Suoi Tien Cultural Amusement Park, Vietnam

Really want to go to this Cultural theme park? It looks so amazingly garish, colourful and generally looks like a Vietnamese kid's fantasy playground (maybe with added hallucinations too).
Cultural theme parks are a funny thing... Are they promoting a false stereotype of the country? Are they encouraging them not to development beyond this particular way of existing? Who is this theme park actually aimed towards?
