Discovering Snow Town in the Heart of Hot Saigon

Posted: Monday, April 24, 2017

Snow Town Saigon, a theme playground, was officially opened at the end of March 2017. Saigon, which has no winter, has a Japanese-style Snow Town whose temperature is about 20 degrees Celsius.

Snow Town Saigon invested by Phuoc Thanh Company on an area of 4,000 square metres in District 2, Ho Chi Minh City is adapted from snow-creating technology of Japan. This is the only technology in the world to keep snow unmelted at room temperature. Snow particles will not melt at a temperature of about 20°C. Snow Town Saigon is built in the same way as Snow Town Bangkok in the Gateway Ekamai Shopping Mall, Bangkok, Thailand but it has a much larger size. Snow Town Saigon has the largest ski area in Southeast Asia.

Mr Kataro Maru, Director of Snow Town & Ice Rink at Showa Holdings, said, “Snow at Snow Town Saigon has the same composition as normal snow. Thus, it is safe to use. As no chemical components are used, there is a sense of naturalness when we touch it in the air. Snow is not melted in room temperature because we minimise water and moisture to create super-thin and ultra-light, hardest-to-melt snow granules in the world. Compared with ordinary snow and snow made from other snow machines, snow at Snow Town Saigon can stay 80 per cent longer in room temperature.”

Therefore, customers can wear their favourite clothes, even short-sleeved shirts, when playing at Snow Town Saigon because the temperature is always kept at about 18 degrees Celsius, not too cold. Besides, at this heat, customers can play, eat and drink without being worried about health.

Snow Town Saigon is a playground for people of all ages. Customers will have the opportunity to experience exciting and engaging games without requiring any experience or skill. Romantic people can walk under the snow and feel the temperate atmosphere as in Korean romantic drama. For those who love thrills, they can go skiing. Children can also play a lot of games here like making snowman and other shapes.

Mr Nguyen Minh Tuan, a resident in District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, commented: “My family, especially my children, are much waited for the opening of Snow Town Saigon. My kids are delighted at interesting games. I myself find it interesting to stay in the cool space under the heat of the summer. The temperature is comfortable to play without having to worry about harm to our health.”

The entry ticket price of VND150,000 - 200,000 per person is similar to that of other playgrounds in downtown trade centres. However, students and low income earners can hardly afford regular visits. But, sensing the atmosphere of Europe in the heart of Saigon is worthwhile.

Therefore, since Snow Town Saigon was inaugurated, it welcomes 6,000 - 7,000 people to come play here every weekend or pubic holidays. To meet growing demand of dwellers and tourists, Showa Holdings will seek investors to open two new Snow Towns in Da Nang and Hanoi.

With a unique idea, Snow Town Saigon satisfies the psychology and needs of customers, especially young people and children. This place not only opens up a relaxing playground for visitors but also attracts customers and promotes business in commercial centres.
