ABOUT SUN GROUP
Officially established in Vietnam in 2007 by a group of young Vietnamese intellectuals living in Ukraine, Sun Group has now emerged as one of the leading real estate and tourism developers in Vietnam with 61 member corporations and more than 6,000 employees nationwide.
With a focus on strategically investing across four main categories — Leisure Travel, Recreation and Entertainment, Real Estate, Infrastructure — and placing an emphasis on the three core values of “Quality – Luxury – Difference”, Sun Group has created many prestigious and iconic landmarks, which have been hailed as architectural masterpieces.
Since developing its first project, Sun World Ba Na Hills in Da Nang, completed in 2009, Sun Group has gone to become a leading company in the field of tourism development, investing and developing award-winning resorts and attractions that have raised the profile of Vietnam as an international destination in the eyes of the world.

In 2019, Sun Group has unveiled three major transport infrastructure projects in Quang Ninh Province, namely Van Don International Airport, Ha Long International Cruise Port and Ha Long – Van Don Expressway. These landmark projects will transform the local economy by drawing more domestic and international tourists while creating more development opportunities for Quang Ninh province in particular and Vietnam in general.
Besides flying the flag for Vietnam, enhancing its reputation as one of the most attractive destinations for tourism in the region and putting it on the world’s tourism map, Sun Group also made significant contributions to improving the life quality of local people, aestheticizing and enriching the country. The group has also strived to promote a new image of Vietnamese people as highly skilled, knowledgeable and dynamic people, ensuring Vietnam’s human resources keep pace with the rest of the world.
