Transport : Boating & Cruises

Sometimes, a luxury speedboat is the only way to travel, and a Les Rives river cruise offers a truly unique way to explore Vietnam. Quicker and more comfortable than a coach tour, it allows you to experience an authentic taste of Mekong River life and see parts of the country that you just wouldn’t see when travelling by road. Based in Ho Chi Minh City, Les Rives is run by a highly trained international team, all of whom boast impressive local knowledge and enthusiasm for the area. With your safety and comfort the number one priority, plenty of refreshments and even Wi-Fi on board, you can simply relax and enjoy this fascinating and enlightening experience.

Sunset Cruise
A romantic cruise along the winding canals of Saigon – once known as the pearl of the Far East, this is an experience that will stay with you for a long time. Guides pick you up from your hotel in Ho Chi Minh City and take you by car to the pier to board the speedboat. As the boat departs, you can observe the hustle and bustle of city life from the water, before exploring the fascinating canals and tributaries, scenes of traditional riverside life and even lush, green jungle. Finally, when the sun begins to set, the city lights up for the night – a magical sight to observe from the river. With plenty of refreshments, a knowledgeable, English speaking tour guide and transport back to your hotel at the end of the trip, this is a totally effortless way to enjoy the city.
