Experience the romance of Saigon – a city once known as the Pearl of the Far East – as you explore its winding canals and waterways on a luxury speedboat tour and enjoy the busy and illuminated city at night. This unique and authentic experience is our newest tour, combining the famous Sunset Cruise on Saigon River and deliciously hectic yet comfortable drive in Saigon busy streets at night by vintage 2CV car.
Firstly, the speedboat will bring you to an old area of Saigon, where you can see a mixture of architectural styles, urban sceneries combined with historical objects. You will pass Nha Rong Wharf (The Dragon House) built in 1863 by French colonialists, where now Ho Chi Minh Museum is located. You will see Saigon Port and observe the life of the inhabitants of Saigon by night. You will also visit Mieu Noi floating temple, built in 18 century in the middle of Vam Thuat River, which is considered to be one of the most unique architectural works in Vietnam.
After going back to Tan Cang pier, hop in a vintage 2CV car and drive through the busy streets of Saigon and brings you to the major landmarks of the city.
It’s the perfect opportunity for first timers to get the real pulse of the city.
Grab your camera and get ready for the panoramic views and the adventure!
