The 78 km route will depart from Bach Dang Wharf in District 1 and travel through Binh Hoa Wharf in BinhThanh District, Tiamo Wharf in Binh Duong province, and Ben Dinh and Ben Duoc Wharfs in Cu Chi District, Ho Chi Minh City.

This is a convenient transport route to reduce the pressure on roads and create a new tourism service for local people and tourists, An noted.

The route will operate three types of high-speed boats with a capacity of 18 passengers, 98 passengers and 150 passengers each.

The 78 km route is estimated to take 120 minutes and cost from VND120,000-VND220,000 per passenger depending on which leg is chosen.
