The old Thu Thiem ferry service at Bach Dang Wharf in District 1, which once ferried passengers across the Saigon River, has now switched its function by catering to tourists and servicing transport companies, from February 7.

Le Manh Ha, deputy chairman of the People’s Committee in Ho Chi Minh City and various representatives from city departments attended the opening ceremony of the new ferry service.

The Thu Thiem ferry service officially halted operations on November 20, when the Thu Thiem Tunnel opened for traffic, as figures from the City Bridge and Ferry Management Company showed that only 9,000 people used the ferry service per day.
