NDO – Three new waterway routes will be launched in Ho Chi Minh City in the second and third quarters of this year, departing from Bach Bach Wharf in District 1 to District 9 and 7 as well as Binh Quoi Tourist Village, according to the city’s Tourism Department.

Accordingly, the Bach Dang – district 9 route will pass through tourist sites including gardens, an Ao Dai (Vietnamese traditional long dress) museum, and a worshipping place of the founder of Vietnamese stage art.

During the route, visitors will have opportunity to experience farming life through various activities such as fish caching, and cooking.

The second route linking Bach Dang and Binh Quoi will entertain passengers with light and water musical shows on Saigon river.

Meanwhile, the route between Bach Dang Wharf and District 7 will stop by rural markets, food streets, and shopping areas.

A total of seven river way tourism routes have been put in operation in Ho Chi Minh City since 2017, aiming to promote local waterway transportation and provide visitors with a new option to explore the city.
