The tourists will stay in the “tourism-resort-entertainment universe”, Phu Quoc United Center covering over 1,000 hectares in the North of Phu Quoc Island which is regarded as the Vietnam’s first-ever “sleepless city” inaugurated in April.
The visitors previously also enjoyed a performance of Ao Dai and received gifts when flying.
