Exploring an abandoned theme park in Vietnam

After visiting the imperial city in Huế , we spent the afternoon on a much more unique tour. We drove our bikes out to an abandoned half-constructed theme park.

Driving along the broken up pavement, you first approach a gigantic structure protruding from the middle of a lake, a dragon’s head with a gaping snarling mouth protecting a dome.

Further round the path are the old swimming pools, littered with rotten leaves, adorned with graffiti and stagnant green water.

Other parts of the site include some broken down huts and an old auditorium for water shows.

I love abandoned places, the way nature begins to reclaim man made materials in an oddly familiar and eerie way

treading carefully across shattered glass in a silent room, it felt like something straight out of the walking dead
