WTA Asia & Oceania also named Van Don International Airport, developed by Sun Group in Quang Ninh province, with a hugely prestigious prize: “Asia’s Leading New Airport”. Receiving this award is an honor, not only for Sun Group and Quang Ninh province, but also for the Vietnamese aviation industry - it is the first time a Vietnamese airport has won an award at WTA.

“Winning these awards is an honor for Sun Group and recognizes the tireless efforts of our organization, which has always sought to transform the tourism industry in Vietnam by delivering uniquely designed, luxurious and high-quality tourism products,” Dang Minh Truong, Chairman of Sun Group.

“I believe that this recognition from World Travel Awards Asia & Oceania and World Luxury Hotel Awards will help fly the flag for Vietnam throughout the region and on the world map. These achievements are also a strong motivation for Sun Group to continue on our mission to create more timeless landmarks that will contribute to the dynamic development of Vietnam’s tourism industry” he added.

Since its inception in Vietnam in 2007, Sun Group has gradually affirmed its leading position as a developer of world-class tourism products and service, infrastructure and tourism real estate.

The group has helped to raise the profile of Vietnam on the world’s tourism map. Winning 23 prestigious awards certainly recognizes the outstanding quality of Sun Group’s projects and strategic vision.

These awards are also a great honor and source of pride for the whole Vietnam tourism industry as the country continues on its journey toward becoming one of the most attractive destinations in the region and the world.
