Airports in Vietnam

John F. Kennedy International Airport

Tan Son Nhat International Airport

Tan Son Nhat International services the city of Hanoi and at over 1000 acres, is the largest airport in Vietnam. The airport is located in the Tan Binh District just 6km north of Ho Chi Minh City centre and is easily accessed by minibus and taxi. Spanning two terminals, the airport is Vietnam’s main international port and a hub for Vietnam Airlines.

Da Nang International Airport

Located in Da Nang in central Vietnam, Da Nang International Airport is one of three international gateways into Vietnam. The airport is home to a new terminal building with modern facilities and is located 3km from the city centre. A taxi from the airport to Da Nang central will cost around AU$3.

Noi Bai International Airport

International flights to Hanoi, Vietnam’s capital, disembark at Noi Bai International Airport, located 45km from the city centre. Though smaller than Tan Son Nhat and Da Nang, Noi Bai International Airport still has a capacity of 16 million passengers. Most hotels will offer a shuttle bus service to and from the airport. Alternatively, a taxi from the airport to Hanoi’s city centre will cost around AU$16, while a public bus will cost as little as AU$1. To avoid getting ripped off in a taxi, buy your ticket at the official taxi stand.

Getting from the Airport

In Vietnam, travel by taxi is relatively cheap. Avoid getting ripped off by choosing metered taxis or paying for your fare in advance at the airport’s official taxi stands. At Vietnam’s largest airport, Tan Son Nhat International in Ho Chi Minh City, a 6km taxi ride to the city costs AU$10. Alternatively, mini buses and public buses can cost as little as AU$2 to reach the city.

Helpful Hints on flying to Vietnam

Before you go to Vietnam

Before you go: Australians travelling to Vietnam are required to have a visa. If you are holidaying in the country for less than 30 days, you can apply for a 30 day visa by mail or in person at a Vietnamese embassy. For more details, refer to the embassy.

Before boarding your Vietnam flight, take some time to research and learn about Vietnamese culture. Some cultural conventions to be aware of include saving face, the importance of family and the practice of haggling. Body language is another important aspect of Vietnamese culture. When in public, avoid showing affection such as hugging, pointing with your fingers and standing with your hands on your hips. While it’s not expected, tipping is always welcome in Vietnam so aim tof budget accordingly.

Lastly, it is important to arrange travel insurance before you leave. It may be the last thing on your mind when planning your Vietnam holiday but accidents can happen and medical treatment overseas can be expensive without it. Talk to your Student Flights consultant about what coverage is best suited to you.


What to bring to Vietnam

What to bring: Whether you’re backpacking through the lush hinterland, or simply flopping and dropping on one of the pristine beaches, the type of holiday you have planned will determine what you will need for your Vietnam adventure. However, there are a few essentials that every traveller will need, no matter what their travel style.

Firstly, sunscreen and insect repellent are a must when visiting Vietnam. While there, you’re bound to spend most of your days in the great outdoors so don’t forget to slip, slop, slap and spray on some insect repellent to protect yourself from the local mosquitoes. Though the weather is quite hot and humid, it’s also important to make an effort to cover up and dress respectfully when visiting shrines, temples and pagodas. So in addition to those swim suits and board shorts, be sure to bring some dressier clothes to wear on cultural visits.

Other essentials to pack include a comfortable pair of shoes, a power adaptor (European two prong), waterproof clothes and a backpack for day trips. Before leaving home, convert some of your cash into Vietnamese Dong and bring a credit card or travel money card as well for safe spending.


During your flight to Vietnam

During your flight: Direct flights from Sydney to Ho Chi Minh take 9 hours while flights to Hanoi are approximately 13 to 14 hours long.

To ensure you enjoy your Vietnam flight, most airlines will serve beverages, meals and snacks, as well as provide in-flight movies and other entertainment. Stay hydrated during your flight by avoiding alcohol and drinking plenty of water. Stretching and walking around the plane when possible can boost circulation and help you feel comfortable while on board.
