Thu Le Park or Hanoi zoo is a popular place for families, especially those with young children.

 

 

Thu Le Park was built on 19 May 1975 and then opened to the public in 1977. Thu Le Park has been well-known as another name Thu Le Zoo or Hanoi zoo by most of the locals in Hanoi, especially children. The park is a complex of Green Park, zoo and amusement park.

Located in a huge are of 29 hectares, Thu Le Zoo is an ideal place for walking tour since it is encompassed by lush green grasses and an exquisite collection of tree, small plants and flowers. Owing to this, the park offers visitors relaxing glimpse as well as fresh air and beautiful landscape. This area is also chosen by many photographers as their source of innovation.

With owning five exhibition areas, the zoo is now having 40 animal houses with more than 600 animals of more than 100 species. Among which, 40 species are listed in Vietnam Red Book and many are gifts from countries in different continents, such as: Europe, Africa, America and Australia. Some rare animals being preserved here are Indo-Chinese tigers, lions, leopards, elephants, and hippos.

Besides sightseeing its scenery and understanding about animals, visitors might also attend more energetic outdoor activities in the park. The most interesting one should be swan boat driving along its 6 hectares lakes which you may have the most romantic time with your partners.

All children would yell out loud enthusiastically when their parents make a trip to Thu Le Park. Because, they can find a wide array of entertaining games like high speed train, bubble houses or rollerblading.

 

 

The best time to visit the Thu Le Park should be during summer, in every afternoon when the sun is about to set. The reason is the animals here are prone to come out for sunbathing more frequently and to avoid the steamy sunlight. However, one disadvantage of the park that it is a little bit smelly as a typical characteristic of a zoo.

The park can be approached by both of its gates, one on Kim Ma Street and the other on Buoi Road.
