Le Thi Rieng Park in Ho Chi Minh City

80% of the park is covered by lush greenery, which results in a refreshing atmosphere. Le Thi Rieng Park covers a spacious area of 8 ha. While many other parks usually have even and flat terrain, Le Thi Rieng Park is different when it has many small rolling hills.

It is interesting to know that the area of Le Thi Rieng Park today used to be a graveyard during the war. Before 1975, it was known as Do Thanh Cemetery for unnamed soldiers. That is also the reason why there are quite a few scary rumors around this city park.

Together we can discover Saigon on a motorbike, a fantastic city!
