‘Miniature Venice’ in the heart of Phu Quoc

KIEN GIANG – The miniature city of Venice is located in the north of pearl island, attracting visitors with experiences reminiscent of Italy.

The miniature city of Venice is located in the Grand World entertainment and resort complex of Phu Quoc United Center, north of Phu Quoc Island. Simulating the famous city of northern Italy, the Venice canal here has a total area of ​​​​1,000 m2, drawing water directly from the sea. Photo: Trung Nghia

The canal is 400 m long, 25 m wide, with jade green color. On both sides are brightly colored houses. The colors of the houses are reminiscent of the island of Burano in Venice. The houses of all colors white, blue, red, orange and yellow in the water are what attracts tourists when visiting Burano, now recreated in the heart of Phu Quoc. Photo: Trung Nghia

The gondolas are an indispensable experience when visiting Venice. The boatman wears a red and white striped uniform, the national style standard in the shape of a boot. The speed of the boat is slow, bringing visitors back to the distant Italy. Ticket price for a cruise is 150,000 VND/person. Photo: Huynh Nhi
