The Ho Chi Minh City Department of Transport collaborated with the Municipal Department of Tourism along with relevant departments, sectors, agencies of two Mekong Delta provinces of Tien Giang, Ben Tre, travel agents, tourism and transport businesses to perform the survey of waterway tourism from Bach Dang Wharf in Ho Chi Minh City to the provinces of Tien Giang and Ben Tre.
Through the survey, the waterway route was assessed to be clear, ensuring smooth transport for seagoing maritime vehicles; the reinforced concrete wharves met the requirements of picking up and dropping off passengers which connected with tourism sites; the road transport connected with the wharves easily which would create favorable conditions to exploit passengers and tourism.
Accordingly, the route started from Bach Dang Wharf, Sai Gon River, Nha Be River, Soai Rap River, Vam Co River – Cho Gao channel, Tien River, inland waterway wharf of Ben Tre Province (former Rach Mieu Ferry), Tien Giang Province (tourism ports of Mekong Taste and My Tho City and vice versa.
