The single-floor home has been the dwelling place for the artist and his family since January, featuring five bathrooms, a laundry room, dressing room, fitness center, kitchen, and a variety of other luxurious amenities.

The distinguished vocalist has infused his home with a contemporary European style, meticulously tailoring every aspect to align with his personal taste. The estate boasts significant highlights, including a sprawling garden, a swimming pool, a bar, and designated areas for BBQ and open-air dining.

At the age of 75, Bao Quoc hails from a family deeply rooted in the performing arts, with his father being a celebrated cai luong artist in the Southern region, and his mother being the proprietor of one of the top five cai luong troupes between the 1950s and 1972.

He has distinguished himself through numerous acclaimed roles and was honored with the Merited Artist title by the government in 1991.

Bao Quoc currently relishes good health and life in the U.S. with his spouse and their daughter’s family, leading a life marked by health-conscious choices.

Following a surgical procedure in 2016, he has excluded starchy foods and sugar from his diet. His daily routine commences with an early rise, followed by physical exercise, morning walks with his wife, and a nutritious breakfast. The period leading up to lunch is reserved for reading newspapers and watching television.

In the afternoons, Bao Quoc and his spouse enjoy shopping, particularly for flowering plants to adorn their garden. The couple strengthens family bonds through shared explorations. For each holiday or family member’s birthday, they embark on road trips and engage in camping activities.
