Most visitors fly to Vietnam. The country’s domestic air transport system is good and getting better. The safety record is admirable, while the flights are mostly on time, and well connected to the main tourist destinations. Visitors from the US and Europe usually arrive via Bankok or Hong Kong.
Generally, Vietnamese people are very gracious, polite and generous and will make every effort to make guests feel comfortable. Here are some general advice about things to do and not to do while traveling in Vietnam
Vietnam has tropical weather marked by a monsoon season. It is typically humid and warm, although the weather can vary significantly from one area to another due to the long length of the country which covers several weather zones and the variance in altitudes (in recently there has been often snow in Sapa and Lang Son while it was quite hot in Saigon).
