Among the list of awards that Vietnam was bestowed are “World’s leading destination for Heritage”, “World’s best destination for golf” and “Asia’s leading attractive destination”.

Winning these prestigious awards certainly recognizes the outstanding quality of Sun Group’s projects and strategic vision, which is in line with the orientation in Resolution No. 08 of the Politburo on developing tourism to spearhead the country’s economic sector. These awards are also a source of pride for the whole Vietnam tourism industry as the country continues on its journey toward becoming one of the most attractive destinations in the region and the world.”
