As a sprawling metropolis packed with thousands of people of hundreds of backgrounds and interests, it is little wonder that Ho Chi Minh City has a thriving skate culture. The Saigon Skatepark on Thanh Đa Island to the north-east of Bình Thạnh district is a 15 by 50m warehouse packed with ramps and rails for the city’s skaters and BMX riders. Other than this, there is a flourishing street-skating crowd based at different spots in the city and largely in district 1. The city has a number of skateboarding shops selling a range of long-boards and trick boards, gloves, gear and international brands, and prices are generally in a similar range to in other countries.
