How to book cheap tickets from Ho Chi Minh to Hanoi 

Some experiences of hunting cheap tickets that BestPrice could be summarized below:

  • During the peak tourist season (May - June or September - October), public holidays (April 30, May 1, September 2,...), or New Year's Day, and Lunar New Year schedule,... airfares may tend to rise so to meet the demand of a large number of passengers. Therefore, if you plan to travel during these times, you should arrange to buy tickets early 1-3 months before the flight date.
  • September - November is the low season when Hanoi is in the rainy or cold season, so the number of tourists decreases, leading to a drop in ticket prices. Airlines also often launch incentives to stimulate demand for this season, so it is a good opportunity for you to hunt for cheap tickets from Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi.
