    Flying Vietnam Airlines

    by Tusitala Written Sep 2, 2008

    Many Asian airlines have a rather dodgy reputation. I last flew Vietnam Airlines in 1993, and, yes, I said a few prayers on take-off. I was lucky enough to fly Vietnam Airlines again in 2008 and WOW ... what a difference. On the international leg from Sydney we had a brand spanking new Boeing 777. Spacious, comfortable, and great service from those lovely Vietnamese stewardesses. I also did a couple of domestic flights with Vietnam Airlines which were fine.

    As a travel writer I've flown half a billion kilometres around the world and I would say go on, fly Vietnam airlines if they service your country. It puts you in the right mood for visiting a fantastic country.

    Tigerairways from Hanoi to Singapore

    Flight back from Hanoi to Singapore

    We took Tigerairways (TR309) from Hanoi (HAN) on 28 May 2006 at 18:50 and arrived Singapore (SIN) on the same day at 23:20.

    We paid USD34.58 (USD6.50 for airfare and USD28.08 for taxes & fees) per person on a one-way flight because we flew to Danang and flew back from Singapore.

    Hanoi International Airport

    Hanoi Airport is new and modern, quite a contrast from HCMC's Vietnam War-era airport. The only problem is its location, quite a long drive from the city. Not as many airlines fly into Hanoi as into HCMC, so you may have more trouble getting here. We flew Vietnam airlines from HCMC to Hanoi, then again from Hanoi to Seoul. The hour-long flight sure beats the day-long train trip.

    Be aware of the exit tax when you depart the country!

    Air asia provides flight Bangkok-Hanoi everyday ---price for round trip is 5,100 baht (already included tax surcharge) Booking via the internet and no seat number. Our flight delayed only 30 minutes --- can acceptable :P
    On the way back from Hanoi people who got lucky seat won a price from the airline --- one guy in our flight asked to sing a song too LOL

  • If you're not already in...

    by chris_clyde Updated Aug 24, 2002

    If you're not already in Vietnam, by air is the best bet.
    I like cyclos, and they are environmentally friendly, but motorbike taxis will get you there quickly, and the drivers are surprisingly honest on prices.

    It's a LONG way from San Francisco!

    by guell Updated Dec 30, 2004

    After two transfers in Los Angeles and Seoul, we arrived in Hanoi 20 hours later (a day and a half with the time difference.) We used our United miles and flew on the Korean airlines, Asiana.

    Fortunately for us, we arrived in the evening, and after so many hours in the air, we were ready for some sleep! This allowed us to get up early the next morning with minimal jetlag.
