The perfect way to beat Vietnam’s heat, Dam Sen Water Park in Ho Chi Minh features an array of water slides and a wave pool. Pick up your tube and head to the Wandering River, then ride the thrilling Black Thunder with laser lights and blackout tubes.
Plunge down the 19-meter-high Kamikaze slide, then test your bravery on the Flying Fox-themed ride where you’ll get to hang from a 10-meter-long cable over a swimming pool. Traveling with little ones? They’ll love the children’s play area with colorful slides and animal-themed water jets.
Trained lifeguards are on patrol at all times and the park offers complimentary lockers, newspapers, and magazines in the sunbathing area. The park is part of the larger Dam Sen Cultural Park complex that boasts a botanical garden, roller coasters, and a mini zoo.
Des Sen Water Park is a 30-minute drive west of Ho Chi Minh and about 15 minutes south-west from Tan Son That International Airport. The best way to get to the park is by taxi, motorbike or bus.
