“Cruise” on the Saigon Water Bus

Cruising sure is one of the most romantic things to do in Ho Chi Minh but for those low on budget, fancy boats are out of the question. Instead, try “cruising” on the Saigon Water Bus! With only VND 15,000, you’ll still get to go along the Saigon River and have a look at the city’s lesser-known parts.

Experience Ho Chi Minh City’s Other Side

Nothing screams “romantic” more than going on an adventure together. Book an off-the-beaten-path city tour or a food tour for two, and prepare to dive into the magical world of “small alleyways - colorful culture”.
