How to get there
From the centre of Ho Chi Minh city head northwest along Nam Ky Khoi Nghia road, bearing right on to Truong Son, which leads directly to the airport entrance.
Bus 152 runs from the airport to the city centre, terminating at Ben Thanh Market. The fare is about VND5,000, but an additional charge is made for large items of luggage. Some hotels will arrange pick-ups from the airport for a fee.
Beware of touts and unofficial taxis. It is generally recommended to use cabs operated by Mai Linh (www.mailinh.vn – Vietnamese only) or Vinasun (www.vinasuntaxi.com), but bear in mind that English is unlikely to be understood by the driver. Journey time into the central area is 20 to 30 minutes depending on traffic, and the fare starts at about VND180,000-200,000. There is a Mai Linh taxi desk inside the terminal’s Arrivals area.
Long-term and short-term parking is located immediately opposite the airport entrance.
