Best things to do and see in Vietnam

The three primary international airports in Vietnam are Noi Bai International Airport (HAN) in the nation’s capital Hanoi, Tan Son Nhat International Airport (SGN) in Ho Chi Minh City and Da Nang International Airport (DAD) on the east coast. From Melbourne Airport (MEL), the fastest flights to Ho Chi Minh City take less than 15h with Singapore Airlines, while flights on Cathay Pacific can take up to 22h. Passengers departing from Perth Airport (PER) can travel to Ho Chi Min City in less than 10h and to Hanoi in under 12h. Singapore Airlines flights from Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport (SYD) take under 13h to Hanoi and less than 14h to Ho Chi Min City. There are also flights from Melbourne and Brisbane to Da Nang in less than 15h.

Unfortunately, there are currently no direct flights to Vietnam from Australia. However, you can easily book flights to Vietnam with just one stopover through momondo. Singapore Airlines has flights from Melbourne to Ho Chi Minh City and Da Nang with a stopover at Singapore Changi Airport (SIN). Cathay Pacific offers Vietnam flights with a stopover at Hong Kong International Airport (HKG), while passengers flying with Cebu Pacific change planes at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (MNL) in Manila. If you book a Singapore Airlines flight from Perth to Hanoi or Ho Chi Min City, you will have a stopover in Singapore. Depending on the airline you select, flights from Sydney to Vietnam generally stop in Singapore if you fly Singapore Airlines and in Hong Kong if you fly Cathay Pacific. If you are departing from any of the other cities in Australia, you may be able to save time by taking a domestic flight to Melbourne, Sydney or Perth before flying to Vietnam.

Trains in Vietnam are reliable, reasonably priced and a comfortable way to get around, with a range of classes available, including air-conditioned sleeping berths and private carriages. There is an extensive network of buses in Vietnam, with modern air-conditioned services running along Highway One between the main cities, including Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Dalat. While the seats are generally comfortable, bus travel can be quite slow due to heavy traffic and the many drop-offs along the way. If you want to design your own journey and travel at your own pace, car hire in Vietnam always comes with a driver. Cycling is also a great way to get around Vietnam as the terrain is mostly flat and roads are in good shape. You can purchase a bike in the bigger cities, but if you’re planning a long-distance trip, you may want to bring your own. Visitors to the north of Vietnam shouldn’t miss a boat trip around the islands of Halong Bay, and you can also take day trips along the Mekong Delta. If you’re short on time, air travel in Vietnam is affordable, with plenty of domestic connections between main cities.

If you are an Australian citizen and planning to travel to Vietnam for holiday or business purposes, you will need to obtain a visa before you depart. Tourist visas to Vietnam are valid for 30 to 90 days and can be made online, by post or in person at the nearest Vietnamese Embassy or Consulate in Australia. Requirements include an Australian passport valid for six months and with at least two blank pages, a completed application form, a current photo and the visa fee. The processing time for visas to Vietnam will take only 24h after you've submitted all the documents. If you are applying for a business visa, you will need to provide other supporting documents in your application.
