Why Kizciti is special ?
KizCiti is a pint-sized city where kids get to learn about the working world and pretend to be professionals like airline pilots, bakers, doctors, firemen, pharmacists, soccer stars and so many others.
It offers a totally unique and fun day out for kids aged 3 to 15! The grounds are literally like a city designed especially for kids, with buildings, banks, streets, trees and more.
What to explore at Kizciti?
Your children will have the opportunity to see what it’s like being an adult for a day, by trying out up to 24 different occupations! They get to dress up as firemen and use hoses, pop on a nurse’s costume to take care of patients, become an ice-cream maker, a pilot and so much more! When they work, they earn the currency called ‘Kizo’ to spend. A bracelet tracks their money and they can explore the grounds earning or spending their money. Kids are free to roam on their own, while parents can either wait in the streets or sit in the air conditioned restaurant while their children play.
How to get to Kizciti?
From Pham Ngu Lao, the park is easy to find. Head across the Nguyen Thai Hoc Bridge into District 4, take a right onto Hoang Dieu and follow the signs at the end of the road.

Tips for you
For kids from 4 years old up
Here, kids from 3 thru 15 can pretend they're adults for a day, and try up to 24 different occupations, including pilot, stewardess, doctor, fireman, farmer, ice cream maker, banker, milk producer, water producer, nurse, stylist, and policeman. They earn and spend special purpose money ("kizos"). Your kids will love it - at least if you let them do the afternoon shift (get there 3.30pm), and probably during a weekday. Then they don't have to compete with hordes of local school kids. You'll also suffer less from staying in the parents' area then (which is without aircon). Parents can keep track of their kids via each station's glass windows, plus via each kid's GPS bracelet. Not all occupations can be tried by the smallest kids (kids aged 7+ seemingly could do all occupations). The place is open until 9.30pm but it is no problem to leave earlier. Most staff speak some English, and signs are mostly translated into English as well. Kids that don't speak English or Vietnamese can still get along reasonably well by repeating what other kids (or helpful staff) do.
