Ho Chi Minh city to develop river tourism



Saigon River and Can Gio mangrove forest offer promising potential to develop river tourism.

Viet Nam News, ANN | Tue, Jul 12 2011


HO CHI MINH CITY - Ho Chi Minh (HCM) City is developing tourism activities related to the Saigon River and Can Gio mangrove forest, said a city official.

Nguyen Thi Hong, vice-chairwoman of the HCM City People's Committee, said the city was focusing on developing high-end tourism products, especially river tourism, and planned to make it the leading tourism sector of the city.

Nguyen Viet Anh, manager of travel under the city's Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism, said the tourism sector had put into operation the short river-tour from Bach Dang wharf in District 1 to T-junction Nha Be - Lang Hoa Si in District 2 at the end of 2010.

Many travel agencies also offer this tour to foreign visitors.

In addition, the city has worked with the tourism sector of neighbouring Binh Duong Province to study river tours from Bach Dang wharf to Cu Chi District in HCM City and to Thu Dau Mot District in Binh Duong Province, Anh noted.

Anh also said that the HCM City tourism sector would conduct two surveys about river tours from Bach Dang wharf to Can Gio District on Long Tau River and Soai Rap River within this year and next year.

The city will also focus on developing sports on the river.


Tourists visit the Can Gio mangrove forest in HCM City.

When the Thu Thiem Tunnel is open to traffic, the Tau Hu - Ben Nghe canal will be dredged and developed to serve many river tourism activities.

Travel businesses said the city should upgrade the Bach Dang wharf to develop it into a port for picking up tourists.

At present, many big vessels carrying foreign tourists have to berth at cargo ports instead of Bach Dang wharf because of its poor facilities.

Saigon River and Can Gio mangrove forest offer HCM City promising potential to develop river tourism.

The number of foreign tourists coming to HCM City accounts for 60 per cent of total number of foreign tourists to Viet Nam.
