Visitors flowing in Paradise City


Asia’s largest casino complex, Paradise City, located near Incheon International Airport west of Seoul, South Korea, claims it received some 310,000 visitors in its first 100 days of operation, Korean publication Chosun Ilbo reported.
Construction of the complex began in November 2014, and it currently includes a foreigner-only casino, a hotel and a convention centre, all operational.
A spokesperson for Paradise City was quoted as saying that “since the first part opened, about 90 per cent of hotel rooms have been occupied.”
The company also claims that the second part of the integrated resort is 55 per cent finished.
“Once it’s complete, the complex will emerge as a leading tourist attraction in Northeast Asia,” Paradise’s spokesperson stated.
Paradise City is operated as a joint venture between Paradise Group of Korea and Sega Sammy Holdings, a Japanese provider of slot machines.
Investment in the project amounts to 1.3 trillion won (US$1.16 billion/MOP9.33 billion).
