In a word, awesome. I honestly don\'t know what I would do if this website didn\'t exist. A wealth of information that is unparalleled to anything I have seen in many other Asian cities. Downsides? Somewhat strict and counter-intuitive rules regarding posting questions. That and a pool of smug us...

This park, wrapped around a statue of Lenin, is actually not known as Lenin Park by most locals. The name Lenin Park is linked to what is now officially called Thong Nhat (Unity) park, roughly 2.5km to the south. Most locals still refer to Thong Nhat park as Lenin Park, and this park as Chi Lang park, or simply the small park with the Lenin statue. This is important for anyone interested in actually getting to where they want to go with local drivers.
Of course, one could always just emphasize the scale of the park to make the point: perhaps mini-Lenin versus super-Lenin.
Obviously, nothing beats a statue of one of the sweetest, gentlest and most tolerant men in history. Ouch!

I give the statue of Le Nin 5*s because of the splendid irony of the view he enjoys from his pedestal: 5 ATMs facing him on the opposite side of the road.
A triumph of consumerism, surely.

I did not realise this little hive of energy would be so awesome! I have driven past a million times and never stopped. Last night was the night! There was so much to watch at one time 3 your old pro roller bladder, break dances, extreme fitness workouts, skateboarders. It is an awesome place to chill out and watch or get involved and do something off the seat of a bar or motorbike.

Great people watching! Not to mention the lady on your right if you were standing facing Ong Lenin makes the best damn tra chanh. I need to make time and go back!

Great clean family fun to be had here at night.

The electric car and scooters cost 20,000 for 10 minutes and are the cause of many tantrums when it's time to stop. You can even hire a mini cyclo if you feel like it.
