Kiss Bridge was officially opened
After many days of anticipation, the Kiss Bridge project, an artistic masterpiece by the famous Italian designer Marco Casamonti, was officially opened to tourists on December 23, promising to become the most attractive destination on the pearl island.
The Kissing Bridge is 800m long and consists of the north and south branches, which form a single unit but have no connection, being 30cm apart – perfect for a hug, handshake or kiss. This distance is carefully calculated so that the sunset falls in the middle of the two peaks of the bridge on January 1st every year, making this place one of the “most beautiful places to watch the sunset in the world”.
The Kiss Bridge has a cantilever structure (horizontal bridge structure with only one end fixed and the other end free) up to 25 m long, supported by columns inclined at 65 degrees. The total weight of the cantilever structure on each side is up to 400 tons, which is equivalent to compressing 40 buses and hanging precariously in the middle of the sea with two tilted poles. With this inclined pillar structure, Kiss Bridge has created something unprecedented in a footbridge on the sea, giving Phu Quoc and Vietnam tourism a distinctive symbol.
Kiss Bridge, designed as a sculpture on the surface of the sea, surprises the architectural world with its difficulty, because the soft lines like a strip of silk stretching in the middle of the sea are also the structure that creates the stability of the bridge.
The bridge, with its unprecedented design and structure, is expected to create a “second Golden Bridge phenomenon” for Vietnamese tourism.
La Festa Phu Quoc, Curio Collection by Hilton Hotel welcomes guests
La Festa Phu Quoc, Curio Collection by Hilton Hotel – the next anticipated “amazing product” in Phu Quoc, also officially opened from December 21. Curio Collection, Hilton Group’s most luxurious brand, makes its first appearance in Vietnam with this project. The brand is known worldwide for its unique local experiences and full-class service.
Located in the center of Sunset Town, La Festa Phu Quoc is one of the rare hotels with a beautiful view of the Kiss Bridge. In addition to its excellent location, the unique design with a strong Mediterranean influence is also an impressive highlight of the hotel, with the typical colors and materials of the coastal town of Amalfi and orange-red walls and delicate pastel colors. The hotel has 197 rooms divided into 13 categories with restaurants, clubs, lounges and more, designed in harmony with the liberal space of Phu Quoc’s territorial waters.
From here, tourists can easily travel to other attractive entertainment destinations such as: Kiss Bridge, Hon Thom Gondola, Vui-Fest Bazaar night market or watch the Kiss Of The Sea multimedia show on the large water surface.
