You can get a great view from the hilltop with abandoned bunkers or Thien Mu Pagoda. If u catch a cruise/ferry along the river, you get to see lots of cool old boats going along it that look like they're sinking lol!

Tip: in the boat they pretend that they are offering you fresh drinks but in fact they are selling it for 4 times of the price.
When we researched about the tours they tried to impress us with the Dragon boat. It's just a (crappy) very slow boat that takes more or less 45 minutes from the Pagoda to the city center. The views are not amazing. Just ok.

Very picturesque. Nice to watch the boats go down the river. The bridges are very pretty at night and the lights change color. It is not easy to walk along the river though during the day or at night because of the throngs of people.

We took a 30 or 40 minute boat ride on the river, and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. I could have done without the sales lady on board but, other than that, I recommend this trip.

Calm and beautiful river. Chose the spot in one of the cafes on its banks (preferably - closer to Phu Xuan Bridge; there's more places for locals there) and enjoy the views!
