HCM CITY — HCM City authorities will launch a new ferry service between Cần Giờ District and Vũng Tàu City in September.

Travel between the two localities by road takes around three-and-a-half hours, but the ferry will take three hours.

The ferry will have a total capacity of 250 passengers, 100 motorcycles and 15 cars or trucks, and make 12 trips in either direction daily.

Tickets are expected to be VNĐ50,000 (US$2.2) per trip.

Cần Giờ is an island district located about 25km southeast of the city. It is famous for fresh seafood and eco-tourist sites that attract visitors on short trips. It is also home to Cần Giờ Mangrove Forest, a world-class biological reserve recognised by UNESCO in 2000. — VNS
