The Manor Crown Hue: New Look, New Value for Hue

Bitexco has taken a new turn in its real estate development operations by venturing into a mountainous province. The high-profile developer, which has until now dedicated itself to high-end property developments in the downtown Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, last week broke ground for the construction of a township in Lao Cai province, 330 kilometres northeast of Vietnam's capital. The Manor Eco+ Lao Cai project will feature 441 villas and townhouses and 500 apartments. Construction will take three years and the cost of development is to come in at $72.5 million. This is the first modern township project in the province of Lao Cai, which borders China. Bitexco chairman Vu Quang Hoi accepted that the company initially found it challenging to develop a modern township in this mountainous province because of its distance from Hanoi. He said the local market had not been on the radar screen of real estate developers because of a perceived lack of demand for high-end housing in the province. However, Hoi said he was confident of the success of the project. "There are a number of local residents demanding luxury residences while we have also received demand from investors in Hanoi," said Hoi. He said the project had been designed with commercial purposes in mind with 300 villas and townhouses having ground floor shop fronts and upper floor residences. "With this design, the project will become a busy trading area in the northern border area as Lao Cai is part of Hanoi-Kuming economic corridor…... [read more]

In a recent scene in Ho Chi Minh City, hundreds of people scrambled into a small room in hope of receiving a certain coupon But not for rice or meat purchase, a common image in the early 1980s when the economy was subsidised by the Soviet Union and goods were scarce. These people were hoping to win a lucky draw that would allow them to purchase an apartment at Green View, a new project by Phu My Hung Corporation in the south of the city. It was an unusual scene considering Vietnam's annual per capita income is $740 and a Green View apartment costs around $200,000 on average. But no matter in a property market that is expanding rapidly, drawing even the least-likely of potential owners. Only 42 lucky people would become new residents of Phu My Hung, a high-profile developer that has sold more than 6,000 housing units over the last few years. Phu My Hung International marketing director Alpha Cheng said at the recent Euromoney conference that the company initially expected to sell villas to foreigners but that most buyers were instead Vietnamese. It stands as an indication of the real purchasing power of Vietnamese in their new market-based economy. While much of the population is still living on agriculture, urban residents are quickly getting richer on the back of high economic growth, fast-expanding foreign investment and foreign remittance of some $4 billion per year.The stock market, which grew 134 per cent last year, also creates an impetus…...

Bot just any bomb, but one with a detonator. Instead of running for his life, Nguyen Cuu M. decided to satisfy his curiosity. — Photo vitalk.vn “I was very curious to see the bomb. I went to hold the bomb to know how big it is. I asked my companion to take a photo of me and the bomb,” he said. He said the bomb was about 1.2 metres long and had a diameter of an adult’s arm span. Luckily, the bomb did not explode and he can boast of his daring and show the photos to others. But Colonel Nguyen Hong Son, head of the province’s military command, was not amused. He said people who detect unexploded ordnances (UXOs), usually left over from the Vietnam War, should report them immediately to local military authorities for proper handling. Despite extensive public information campaigns about the dangers of UXOs, in May police in the central province of Quang Tri arrested six members of…... [read more]

Do Xuan Loi during the trial at the People’s Court in the southern Vietnamese province of Binh Duong on August 15, 2017 The People’s Court in the southern province of Binh Duong gave Do Xuan Loi, 34, hailing from the north-central province of Thua Thien- Hue, the death penalty at the conclusion of his trial on August 15. Loi was the leader of a drug ring that operated across provinces from northern to southern Vietnam. He was charged with the sale and storage of drugs and the storage of military weapons. Three other members of the ring, namely Truong Ngoc Huan, Loi’s brother in-law, Tran Hung Tam, and Tran Manh Hung, all received life sentences for the sale of drugs. Four other members were given 20 year sentences each. According to the indictment, in 2015, Loi and his accomplices transported a total of seven kilograms of drugs from the northern city of Hai Phong to the southern region before distributing it to local addicts in small bags, each weighing 50 to 100 grams.

The two suspects claimed they had bought the products from Loi. Police in Dong Nai later coordinated with their counterparts in Binh Duong Province to capture the mastermind and his associates.

Forest rangers in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue have rescued an endangered red-shanked douc langur after locals caught the animal entering a residential area. Nguyen Quang, a resident of Lang Co Town, captured the douc langur after he saw it being chased into his garden by dogs on Sunday afternoon. Local forest rangers quickly arrived at the scene and Quang handed the endangered primate over to them. The red-shanked douc langur captured by Quang. Photo courtesy of Voice of Vietnam The douc langur was found to be a young, healthy male weighing about 6.5 kilograms (14 pounds), according to VietnamPlus. However, Voice of Vietnam (VOV) claimed the animal had an injured leg. Phu Loc District's forest rangers on Monday afternoon transferred the douc to the Endangered Primate Rescue Center (EPRC) at Cuc Phuong National Park in the northern province of Ninh Binh, VietnamPlus reported. The red-shanked douc langur (Pygathrix nemaeus) is sometimes called the “costumed ape” or the “Queen of primates” due to its amazing colors: maroon-red from its knees to ankles, white forearms, black hands and feet, a golden face with a white ruff, blue eyelids and a white tail. The International Union for Conservation of Nature lists the species as endangered and the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora prohibits its international trade. Vietnam, which is a CITES signatory, also has laws to protect the primate but they have been difficult to enforce. In November last year, Thua Thien-Hue authorities spotted…... [read more]
