Where to have fun with your kids in Saigon

Where to have fun with your kids in Saigon

Traveling with your kids is not a bad idea. In fact, that’s the best idea for your kids to learn new things. You and your kids will also have a chance to know more about each other. We also understand that finding places that your family can enjoy is not easy. Therefore, we will give you some destinations that you can have fun with your kids in Saigon in this blog.

1. Water Puppet Show

Water Puppet Show (Múa Rối Nước) is one of the traditional performances of Vietnamese people. Water Puppet Show was created around 10 centuries ago and developed during the Ly dynasty (1010 A.D - 1215 A.D). It is always performed in traditional festivals to celebrate a successful harvest season. Water Puppet Show is also considered as a special intangible culture of the Vietnamese people. When you take your kids to watch the  Water Puppet Show, the kids will learn about Vietnamese culture naturally rather than reading some thick books. Kids will have a fun time to look at these puppets moving around mysterious on the top of the water.

2. Đầm Sen Water Park

Đầm Sen Water Park is a part of Đầm Sen Cultural Park system. This is a place where you and your kids can have fun with water slides, a wave pool, and several other thrilling rides for all ages. In my opinion, the greatest part is the small zip line. Of course, it’s not for kids though. But your kids still have many choices ahead. It is located in District 11 so you can go there by Taxi (Vinasun or Mai Linh) or Grab Car. If you are worried about safety problems, the lifeguards are everywhere in the Water Park. There is also a Kid Pool which is decorated with colorful slides and massive statues of elephants and hippos spouting water jets.

3. Suối Tiên Theme Park

If you are disappointed because you can’t find Disneyland for your kids in Saigon, Suối Tiên Theme Park could be a good replacement. Kids will enjoy and have the fun time as they do in Disneyland. The theme of this park is Buddhism and Vietnamese culture. Getting there, you can see many beautiful statues of Buddhist and legendary animals in Vietnamese culture like Dragon, Phoenix, Tortoise, etc. The whole area is very big so make sure that you go there early in order to experience all types of outdoor activities. There are some activities that you and your kids can enjoy like the roller coaster, crocodile feeding, etc. You can also go to a water park nearby to enjoy. The ticket for the water park is not included so you have to pay an extra fee. We suggest that you should go on the weekend because some shops or activities are closed during weekdays. You can bring food from outside to the park or water park as well.
