Construction on a 31.15 hectare resort next to the famous Ban Gioc Waterfall, which lies on the border between Vietnam and China, was started in the northern province of Cao Bang on Sunday.
With the total investment of VND170 billion (US$8.06 million), the project will start operating next year end when its first stage is completed.
Tran Hung Viet, director general Saigontourist, the project's investor, said the resort's design was inspired by local architecture.
