Tao Dan Park - the ideal space for visitors to stop in the middle of the hustle and bustle of busy Saigon.

Where is Tao Dan Park?

Located on Nguyen Thi Minh Khai Street, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, the park is one of the largest and most beautiful parks in Saigon. Tao Dan is about 10 hectares wide with more than 1,000 trees so it is like a green lung in the heart of the  crowded city, attracting a lot of urban residents to do exercise, walk  in the early morning or in the afternoon around  05:00-06:00 pm

Previously, Tao Dan Park was located on the grounds of the French Governor General's Palace, named Tao Dan Garden. Later, Tao Dan Garden was renamed to Tao Dan Cultural Park and has the playground for children.

Area for kids 

After renovation, the current amusement park has an area of about 300m2, located on the side of Truong Dinh street with 8 games for children to play

What is inside Tao Dan Park?

Inside the park there is a temple to honor the Hung Kings and a small Cham tower.
