Thao Cam Vien (Zoo and Botanical Gardens) is a great place to come to when you visit Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam. There are many animal and plant species here in this place. Photographers can take great pictures of this animal and plants. Though the zoo is regarded by many as not in great condition with not so good enclosures. It certainly is a place for photographers to take great pictures. A tip here for photographers would be to bring you telephoto lens to take those close-up shots of the animals as the animals tend to be quite expressive.


This place is also great for people to just take a walk and admire the flora as well. A tip here would be to bring loads of water as it can get quite hot and thirsty as you walk through the place.
