How to get there…Emirates now flies direct to Ho Chi Minh city every day at 9.30 am, fight takes about 7 hours or so, you then need to take an internal flight to Hanoi. We took JetStar and booked on line but Emirates Holidays can organize your whole trip including booking your internal flights and transfers. www.emiratesholidays.com
If you need ideas for great places to eat in Hanoi, then leave me a comment and I’ll answer you with details. I can also let you know the best way to apply for visas from Dubai as well. Happy travels !
