The Saigon River rises near Phum Daugn in south east Cambodia and flows 230 km to the South China Sea, passing through Ho Chi Minh City as it does so.

The river is important to HCMC because it forms part of its water supply, and is also the home of Saigon Port, with a total cargo volume of nearly 40 million metric tons a year.

There are Saigon River boat tours, but you do not have to pay money to enjoy this river. Take a leisurely stroll along the broad boulevard pavement of Ton Duc Thang Avenue on the eastern side of HCMC and you can enjoy the river and the landmark buildings that dot the other side of the road, such as the impressive Majestic Hotel, a legacy of the French colonial era.

Since 2011 there has been a bridge under the river, called the Thiem Tunnel, which is the longest cross-river tunnel in South East Asia.
