Dam Sen park in Ho Chi Minh City
Dam Sen park is impressive in size and if you want to get into it, here is the address: 3 Hòa Bình, phường 3, Thành phố Hồ Chí Minh, Hồ Chí Minh (on the map the entrance is marked with a yellow marker).
If you, like us, want to go to Dam Sen Waterpark, here is the address: 03 Hoa Binh Street, Ho Chi Minh City, Hồ Chí Minh (the entrance is marked with a blue marker on the map).
It is important not to confuse which entrance, we mixed up and walked from the point marked with a yellow marker to the blue point, right on the construction site about 15 minutes: And here is the entrance to the water park Dam Sen!
All praise Dam Sen park, but we were only in the water park Dam Sen, so the story will be only about water fun.
2. Opening hours of the water park – from 7 am to 17 30.
4. You will be asked to write your name on a piece of paper, the paper will be taken away. When you want to return your things, give back the key and your name, which will be checked against the entry on the piece of paper. All this is done for safety.
The water park is pretty big, bright, colorful, comfortable, safe, lots of slides.
An epic mini video with the epic line “I’m alive, I’m alive!”
Some of the slides are pretty scary, but all within normal limits:
There were very few people willing to ride, probably because it was a weekday. On the network often scare that the water park Dam Sen not pushed, a sea of Vietnamese kids. In our case, we never once stood in line, everything was surprisingly free. And for some reason none of the tourists in Ho Chi Minh City on December 31 as fun as we were.
Bungee! A brutal bungee cord.
“Lazy river” – you sit on the circle and slowly carry the water. Very cool.
There are both open and closed slides, we took a ride on all of them. Photo from the network:
Who fell out of the centrifuge?

If you climb on the highest slide, you can see the view of Ho Chi Minh City:
Or the rainforest:
Before you roll down the slide, you must carefully study the instructions hanging nearby: hands behind your head, legs outstretched and crossed over each other. If you do not heed the instructions, you can badly hit. There is a water park in Vietnamese Nha Trang, too, called “Vinpearl”, where every slide is a strict Vietnamese and monitors whether you throw your hands and feet right. Here, however, few people are watching the tourists, so you have to be very careful yourself.
Well, don’t mention it!
In Ho Chi Minh City, Dam Sen Water Park has a large children’s pool with small slides. Photo from the net:
There’s also an almost real waterfall:
One of our favorite activities at Dam Sen Waterpark was the artificial wave pool. You lie down or sit on a lap and you’re bobbed hard in different directions.

Let’s go take pictures in the children’s pool. There are beautiful elephants there:
And then I was attacked:
And tried to cleverly leave the area:
Doesn’t it remind you of anyone?
Dam Sen Water Park in Ho Chi Minh City is really a great place for everyone, from small to large. We spent an unforgettable 2.5 hours there and will go back again if possible.
1. If you plan to have lunch at the water park, put your money in the plastic case with the key. Nothing will get lost in the case, only a little wet, but Vietnamese money is almost plastic and nothing will happen to it.
2. Do not come to the avapark early in the morning, but at 1 or 2 pm, then there will most likely be less people resting there.
3. Get a waterproof bag for your camera, it will come in handy for bathing in the sea.
4. In addition to Dam Sen there are several other amusement parks in Ho Chi Minh City, one of them is Suoi Tien, it is very cool.
5. If you really like water parks, then visit also “Vinpearl” in Nha Trang. “Vinpearl” is considered the best amusement park and water park in Vietnam. We told you about it in two posts: 1 post, 2 post.
6. After having fun, take a walk around the city. Ho Chi Minh City is quite a pleasant city to walk around, mostly in the center. Just don’t get into rush hour, bikers won’t even let you cross the road.
