Tom Hiddleston, another star of the film, also landed on in Vietnam 3 days later. The actor greeted Vietnamese fans in their country’s language and sent a smile to the media.
The crew of 124 members will shoot scenes in Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, Rao Nan River and Yen Phu Lake in Quang Binh Province before moving to Trang An, Van Long and Tam Coc of Ninh Binh and Ha Long Bay in Quang Ninh.
