The group made a river tour on 20 high-speed canoes, travelling from Ho Chi Minh City to My Tho in the Mekong Delta province of Tien Giang.

Earlier on December 114-15, the tourists explored the southern metropolis by touring major local historical landmarks such as Cu Chi tunnels, the Independence Palace, Notre Dame Cathedral, and Saigon Central Post Office.

According to Le Truong Hien Hoa, deputy director of the municipal Department of Tourism, offering river tourism is expected to make Ho Chi Minh City a unique travel destination.

Ho Chi Minh City seeks to turn waterway tourism into a distinctive tourism product by 2030. Indeed, it aims to offer waterway tourism services along the Saigon River in collaboration with the neighbouring localities of Dong Nai, Binh Dương, Tien Giang, Long An, and Ben Tre.

So far, the local tourism industry has introduced more than 47 waterway tourism products provided by 18 enterprises operating in the city.
