A trip to Vietnam isn’t complete unless you pay a visit to Ho Chi Minh City, the largest city in the country. The place formerly known as Saigon is bursting with old traditions, new ideas and a food scene you’ve got to see to believe. We’ll just come out and say it: pho may be the greatest dish ever invented on earth. Check out Wotif’s deals on cheap flights to Ho Chi Minh City and spend those extra dongs you saved on anything you want.
Using the public transport in this city is an adventure unto itself, but hey, there is no point in taking a holiday if you’re not going to be adventurous. Once your flight to Ho Chi Minh City lands at Tan Son Nhat International Airport (SGN), take a cab to any of Wotif’s hotels in Ho Chi Minh City. When you’re ready to wander about the city, get a ride on a cyclo. It’s like a tricycle, except the two wheels are in front where the passenger basket is. It looks pretty neat, if we do say so ourselves (and we do).
Beneath the streets of the Cu Chi District are the tunnels of Cu Chi, a network of mazes used during the Vietnam War. These things are insane! Follow your tour guide through camouflaged trapdoors and explore every inch of the system. You can even enjoy lunch in one of the old command bunkers.
If you’re on one of the flights to Ho Chi Minh City that touches down in the evening, head straight for Pham Ngu Lao Street. Get your fix on awesome street food and wash it down with snake wine.
Are you still hungry? If you’re a foodie and you’re staying in District 10, then you’ve hit the jackpot. Street food vendors line the avenues as far as the eye can see. Well, not that far, but trust us when we say there are a lot of them. Get a steaming bowl of pho and top it off with a 20cm banh mi sandwich. You could only eat these for the rest of our lives and all would be well.
Enough is enough already. Finish up with work. Finish up with everything and take that getaway you’ve been thinking about. Browse our phenomenal offers on Ho Chi Minh packages and save big bucks when you bundle a hotel and flight together.

Looking at flight demand on Wotif in 2020, we found that flights purchased on a Thursday had the lowest airfares on average. Booking your plane ticket on a Sunday also seems to score pretty good deals.

Trying to figure out how early you should book your flight? It’s possible to start comparing international airfares on Wotif up to 12 months in advance. However, it does depend on the carrier as not all airlines release their prices that far out.
