Michael Jackson 's dad Joe invests in property in Vietnam

News has emerged that Joe Jackson, father of the late king of pop Michael Jackson, has invested in a US$2 billion hotel and amusement park in Vietnam.

The project, called “Happy Land”, is set on a fifteen-hectare plot in Ben Luc District, Long An province in Vietnam, twenty minutes outside Ho Chi Minh City.

Scheduled for completion in May 2014, Happy Land will include a leisure park, a large-scale commercial centre, 3 to 5 star hotels, water parks, studio parks, discotheques, indoor and outdoor theatres, restaurants, shopping centres and a Vietnamese cultural centre.

Designed by architects Steelman Partners from Las Vegas, USA, Happy Land has an investment fund of US$2 billion, US$600 million of which has been reserved for the theme park.

Once complete, the complex will be the largest entertainment centre in Vietnam and the whole of South East Asia. Investors in the project are hoping to attract fourteen million tourists each year.

Whilst in Vietnam last week for the ground breaking ceremony Joe Jackson commented; “I like discovering different cultures in the world, I like this project the most because it is located in a beautiful cultural and natural space."

Eighty two year old Joe Jackson was the producer for the famous Jackson 5 band which was made up of his five sons. The youngest of them, Michael Jackson, went on to become the most successful pop singer in history.

Michael Jackson died in 2009, at the age of 50, from an overdose of the powerful anaesthetic Propofol and other sedatives.
