A Visit to the Elf Village

A few months back, a friend from Three Brooms Town or Ba Cay Choi invited us to visit.  I wasn’t quite sure what it was until we visited last weekend one of their 3 towns called, Elf Village or Lang Gia Tinh at the Vista Walk in An Phu.

The entrance had gears and pinions designed on its walls so it was pretty odd to enter a tavern-like venue.

The music that reached our ears when we went inside was very welcoming. My son instantly recognized the music was Irish and was enthralled by the “village” sights.

The entrance and most of the walkways were narrow with low ceilings, and uneven steps.

Kids can walk to the main area or yeah, why not slide? 😛

From their website, kids and kids at heart can enjoy a variety of arts and craft activities. Reasonably priced too!

My son and his friends built a catapult while we, the adults, helicoptered parent. 😛

What I wanted to do was make mosaics in this room —

The other moms sat with the manager to discuss party planning. Looks like we’ll be coming back here to attend a party or two.

It is a pretty terrific place where kids can be busy while the parents chat and have a snack. And there’s always something interesting to see. Here are some shots from our visit:
