Recently the folks from VietJetAir reached out to me – they are a very young budget airline fleet started in 2011 that recently launched their route from Singapore Changi Airport’s Terminal 3 to where they are based in Ho Chi Minh City.
It got me reminiscing a little bit about my second solo trip to Vietnam back in 2011 – fresh off my Seoul solo sojourn earlier in the year, I journeyed up to Hanoi and explored Halong Bay, Hue and Hoi An on my own in a rather intensive 8-day trip. Vietnam is a pretty easy place to get around and very affordable; I love being able to get cheap and good pho and other street eats!
So far I’ve only visited the Northern and Central bits of Vietnam, the Southern bits have yet to be explored! I’ve heard that Ho Chi Minh is even busier than Hanoi (and nearer too, just over 2 hours from Singapore compared to Hanoi’s 3 hour flight journey), and other places like Mui Ne, Danang and Nha Trang are popular spots that I have not visited yet, so perhaps this might be my chance? (The latter two can also be reached by VietJet Air’s internal flight shuttles, so you won’t have to endure a possible neverending train ride like I did!)
Right now VietJetAir flies from Singapore to Ho Chi Minh city once every day, though there are plans to increase the flight frequency in future. A quick check of prices has a round trip going anywhere from S$150-$250 depending on the dates. Currently the flight times are as follows:
- SIN – SGN: VJ8932 1240pm – 1345pm
- SGN – SIN: VJ8931 0845am – 1140am
And more importantly, the free stuff!
