Previously, the reception and organization of our tours and routes did not meet this actual demand, so the rate of tourists traveling by boat to shore was very small.

There are only a few areas with works, including a marine park along Quang Trung Street, from the current tourist pier to Ba Ku Street, the widest part of the park is only about 60m.
