Dam Sen Water Park (Cong Vien Nuoc Dam Sen)
The Dam Sen Water Park is a popular attraction with locals, and fun and refreshing for travelers, especially those with kids in tow. The area is large, so even when it’s busy it doesn’t feel too crowded. Lifeguards are on duty throughout the park, and high safety standards mean parents should feel confident taking their kids here. Travelers normally visit the park independently, whether it’s for a couple of hours or a whole day.
Things to Know Before You Go
For safety reasons, many of the rides and waterslides are restricted to children taller than 4.5 feet (1.4 meters).
Kids under 2.6 feet (80 centimeters) tall and seniors over 60 years enter the park free of charge.
Ticket prices go down after 4pm.
Lockers are available to store clothes and personal items.
The Waterpark Restaurant serves food at reasonable prices.
How to Get There
The park is about a half-hour drive from central Ho Chi Minh City. While local buses do travel near the park from the central city, it’s easiest to take a taxi.
When to Get There
The park is open seven days a week. It’s especially popular during the summer and Vietnamese school holidays, as well as weekends. Visit outside of these times for a quieter experience.
