It's closing.... So hurry.. insta made it famous, but it's worth it.

Tip... Don't be scared of by security, just toss them a few bux they don't really care.. I would say if you are taking a taxi it's quite the walk from where they will drop you. Rent a scooter for the day and go see a few sites.

It’s pretty easy to get to here. We were met by three individuals (who we thought were ‘security’) who asked for 20k dong, which we paid. After being at the dragon slide for like 5 minutes we heard a whistle, which turned out to be ‘actual security’. He first told us 40k each, but before we could answer he just told us to go (even though other people arrived and we informed him we paid already). So we took out bikes back to the entrance, waited a couple minutes then walked back around without seeing him again.

It’s deffo worth the trip as it’s different to usual site-seeing and quite interesting. Just be wary & prepared to pay 40k dong as it isn’t 20k anymore, unless you can avoid security ;)

Great hidden gem for some fantastic photos.
Only thing is, it's hard to get into as they have 'security' on the front gate that tell you that you cannot go in due to health and safety.
Before you get to the gate, there is a dirt track on the left, & there will be a woman there asking you to pay to park (don't pay her, just park a little further down the road!). If you walk down the dirt track (and the trees) & make a right it will lead you straight to the dragon slide. If you use google maps it's easy to find.
We got there easy enough & the security guard said no, until I said we only wanted to take pictures & wouldn't be long he said we could stay if we paid him 20,000VND each (0.86USD), we only have 10,000VND in cash which he settled for so maybe don't carry too much with you so you can 'give all you have'.
We stayed there for around 40 minutes. Had a good wander round. There was loads of other tourists that came the same way as us so it's obviously not 'off limits'.
Just be polite & understanding & 'security' are happy to let you stay with no trouble.

Thủy Tiên Lake Abandoned Park is about 9km from the Hue city center about 30 mins drive by motorbike. It is on the way with Khải Định tomb. So you can spend half and half day for 2 attractive places.

It was such a nice place to visit but it was hard to get in because it seems to be forbidden to visit. We paid the guard at the entrance to get in. It is an abandoned water park with nice surroundings.

The place is really amazing! Feels like some post-apocalyptic world.

In theory, the entrance is forbidden, but guides charge you 20k dongs and let you enter the forest. After 10 min walk you will get to the dragon statue. Slides and swimming pools are hidden further in the forest

We visited again on July eighteen. Among the highlights of the whole SEA travels of ours! I can remember performing the research of mine and being so disappointed when I hear you couldnt get in, but we pressed the good fortune of ours and went! The guard we came across was extremely lenient once we handed him 100k dong.
Its simply so cool and eerie! Incredible to think about the way it might be fixed up! All of the structures are recoverable. I feel it was created before the time period of its, it will were a hit launched a decade later on with the quantity of tourism Vietnam has now.

I always wanted to visit this place and I must say we really enjoyed it. First building with a big dragon head is a place where the aquariums used to be. You can go upstairs to the dragon‘s „mouth“ and see the view on the whole park. Then, you have to cross the bridge and go to the right, that‘s where the pool area with toboggans is. If you continue walking a bit more, you will see a flight simulator and a theatre where the water shows used to be performed. For me it was definately worth visiting as I like abandoned places. I wish I had done it few years earlier when it wasn’t as destroyed as it is now though.

Take a motorbike (as Hué is easy to drive and less crowded as eg. Hanoï) out of town and head for the pink gate to this abandoned waterpark, that was closed more than 10 years ago. Big signs and a guard will tell you the park is closed, but pay some 20.000 VND to the guard and park on the assigned spot and he will show you the small path trough the woods to enter the location. This is laidback urbex, as some ladies herding cows will be selling drinks at the location. Head first for the impressive dragon-feature set in a big lake for a real Jurassic Park sensation. Visit the (smashed) empty aquarium and climb the stairs into the dragon's mouth.
Explore the area and discovery the derelict water slides and other relics of this once bustling place.
