Ho Thuy Tien water park

This water park is located a few miles outside Huong Thuy town. It is one of the creepiest places to visit in Vietnam for several reasons. First of all, it is hidden somewhere in the jungle near the Thuy Tien Lake. Secondly, there are rumours of crocodiles still living there even though the last three were removed from the facility. This water park was open to the public as an unfinished project back in 2014 and later became completely abandoned. A tour of this place is not for the faint-hearted, but if you want to experience a post-apocalyptic dream world, then this is the place to be. The area is murky, has overgrown vines and is a little bit rusty. The entrance of the park has a three-storey dragon perched around a domed structure which is the entrance to the abandoned amusement park. There's no recent development in the park, but it is a good place to visit and explore.

The Golden Bridge

It is located west of Da Nang and part of the Sun World Ba Na Hills amusement park. The Golden Bridge photos went viral as soon as they were uploaded online. It is as if two gigantic hands were supporting the bridge preventing it from collapsing. This amazing architectural work of art is stunning, and there's a beautiful background scenery. The bridge is unique in its own way and symbolizes something divine or godlike. The 500 ft long bridge is accessible by a 20 minutes cable car ride. It is built top of Ba Na Hills and was constructed to connect the cable car station with the adjacent gardens. The bridge provides a scenic look and was part of a $2 billion investment to attract tourists to the area. It provides a scenic overlook and one of the most popular tourist attraction sites In Vietnam.

Suoi Tien Cultural Theme Park

Suoi Tien is the first-ever Buddhist waterslide park in the world. It is a water-filled fantasy world a few miles south of Ho Chi Minh City. The cultural park theme embraces the animistic form of Buddhism. Sacred animals portrayed in the theme park include a Dragon, Tortoise, Unicorn and Phoenix. The main aim of the park is to present the Vietnamese culture, history and folklore to the outside world. Massive concrete designed dragons surround the swimming pools. The entrance has a giant rotating frog sculpture, and the pillars take the shape of giant elephant tusks. There's a twelve-storey face of a Buddhist sage which is the most noticeable feature of the theme park. Also, there are over 1,500 live crocodiles in the park and visitors are allowed to feed them.

Am Phu Cave

The cave was discovered in the 19th century by King Minh Mang who in turn named it Am Phu which means hell in English. It was officially opened to the public and tourists in 2006. There are frightening figures that were created by local artists in the pitch dark tunnels and stalactites. Also, there is a bridge that every visitor crosses to enter the Am Phu Cave. The bridge is a symbolic representation of crossing over from earthly realm into the hellish realm of fanged devils and violent demons. There is also a shrine where visitors can confess their sins and repent.

Hang Son Doong

Hang Son Doong is officially recognized as the largest natural cave in the world. A surprising fact about this cave is that it was only discovered in 1991 by a local man. It is located near the Vietnam-Laos border in Quang Binh Province. The cave is over five kilometres long and about 200 meters tall. It has its own jungle that formed underneath a collapsed carven roof. Public visits were initiated in 2013 and are currently offered by Oxalis Adventure Tours.
