1. How can I get to Vietnam by air?
Ho Chi Minh City's (Saigon) Tan Son Nhat Airport is Vietnam's busiest international air hub, followed by Hanoi's Noi Bai Airpot. A few international flights also serve Danang. Bangkok has emerged as the principle embarkation point for Vietnam but it's still possible to get direct flights from a number of major Asian cities and a few Australian cities including:
Cheap airlines are limited to Air Asia operated between Hanoi and Bangkok, Hanoi and Kuala Lumpur, Jetstar between Ho Chi Minh City and Sydney, Tiger Airway between Hanoi/ Ho Chi Minh City and Singapore.

NOTE:
It is much more expensive to buy a ticket in Vietnam than your native country. Depending on your country of origin, ask your national carrier - they may have convenient flights for you. You can also consult your local travel agent for routings, fares and availability on flights to Vietnam. Check on the Internet: discount websites and flight search engines may offer some good deals

2. Other means of transportation?
There are currently six border crossings for travellers coming to Vietnam, but more may
open soon.
a. From China: It's become very popular to cross the border at Friendship Pass or Dong Dang, 20km (12mi) north of Lang Son in northeast Vietnam, to get to/from Nanning. There is a twice-weekly international train between Beijing and Hanoi that stops at Friendship Pass. The other popular border crossing with China is at Lao Cai in northwest Vietnam, which lies on the railway line between Hanoi and Kunming in China's Yunnan Province. There's also a seldom used crossing at Mong Cai.

b.From Laos: If you travel from Laos by road via Savannakhet and Sepon, you will get to Vietnam by the Lao Bao (Vietnam) border crossing. This crossing links Laos to central Vietnam (Danang and Dong Ha). If you travel from Vientiane, you will cross Lak Sao before entering Vietnam by Cau Treo border crossing in Ha Tinh Province (Vietnam). Nam Can border crossing connects Nghe An Province (Vietnam) and Xieng Khuang Province (Laos).

 

c.From Cambodia: If you travel from Phnom Penh by speedboat, you will enter Vietnam at Chau Doc, in the Mekong Delta area. If you arrive from Cambodia by road into Ho Chi Minh City, you will enter Vietnam at Moc Bai, which connects Vietnam’s Tay Ninh Province with Cambodia’s Svay Rieng Province.

NOTE:
Each means of transportation has its pros and cons, contact the local transport companies for more information and review them carefully before investing your budget. Also note that if you enter Vietnam by land, you should and must obtain the visa before arrival. Refer to our VISA section below for more information.
