Where to go in Saigon with kids during Tet 2021

Where to go in Saigon with kids during Tet 2021

This year’s Tet festivities will be very different due to the COVID-19, still we’re definitely not letting the pandemic stop us and will be celebrating safely from our homes, or socially distant from other families if we’re going out. Places like SnowTown, Jump Arena and many others had to close their doors until further notice, but still, there are many other places opening during Tet. We’ve pulled together a list of opening (and closing) hours for lots of great kid-friendly places including groceries stores around Ho Chi Minh City.
