Public Parks

Where to go dancing in Ho Chi Minh City? Parks! Parks are one of the most popular spots where everyone gathers to dance; it’s one of the weirdest things you might encounter in Vietnam. Those performances are either informal and more of a gathering or classes you can participate in. Nevertheless, stroll the parks, and you may enjoy the fun with friendly Vietnamese! We recommend Tao Dan Park (55C Nguyen Thi Minh Khai Street, Ben Thanh Ward, District 1). With 100,000 square meters, it has space for everybody, so you can easily spot large dance groups here on the weekend.
