Vietnam builds the 'world's first' 24 carat gold-coated hotel

The Golden Lake hotel-apartment complex in Hanoi has been crowned the world's first gold-plated hotel, with construction expected to be complete in 2020. Footage from May 21, shows the glistening gold-plated exterior which startles passers-by and according to local media, has 5,000 square meters of gilded ceramic on the outside. The complex, which began construction in 2009, is 25-storeys high and located in the downtown Ba Dinh district of Hanoi, on the bank of the Giang Vo Lake. Built by the Hoa Binh group, the Golden Lake boasts 24 carat gilded furniture, a rooftop infinity pool, and with a price tag of $6,500 per square meter, the complex is now one of the capital’s prime locations. Nguyen Huu Duong, general director of the Hoa Binh Group, claims that the Golden Lake would become the world's first gold-plated hotel.
