Into HCMC
No filling up of Immigration Card is required upon arrival at HCMC's Tan Soh Nhat International Airport from Bangkok. We were quite taken aback by it.

Journey to Hotel:
Took a taxi from the Airport to our hotel during evening peak hours and journey took about 45 minutes and cost about 150.000 vietnamese dong (all-in).

Journey to Airport:
Took a taxi from the Hotel to the Airport and it took about 1/2 hour on non-peak hours on Christmas Day (working day in HCMC) and cost about 120.000 vietnamese dong.

Check-In Area:
The size of the check-in area is very small and within a minute or two, you should be able to cover the whole area.

Checking In:
Check in was a breeze as within the Terminal Building was virtually empty at about 12:30pm in the afternoon.

Food Outlet:
There is a food outlet (Confetti) in the public area (which is also the viewing gallery with a view of the check-in counters) that serves both Vietnamese food and international food.

Shops in Transit/Departure Gates:
There are a many of shops after passing immigration checks that sells items mostly in US dollars. These includes duty free wines, local food products, clothing and accessories, etc.

Mode: TO
Type: Airplane

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
