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.


Bike Tours

When we say bike, we don't mean the motorised kind. We're talking about pedal power, sans internal combustion engine. Free-wheeling from Ho Chi Minh City to the hills of Dalat or coastline of Phan Thiet gives a totally different perspective on Vietnam and provides a glimpse of Vietnamese rural life, smells included. In Saigon, check out Vietnam Bike Tours for group and private tours. Rustle up a pair of wheels and get going, as bicycling provides one of the best ways to travel leisurely while maximising your sightseeing.

There are a number of bike tour companies based in HCMC. Try Vietnam Bike Tours, established in 2005. They run a variety of tours including multiday treks through the Mekong Delta. The relatively flat topography of southern Vietnam means bicycling is fairly effortless. The predominance of bicycles in the Saigon region means that you are never far from a repair shop should a gremlin climb inside the gears.
