Suoi Tien – Vietnam’s Weirdest Amusement Park

Located in Ho Chi Minh City, Suoi Tien is Vietnam’s wacky Buddhist wonderland. It’s Vietnam’s weirdest amusement park and maybe the strangest in all of Asia. Suoi Tien is one of the coolest, most unusual, and most unique things to do in Ho Chi Minh City.

There are lots of rides and roller coasters, but the massive spectacles and displays make Suoi Tien special. The entrance fee to this sprawling theme park is less than $5 USD. And Suoi Tien is located only 40 minutes from the main tourist area of Ho Chi Minh City.

Superficial Fun and Deep Cultural Heritage

This Massive Spectacle is just an ordinary decoration at Suoi Tien in Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam Saigon

This Massive Spectacle is just an ordinary decoration at Suoi Tien.

Suoi Tien mixes the superficial fun of an amusement park with the deep cultural heritage of Vietnam. In the spectacular and surreal mash-up of Suoi Tien, you’ll find:

  • Frivolous Roller Coasters, Carnival Games, and Junk Food
  • Serious Monuments to Ancient Vietnamese History
  • Tacky Harry Potter and Disney Knock-off Attractions
  • Inspiring and Original Buddhist Works of Art
  • Gaudy Haunted Houses and Waterparks
  • Real Functioning Buddhist Temples
  • Mini Ziplines
  • Giant Mythological Creatures

Suoi Tien may not make sense to us westerners, but it wasn’t designed for us. Suoi Tien was made by the Vietnamese for the Vietnamese. That’s the best thing about this theme park. It’s not the Vietnamese putting on a show for foreigners, appealing foreign tastes.

Suoi Tien is the Vietnamese putting on a show for other Vietnamese, appealing to Vietnamese tastes. The park is hugely popular. Millions of Vietnamese visit Suoi Tien every year. And that’s why it’s a cool lesson on contemporary Vietnamese culture, as well as a good time.

Best of all, you can enjoy some fantastic spectacles alongside locals. We try to give you a taste of its uniqueness in our photos. We leave out most the typical amusement park stuff.  In our photos, we focus on the cultural and spiritual

In our photos, we focus on the cultural and spiritual spectacles but remember that all the temples and monuments are in the setting of a raucous amusement park.

The Avalokiteshvara is sitting on the mythological Golden Turtle God of Vietnamese folklore.

Figures of Ancient Vietnamese History and Legends

Saint Giong Riding His Iron Horse to Heaven at Suoi Tien in Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam Saigon

Saint Giong Riding His Iron Horse to Heaven

Giong was a historical figure from 1700BC! In the legend, Giong was a deaf and lame child of 3 when he learned that there were foreign invaders. He magically transformed into a grown man and fought off the invaders. Afterward, Giong refused fortune and fame. Instead, he went up to Soc Son Moutain and rode off to heaven on his iron horse.

This is one of Vietnam’s oldest and most cherished legends. The village of Phu Dong was the ancient birthplace of Saint Giong. It still exists today and holds an annual festival for Saint Giong around May.

Oh yeah, and there’s a big waterpark with an ancient emperor’s head carved on huge mountain.

Suoi Tien is fun and amazing. In additional to all the other marvelous things to see, you can watch kids pray and light incense at altar, then run off to eat cotton candy and ride a mechanical dragon.

You can see how much the Vietnamese revere their 4000-year-old spiritual heritage. AND you can see that they don’t mind if that heritage is used for financial gain and superficial fun.

Suoi Tien is not an “authentic” experience like the ancient temples of Hue, but it is a window on the contemporary culture of this fascinating country.

    That’s really a unique amusement park! I like how they incorporated their culture with the interest of modern society. Your photos are great, too. The statues were well-captured. Very interesting post, indeed.

    Hi Gracie. Thanks so much. Good to hear it was a fun post.

    Posted at 23:55h, 02 April

    The Avalokiteshvara Buddha is absolutely huge! It’s amazing how much time and effort these guys put into making Buddha monuments. I can’t believe how cheap the amusement park is either, $5. Those prices just don’t exist in Europe or the US!

  • The Travel Ninjas
    Posted at 23:56h, 02 April

    Hi Only by Land. That’s how we felt too. The massive art was as amazing as the low price.

    Posted at 03:00h, 03 April

    That’s so much fun for so cheap prices. That’s particularity why I love SE Asia! I love temples so much mostly because there are colorful corners but this is interesting since it’s an amusement park with the influence of Buddhism.

    Hello Zinara. It is an amazing value for a unique cultural attraction / fun amusement park.

    Posted at 07:59h, 03 April

    Oh wow, this is SO STRANGE!! You’re right that it’s probably made for locals more than Westerners, it reminds me of the Haw Par Villa park in Singapore that’s based on the 7 levels of Hell, and it used to be open as a park for families to enjoy. This whacky place knocks that out of the park though! I’ve been to HCM before but never found out about this place and I’m definitely intrigued.

    Posted at 12:07h, 03 April

    That’s so cool! I would never have thought to read about an amusement park which manages to combine sacred and profane, how queer! I’d love to pay a visit, but do you think it a good or bad thing? I mean, would you say tradition is somewhat ruined by this commercial approach?

  • The Travel Ninjas
    Posted at 12:11h, 03 April

    Hello Iris. Well, Vietnamese people think of it as a good thing. Suoi Tien is wildly popular. It not like a Buddhist park in America. It’s an authentic part of the culture here.

    This is the most intriguing amusement park that I have come across. An entire park based on the Buddha theme is really something! The Buddha structures are really impressive and magnificent. Definitely, a must visit place, not for the amusement rides but for the Buddha theme.

    Wow. This really is a strange theme park! In fact, it doesn’t even look like a theme park to me! It looks more like a huge, quirky museum. But you’re right, it wasn’t made for us. It was made for the Vietnamese, and that is a good thing. The structures are strange and eerie, but I would still want to check it out. I still think this is a unique experience. I’ll keep this in mind when I visit Ho Chi Minh!

    The Vietnamese have found a way to integrate culture into everyday entertainment and that to me, is a great way to keep heritage alive, not just for tourists but also locals. I wonder if they also provide information about all these icons in the amusement park..

  • neha
    Posted at 09:47h, 09 April

    This amusement park is definitely unique. I guess it is as much about soaking into the culture of the place as it is about enjoying the rides. Children will have a wonderful time here playing and learning at the same time.
