Casino Opens in Da Nang, Vietnam

Ribbon cutting at Silver Shores Casino

(Da Nang, Vietnam) Under construction since 2006, Vietnam's largest casino opened this week in Da Nang.
The European-style casino occupies 15,000 square meters in the Silver Shores Da Nang resort, which has 548 5-star hotel rooms, 52 high-end villas facing the sea and a 20-hectare international conference center that can host 1,000 people.

It targets tourists from mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. [...]

China South Airlines has arranged two flights every Wednesday and Saturday to bring people from Guangzhou to the resort.

Silver Shores also plans to open an airline from Shanghai to Da Nang three months later.
Only people with foreign visas are authorized to enter the casino, including expats and overseas Vietnamese visitors.

Incidentally, Da Nang hosted a large U.S. military base during the Vietnam War. Therefore, the name is quite familiar to many U.S. veterans.
