This Amusement Park Near Hanoi, Vietnam Is The Largest In SEA To Add To Your 2024 Travel Bucket List  

Sun World Halong Complex – SEA’s largest theme park 

Rollercoaster addicts would find that there’s no shortage of new theme parks in Asia. From the new World of Frozen at Hong Kong Disneyland to the upcoming Junglia Nature Theme Park in Okinawa, wandering thrillseekers can just hop on a plane to get their adrenaline fix. 

Well, let us put Sun World Halong Complex on your radar. Located in the heart of Halong city in Vietnam, It’s Southeast Asia’s largest theme park, spanning 214 hectares. That’s about 2 times the size of Gardens by the Bay, which occupies 101 hectares.

Don’t mistake Sun World Halong Complex as just one massive theme park, though. It actually has several parks spread out across 2 main areas: The Coastal Amusement Park and Amusement Park on Ba Deo Hill.

They’re connected by a double-decker cable car system that boasts the longest cable car track in the world. But that’s not all, visitors can see views of the world-famous Halong Bay from these cable cars – so you can sightsee while heading to the next park.

Those travelling with kids should check out Mystic Mountain, a family-friendly park with attractions like the Wax Museum, Magic Land, Koi Bridge, Zen Garden, and Sun Wheel. The latter is a gigantic Ferris wheel standing at 296m high, and has probably appeared on Instagram feeds worldwide as one of the complex’s most iconic attractions.
