How do you get to the city centre from the Ho Chi Minh City airport?
Tan Son Nhat International Airport, Ho Chi Minh City, is a short trip away from the city centre and comes with a couple of transport options for reaching downtown. If you make your way outside of the international terminal, you’ll find local buses 49, 109 and 152, all of which travel to the city centre in around 30 minutes to an hour depending on traffic. If you’re travelling with hand luggage only, you can head to the xe om hangout outside the international terminal and catch one to the city centre in around 25 minutes in good traffic. The airport is serviced quite well by local metered taxis, and these will take you to the city centre in around 20-25 minutes in good traffic. We suggest using green or white, red and green taxis. Local taxi apps can also be relied on.
