If you are currently living in Ho Chi Minh City you will no doubt know that it can get rather hot. With average highs of over 30 degrees Celsius throughout the year and an average humidity of 75%, you may find that a short venture out into the city soon has you running back home to cool down.
So, if do not have time to take the family to the beaches of Nha Trang or Mui Ne, what better way to spend a day cooling down than a visit to Dam Sen Water Park!
About The Park
Dam Sen Water Park is a hidden oasis located in District 11 just outside the city centre. It forms part of the larger Dem Sen Park complex which is a haven for Ho Chi Minh’s urban population who flock there on weekends to escape the city heat and humidity.
The waterpark offers a range of activities for the whole family and has a wide range of rides and slides for the thrill seekers out there. If you prefer a relaxing day there is a wave pool and wondering river where you can pick up a tube and simply lay on your back, look up at the sky and enjoy the atmosphere.
For children there is a great kid’s pool area that has various themed fountains, small slides and tipping buckets to keep them entertained.
For the adventure seekers there is the Black Thunder which you can jump into and experience the laser lights and blackout tubing, multi-slides where you can race against your friends and family and the Boomerang where you can experience the sensation of free-falling.
There are also a number of dining options in the park with many small food stands offering cheap local delicacies along with more dining facilities surrounding the park.
Some of the rides will have height restrictions usually between 1 and 1.5 meters.
Please note that the park is closed on Tuesdays but open every other day. Lockers for your belongings are available in the park.
Dem Sen Water Park is located about a 30 minute drive to the west of Ho Chi Minh’s district 1. It is about 15 minutes south west of the airport.
If you are travelling by bike then you can expect to get there about 10 minutes quicker.
From District 1 take CMT8 to 3 Thang 2. Once you pass by the race track in District 11, turn right onto Lanh Binh Thang and then into Hoa Binh where the park is located.
Admission price is 110,000 VND for anyone over 1.4 meters and 70,000 VND for those under.
It really is a great day out for friends and families and a nice way to enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre.
