Ho Chi Minh City launches a new rowboat tour to downtown canal

Ho Chi Minh City plans to introduce rowboats to allow tourists to travel an attractive downtown portion of the Nhieu Loc-Thi Nghe canal starting this December.
The itinerary will be rowed along the canal between the Saigon Zoo and Vinh Nghiem, one of the biggest pagodas in the city, which usually hosts religious exhibitions and festivals.
A one-way trip will take around two hours and each boat will be able to carry 20 passengers. The boats will run every day from early in the morning to 11pm when conditions allow, the canal is not very wide, around 60 meters, which makes a rowboat suitable
Propelling a boat with oars will also provide an interesting experience for tourists. The canal trip will be included in tours around the city
Ho Chi Minh City currently offers seven canals and river tours and is building necessary wharves and piers to further develop waterway tourism.
Nguyen Viet Anh, head of the travel office at the HCMC Department of Tourism, Sports and Culture, said eight to ten new piers will be put in used by the end of this year.
