Phu My is the port for Ho Chi Minh City, an hour and a half away (around 80 miles) over a new express way opened in 2014. Actually, HCMC was previously called Saigon - this name is still used by locals and refers to the main district 1. Currently, Phu My is a commercial port with nothing nearby. Cruise vessels dock at container terminal piers at the port. A shuttle is provided to the small Ba Ria town approximately 10 miles to the southeast where tourists can take a taxi to the beach resort city Vung Tau. The best way to get to Ho Chi Minh is either with ship's or a private tour. Taxis wait outside the port gates.
Don't take the fast ferry (hydrofoil) to Saigon because it is old and unreliable. The Vietnam tour guides require passport details in advance in order to arrange port passes. The permit to pick travelers up at the port is compulsory to the company in case tourists want to be legal and safe. Expect to pay $25-30 per person for port fees, even though "unofficial" fees may be less.
Highlights: Reunification Palace, Cu Chi Tunnels, Temples of Bagan
