Đại Nam Văn Hiến is a tourism complex in Bình Dương Province, Vietnam. Open on September 11, 2008, Dai Nam Tourist - Cultural - Historical Zone includes the first safari in Vietnam and the largest artificial sea in Southeast Asia and is expected to be the biggest park and tourist destination in the country by 2010.
Đại Nam Sea is 21.6 hectare, with a total water surface area of 20,000 sq.m and coast of 1.4 km long. The artificial sea has beaches, with artificial waves up to 1.6m high. The construction of the largest tourism site started in about 1999, on a 450 hectare plot of land, some 40 kilometers from Ho Chi Minh City. The Paradise now includes the Đại Nam Văn Hiến Temple, an entertainment site, zoo, shopping area, hotels, and cuisine sites. The 12.5ha open zoo is part of the 450ha Lac Canh Đại Nam Văn Hiến Entertainment Complex. The park is home to rhinos, white lions, tigers, elephants, bears, ostriches, chamois, zebras, gnus, squirrel-monkeys, and foxes, many of which are not typically found in Viet Nam (Wikipedia).
Yeah! We've been here.. My mom, my and my cousins!
This tempel which we were going to visit is all gold-plated.
You couldn't take photos or record inside the temple, you could photograph a special "krystal-flower" which's placed there. It's a kind of flower that comes to grow every 3000 years.
