The Best Time to Visit Vinwonders Hoi An Amusement Park

During the dry season when it’s always sunny (February to September), the Vinwonders Nam Hoi An theme park is a popular choice for tourists and locals. To avoid the crowds, visitors should come earlier than 9 am (if possible, reserve tickets in advance). The Safari is often crowded, and the queue can be skipped for early (first) comers. Additionally, the temperature is not too high at that time either. On the other hand, if visiting the park later (especially around lunchtime), it’s busy everywhere. Long lines of tourists waiting for experiences may make kids impatient.   

Using an after-4pm ticket pass to enter and enjoy entertainment in the park is another good choice. For those who don’t like to spend too much time here, it’s more proper (especially if traveling with elders). At night, visitors can witness two shows regularly, and one more show from Friday to Sunday. The last performance begins at 7:30 pm and ends at 7:50 pm. Therefore, it’s really possible to stay in the park until its closing time. After the Vinwonders, Hoi An’s old town is most perfect to continue discovering the area.

Note: Before going to the Vinwonders Hoi An theme park, visitors should bring a swimsuit, swim glasses, sun cream, sun glasses, bottles of water, cash money and a small bag to contain that stuff. If traveling kids, stroller, hat/cap/umbrella, snacks, and other necessary things need to be prepared in advance.

It’s big, so very easy to recognize.

From Hoi An’s Old town and the surroundings, Tran Nhan Tong St is most convenient. At the traffic light (when it encounters Vo Chi Cong St), turn right and cross the bridge.
