1. South Korea:
Universal Studios will build a $2.7 billion theme park in Gyeonggi Province (37 miles southwest of Seoul). Paramount Pictures and MGM will also construct resort parks in Incheon. Eight such Seoul developments are expected to be in operation by 2012, and fourteen when you count the rest of the country. They hope to attract lost of visitors from China and Japan. HAWAII, WHAT ARE WE DOING?
China Beach (picture 100 yards of beach extending for 19 miles, a distance from Waikiki to Pearl Harbor and back to Waikiki) along a five-star mega resort, with five more being built, including a J.W. Marriott and a Hyatt, plus a casino and two golf courses. Another way to look at the length of China Beach is from Waikiki to Wahiawa. This is the type of attraction Hawaii will need to compete against into the future.
