Ho Thuy Tien Water Park - tx. Huong Thuy, Vietnam

This is for those who enjoy apocalyptic scenes, and who doesn’t these days? In 2004, Ho Thuy Tien Water Park was opened prior to its full completion. While the attractions, including a 3-story dragon aquarium, did bring in some business, the park didn’t make enough money to keep it running. Ironically it is more of a tourist attraction now that it is crumbling into ruins. On arrival, visitors to the park will find a “guard” sitting there waiting for a tip before he lets you in to explore.

Am Phu Hell Cave - Troy Son, Marble Mountains Huyen Tran Cong Chua, Hoa Hai, Vietnam

Visiting Am Phu Cave outside Da Nana is a fascinating experience of the Buddhist heaven and hell. The hell cave is deep down inside the mountain and there is a demon-like sculpture waiting for you around every corner, while the smell of incense is in the air. It is no easy walk down to “hell” but it is a rewarding experience. It is also not too easy climbing back out!
