Boat Tours

For a different perspective of Ho Chi Minh City, splurge on a trip with Les Rives. There are daily scheduled journeys to the Cu Chi Tunnels that exchange the standard bumpy bus ride for a one hour scenic speed boat voyage up the Saigon River. A private English-speaking guide ensures a leisurely pace, and your day is capped by a picnic lunch on the return trip. Prices start from USD79 (VND1,667,000) per passenger for the Cu Chi excursion.
 

It is possible to tour waterways in and around HCMC by longtail, speed and jet boat. Les Rives offers private river cruises of the Cu Chi Tunnels, Mekong Delta, and HCMC and nearby canals. Most boats leave at the pier on the Saigon River across from the Renaissance Riverside Hotel. You can even arrange to be picked up at your hotel and then taken to the pier. As you cruise the Mekong Delta, observe scenic jungle canals, pagodas, riverside markets and colonial architecture.
