Restoration work has been underway for more than 20 days and two out of three tasks have been completed, said a representative from the Trang An Landscape Management Board. The restored area is part of the tribal village depicted in the movie, with dozen of rattan tents being set up with decorative items.
Models of a ship and airplane resembling those used in Kong: Skull Island will also be exhibited at the site, where parts of the movie were filmed and therefore named "Skull island." The "island" lies within the Trang An Landscape Complex.
According to the Trang An Landscape Management Board, since the American studio was not charged for filming here, the local authority was permitted to restore and turn the site into a tourism spot a certain period of time after the film’s release.
