The Saigon River (Vietnamese: Sông Sài Gòn) is a river located in southern Vietnam that rises near Phum Daung in southeastern Cambodia, flows south and south-southeast for about 225 kilometres (140 mi) and empties into the Soài Rạp, which in its turn empties into the East Sea some 20 kilometres (12 mi) northeast of the Mekong Delta.
The Saigon River is joined 29 kilometres (18 mi) northeast of Ho Chi Minh City (formerly named Saigon) by the Đồng Nai river, and just above Ho Chi Minh City it is joined by the Bến Cát River. Saigon River is important to Ho Chi Minh City as it is the main water supply as well as the host of Saigon Port, which a total cargo volume loaded and outloaded of more than 35 million metric tons in 2006.
