They can also travel by taxi, but should either agree on a fare before getting in the taxi or ask the driver to turn on the meter.

Terminal Information for Tan Son Nhat International Airport

Tan Son Nhat International is Vietnam's busiest airport. Passengers arriving from Hanoi disembark from the aircraft at Terminal 1, which is the airport's domestic terminal. The airport is just six km north of Ho Chi Minh City's centre, which is known as District 1. The airport has just one runway, which means passengers should expect delays upon landing, as traffic congestion is frequent and expected. The 152 airport bus route takes travellers from Tan Son Nhat Airport into the city centre. Buses are air-conditioned, safe, and cheap. The last bus departs from the airport at approximately 6:15 p.m. Passengers arriving after 6 p.m. should go to the taxi rank where a company named Sasco handles taxi operations from the airport to various parts of Ho Chi Minh City.

What You Need to Know

The one exception is travellers who aren't from Vietnam but who live in the country and have a Vietnamese driving license. Passengers should arrive at Noi Bai Airport no later than 90 minutes before departure. Given the distance between Hanoi's city centre and the airport, this might mean an early start for the earliest flights.
