The Buddhist-themed Suoi Tien Amusement Park is one of the wackiest attractions in town of the city. Especially if you plan to visit the vast water park section, do not hesitate to allocate a full day here. If you are not well versed in Buddhist stories, the amusement park can be quite baffling as there is limited signage in English. However, it can be very entertaining to take a stroll through the strange displays, which consist of The Royal Herbal Wine Palace and a wish tree. Besides the Snow Castle, which is the perfect place to escape from the heat of Ho Chi Minh City by plunging into a sub-zero world of snow and ice, you can also find an aquarium, a dolphin show and a 4D cinema.
