Ca Mau to launch sea route to Kien Giang’s tourist sites

A sea route which links Ca Mau Province and two tourist sites in Kien Giang Province in the Mekong Delta region will be opened in early July.

The Phu Quoc Express Joint Stock Company’s high-speed boats will be run on the route, the first of its kind in Ca Mau.

The boat which can transport 300 passengers can help to save much time for the travel between Ca Mau and Kien Giang. At present, people from Ca Mau Province have to travel for nearly 100 kilometres to Phu Quoc Island.

On Monday, Chairman of Ca Mau Province People’s Committee Nguyen Tien Hai checked a port built recently in Tran Van Thoi District to serve the boat.

From the port, tourists will also be able to more easily reach destinations in Ca Mau such as Thi Tuong Lagoon, U Minh Ha National Park, and Hon Da Bac relic site.

It takes the boat around one and a half hour to run on the route from every Monday to Thursday. The ticket will be VND350,000 (USD15.21) for adults and VND280,000 (USD12.17) for the elderly and children. The VIP ticket is VND610,000 (USD26.52).
