Dai Nam Zoo: Healthiest Park in the World

Dai Nam Zoo: Healthiest Park in the World
Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam 

While we have gotten used to feasting on junk
 food whenever we visit a zoo or a theme park,

…where they are flooded with temptingly
delicious but otherwise unhealthy food,

…ranging from greasy  fast food dishes,

…to saccharine candies and treats.

So, it was a surreal experience when
we visited the beautiful Dai Nam Zoo
in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam,

…and discovered that they sell nothing but 
healthy snacks of fresh fruits and veggies.


Some are sold as a whole fruit,

…while some were halved and skewered
on bamboo sticks to eat as food to go,

…and some prepared into small
bite size pieces for easy snacking.

It was a pleasant experience for my family as we didn’t
realize, that something so ideal and perfect-  of having 
everything but healthy food choices could actually be done.

It was doable. For the health professionals advocating
healthy lifestyles could learn a valuable lesson or two


  1. It was very useful for me. Keep sharing such ideas in the future as well. This was actually what I was looking for, and I am glad to came here! Thanks for sharing the such information with us.

    1. In a way yes. It makes life simpler and less complicated

  3. Bleh.

    That could be the most boring zoo in the world.

    There's noting to eat.

  4. Great idea. It's a good practice to help the children eat healthy foods. :)

    1. Indeed. How about offering something similar in Nuvali? Your company is known to advocate eco friendly and healthy living. That would be great.
