Boating on Nhieu Loc Canal worth a try
Update: Oct 30, 2015
How can tourists enjoy Sai Gon? Any recommendation for them to learn more about the most boisterous city in Viet Nam? A city tour starts with some scenic spots and ends with a romantic meal on board a restaurant boat. It’s a normal tour. But now, the newly launched boat tour on Nhieu Loc Canal will surely allow visitors to explore the city from a different perspective, especially at twilight.

Departing from a wharf on Hoang Sa Street, travelers will spend one hour and a half paddling along 4.5 kilometers of the 10-kilometer Nhieu Loc Canal which runs through many districts.

The tour allows guests to see daily life as well as many iconic structures of the city such as bridges and pagodas. The tour guide in ao dai (traditional Vietnamese dress) will explain to visitors the histories of Nhieu Loc Canal and tourist sites along the way together with the development of HCMC.

On the boat, passengers will be served with coconut juice and tropical fruit while indulging themselves in cool breeze. Moreover, tourists will have a chance to enjoy don ca tai tu (southern amateur music) and harmonica performances by artists on two other boats. As night falls, travelers can float paper lanterns on the canal and make a wish.

The tour can be booked via 08.35260991.
