Sunset on Saigon River by Speedboat (SIC) - Evening
Today’s tour will begin at 16:00. This afternoon get a unique look at the modern and traditional sides of the city on this Saigon River sunset cruise. Transfer to a boat jetty in the heart of the city and board a speedboat for a scenic sunset cruise.
Cast off for the Saigon River, leaving the modern skyline of the city behind. Travel through quiet canals to see traditional wooden houses perched on the water’s’ edge and pass by kids playing on the shoreline. See fishermen in small Mekong Delta-style boats casting their nets into the water and larger seafaring boats coming into port. During the two-hour cruise, the boat will also pass by signs of urban sprawl, a result of the rapidly developing population of Ho Chi Minh City.
As the sun begins to dip low in the sky, the boat will make its way back toward the city. Arrive just in time to catch the last rays of the day glinting off the skyline, admiring this beautiful scene from the ship’s deck. Then, as darkness descends, disembark at the jetty and return to the hotel.
- Suggested departure at 15:30 from your hotel or 15:45 for hotels closer to the Saigon River. For an additional charge Wine, champagne and canapés are also available for sunset tours. Please contact us for further info.
