"For the Year of the Pig, I wanted to do something meaningful; so I bought nearly 4,000 piggybanks from workshops in Binh Duong. Each has a different shape. Also, since I was born in the Year of the Pig, I want to celebrate this year for myself too," said Vu Duc Sinh, owner of the amusement park.

It took 20 days to set up the piggybank playground over an area of 1,000 m2 in the whole tourist area of over 7,000 m2. "In the process of transporting and arranging, many pigs were broken," Sinh said.

18-month-old Su enjoyed running, carrying dozens of piggybanks. "Even though we have a piggybank for saving lucky money at home, seeing so many pigs in one place makes my daughter very excited. I will buy her a pig that she likes best," said Su's father.
