HCMC to offer rowboat tours of canal

Last week, the Saigon Boat Company received approval to begin offering rowboat tours of “an attractive downtown portion” of Saigon’s Nhieu Loc-Thi Nghe Canal, running from the Saigon Zoo in District 1 to District 3’s Vinh Nghiem Pagoda. According to local news outlet Thoi Bao Kinh Te Saigon, the boats can carry up to 20 passengers and will take around two hours to make the one-way trip. Construction has already begun on the two piers that will be used for the trip. Saigon Boat Company also offers boat tours between District 4’s historic Nha Rong Wharf and Binh Dong Wharf in District 8.
