Additional Visitor’s Information:

Weather:
It will be hot outside so please bring light, comfortable clothes, but the air conditioning inside the buildings can get cool! Bring a light jacket/sweater or scarf for those of you who tend to be more “cold blooded”!

Ground Transportation from Tan Son Nhat International Airport: Easy access to taxi transportation is found outside the arrival level of the airport. The most reliable taxi services are VINASUN and MAI LINH. Depending on time of day and traffic, expect a 25+ minute trip from the airport to downtown (District 1) at a cost of approximately 110,000 VND; 40+ minutes to Phu My Hung (District 7), approx. 230,000 VND. Beware of hustlers offering taxi rides when exiting the luggage pick-up and customs area as most are unreliable.

Exchange Rate: USD 1 = VND 21,000 (approximate rate)

Visa:

  • Please organize your visa through your travel agent or the Vietnamese Embassy in your country well in advance. Most tourist visas are valid for single entry only. Participants wishing to re-enter Vietnam must apply for a multiple entry visa.
  • Visa Application for Visa-upon arrival: Please visit the following website: http://www.vietnam-evisa.org/
