District 11: Phu Tho Horse Track

The Phu Tho Horse Track offers one of the more unique opportunities in Ho Chi Minh City. It was founded by French Colonists during French Indochina, but has been closed for horse racing for some time. The 1-mile hard dirt track is open to the public, and it is a popular place for recreational activities. For more, add a small loop around the Phú Thọ exercise complex next door.

Note: the track can be muddy after rain.
