HCM CITY — GreenlinesDP, which operates hydrofoils between HCM City and Vũng Tàu, is set to add services to Cần Giờ from the two cities from December 23.
There will be four trips either way between downtown HCM City and Cần Giờ District and eight trips either way between Cần Giờ and Vũng Tàu.
They will operate from Bạch Đằng Wharf in District 1 – rather than Nhà Rồng Pier in District 4, from where Greenlines operates its hydrofoils to Vũng Tàu -- and Thạnh An Wharf in Cần Giờ.
In Vũng Tàu, the hydrofoils will continue to berth at Hồ Mây Wharf.
Cần Giờ residents and officials are entitled to a 50 per cent discount, while it is free for disabled people.
The company plans to operate boats with 50, 96 and 136 seats. — VNS
