Snow Town Saigon in The CBD Premium in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

(Developing Story)

Experience Japan!

For the first time, people from Ho Chi Minh City will enjoy an atmosphere in a town covered in snow. Feel delighted with snow winds when walking, falling snowflakes, a ski (made with artificial snow, with a thickness of about 30-40cm) and admire the stunning snow sculptures.

Snow Town Saigon is a European-inspired indoor town filled with snow and has the height of 3 floors. There are streets that you can visit such as the streets with restaurants, night bars, Japanese famous characters, exhibition area, digital entertainment, and coffee shops. Imagine sipping your coffee along the street side filled with snow.

No jackets? no problem. Kids playing snow at Snow Town.

This huge hall is freezing from 15 to 10 degrees Celsius making this snow town a virtual place of a Japanese town during the winter season.

Residents of CBD, that includes me, would just press the elevator down and instantly hop into this snowy town, how lucky!
