Local authorities called the complex a tourism mart. According to the local tourism department, the mart will be a righteous place for visitors to Hue to enjoy.

The mart will be built at An Dong, a new urban zone east of the city. It will be built around a lake surrounded with trees, creating a green and natural ambiance.

Under the mart’s master plan approved by local authorities in early July, the mart’s core will also include a square and small parks.

The core nearby areas will be reserved for a tourist information centre, a trade centre, a floating market and duty-free stores.

Hotel facilities and leasing offices will be located in the rear of the mart, with a hotel capable of housing 320 people each day.

In the area beside the mart, authorities plan to build a residential area with room for 1,200 residents.

Authorities also plan to place public toilets along the roads in the mart and a separate system for collecting rubbish.
