HCM City – Côn Đảo express boat service to be suspended

Several factors have hindered from choosing the service such as the long distance, over 20km, between the city’s centre and the Sài Gòn-Hiệp Phước port in the outlying district of Nhà Bè, where the boat departs; passengers having to pay fees to enter the port; and weather conditions, among others, the company said.

HCM CITY — The HCM City – Côn Đảo express boat service will be temporarily suspended from July 29 due to inefficient operation, just over two months since launch.

The service was launched in mid-May, 2024, connecting the southern metropolis with Con Dao island off Bà Rịa-Vũng Tàu Province.

However, several factors have hindered passengers from choosing the service such as the long distance, over 20km, between the city’s centre and the Sài Gòn-Hiệp Phước port in the outlying district of Nhà Bè, where the boat departs; passengers having to pay fees to enter the port; and weather conditions, among others, the company said.

The operator offered a free shuttle bus service from the September 23 Park in HCM City’s District 1 to the port for passengers booking in advance. However, some problems occurred and it decided to suspend the service from early June but later resumed the operation.

The high-speed boat, named Thăng Long, seats 1,017 passengers. Ticket prices ranged between VNĐ615,000-1.1 million (US$26-43) per trip.

There were three trips departing each port weekly. The boat departed from Sài Gòn – Hiệp Phước Port for Côn Đảo at 7:00am, and from Bến Đầm Wharf of Côn Đảo for HCM City at 1:00pm. — VNS
