head to Head Challenge, Music Festival & Sea Beauties, and Vietnam Beauty Fashion Fest among others.
Earlier, Binh Dinh Province opened Quy Nhon Sea Tourism Festival 2022 with the theme “Quy Nhon – Sea Paradise” going on throughout the summer. MerryLand Quy Nhon Running Prize on April 30 attracted over 3,000 families inside and outside the province to participate. The number of visitors to Quy Nhon continued to increase impressively through VnExpress Marathon Sparkling Quy Nhon Running Prize from June 11 to June 12 with over 10,000 runners and tens of thousands of visitors arriving in the coastal city on this occasion.
They all resonate and make Quy Nhon become the hottest destination on the 2022 summer tourist map.
“Capital” of super events in the coastal city
In a series of events in Quy Nhon, it is easy to see the cooperation of Hung Thinh Corporation with MerryLand Quy Nhon project in the role of the host destination. Built to become an international destination with a series of record projects that bear the hallmarks of the five continents blended with local cultural identities, MerryLand Quy Nhon is eligible to become a “capital” of super events in the coastal city.
With the total investment of nearly US$2.5 billion in the first phase and spanning 695 hectares, the “Tropical Wonder” MerryLand Quy Nhon is contributing to completely changing the tourism picture in Quy Nhon. Unprecedented experiences in Quy Nhon are gradually emerging. These include water music performances combined with 3D mapping, sound and lighting, and endless shopping and entertaining activities. These also include the convergence of countless international festivals and rich cultural events taking place day and night.
The representative of the investor, Hung Thinh Corporation, noted that in order to ensure MerryLand Quy Nhon will become a “funnel” to welcome high-class international visitors, and to prepare infrastructure for super events that will take place, Hung Thinh Corporation has joined hands with nearly 20 global brands in the fields of planning, architecture, operation management… Famous names include Marriot, Sheraton, Samsung Everland, Boston Consulting Group (BCG), and Laservison to name but a few. According to calculations, MerryLand Quy Nhon will serve 37,000 visitors per day and night, a huge number but completely feasible with a land which has lots of development spaces like Hai Giang peninsula – Quy Nhon, especially in the context that Binh Dinh Province has identified tourism as a key economic sector, with sea tourism as the focus of development.
According to experts, Quy Nhon is holding all the potential of a flourishing tourism market. The tourism potential of Quy Nhon is high and the wave of tourism has just begun.
