Construction on a four-star resort at Ban Gioc waterfalls in Trung Khanh district, the mountainous northern province of Cao Bang, began on December 8.
The 170 billion VND resort developed by Saigon Tourist Holding Company covers 31 hectares and will include 60 hotel rooms, 24 villas, and a 200 seat conference hall and recreation area.
The first phase of the project is expected to be operational by late 2013.
The Saigon-Ban Gioc resort, the first of its kind in Cao Bang province, plays an important role in provincial tourism development, border defence and development.
It is part of a cooperation programme between Ho Chi Minh City and Cao Bang province.
