  • Dai Nam is a very large attraction which includes the zoo, temple, man made sea and rides. We went to the temple and the zoo and you either need to drive your own car around the park or use their elec...  more »
  • The facility is a bit underdeveloped. But South Korea got to see various animals than good. A little sore-legged the scale is still walking yen. A simple dining room or in the Interior of the stalls there are also able to fix a meal. If you're with kids more than anything else.

  • This is a very large park. Attractions, karting, water park, Zoo and the historic entrance group. Very nicely decorated entrance group. This is a large area with a reconstruction of historical buildings. We had time to visit only at the Zoo. Departed from Ho Chi Minh City in 11:30. In Saturday. Rode 1:30 because huge traffic jams in the city. on uber. $35 at one end. We paid our driver the cheapest ticket plus for 50000 150000 entry machine and he drove us to this vast territory and took back. It is not possible to navigate on foot, very large distance from the entrance to the Zoo, for example. Many free electric locomotives, but they all stand and did not understand what to do to you was taken. English said the only person in the Cafe at the Zoo. In Saturday was empty. We also still quite a few people. Most of the time we were alone. On an ostrich pokatali only a daughter. 6 years. cost 30000. Adult white not rolled. Heavy). Zoo. Fed giraffes. It was great. Take a banana, it will be cheaper. Or chopped pumpkin. Want to feed a long time). The child could not disengage. You can eat at the entrance to the Zoo. Tickets are divided into groups. Entry to all zone 400000. Zoo and carting 300000. Karting 150000. Child 6 years allowed free of charge. Taxi back problem. Leave the wait.

  • It's a nice place, needs a little upkeep. Service is good and amenities are plenty. Would return. Hopefully it is fixed up a little better when I return. Recommend the water park and zoo which I just visited. Horse drawn carriage around the zoo was a surprising plus. Off to the horse races now, hopefully I win it big!
  • Great place to visit, especially weekdays. No crowds. Come early to enjoy swimming. They open at 0730 or so. You may be one of few people in the huge man-made beach swimming. Pack a picnic. Then enjoy the races at around lunch time. But no in-out privilege. The zoo is okay. Feel bad for the animals. Not enough space for them. Must visit the temple before you leave. The temple and surroundings are beautiful.
  • The whole experience was wonderful! I went with my family last year on July 2015. A great place to spend with your family. Would recommend to anyone interested!
  • Dai Nam Tourist Them Park. The park has many features devoted to a zoo,a Buddhist temple,a swimming pool,a amusement park,a camp ground.They claim it as Vietnams top man made tourism spot.A mix of modern and traditional architectural.There is a zoo and we went through it. I did post or take any pics as I'm apposed to the idea of a zoo.Yes it has some unique features that I haven't seen else where in Canada.
  • Is great, But, i don't like. Because, I hate snake
