The inner-city waterway network will give visitors a chance to enjoy a stroll through the city and a peaceful moment away from the busyness of everyday life.
Ho Chi Minh City has a great potential for water-way tourism with about 1,000 km of rivers and canals running through historical sites and fruit gardens. A water-way tour will give travelers an opportunity to explore cultural and historical sites, architectural works and cuisine along river banks. According to the city’s government, waterway tourism will become a typical tourist product of Ho Chi Minh City.
