Spanish soccer club, Real Madrid, announced last week they would open an interactive "virtual reality" complex in Hengqin, in partnership with Hong Kong-listed developer, Lai Sun Group.
Just a stone's throw across a narrow waterway from the world's largest gambling hub Macau, Hengqin, a former oyster farming island, is being transformed into China's newest tourism haven.
Dubbed by some as China's answer to Florida's Orlando — a global tourist magnet with its cluster of major theme parks — Hengqin has seen property prices more than double over the past two years.
While still a dusty mass of construction sites, Hengqin now draws millions annually to its anchor attraction, the "Chimelong Ocean Kingdom" theme park, with a slew of hotel, malls and sprawling residential developments being built nearby.
The 12,000-square metre venue, set to open in 2021, will include virtual reality entertainment and a museum showcasing the club's history.
