“WARNING: ZOO NO LONGER OPEN AT NIGHT!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

We went to Dai Nam on a weekday afternoon with the intention of going on some rides and then going to the night zoo. But by 4pm all the rides were closed. We were informed the zoo was about to close and that the night sessions hadn't run for months. Yet it's still advertised on their website! We had booked to stay at the Dai Nam Hotel, with the intention of taking the children to the water park the following day, but with the park deserted by 4pm and absolutely nothing to do, we went home! This park seems destined to be a WHITE ELEPHANT!

“Give it a miss”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

This review encompasses theme park and water park only. It was very expensive just to get through the gate - 100,000 each. To the go to the water park had to pay additional money and then in the amusement park had to pay separately for each ride which were way more expensive than anything we had experienced to date (100,000/ride). Very poorly maintained, indifferent staff, little English signage. Looks like it had set itself up to be an international standard adventure park - falling far short of that. Hardly anybody there - was Saturday. Very poor value. If you have to choose between a water adventure around Ho Chi Minh definitely go to Dam Sen Waterpark. There were probably other attractions there that we missed but were put off by such little information.

“WELL!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

I first went to this zoo in the fall of summer 1996 where i was very pleased with the services the so called 'keepers' provided. When i returned in September 2012 i was appauled by the state of the zoo. The 'keepers' we all smoking drugs while on duty, forgeting to close cages and letting animals run loose. The monkeys were all addicted to pot as one f the 'KEEPERS' had provided them with drugs. An i won't say much abput the lion inclosure but lets just say 'they should block up the back door'!

“An amazing zoo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

I visited Dai Nam Zoo with my friends in 2010, when it was not finished yet. But all of us love it. It has hundreds of wild animals that no other zoo in HCMC. has.
