Dong Dieu Entertainment Area
Come for the kite flying
What we say:
An open area in the outskirts of the city, the Dong Dieu Entertainment Area has become a popular spot for Ho Chi Minh locals.
Although it is a popular picnic site, it's even more popular as a spot to fly kites, especially on the weekend. Here you can see many different shapes of kites, including dragons and lobsters, flying free of the higher buildings of downtown.
If you do come on the weekend you may play witness to members of the Saigon Kite Club showing off their skills.
