If you’re looking for cheap flights to Vietnam’s beautiful capital, Hanoi, look no further than Globehunters, where we have a great range of fares on a number of routes from Australia, including business and first class fares.
The ancient city of Hanoi has long been known as a cultural centre for Southeast Asia, particularly for its architecture, some of which has stood for hundreds of years, with a mixture of French-colonial, Southeast Asian and Chinese influences.
With over 600 temples to explore, it’s a very spiritual place, with a much calmer vibe than neighbouring Ho Chi Minh City.
The city is based around a lake, with a bustling Old Quarter, but it’s increasingly becoming a much more modern city, with more tourists and businesspeople flocking there to explore the city and its surrounding areas too, such as Ha Long Bay.
You’ll be sure to come across some interesting street food during your time in Hanoi, but try not to be put off by appearances or descriptions and give some of it a try, as you could uncover some real treats.
So if you’re interested in visiting Hanoi, be sure to check out our full range of cheap Australia to Hanoi fares.

If you’re flying from Australia to Vietnam, here’s everything you’ll need to know, including flight times and entry requirements.
Currently, Sydney is the only Australian airport offering direct flights to Hanoi, which take about ten hours.
If you have to catch an indirect flight from a different airport, this will take around 11 to 13 hours, depending on the stopovers that you’ll be making.
Australian citizens travelling to Vietnam will require a visa, so you should either apply for this before travelling (head to this site for more information) or obtain an official approval letter to get a visa on arrival.
Some tour companies will arrange your visa for you, but if they don’t be sure not to get scammed by the fake visa sites which exist!
If you do choose to go for the visa on arrival, do bear in mind you may have to wait in a long queue upon arrival in Hanoi.
Currently, Vietnam Airlines is the only airline offering direct flights to Hanoi (from Sydney), although these are some of those which offer indirect services:
- Malaysia Airlines
- Singapore Airlines
- Virgin Australia
Hanoi’s airport is located in the Phu Minh Commune in the Sóc Son district, about 21 miles northeast of downtown Hanoi, via the new Nh?t Tân Bridge.
There are airport minibuses and metered taxis available outside the airport, but do make sure that the taxi driver is wearing an official name badge and turns the meter on.
There’s also a bus service which takes around an hour to the city centre.
