99-storey Domino Tower to be built in Ha Long Bay

From the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai to the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur, tall buildings in the world are the symbol of luxury. Not only do they boast awe-inspiring architecture, but are also among the world’s most checked-in places by global visitors who want to capture Instagram-worthy snapshots. 

In the near, foreseeable future, Vietnamese citizens will be able to travel to one of the world’s tallest buildings without leaving the country. All you’ll have to do is to book a train ticket to Ha Long in Quang Ninh Province, check in at Domino Tower, ascend to the 99th storey, and enjoy the thrilling views of the surrounding landscape.

Developed by Sun Group, Domino Tower, a luxury hotel situated within the Sun Ha Long Ocean Park project, will be built on a 12.5-hectare artificial island linked to the mainland by a bridge.

Built in a spiral shape, the structure will boast 99 stories over a height of 540M when completed, with sweeping views over the gorgeous Ha Long Bay.

Upon its completion, Domino Tower, which will house numerous service apartments and entertainment facilities, will become the tallest structure in Southeast Asia and the 8th tallest tower in the world.  

What sets Domino Tower apart is that its location bears a striking resemblance to the iconic Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai, which also sits on an artificial island.

Even though it might take some more years to complete Domino Tower, the enthralling feeling and views that you’ll enjoy while standing on level 99 of the structure is totally worth the wait. You’ll be treated to a widespread view of the entire Ha Long Bay, a world UNESCO Heritage home to over 1,600 islands and its stunning surroundings. 

Once the tower is completed, you won’t have to travel all the way to other countries’ fancy hotels to feel as if you’re on cloud nine anymore.
