People were eager to watch as majority of the film was shot in Vietnam and showcased scenes of popular tourist attractions like northern Ninh Binh, Quang Ninh and central Quang Binh provinces. The movie was filmed in several heritage sites all through Vietnam. Some of them are like such as the UNESCO World Heritage Site Ha Long Bay in Quang Ninh, Trang An Complex in Ninh Binh, Tam Coc-Van Long Natural Reserve, as well as the Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park located in Quang Binh.

 

The movie was released officially in Vietnam and other countries last Friday. It narrates the story of a group of explorers who go into the jungle to find out the birthplace of the lord of giant apes. As per official confirmation, the film has earned 142 million U.S. dollars worldwide. It has already created positive reviews among professional critics and audiences.

 

The country’s Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism, Nguyen Ngoc Thien officially declared last Friday that Jordan Vogt-Roberts, director of “Kong: Skull Island,” would be the new tourism ambassador of the country while catching on the boost that Kong can provide to Vietnam and its travel and tourism industry.
