Getting there and away

International Airports
There are three international airports, located in South, Central and North Vietnam. 
Tan Son Nhat Airport serves Ho Chi Minh City and is Vietnam’s busiest international air hub. Hanoi’s Noi Bai Airport is the destination of choice for those concentrating on northern Vietnam, while a handful of international flights also serve Danang Airport, a useful gateway to the charms of central Vietnam.
Vietnam Airlines is the state-owned flag carrier, and the majority of flights into and out of Vietnam are joint operations between Vietnam Airlines and foreign airlines. Vietnam Airlines has a modern fleet of Airbuses and Boeings and the level of service on its international flights is starting to catch up with its bigger rivals. 
Vietnam Airlines now offers links from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh to many major cities in South East Asia, Asia, Europe, Australia and America regions.

There are several means of transport in Vietnam for your choice, but the most convenient one for foreign tourists would be taxi if you are in big cities or provinces. This is much more comfortable and quicker than public means of transport for getting around inside a city or province. However, if you are going to small towns or mountainous regions where taxi and public means of transport are rare, “xe om” or motorcycle taxi is your best choice.
