VINPEARL LAND THE AMUSEMENT PARK ALL TO OURSELVES

PREVIOUS / NEXT

VIETNAM by KRISS on 09 february 2017

There is at least one activity you cannot miss if you’re on the island of Phu Quoc with kids and it’s the Vinpearl Land amusement park.
From what I understand Vin is a big big brand in Vietnam and they have other amusement parks in other parts of the country too.

Anyways, in Phu Quoc they did things big as an enormous park of thousands of hotel rooms are being built around the park.
Wether locals are keen on the project or not is something else and I will just report on the amazing fun I had in the park.

A free bus picks you up all along the road from south to north of the island and unless you go during a week end when you might get a school trip for instance, you’re likely to have the bus all to yourself ! We did.
It’s a very bumpy ride so sit in the middle of the bus if you value your back.

When you arrive at the Vinpearl Park, don’t expect to queue because you won’t.
We actually were alone in front the gates when we arrived and someone kindly asked to check our bags.
Oh don’t worry you’re not in Disneyland Paris where they fear for yet another terrorist attack, they just check you’re not bringing in food and water so that you buy those in the park.
I can’t blame them, prices are already cheap enough considering the service you get.
The ticket costs about $20 (USD) and drinks in the park $1 or less.
Meals at the park restaurants are excellent and only slightly more expensive than anywhere else on the island.

Ok so imagine yourself in a nearly empty amusement park where you can do whatever you want.
Well that’s about how we felt in Vinpearl land if it wasn’t for Rose’s short size (1m30) which got her out of most really fun activities (1m40 minimum).
But it honestly didn’t matter, we had so much fun, both in the amusement park and the aquatic park.

Everything is brand new, working, feels safe and you never queue !!! At times it can be a little strange like it’s the end of the world and you’re one of the few survivors enjoying a day in an empty place that’s supposed to be full of life.
But then you bump into the few other lucky ones who get the park to themselves and you feel like the lucky guy who’s having a day in his own private amusement park !

Enjoy it while it lasts, I bet the investors who built this park are looking forward to the day you’ll be queuing an hour for a ride and it will be the only way for such a place to survive anyways.
