●    SPECIAL SPECIAL TIP !!!!!!!!!!

●    Flight Cost
If you are going on a low budget, this would be most likely the most expensive part of your trip, If you want a low-priced ticket, I would advise you book your flight before the On-Peak Seasons which might cost as low as 700$.

Special Tip: the cheapest city to fly into is
Ho Chi Minh City, and also do not forget to check Hanoi, you just might be lucky to find a cheap option too.

●    Transportation within Vietnam
This is section is dedicated to making sure moving around in Vietnam is hassle-free and also cost-effective.

You can decide to move via buses, trains or domestic flights depending on how much you are willing to spend.

●    Buses
This is by far the cheapest means of transportation in Vietnam, which can be quite uncomfortable except if you're making use of a bus ticket which can cover your trip for as long as you want.

I would strongly advise you contact a travel agent to help in sorting your bus tickets so as to make movement easy and cost-effective.

In general, Bus tickets may cost as little as 30,000 dongs per hour of travel. There’s also the premium bust tickets which much more comfortable than the regular bus tickets.

It would cost between 150,000 to 500,000 dong to travel for a 7 to 10-hour trip which is quite low priced.

●    Trains
This is also another cheap means of transportation, but it’s quite rough and offers peace, quiet and comfort unlike the hustle and bustle associated with transporting yourself via a bus.

If you plan on doing overnight trips, then boarding a train would be the best option, as you get to relax and sleep comfortably for a token.

The pricing range for Trains is almost the same as that of the bus transportation system, but there’s immense value for money when it comes to overnight trips boarding a train.

●    Domestic Flights
This is the granddaddy of comfortable transportation within Vietnam. Domestic flights are available in Major cities like Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh city.

VietJet and Jetstar are airlines that offer low-cost air transport within Vietnam, the cost can vary based on early bookings and season at which you are traveling.

An estimated price of about 700,000 dongs would be required per trip to fly within major cities in Vietnam.
