Full description
Option 1 : Bitexco Financial Tower & Dinner on Cruise Start your tour with pick-up at 5:00 PM from your hotel in Ho Chi Minh City. Head to the Saigon Sky Deck, a towering modern glass and metal structure. With nearly 70 floors, this is the tallest building in Ho Chi Minh City, and the third tallest in Vietnam. While the majority of Bitexco Financial Tower is dedicated to business and commercial use, it’s also home to the city’s first heli-pad, a world-class restaurant and an observation deck that offers some of the most impressive views of the city.   Hop aboard the high-speed elevator to the 50th and 52nd floor, where a bar and coffee shop showcase 360-degree spectacular views of city streets, rivers, and Ho Chi Minh architecture. Buy a beverage and relax as you unwind.   At 7:15 PM, transfer to the cruise point for your evening dinner cruise. Aboard the cruise ship, enjoy a traditional Vietnamese set meal while enjoying more breathtaking views of the city. See the glimmering lights on the reflection of the water as you cruise along Saigon River – a fantastic way to end your evening. Option 2 : Water Puppet Show & Dinner on Cruise Meet your English-speaking driver at your hotel at 5:15 PM, and take a motorbike tour of some of Ho Chi Minh's main attractions. Head to the Golden Dragon Water Puppet Theatre at 6:30 PM for an entertaining puppet show, accompanied by live, traditional music. Immerse yourself in a traditional art form closely connected with the spiritual life of the Vietnamese people. Be amazed by the skillful puppeteers who stand behind a screen and control puppets using long bamboo rods and string mechanisms hidden beneath the surface of the pool of water. Be mesmerized as the pool becomes the stage! Next, transfer with your guide to the cruise port, and begin your journey along the Saigon River at 7:45 PM. Admire the views of Ho Chi Minh City by night from your cruise, and dine on tasty, Vietnamese food. The cruise ends at around 9:15 PM, and your driver will then drop you off back at your hotel.

Nice evening

The tourguide come to pick us up on time in the hotel, we traveled to the Bitexco Tower, which is really worth to go, but we had to ask to have more time there to have drink on upper level, since we are there. After we traveled to the ship, and had a really nice dinner, with some music show on board, the view from the river is also worth for it, but the price for this program is completly overprised. I had to reminde the tourguide to get the: "Wet towels and mineral waters" -as in the description.
