The second river festival will take place in Ho Chi Minh City from May 31 to June 8, with an art show titled ‘Legendary Voyage’ scheduled as the highlight.

The fest is one of a series of tourism promotion events at home and abroad in 2024, according to the municipal Department of Tourism.

The second edition will be held at Saigon Cruise Port and Hiep Phuoc Port, as well as other tourist venues in the city.

The fest is aimed at introducing the southern metropolis’ river-based tourism products and spurring waterway transport services.

The city is focusing on building distinctive tourism products and services to attract more local and international travelers.

In 2023, the river festival was first organized in the city between August 4 and 6, drawing 51,000 visitors.

The first-ever river festival treated revelers to a slew of art performances and captivating programs at the Saigon Cruise Port, the Bach Dang Wharf Park, and the Binh Dong Wharf, as well as along the banks of Nhieu Loc – Thi Nghe Canal, and in various tourist sites citywide.

The event delighted visitors with ‘Tren Ben Duoi Thuyen’ (At the Wharf, on the Boat) spaces in the Nhieu Loc – Thi Nghe Canal area in District 1 and the Binh Dong Wharf in District 8, along with an outdoor art show titled ‘Saigon – River Tells Stories.’
