Tao Dan Park
If you want a quick escape from the concrete jungle without actually leaving Ho Chi Minh City, visit Tao Dan Park, a vast urban green space in the city.
Tao Dan Park is ideal for anyone looking for rest and recreation — here, large Sao den and So Khi trees cover the pathways, benches are ready for those who want to sit down and relax, and locals congregate to exercise or do tai chi together. The greenery here is a refreshing sight — there are a ton of spots where you can take photos. Staying at Tao Dan Park can give you a glimpse of the interesting people of Ho Chi Minh City — apart from the throng of locals exercising, walking around, and having picnics, one noticeable group would be the bird lovers who gather together at a famous bird cafe.
