Vietnam how some of the best theme parks in South East Asia, with exciting rides and modern roller coasters that meet European standards with safety. If your an expat living in Vietnam or a tourist who wants to do something fun, a theme park can get you stimulated with some tremendous white knuckle rides that rival some of the best parks in the world in Vietnam!
Over the last few years, Vietnam has had massive growth in the economy, and this had a surch in theme parks being built all over the country. The theme parks have two sets of customers, locals, and tourists, with a new, vibrant hospitality industry.
Vietnam is getting better and will leave you surprised with the potential compared to 20 years ago when it was bleak. I say enjoy this country for everything it offers because it’s becoming the best country in South East Asia rapidly. The theme parks are a testament to the countries growing economy through hardwork and discipline.
Suoi Tien – Ho Chi Minh City
Suoi Tien means (Fairy Stream), and it is one of the major theme parks in Vietnam. The whole park is like a Buddhist dynasty with monuments and statues, giving it a monastery feeling. The park house a good variety of activities from roller coasters, water parks, Ferris wheels, and a Unicorn palace to keep you entertained for hours. You also have the House of horrors for all the sinners of the world so if you want a glance into hell, take this ride, LOL
The park gets busy on national Holidays and weekends with punters traveling from far and wide. Be warned you could be waiting a while to enter the park, so make sure you got plenty of water. If you go in the week, it has been known for rides to be closed, and the park is virtually empty and bleak.

Dam Sen – Ho Chi Minh City
Dam Sen was one of the first theme parks in Ho Chi Minh city for a while and became a ritual within the city. You have two areas with the water park being the most popular. I guess it is great for cooling off and chilling, and Dam Sen can offer relief just a few miles from the center.
If your wanting to have food, you’ve come to the right place with many eateries around the pool. The park has maybe 12 great rides with unlimited access if you show your wrist band. You can expect to see rides like love storm, Aqua dance, black Thunder, and boomerang, all amazing and unique to Dam Sen.
The second part of the amusement park is the cultural park with beautiful gardens, lakes, and zoo’s, eateries and arcades. You can also find some boats to go round Lake with a Ferris wheel and a tiny roller coaster. The area is fine but don’t expect too much as its more of a chilled place.

Dragon Park, Ha Long
This theme park is one of the biggest in South East Asia, let alone Vietnam. One of the perks of this theme park is located in the north, giving it a cooler climate and less of a grind like in southern Vietnam.
The park has a few notable roller coasters that stand out. One is the Phi Long express and nicknamed the “terrible” in Vietnam. The other is called the rhino sling, which will get your palm sweaty and heart and beating fast with speeds of 40 miles an hour that throw you around the corners, leaving you pumped.
One of the positives of this theme park is safety, which meets all standards like so many in Vietnam.

Sun World Halong Park
Vietnam on some big theme parks, and Sun World is one of them with its amazing views. When you arrive, you hop on the cable car, which gives you spectacular scenery to admire before entering the park. The park houses, a giant Ferris wheel spanning over 250 meters, is huge.
Design gardens are also pretty awesome and have unique sculptures and vegetation that is quite calming and relaxing. One of the key aspects to this park is how relaxing it is, which is different from other theme parks in the West.

Ba Na Hills – Da Nang
Ba Na Hills Have quite a pleasant setting and something I like it’s French-themed which gives you the impression your in another country. In the morning, sometimes you will see clouds and fog pass by, making the theme park even more unique and different.
I always like getting onto cable cars and checking out their views, and there’s a great one here that takes you to the theme park (20mins). The cart drops are dotted all over the mountains, which when you arrive have beautiful gardens and the Sky bridge
The theme park’s attraction is the amazing views and the unique French village with loads of things to do. You have a wax museum, an arcade, roller coaster, and even some wine tasting which is excellent. If I was going to choose one theme park Ba Na Hills.
