Quang Binh Province aims to organise tourism service in the set of the movie “Kong: Skull Island”, which is expected to be a new Hollywood blockbuster and in turn bring great advantages to tourism in countries where the film was shot.

Vietnam is one of the three destinations selected for the filming process, along with Hawaii and Australia, thanks to the unspoilt natural scenes it possesses.

The USD-195-million Hollywood project provides a golden opportunity to propagandise Vietnamese country, its landscape, culture and localities to over the world.

Quang Binh government has negotiated with the movie crew to build a Kong’s arm-shaped statues in Yen Phu lake, Cha Noi valley and Chuot cave, planning it as a way of attracting tourists to the locations.

They also decided to sign a contract with the website TripAdvisor to promote the tourism at local destinations, aiming to improve the tourist service at Quang Binh.

Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts said that Vietnam provided the “perfect aesthetic” for his movie:

“The look of Vietnam is gorgeous and otherworldly at the same time,” said Vogt-Robert “There’s such a raw, powerful and unspoilt beauty that general audiences hadn’t experienced on screen before.”
