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 230 kilometres (140 mi) and empties into the Nhà Bè River, which in its turn empties into the East Sea some 20 kilometres (12 mi) northeast of the Mekong Delta.
