Airports in Vietnam

Vietnam is served by three main international airports: Noi Bai International Airport (HAN) located in Hanoi, Tan Son Nhat International Airport (SGN) in Ho Chi Minh City and Da Nang International Airport (DAD) in Da Nang.
The size of each airport is relatively small and you will easily find your way around the airport without being afraid of getting lost or being late for your flight.
Want to have an easy arrival and transportation to your accommodation? Then ask for a private airport pick-up from one of our locals. Easily ask for a personalized offer to make sure the pick-up suits you perfectly.

Ho Chi Minh City Airport

There are a several option for getting to the city center from the airport:
Public bus
The cheapest and safest way to go to city centre is to take the public city bus #152. Once you exit the terminal, turn right. There is no official bus sign, but you will see the bus waiting on the road opposite of the Burger King. The bus is only available until 18.00 p.m and a ticket costs around 10.000 dongs.

If you decide to take the taxi to the center of Ho Chi Minh City, make sure to hop in a green Mai Linh taxi or white Vinasun taxi. The taxis can be found on the left of the terminal building and a ride to District 1 is approximately between 150,000 and 170,000 dong. Our locals recommend to use the local currency as using USD might be an opportunity to get ripped off.

Hanoi International Airport

If you need a ride from the airport, you have three options:

Public bus
Make your way from the airport to the city center of Hanoi by taking bus 7 or 17. Bus 7 goes to the Kim Ma bus station while bus 17 goes to the Long Bien bus station. After exiting the terminal, turn right to find the bus stop. The price for this 1 hour journey is approximately 5.000 dongs. Busses run every 15-20 minutes from 5am till 10.00 p.m.

The minibuses to Quang Trung in Hanoi city center costs around 32.000 dongs and they leave once they are completely full.


You can decide to let a taxi bring you to the city center for 160.000 VND or 190.000 VND, depending on the car (a Sedan or SUV). The drive from the airport to the city center takes approximately 30 minutes.

The Only Authentic Cu Chi Tunnels Tour With a Local

Viet was a great guide! It was our first day in Vietnam and Viet introduced us to the local food, customs and an unfiltered history of the country. We really enjoyed the tour through the tunnels and this experience came even more alive with the stories Viet told us. Viet was very flexible in adjusting to our needs. Would definitely recommend him as your local guide!

Best of Ho Chi Minh City Private Tour

Hi Anh, Thank you so much for showing us the best of Ho Chi Minh city. Your in-depth knowledge of all the landmarks, local foods and culture was impressive, but much, much more importantly, your warm, genuine and cheerful personality made all the difference. We felt that we were casually walking the streets of Ho Chi Minh with a friend passionate about their home town.

You happily shared with us all aspects of Vietnamese lifestyle, the things that people expect to hear on a tour, but also the things that only a someone with your local knowledge and personal qualities can openly share. It made our tour special and we couldn't have wished for more. You were fantastic.
