Saigon Zoo And Botanical Garden : Hoh Chi Minh City Vietnam

I've been in Vietnam numerous times but my family's first visit to the country was so far the most memorable for me.  It's nicer to travel when you are in the company of your kids.  Our last trip to Hoh Chi Min City Vietnam took place April of last year and our one week of staying in the beautiful city of Saigon had enabled us to see a lot of interesting places and one of which is the Saigon Zoo and Botanical Garden located right in the heart of District 1, which is considered the city's tourist area.

Inside the botanical garden, you can see a lot of interesting spots like well landscaped gardens, plant arts and a number of breath taking views that is not only ideal for relaxation but for soul searching, as well. :)

Actually the place is a big compound which houses both the zoo and the botanical garden.  During our visit, we tried to check on the botanical garden first before we explore the zoo which is just on the other side of the area.  My daughter Mika was very happy to see the white tiger.  She told me that she hadn't seen one from the zoo's that she had visited in the Philippines yet.

Entrance fee to the zoo and botanical garden is quite cheap at VN20,000 or equivalent to USD1.  Not bad, huh? A lot of nice garden views really warms my heart being a plant lover myself.

And what more? Inside the botanical garden, feel delighted with a free acrobat show by Vietnamese performers.

VND20,000 for the entrance fee is really worth it! If you have the chance to visit Saigon Vietnam in one of your future trips, consider to have a quick tour at Saigon Zoo and Botanical Garden and you'll never go wrong with your visit. :) A must see at Hoh Chi Min City.
