Fortunate enough to have played top courses in China,Thailand, Indonesia & Malaysia and to play this as our 2nd course on our Vietnam tour was very special. The clubhouse & facilities are superb and the course is way stronger than its yardage would indicate.
A great variety on the Hills course with elevated tees, doglegs and palms strategically located that claimed 2 balls from our group.
The great caddies help to make this a wonderful experience.
Only an hour from downtown HCMC this is a golfing experience not to be missed.

Had a great guide for our jungle walk. The walk on itself was not spectacular (which is normal if you stay in the proximity of the buildings), but we learned a lot from our guide during this walk.
The bear and gibbon rescue/rehabilitation center is nice to visit, but it is quite sad to see how several animals keep pacing -most likely due to their previous life in captivity/being held as a pet.
Overall, best thing was a great guide.

My shock is because Trip Advisor only took TWO YEARS after my request to list this place. In any case, it is a pleasure to review this nature reserve / park. It provides a wonderful 3-4 hours respite from Bien Hoa or Saigon. Beautiful trees, flowers, a small zoo, a lake and walking trails. Take a picnic meal or use in-park food sources. Cool and refreshing, small admission fee, many photo opportunities. Go and visit.

Dong Nai Culture And Nature Reserve

The nature reserve protects over 72,000ha of unique forest and jungle habitat and is one of the most ecologically important areas in Vietnam. You could spend a day here or an entire week exploring the jungle, Tri An Lake and local rural area in this unique region of southern Vietnam. Local Vietnamese escaping the city have been visiting this region for a long time, however foreign tourists are still a very rare site. There are a number of activities that can be done in the reserve including mountain biking, hiking, camping and overnight stays in forest ranger stations, historic tours of famous war relics, fishing, boating and swimming in Tri An Lake, local homestays, visits to organic farms and tours showcasing everyday rural life in the Vietnamese countryside. Most actives and tours should be organized in advance, as tourism is still low in the area. Contact the nature reserve and they can assist with organizing customized day trips or multi-day tours to suite your interests.

What a wonderful trip! Thanks for guys who are working at the ecotourism center of the reserve gave us the best service during our trip. You're very friendly and humorous. Staying at spacious room, trekking in the jungle, breathe fresh air, taking a lot of photo of butterfly and enjoying wild vegetable... everything was great.
Can't wait to return... :)

ホーチミン市内のホテルから車をチャーターしました。当日はあいにく天気が悪く、雨に降られている時間の方が長かったのが残念でしたが、自然を満喫出来ました。マングローブの茂る川をボートで移動。また、広大な敷地内で散歩しながら動物や植物観賞。特に湿地帯でのバードウォッチングがお勧めです。

Cao Minh Eco Tour

Reviewed By KhoaLV - Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Đọc được các bài review trên mạng miêu tả Khu Du lịch Sinh thái Cao Minh cứ như một khung cảnh miền quê châu Âu giữa Việt Nam vậy, thích hợp để đi cắm trại gia đình nữa nên mình tính lên đó chụp ảnh và nghỉ ngơi trong ngày.Nhìn chung thì đường đi tới Cao Minh từ Thành phố Hồ Chí Minh khá xa nhưng nếu kết hợp đi du lịch sinh thái vài ngày kết hợp với câu cá tại hồ Sông Mây hay đi ra Đảo Ó - Hồ Trị An khá lý tưởng, hoặc xa hơn có thể đi thẳng ra Rừng quốc gia Cát Tiên nữa.Quay lại Cao Minh thì ở đây không có nhiều trò để chơi, đặc biệt đối với khách lẻ đi 2 người như mình, nhưng sinh hoạt tập thể thì khá ổn. Có những khu vực đươc trang trí không gian như một tòa lâu đài với cá súng thần công khá đẹp nữa. Ngoài ra còn có một khoảng sân trống khá rộng để sinh hoạt, đêm hôm trước khi mình đến có vẻ như tại đấy vừa đốt lửa trại.Cao Minh có phục vụ cả cơm phần hoặc cơm đặc sản. Tụi mình không gọi các món đặc sản ở đây nên không đánh giá được nhưng nói thật là cơm phần không được ngon cho lắm với mức giá mắc hơn trung bình. Nếu đi đông nên gọi các phần lẩu đặc sản ở đây sẽ ổn hơn.Nếu muốn đổi gió, thoát khỏi nhịp sống đô thị ồn ào và cưỡi xe đi xa một chuyến thì rất có thể cân nhắc Cao Minh đó.

For the price this is quite the amazing place.
I have a six year old boy and we were staying at the resort - see review posted there - so our all day ticket was less than $20usd /e.
The rides are very good, although not up to the top USA resorts. But what makes up for that ten times over is no lines/queues at all. Some rides were actually just waiting for customers to arrive. Imagine that at Disney!
The amusement park has a water park of decent standard included.
The food and beverages were Asian but top value as costing almost nothing.
But this is on the other side of the world for the americas and Europe.
If you can get here it's probably the best thing on the island.

40.000 VND entrance fee. We came during rain season and it was a ghost park, no one there! Not even staff at the far corner with dirtbikes :( But totally worth it to walk around and see the animals. Especially the crocodile pit was very cool because they are VERY close and numerous!

I booked a tour for my team (18 people) for our last team building of 2 days. Here are my requirements while booking:
1. Trekking in the forest with some collective games
2. Having the whole woody house for the team as we would have private activities
3. Quiet place
Here is the organization:
1. Trekking was not at all in the forest. Games were so boring
2. The house area was under construction: it is noisy, dusty and we have the share the woody house. There were only 2 fans (1 didn’t work) for everybody.
3. As that were the construction site, the excavator were working outside while we have the meeting in the house, it was so noisy and I insisted many time so that they could stop.
I had the debriefing with the owner (Hieu, the director), I told him that he should not organize this tour because of the construction area, otherwise he should inform me in advance to check if we agreed with the construction condition before we signed the contract and made the full payment (the construction should be started few weeks before our contract signing). I was so disappointed when he told me “ We informed you when you were in the bus to this place”. He gave us no choice, he informed us on the bus and it was too late for us to change anything (payment was already made).
