Snow Town Saigon

It’s that time of the year again when you have scorching days and rainy evenings.  Our electricity climbed almost 50% more this summer.

With the kids on summer break, it has been hard keeping them entertained and so we decided to check one of Saigon’s newest attractions, Snow Town.

The kids along with their friend were excited to see it and find out if it was anything like Polar Expo. But mentally, I wasn’t raring to go. I hate the cold.

Snow Town is at Building The CBD Premium Home, Vietnamese 125 Dong Van Cong, Thanh My Loi Ward in District 2. It’s a residential building being built with no other business in sight except for Snow Town.

Snow Town is divided into two areas – the snow area and the food hall with kiddie play area.

I honestly thought that the snow area was bigger based on the photos. But now looking back at the photos I took, it was just the right size if you’re the lone person watching over 3 kids. Hahaha! My 8 year and his friend had a grand time. My 5 year old was a bit disappointed that I didn’t want to ride the sled with him. 😛 Luckily, one of the attendants was happy to ride along with my kid.

Snow Town is way different from Polar Expo where I was freezing my face off. The temperature is just perfect. You get a pair of boots and jacket along with the fee but, even without the jacket, I was alright. Compared to Polar Expo’s 0 degree temp, Snow Town is at 10-15 degree Celsius.

We went on a weekday so the price is cheaper at 130,000 VND for kids below 1.3 meters and 180,000 VND for everybody else. During the weekend, it’s over 200,000 VND each.

Friends have been asking if the jackets are clean. Haha. YES! They are! The jackets we were given were all freshly washed. But if you want to bring your own, it’s okay as well.

Snow Town? Check!

Off to our next adventure!

    Love that place its so close to Saigon Star school. Kids can go straight there after school and there’s barely any traffic in that area.
