"Thao Cam Vien (Zoo and Botanical Garden)" Parks Tip by Blatherwick

Parks, Ho Chi Minh City: 21 reviews and 45 photos

  Zoo - Monkeys
by Blatherwick

These gardens, founded in 1864, are Vietnam's largest. Just inside the gates is a monument to Louis Pasteur. Also just inside the main gate is the Temple of King Hung Vuong , who was one of the first rulers of the Vietnamese nation before the Chinese invaded.

The zoo is small and pretty run down. I got lucky to see the monkeys swinging around in the open.

Address: Intersection of Nguyen Binh Khiem and Le Duan
