Flights to Vietnam

Find our cheapest flights to Vietnam from Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, and Queenstown.

Astonishing in so many ways, Vietnam is a collision of east and west, old and new.

Vietnam's a dynamically evolving nation. In spite of its traumatic history, the country is rocketing forward, chaotically meshing its rich eastern heritage with western expectations - and somehow it works. With temples between skyscrapers and five star cruises on sacred waters, it's cultural fusion at its most memorable.

Things to do in Vietnam

Whether you're seeking tranquillity, adventure or urban energy, Vietnam delivers it - all with a slice of the country's history. Negotiate Ho Chi Minh City's bustling streets on a scooter, paddle through emerald waters on a kayak, or delve into an underground world by exploring war era tunnel networks. Whatever you do, it won't be boring.

Nothing embodies the country's diversity more than its flavours. From the catch of the day in Halong Bay to Hanoi's famous cold brew coffee, your culinary education will accelerate in Vietnam. And with Hoi An's cooking class options, you might even take a recipe or two home with you.

A morning bike ride through peaceful rice fields will ensure an afternoon at the street markets is all the more exciting.

Western comfort and local custom are both usually easy to find, making travelling as effortless or as testing as you want to make it. You'll be warmly befriended by welcoming locals, as the country's tourism boom drives a growing economy. Expect more than directions; it's not unusual to score a home-cooked meal.

To experience the country from every angle, make variety the theme of your holiday. A morning bike ride through peaceful rice fields will ensure an afternoon at the street markets is all the more exciting.  Or plan a day that combines a self-guided walking tour of historic sites with an indulgent massage treatment at a spa. Mixing it up is a great strategy when you're travelling in a land of contrasts.
