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 flew Jet Star and it was fine.
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 !
