Best Time to Book a Flight to Hue Airport

The best time to plan a trip to Hue is between February and May. During these months, the weather is warm to hot and rainfall is generally minimal. If you're lucky, your visit may also fall during the Hue Festival, a biennial arts and culture festival usually held in April or May.

If you visit the city in June or July, you'll be greeted with ample sunshine but uncomfortably hot daytime temperatures. August to January is Hue's wet season. Tourists generally avoid these months as the heavy rainfall impedes outdoor activities. However, you can usually find the cheapest flights to Hue during this season.

Arriving at Hue Airport

Hue Airport is located about 15 km from downtown Hue, or about a half hour away by car. All domestic and international flights arrive at the airport's one passenger terminal, a two-floor structure open 24 hours a day. The cheapest travel option at Hue Airport is the airport bus, which picks up directly at the airport and drops off at various spots in the city. A one-way bus ride costs about $2 CAD.

Standard taxis and motorcycle taxis are also available just outside of the terminal. To get to downtown Hue by taxi will cost about $14 CAD. Motorcycle taxis cost about half as much but are not a good option for those with a lot of luggage or those travelling in a group.

There is also a tourism service counter providing information about Hue city and Vietnam's major tourist attractions.

The second floor houses additional shops and fast food locations as well as various souvenir stands. There is also a business centre available for business travellers. If you're waiting for a connecting flight and want some added comfort, quiet V.I.P. areas are available on both floors of the terminal for a small fee.

What to See and Do in Hue

After you've booked a cheap flight to Hue Airport, you'll want to book a sightseeing tour of the city. These guided tours are the best way to see and learn about all of the city's most popular sights, like the Tomb of Minh Mang and the Hue Royal Palace. While most tours are on foot or by bus, you can also switch it up by taking a motorcycle tour.

Though most of the city's must-see attractions are beautiful and historic buildings, there is also ample natural beauty to behold. You can walk along the edge of the tranquil and picturesque Perfume River via pedestrian walkways, or ride across in a dragon boat. Bach Ma National Park is another popular outdoor spot, complete with nature trails, lakes, mountains, and even stunning waterfalls.
