Hoang Van Thu Park (Cong Vien Hoang Van Thu)

A quite beautiful corner of Ho Chi Minh City it is worth visiting is Hoang Van Thu Park (Cong vien Hoàng Văn Thụ written in Vietnamese). Is located in the District 10 (see map of Saigon) Street Phan Dinh Giot, And being away from the center (district 1) is not very touristy (I have rarely seen a foreigner, much less a tourist in that area), but one thing is that not every tourist should and quite another, is not a recommended approach to this park and enjoy the beauty and charm of the place.

It is located on the road to Saigon Airport Tan Son Nhat, And due to the growth of the city and the incessant traffic (especially motorcycle), The government decided to build a new road to ease the traffic and road that crosses the park, thus being the part Hoang Van Thu divided into two.

Points of interest in the park

Eiffel Tower

This Park is full of surprises, as for example a scale of the Eiffel Tower replica. This small eiffel tower has a height of almost 3 metres.
For sure I do not know what is the reason that the park has a Hoang Van Thu inside Eiffel Tower, perhaps the French influence or simply by the charm and simplicity of the symbol of Paris.

Park Restaurant

What if during our stay in Vietnam and discovered the park while we get hungry, we can taste the odd dish Vietnamese cuisine in the park restaurant. Surprisingly, not a street restaurant the truth.
