This Lunar New Year, Suoi Tien (the Fairy Stream) Theme Park receives a huge number of visitors from Ho Chi Minh City and other provinces. Visitors come here to discover a fairy land, where they can be relaxed and entertained.

According to Feng Shui, Suoi Tien is the land of four noble animals (Dragon, Unicorn, Tortoise, Phoenix), which would bring safety, happiness and good luck to people.

It is the reason why people around the city and neighboring provinces flock to the park every Lunar New Year.

Crocodile Kingdom

It is a very attractive area for visitors, especially for children in this Lunar New Year. There are over seven thousand crocodiles at the age of one to seven. A crocodile can weigh from fifteen to seventy kilos, depending on its age. These are special fresh-water crocodile species of Viet Nam, which are listed as the endangered ones in the Red Book, but have been successfully bred in Suoi Tien Theme Park.

Children like to watch crocodiles sleeping or lying under the sunlight from a safe distance, when the crocodiles seem not to be as fierce as they are. Many visitors are so excited with a heart-pounding game – crocodile fishing!
