Suoi Tien Theme Park at Saigon

If you're planning to have a trip to Ho Chi Minh City, more popularly known as Saigon, I recommend that you take time to visit Suio Tien Theme Park.  Having visited Saigon a number of times, I would say that this beautiful city of Vietnam has a lot to offer compared to it's capital, Hanoi where mostly you could only find beaches.  The first out of the country trip of my kids is actually in Saigon and they have really enjoyed the theme parks there as well as our food trips.  Everything is cheap at Vietnam, I think even cheaper as compared to Bangkok.  The only difference is that Bangkok has lot more to offer in terms of shopping.

Anyway, I will be featuring more of Vietnam in my future posts but for now, I want to share our Suio Tien Theme Park adventure.

Suio Tien is located at Than Pu Ward District 9, Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam.   This is not a Disneyland type of theme park where you could see a lot of Disney characters in their colorful suits, neither you can see much of mascots and the likes.  Suio Tien is a mixture of entertainment and an expression of Vietnam's cultural heritage.  Inside the huge theme park, you could see a lot of giant statues of Buddhas in different forms and shapes.  This place s popular among locals and this would be a best opportunity for you to interact with Vietnam people and know more about their culture.

Everything is colorful inside the theme park and you wouldn't run out of photo opps (lol).  Below are samples of what you can see inside the park.

    



















There are lots of interesting attractions that you could see inside the theme park and that includes various rides and haunted house.

There's also a Lazer Zone wherein the entrance fee is much cheaper as compared to Manila



Entrance to the Crocodile Farm







4D theater



There is also a mini zoo inside the park.

You will really forget the passing of time while inside the park.  There are lots of stalls where you can buy some snacks and a food court if you prefer a heavier meal.  Inside, there are also souvenir shops where you can get some good items for "pasalubong".

You will be amazed by the price.  Entrance fee is only VND80K or about $4 but this does not include the rides.  But I think that it is not a problem at all since each ride will only costs you around $1. This park is an amazing value for what you pay. You may also opt to bring some swim suits as there is also a water park inside with giant pools and slides.

Overall, I find that visiting Suoi Tien Theme Park is indeed a good experience for the whole family.

  6. Are they influenced by the Chinese? Most of the monuments are parang Chinese inspired kasi... The park though is a must-see when in Vietnam. Thanks for bringing us there. :)
