The basics

The skyscrapers along the Saigon River and behind Bach Dang Wharf come into their own as night falls and brilliant neon shades the Ho Chi Minh City skyline from gray to a riot of color. Many Saigon River night cruises start from Bach Dang Wharf. Dinner cruises, with Vietnamese food and live cultural performances, are a particularly popular option; some travelers opt to do their sightseeing by taking a return journey on the Saigon Waterbus.

Excellent customer service...
Honestly, review is regarding customer service for the dinner cruise. - we had ordered and paid for the dinner cruise but unfortunately the dates we picked were on the New Year. The cruise was not running these dates. Contacted buy email - telephone regarding this. Customer service was very helpful and we sorted the rebooking. Looking forward to the dinner cruise in a couple of weeks...

When to get there

Bach Dang Wharf is at its best after dark, when the skyline glitters and the eateries spring into action. If you’re planning to catch the Saigon Waterbus, be aware that it stops running early in the evening: a night cruise is a better option.

The Best Cruises From Ho Chi Minh City

A Saigon River dinner cruise brings you right into the heart of modern, dynamic Ho Chi Minh City. But there are many other worthwhile water tours. Zip north by speedboat to the Cu Chi Tunnels, an underground labyrinth created to counter American forces during the Vietnam War. Or, head south to the mangrove wetlands around Can Gio and Sat Vam to discover migrating birds, flying foxes, monkeys, and more.
