Reading Time: 2 minutes

Austrian engineering firm Doppelmayr, known for its purpose-built cable cars around the world, on February 4 open its latest masterpiece, the longest aerial tramway in the world in Vietnam.

The cable car, at a length of about eight kilometers, connects the two holiday islands of Phu Quoc and Hon Thom in southern Vietnam. It is one and a half kilometer longer than the previous record holder, a cable car running up Vietnam’s highest mountain and the highest in Indochina, Fansipan, also built by Doppelmayr.

The new cable line uses six poles as high as 164 meters to connect the two islands at a travelling time of some 15 minutes. One cabin can carry up to 30 people.

The line has been commissioned by Vietnam’s Sun Group Corporation, a company focusing on high-end tourism and leisure developments, as well as property development and infrastructure. Sun Group also was the commissioning firm of another remarkable Doppelmayr cable car across Halong Bay in northern Vietnam, as well as the world’s longest detachable gondola lift, Bana Big Ropeway in Bana Hills near Danang. Both are mentioned in the Guinness Book of Records for their specific technical features.

With the new ropeway installation, Sun Group Corporation seeks to contribute to the development of tourism in Vietnam. The islands in the south of the country are already a popular visitor destination, and the new cable car has become a major part of the infrastructure. In the near future, the region is set to become an attractive vacation hotspot offering a wide range of leisure activities and modern accommodation.
