The appearance of Sun World Halong Complex, which is an exceptionally big tourism and entertainment project, has contributed largely to the attraction of Halong Bay. Consisting of several fascinating categories, this complex is undoubtedly a must-see for any Halong Bay tours. Let’s explore the Queen Cable Car – one of the highlights of Sunworld Halong.
About the Queen Cable Car
Queen Cable Car belongs to Sunworld Halong Complex which covers an area of 200 hectares and started to be opened for tourists since June 2016. This is a consultancy and design work of an Austrian – Swiss company called Doppelmayr Garaventa Group – the world’s leading manufacturer of ropeways, cable cars, and ski lifts.
Queen Cable Car has a really impressive length. The cable covers a total inclined length of nearly 2,000 meters, including 2 towers and 2 cabins. There are 02 concrete towers on two sides of the Bay, one is 188.88 meters tall and the other is 123.45 meters. It is reported by Doppelmayr Garaventa to be of the biggest size in the world ever built for such a reversible aerial tramway.
This 2016-built cable car has won 2 World Guinness Records for:
- The highest passenger capacity in a cable car cabin (230 passengers per cabin)
