Getting there and getting around Northern Vietnam

Northern Vietnam has two international airports, Hanoi and Da Nang. Hanoi’s Noi Bai International Airport is the main gateway, offering service to most major Asian cities, including Hong Kong, Bangkok and Tokyo, but no direct service to the U.S. The airport is located 30 kilometers north of the city center and is best accessed by taxi. Many Hanoi hotels will arrange airport pickup or dropoff for you.
