Van Thanh Park
A quiet refuge from the city
What we say:
Van Thanh Park is an escape from the honking motorbikes and grinding traffic of Ho Chi Minh City.
Sitting on the banks of the Thi Nghe River, a branch of the Saigon River, and just three kilometres from downtown, the park is a popular spot for tour groups, who commonly drop guests off for breakfast.
You can quietly walk along the green lawns as you look at the stone sculptures, or just sit and enjoy the river.
On clear days the park offers great views, allowing you to see all the way to the shores of Vung Tau.
