Where are the most popular flight destinations in Vietnam?

Da Nang, Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, Phu Quoc and Nha Trang are the most popular flight destinations in Vietnam.

The Southeast Asian country of Vietnam is undergoing a rapid process of change and fast becoming one of the more popular tourist destinations in the region. Despite the war, that ended only a little over 30 years ago, today Vietnam is a country of optimism and hope, burgeoning cities, an improving economy and a plethora of popular tourist attractions, including miles of sandy beaches on the South China Sea, lush jungle, the Mekong Delta and paddy fields. Tourists book flights to Vietnam in increasing numbers for beach or adventure holidays or to spend some time in its lively cities.

Most Vietnam flights arrive in one of its two major cities, Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh. Both cities cater to tourism with many hotels, restaurants, museums and nightclubs, though Ho Chi Minh City is more Westernised and far more hectic. Its street are filled with mopeds and it’s not an unusual to see locals loading their bikes up with boxes, luggage and even livestock and weaving off into the traffic-filled streets. Hanoi, in contrast, is a calm, elegant city, with a tranquil lake at its centre and French colonial architecture. After time in one of the main cities, most travellers head for the beaches, mountains or the caves of Ha Long Bay.

The central highlands are not much different, but winters are cooler with temperatures close to freezing point.

What is good to know if travelling to Vietnam?

  • Hue was capital of Vietnam between 1744 and 1945, when the last emperor abdicated. Located on the northern bank of the beautifully named Perfume River, the Imperial Citadel (Thanh Noi) has ten entrances; each gate has a watchtower on top. There are three ramparts: Capital Citadel, Imperial and Forbidden Citadel. Sadly, much of the interior of the citadel was destroyed during the Tet Offensive in 1968. The Forbidden Purple City was mostly razed, but there are some smaller buildings still standing and restoration work is ongoing.
  • Drive, cycle or hike the more than 1200km (745 miles) of the Ho Chi Minh trail, which extends from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City along battlefields such as Khe Sanh; Ben Hai Bridge; Truong Son National Cemetery (Vietnam’s national war cemetery); and Dak Rong Bridge,the start of Highway 15, leading south to “Hamburger Hill”.
  • Vietnam’s best known national parks are Cuc Phuong (established in 1962); Cat Ba on Cat Ba Island in Halong Bay; and Con Dao National Park on Con Dao Island.
  • Halong Bay: Halong means “where the dragon descends to the sea” in Vietnamese. The bay is composed of nearly 2,000 limestone islands and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Several of the islands are hollow, ie, caves, and two are inhabited – Tuan Chau and Cat Ba – and offer tourist facilities such as hotels, golf course and fishing club.
  • Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) is Vietnam’s largest city, business centre and major port. It was also the capital of the French protectorate of Cochinchina. The French left their mark: wide boulevards, colonial villas, café society and cuisine. Some of the must-sees are the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee (Town Hall), Notre Dame Cathedral; bustling Ben Thanh Market (for souvenirs); Quoc Tu Pagoda; Xa-loi Pagoda; War Remnants Museum and nearby Reunification Palace, complete with NVA tank outside.
