Saigon River

See bustling Ho Chi Minh City and the peaceful countryside from the river for a different perspective on Vietnam.

As the Saigon River flows down to the South China Sea, it snakes through South Vietnam, bringing with it trade and travellers. For a romantic encounter, book a floating restaurant or dinner cruise. The Ho Chi Minh City skyline by night is sure to impress. Or how about a speedboat tour of the countryside? Head upstream for a buffet lunch or temple visit on Thanh Da Island. Go downstream to explore the Can Gio Mangrove Forest and Viet Cong-dug Cu Chi Tunnels.
