ハノイ 道

The number of Japanese travelers to Vietnam is increasing year by year. It increases about 10% per year.


In 2018, more than 800,000 Japanese visited in Vietnam. Mainly in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh.


Many people go to Da Nang, Nha Trang, Phu Quoc Island.


Unfortunately, the impact of the coronavirus in 2020 will inevitably lead to a significant decrease in tourists, but when it calms down and the borders are released, many traveler will visit Vietnam again.


By the way, how much does it cost to travel to Vietnam ?


1. Flight ticket price to Vietnam

2. Hotel charges in Vietnam

3. Food and travel expenses in Vietnam

4. Optional tour near Hanoi


I will recommend it in four parts as below

In these days, with the spread of LCCs (Low Cost Carriers), it has become much easier to go to Vietnam.


It is no exaggeration to say that LCCs have contributed to the increase in tourists.

Except for the peak season, LCC round-trip flights to Vietnam cost about 20,000 yen to 50,000 yen.


A normal airline costs about 40,000 yen to 70,000 yen.

If you want to save on your travel expenses, you should use LCC.


However, if you use LCC, some rules are different from ordinary airlines, such as being extra charge due to overweight of luggages, having a charge for meals on an airplane and having a small seat. Please take note it.
