Lady Hau Dinner Cruise on the Saigon River

Cruises & Water Tours

Spend an evening cruising along the serene Saigon River, taking in the city sights from the water aboard a beautifully restored historic rice barge. Admire the view from the open-air decks and enjoy a delicious barbecue meal and buffet of traditional Vietnamese specialties.

After you're picked up from your hotel, head to the Bach Dang pier to step aboard the lovingly restored rice barge Lady Hau, once used to ferry goods around the Mekong Delta. Set off and watch the skyline change as you cruise, snapping photos as the sun goes down and the glittering city lights come up.

Head to the buffet and fill your plate with dishes prepared by an award-winning local chef. Savor flavorful fusion cuisine, Vietnamese plates, and barbecued fish and meat cooked to order as you take in the scenery on the 14-mile (22-km) cruise before you make your way back to shore.
