What is the difference between Dam Sen Park and Dai Nam Park? How to get to these themeparks?

by Chyan

Hi, Ho Chi Minh City VT,

Has anyone visited Dam Sen Park and Dai Nam Park in Ho Chi Minh City? Is there any difference between these themeparks? How to get to these themeparks from Sheraton Saigon Hotel and how much are the transportation costs?

OK. I ve been to Dam Sen Park, I mean, it's a park ... Dai Nam is new so I think it's probably better. Here is the information.

OK. I ve been to Dam Sen Park - they have water park with water games and the other parts are games - very crowded at the time i were there so it's not that relaxing. You can take taxi from the city centre, takes about 30min if the traffic is not bad.
Dai Nam is newer so I think it's probably better. Here is the information.

Dam Sen, to be honest, is somewhat depressing, pretty crappy water-park and some very tired attractions, followed by some rather bad animal attractions: the elephants really make you feel like torching the place and the bear enclsoure has a shop selling stuffed bears.
Dai Nam, I've heard some great things about, but it's about 1.5 hours out of town.

Hi, Hien,

Is Ben Thanh Bus Depot always crowded? Is it next to Ben Thanh Market? Are the buses big or just vans? Is Dai Nam Park the bus interchange of Bus 18? How much is the bus fare to Dai Nam Park? If travel by Mai Linh taxi, how much would it cost? How to recognise that we have reached Dai Nam Park correctly? We don't know how to communicate in Vietnamese. Please advise.

The bus (big bus) is crowded most of the time. Just hop on Bus 18 and you will go to Dai Nam.
It should cost 25-35USD/way for taxi since it's 40km far from the city.
You will definetely see the huge sign when you get there.
here is the vietnamese site for the place, at least you can figure that's the place you want to be. No english available on the site.

Hi, is Suoi Tien Theme Park nearer to Ben Thanh Market than Dai Nam Theme Park? Are there English signs in Suoi Tien Theme Park and Dai Nam Theme Park? How many theme parks are there actually in Saigon?

Travel Tips for Ho Chi Minh City

MAPS

by icebaby0

Tips: Get the map from the airport. However the airport map ain't that fantastic.
Once you are in the city, go to the tourist information building (which is opposite REX HOTEL). Get the map there, it is more detail.

Other maps online:
http://www.indochinatour.com/vietnam/map/map_hochimin_1.html
http://www.hoteltravel.com/vietnam/ho_chi_minh/maps.htm

I found this site very useful. Actually saw it when the counter staff at the tourist information centre was using to find a location. So before you want to go anywhere, you can use this: http://www.diadiem.com/Eindex.aspx (It works like on online streetdirectory!)

Book Flights When You Get There

by neurochic

You will find that you will save tons of money if you wait to book your flights once you are in Vietnam for travel within the country. The tickets were hundreds of dollars cheaper. Just make sure you go to a reputable agency like the Sinh Cafe or Vietnam Airlines itself. For example, I booked a flight from HCM City to Quy Nhon. In the US the price would have been $88 US one way. In HCM City the price was $33 US one way.

Goods transportation on bikes and rickshaws.

by kokoryko

The bike is the king of the streets in Saigon, at least for some time, before they will be pushed away by the growing population of cars which just will make the streets more crowded and jammed!
The little people of Saigon have sometimes only a bike as their belonging, and this bike must be very strong and well maintained; not only are the bikes used to transport themselves, but also for all sorts of goods. In Saigon, you may see many of these bikes, laden with heavy or voluminous things, and the foreign visitor just opens widely his eyes, . . . and tries to make some pictures.
People fit out their bike to transport flowers and plants, and they even speed! (first picture), other construct their rickshaws in order, not only to transport, but also to display their goods (picture 2), like these bananas. Some have rear-view mirrors ( picture 3), but I never have seen that many on a bike. . . . Well, if you need one you have choice!
This lady, on picture 4 has not an electrical bike, despite the big battery you see on the luggage carrier; the battery is for energy for moving the toysshe transports and for playing music! And if you are in the mood for some fresh coconut water, stop a guy like this one (picture 5), and he will serve you with great pleasure. All sorts of goods are transported on bikes in Saigon. . . .

Packing List

by Unknownsu

Your typical summer wear....but in my opinion, avoid whites. The pollution in some districts aren't too friendly.......your whites become red and brown and colours i didn't even know existed......especially if you're on a motorbike.......

Saigon Escape

by Unknownsu

In the Thu Duc District, about 10 kilometers from downtown HCM, the Saigon Waterpark is a refreshing getaway from the heat, dust and traffic that comes with Asian tropical destinations. The park offers 6 slides from a height of 15m and a wave pool that produces waves a meter high. Entrance fee requires 70,000vnd or 4.50usd.
