BINH QUOI

Start by BlueRiver Tours from Tan Cang Pier (A100, Ung Van Khiem Str, Ward 25, Binh Thanh Dist, HCMC). Visitors have an opposite overview of the Vietnamese traditional lifestyle on the right river bank and the dynamic and modern lifestyle on the left side. Then, you will pass the Saigon Pearl, one of the most luxury apartments in the urban.  Having continued downstream to Thanh Da canal, the boat goes in Kinh Bridge. Tourists have sightseeing and take photos on the way.  Then the boat reaches Binh Quoi Village (8 km far away from Saigon) where numerous thatched cottages in the Northern countryside are found.

Moreover, tourists can sit by the riversides to enjoy fresh coconut under the shade of coconut tree. This lush garden-like ground with lawns, coconut trees, creeks, and thatched cottages, presenting a view of days gone by in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta region will satisfy difficult travelers, who consider slow-life pace necessary in everyday life.
