At any amusement park run by the “big two” – Disney or Universal Studios – you can be whisked away to a picturesque fairytale castle, or live out scenes from your favourite movies. But what if what you really want is to ride through the depths of hell and then go alligator fishing? Suoi Tien Cultural Amusement Park, located on the outskirts of Ho Chi Minh City, is a mammoth of a theme park that delights and baffles in equal measure.
Suoi Tien is the world’s first (and, as yet, only!) Buddhist-themed amusement park. As well as rollercoasters, parades and a water park, the resort is also chock-full of Buddhist temples and statues, reflecting this important part of Vietnamese history.
Some people have all the luck. All we have in England is Alton Towers which may be hell but which has no alligator fishing.
Mind you it's given me an idea. What do you all think about the idea of a "Church of England Land?"
