HCMC – The Saigon Zoo and Botanical Garden in downtown HCMC is set to reopen from November 5, nearly half a year after it was closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Pham Van Tan, director of the Saigon Zoo Company, said the zoo has met the necessary conditions to resume operations and is adopting the relevant safety measures.
Those who received a dose of a Covid-19 vaccine more than 14 days ago can take their children to the zoo.
The entrance tickets cost VND60,000 per adult and VND40,000 per child, the local media reported.
The zoo was closed from May because of the Covid-19 pandemic. At the end of September, the Saigon Zoo Company sought help because it had no income to run the zoo.
The Saigon Zoo and Botanical Garden has some 1,300 animals of 125 species and some 2,500 green trees with over 900 preserved species.
