Why Bao Son Paradise is special ?
The 20ha entertainment and tourism complex, built at a total cost of US$50 million by the Bao Son Investment and Construction Group, consists of four main areas: traditional craft villages of Viet Nam, a replica of Ha Noi’s ancient quarters, the eco-tourism area and a culinary section offering cuisine from all corners of Viet Nam. The park opens up a new world for local visitors with a harmonious blend of both traditional and modern features.
What to explore at Bao Son Paradise?
The traditional craft village section features replicas of the 15 most well-known craft villages of Viet Nam, including Phu Lang pottery village, Van Phuc silk village and villages specializing in making craft products such as gemstone-inlaid pictures, bamboo and rattan-made handicrafts and embroidery. It reflects not only their craft methods but also their local setting and background.
The ancient quarter section features the daily activities of Hanoians during the early years of the 20 century. There are more than 20 old-style attached houses with roof tiles. Each house resembles a shop that sells various things such as clothing, watches, art works and beverages, displaying the lifestyles and business practices of old-school Hanoians.
The largest area of the park is the eco-tourism area which features an ocean world of more than 2,000 species of fish from different continents, including sharks, sea-calves and skates alongside various types of euphorbia. It also consists of a royal garden which boasts around 500 varieties of rare and precious orchids of Viet Nam and Southeast Asia and a museum displaying a large cross-section of butterflies and flowers from different countries around the world.
The culinary section offers visitors a wide range of choice from traditional Vietnamese dishes to Asian and European dishes. It features 31 food stores selling traditional specialties of all regions throughout the country such as pho (noodle), cha ca Hanoi (Hanoi-style grilled fish) and banh tom (crisp shrimp pastry), all of which can be found on street corners the length and breadth of the nation.
This Vietnamese version of Disneyland also hopes to attract both local and foreign tourists, particularly kids through its many games in the entertainment section, including a Ferris wheel, a discovery spacecraft area, a swimming pool and a 3D cinema. Children can watch exciting, fun-filled dolphin and seal shows, in two daily showings in the weekday and four showings on Saturday and Sunday. It also features a modern and multifunctional complex for public performances with a large stage and a viewing area for more than 7,000 people.

Tips for you
So today we visited this theme park just 6km outside Hanoi and quite close to The Gardens.. It was a little dated, but actually really good.. Spent most of the day at the park, enjoying various attractions including an amazing aquarium, zoo and dolphin show. Given it was winter season, very little tourists.. And so call and check they are open before you visit.. Really amazing
