This ...er... 'thing' is like just being teleported from nowhere to....nowhere.

Anyway, I sooooooo hate fake mountains how many real mountains, cliffs, hills have been destroyed to make them.....

I'm not against it but it seems any guy with a bunch of bucks could absolutly make tha wildest dream comes true.

Nice pagoda but torture me with durian and i still say that I don't see anything vietnamese there, u put it in "Guess the Location" and no one will even think about Vietnam. Believe me, I bet my fortune that this guy riding Wave Alpha has chinese roots. But he's filthy RICH....and he put his money into that huge-ass pa....no financial advisor, no charity foundation rang him....I cannot believe it.

OMG it's so beautiful. I love it. I've always been jealous of the Chinese for recreating big-a$$ magnificent structures and able to afford all those restoration works.

Let's hope the Purple Forbidden City will have its damaged walls and buildings be restored or reconstructed as well.

i give credits for the efforts of trying to building something cultural on the massive scale...beyond that this complex is horrible...

it looks too amusement-park like...seriously i thought this was another version of Suối Tin park in saigon...especially the massive dragon

but to be a cultural icon...a big big disappointment... if you want to do something like this..DO IT SERIOUSLY.....the ideas and designs are tơo messy...read the related article...

the fake mountians are horrible...

it's massive, (big isnt everything) it's expensive (a waste of 200 millions dollars).....man we ned high quality architecture not chesy ones....Cha Một Cột is small but it is a unique design...its not a incoincident that it is an instant recognizible image of Hanoi or Vietnam

wait never mind...IT IS a AMUSEMENT PARK..for the complex will eventually includes


"Cc hạng mục tiếp theo sẽ l Vịnh Hạ Long thu nhỏ với diện tch mặt biển 18 hecta; sng Cửu Long thu nhỏ; cng với sự ti hiện cc kỳ quan thế giới như thp Eiffel, điện Kremlin, Vạn l trường thnh, đền Angkor "

then you cant call and take this project seriously as a 'cultural place' as the article states..

Well the primary purpose is to make a profit, not building a white elephant cultural icon. I think this project is great, paving way for future improvements and hopefully an authentic recreation of ancient Vietnam's daily life, like Korea's cultural park.

This is more like light family entertainment with a twist of culture.

I'm not complaining. At least there'll be somewhere else to go when I visit Vietnam in 2-3 years instead of just Suoi Tien and Dam Sen. Suoi Tien was horrible though.

BTW, the guy who's building this complex is a native of Binh Dinh, the home of Tay Son and the legendary Emperor Quang Trung Nguyen Hue.

Yes I've been to the FPC last year. It was so sad to see much of the complex was in ruins, with less than half still standing and even fewer in good condition. What could be restored should be restored, what has been totally destroyed should be build true to their original design.

It is very difficult to restore the destroyed buildings in Hue....barely any documents left. but the essential parts are still standing. I've been in Hue like last 2 years and it was very nice.

Still, the huge-ass pagoda thinggie is unbelievable..i said, this guy is haunted by Hong Kong Kiem Hiep movies....it seems lke u guys like it, nvm.

Btw, Binh Duong (Song Be) is about 8 miles from Saigon, not too far in the North but it's not Saigon's suburb.

What a project, instead of putting $200 millions to develope our own culture like inventing our own indeginous archituretural style,these people are spending money to preserve foreign-influenced (chinese in this case) architectural style in our culture.

You mean Hoang Thanh of Thang Long? because there are many pictures taken of the palace before the war, and there are tons of sources about it.
