The Kong: Skull Island (aka King Kong 2) is appealing on its own after the big victory of the King Kong 1 film (2015). For the fans of the film about this legendary monster, the news that this Hollywood film will be processed in Vietnam really interests them. What does Vietnam have for a Hollywood project? Of course, this beautiful S-shaped country has numerous extraordinarily natural attractions to be filmed, and within this King Kong franchise, the three appointed destinations are Ninh Binh, Quang Binh, and Halong Bay, which win the wholehearted praises from Hollywood celebrities.

As the Vietnam attractions in King Kong 2 are scenic and untouched, the film crew have committed to respecting the natural environment in any place that they come to film. Hopefully, the Kong: Skull Island will hit the theater in 2017, and Vietnam is said to cover around 10% of the film’s entire expense. While Hollywood appreciates Vietnam’s picturesque and pure attractiveness, Vietnam takes Hollywood’s appreciation as the valuable chance to promote her tourism internationally.
