Super indoor activities for children in Saigon
Yes there are heaps of indoor playgrounds here in Saigon, but we also found some special Christmas activities for you and your family to do:
Get the popcorn ready! CGV cinema has some great kids movies this month: Soul, the latest Disney movie is in theaters from december 25. For the older kiddo’s, Wonderwoman is being screened now. It’s a great time to go to the movies with the whole family!
Here’s one you wouldn’t think of doing in a tropical city like Saigon, but is perfect for the Christmas holidays. Take a break from the heat and take your kids ice skating! On the 5th floor of the Vincom mega mall in District 2 is the amazing Vincom Ice Rink. It’s a cool haven where you will need a sweatshirt and long pants. If it’s getting too crowded; there’s also a great ice skating rink at The Landmark 81.
And now you finally have the time to take the kids to the Artinus 3D museum. It’s in District 7 and three-dimensional fun is guaranteed with more than a 1000 original 3D paintings. For those who like original profile pics on their Facebook page or what’s app account- you will have many options to choose from. We are counting on a 3D Christmas option as well! Visiting from 5 years and up is recommended.
DIY crafts at home: Christmas snacks and ornaments
Christmas holidays are also a great time to sit down and take the time to create with the family. So ditch your work, pause your inner to-do list and get crafty. Your child will love you for it and it doesn’t cost a fortune either.
Whether you are a kitchen princess or kitchen clown, baking gingerbread cookies with the kids will make you feel like a regular Martha Stewart. What better time than the Christmas holidays?
If you want to tone it down a notch, make Strawberry Santas instead. Great as a dessert for that Saigon Christmas dinner at home. Or for any other day, because they are easy and simple to make. The kids will be able to do it pretty much themselves and have fun doing it.
A great thing to try are these cinnamon-scented ornaments. Kids love making Christmas ornaments out of dough and the cinnamon smell will make you feel like you are in Santa’s own home! They are easy to make and will hang in the tree before you know it.
Jolly times with your kids and these strawberry Santas

Saddle up! The Christmas holidays might be just the time for your mini-me to explore if there’s a gaucho hidden inside him or her! Drive to the Hippo Horse riding resort for half a day, a full day or even a few days. It’s about 45 minutes drive away, but boy is it worth it! You’re away from the city in a beautiful place where you can ride, relax and even swim. The French owners are trained instructors and take the well-being of their 4-legged beauties at heart. They offer horse riding lessons and clinics for children and adults of all ages. And even if you’re not a true gaucho but you want just want a night out of the city or throw a BBQ with friends, that’s also an option.
Need to blow off some steam and get outside? Take the kids to the Dat Butter farm. You might know their yummy products from the supermarkets in HCMC. What you probably didn’t know is, that in the weekends, they organize a fantastic farm and factory tour for kids and adults. In the middle of the green country side, this small boutique tour will teach you all about the farming of peanuts and the production of peanut butter. It’s interesting and interactive; our kids loved to put on their white lab coats and start creating their own jars of peanut butter.
