12 national records set in Ba Ria - Vung Tau
The Vietnam Record Book Centre (Vietkings) on October 20 unveiled 12 Vietnamese records set in Ba Ria - Vung Tau province.
This is a result of the search for Vietnamese records that have been broken since 2009.
These new records include: Vietnam’s first tourism city in Vung Tau; the first and biggest oil and gas centre in Vung Tau; the first dictionary which explains ethnic languages in Vietnamese script; a project to install new solar energy light bulbs in the provincial Martyr Cemetery; the biggest national flag-shaped kite; a locality with the most sea port systems; the biggest private ancient weapon museum; an island with the longest history of revolutionary struggle in Con Dao; the biggest marine defense platform DK1; the biggest deep-water port; the longest gas pipeline; and the eco-tourism resort with the largest artificial mountain lake.
VietKings has co-operated with the province to compile Ba Ria - Vung Tau Record Book from 2009-2011 which lists 108 World and 12 Vietnamese records in the areas of human, nature, historical events, culture-tourism, festivals, art, architecture, construction works, economics, science and technology, education-health-sports, and social life.
