  • Speedboats for HCMC - Vung Tau route

    The first double-deck speedboat, Greenlines DP, will take to the Saigon River in November to replace the hydrofoils that previously plied the route between HCMC and the southern coastal city of Vung Tau. With two engines, the new speedboat is more fuel efficient and safer than the old hydrofoils. It can run at 55-60 km/h, taking one hour and 15 minutes to complete the trip. A one-way ticket costs VND250,000 ($11.5). The boat, which cost $1 million, was designed by a Vietnamese engineer under European standards.
