If you live in Australia and are looking for a culturally rich and exciting holiday spot, consider Vietnam. The country offers diverse experiences, inexpensive hotels and activities, and a welcoming culture. The high conversion rate of the Australian dollar (1 AUD=18,298.46 VND) and number of reasonably priced flights to Vietnam have led to more Aussies traveling there in recent years. Some even say it is the new Thailand, as it offers delicious cuisine and a beautiful seaside landscape for a much lower cost. Before you go, you need a Vietnam visa for Australian Citizens
When you plan your trip, book a flight to one of the international airports in Vietnam. If you aren’t sure which airlines fly from Australia to Vietnam, start your search with Air Asia, Malaysia Airlines, Scoot, Vietnam Airlines, Cathay Dragon, Singapore Airlines, or Jetstar Asia. Most visitors from Australia will fly into Ho Chi Minh City, as it is the southernmost airport option and usually less expensive, but you can get flights into Hanoi and Da Nang as well.
Before getting on a plane, make sure your passport is up to date and you understand what is necessary to get through immigrations. As a citizen of Australia, you are required to get a visa to visit Vietnam. Since 1996, all Australians who come to the country have been able to pick up their visa at a Vietnam international airport.
