Vancouver to Ho Chi Minh City or Hanoi, Vietnam - $747 roundtrip including taxes
Vietnam Airlines has dropped the price of some of their flights from Vancouver to Ho Chi Minh City (SGN) and Hanoi (HAN), Vietnam down to $747 CAD roundtrip including taxes.
This is about 34% below the typical price from Vancouver to Vietnam.
The Vancouver - Ho Chi Minh City flights have one stop each way, in Taipei, Taiwan and are close to as fast as Vancouver - Vietnam can be done, with 17 hours of total travel time (including the layover) each way.
The Vancouver - Hanoi flights are the same duration on the way there (1 stop in Taipei) - but on the way back they have an additional stop (in Ho Chi Minh City), which tacks on an extra 6 hours to the trip.
You can also fly into Ho Chi Minh and back home from Hanoi for a total price of just $752 after taxes! Doing this also avoids the extra stop on the way back, so it's fast flights in both directions. I'll show you how to do this below.
This price is available for fares from late September, through October and November, and into early December 2015.
Good time to visit Vietnam?
November and December are good months to visit Vietnam. The later in November the better. October can still be rainy.
