Ho Chi Minh City to build piers for waterway tourism

Published on : Monday, November 25, 2013

images227178_bentau1.kkThe People’s Committee of Ho Chi Minh City has given approval for building of seven piers for waterway tourism in the period 2013-2014, according to the Department of Transport.

 

In addition, construction of four more piers will be kicked off in 2015.

 

State-owned works are expected to complete and be put into operation by June 2014. The Department of Transport will finish documents on berths to be invested by private businesses, this month.

 

Saigontourist Holding Company must implement building and upgrading the works by April 2014.

 

The Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism will develop and promote tourism products in Long Phuoc Island in District 9.

 

According to experts and leaders of travel companies, the municipal authorities can develop short day tours presenting daily activities of local people along canals to international visitors. The local government should also create advantage for enterprises to build their own piers to pick up tourists.

 

HCMC has great potential to develop its waterways but it has very few products to meet the demand for this special tourism and lacks facilities like a fully plan.
