Smaller and mid-size ships that can navigate through the Saigon River in Ho Chi Minh City would dock right in the middle of the city at any of these three ports – Lotus, Tien Sa or Navi Oil. Larger ships dock at Phu My, a port on the South China sea, about 68 miles (1.5 hours by car) from Ho Chi Minh City. Phu My is a commercial port, so it’s lacking tourist facilities. There are taxis available just outside the port gates. There aren’t any public transportation links nearby and nothing of interest nearby to walk to. The International Airport of Hi Chi Minh City is 64km away from Phu My or 1.5 hours by car.
