Children need activities aside from school too! And in Saigon, there are a wide variety of activities for children to enjoy. Although there is limited open parkland space, there are several publicly available pools, a number of tennis and basketball courts, two climbing walls, an ice rink and several health and wellness centres that provide child-specific activities like yoga for children. In addition, there are several zoos and gardens, sports centres who take children in be it for summer camps focused on a specific sport (eg. football, basketball, tennis, etc.) or on an ongoing basis with the aim of improving abilities and developing life skills.
