2008 News Archive - Holidays - Exciting times for Virginia Beach
21 12 2006
Virginia Beach is currently attracting major interest from South Korean developers, who hope to capitalise on the resort's thriving tourism industry.
With the longest pleasure beach in the world, it is hardly surprising that Virginia Beach has emerged as one of the world's most popular holiday destinations. The soft sands are of course the primary attraction for many, but other holidaymakers in Virginia find themselves preoccupied with watersports, the exhilarating water park or the endless other attractions that line the picturesque coast.
And, in recognition of Virginia's reputation as a tourism hotspot, Sun Rise Development Company now wants to pump huge sums of money into the area. The South Korean firm has plans for condominiums, an amusement park, luxurious hotels and a golf academy, according to reports obtained by the Virginian-Pilot.
Sun Rise intends to market its developments in China and Korea, but it seems certain that proposals of this nature would generate worldwide appeal.
There are, however, relatively strict planning rules around Virginia Beach, which have helped to ensure the resort has not lost its charm over the years.
Sun Rise will have to overcome these stumbling blocks before any progress is made and reports suggest that it will be several years before permission is granted.
