Saigon Zoo and Botanical Gardens
A pleasant stroll with the odd elephant thrown in
What we say:
Perhaps a visit to the Saigon Zoo and Botanical Gardens isn't wise if your sole intention is viewing animals.
Although there is a good range of creatures, they've seen better days and the whole facility is in need of a good clean up.
As a destination for a lazy afternoon walk in the shade under leafy tropical plants and trees, however, it's one of the best in the city.
The gardens mix into one with the zoo as the same attraction. Consider it a pleasant stroll with the odd elephant and giraffe thrown in.
