Got young, restless children who need to work off some of that boundless energy? Well truck along to the seriously cheap indoor children’s play zone – Play Zone for Kids; corner of Cua Dai and Tran Nhan Tong. From trampolines, climbing apparatus and play houses to ball pools and play cars – it’s as good as you’ll find in any country.
Open from mid-afternoon to 9 or 9.30pm, it’s a hard to miss Play Zone for Kids – bright fluorescent green with a couple of giant crickets painted on the front. Don’t forget: thrown into your cheap as chips entry ticket is a free train ride and, for a little extra, your artistic progeny can create a Michelangelo masterpiece on one of the many plaster models on offer.
Play Zone for Kids is clean and modern with plenty of excitement but be mindful, as it’s still unknown to most tourists, the Vietnamese staff has no English. Nothing a bit of body language can’t handle – and it’s so cheap!
40,000 VND (1.70 USD) entry ticket (includes a train ride); approx. 10,000 VND (0.45 USD) sand art and 20,000 VND (0.85 USD) painting plaster models.
No food on sale but the Banh Mi stand directly left on Cua Dai can provide you with a delicious banh mi – or bring what you need. Drinks are served in the Center and purchased by paying the cashier to get a drinks voucher. They also have birthday party packages.
