Visit the Suoi Tien Cultural Theme Park in Ho Chi Minh City and be schooled on Buddhism

Presented by Busabout

Yes, it’s true. There’s a theme park in Vietnam devoted to Buddhism. The Suoi Tien Cultural Theme Park is located just 15 kilometres outside of Ho Chi Minh City and uses dragons, unicorns, tortoises, and phoenixes as the sacred animals of the park.

There are also workers in golden monkey outfits roaming the park taking pictures with visitors and causing mischief, as monkeys are known to do in Buddhism.

Come here and you’ll be blown away by the giant dragon sculptures, palace of unicorns, and a house of horrors. The theme park is also home to more bizarre sights, such as an imperial palace, sitting buddha statues, man-made mountains, and a gigantic pool park that took two years to construct. But if that wasn’t enough, the Suoi Tien Cultural Theme Park also features a crocodile kingdom with 1,500 live crocodiles. If you’re game, you can even feed these crocs with raw meat attached to fishing poles. Yikes!

If you’re interested in seeing this theme park (let’s face it, who wouldn’t want to?), you’ll only have to pay around $18 for entry.
