Hanoi plans to build a 500 million USD multifunctional entertainment complex with a horse racing course in Soc Son district.

The city’s draft report on adjustments of the city’s master plan for socio-economic development towards 2020 with a vision to 2030, which has been sent to ministries and sectors to gather their opinions, included the proposal to build the complex.

The horse racing track is expected to boost local tourism.
