The city winds along the contours of the river. It's a working river with tugs, barges, water taxis, etc, going both directions. Our hotel (renaissance) provided a lovely view day and night. We walked along the street but a night cruise would be nice to...More

We walked along the river because we thought it sounded nice. We quickly learned why it isn't promoted as something to do in HCMC. The river is dirty and a bit smelly. There a beautifully manicured gardens and parks along the way juxtaposed by homeless...More

We enjoyed the Saigon river, we completed a tour of the Chu Chi Tunnels and instead of going back in our tour bus we were offered a river boat ride back to Saigon ($14 US). It was wonderful, the upper reaches of the river are...More

A vast river to walk along side, lots of activity along the way. Families, traders, fisherman and many Street vendors. The river itself, like much of Vietnam is used as a dump, which is a real pity. I struggle to grasp how the Vietnamese put...More

Must do at night. 45min-1hr ride. Begins with drink order with heart shaped cookies. River tour begins by first stopping at a magician station. He was great! Then a second station serenaded by local singers. Not the best type of music, but very intimate setting....More

The greatest challenge getting to the riverside is crossing Duong Ton Duc street. Once across, it is a nice, breezy stroll for mornings and late afternoons. There're also joggers plying the route. If you buy a drink from the street vendors you can sit at...More

We could see it from our hotel window - dirty and nothing of note. It was generally busy and looks like they are doing some development works.

Walk along the river to check out the local happenings, people fishing, families enjoying walks and recreation, fishing boats small and large, barges full of building materials, and river transportation. The river is far from clean but productive in terms of fish, there are fish...More
