Visitors planning a trip to Vietnam can get there by three modes: flights, land, and boat. Most international travellers will arrive by air, and may have to book connecting flights rather than direct flights to Vietnam from their respective home cities. Visitors from neighbouring countries such as Cambodia, Laos, and China can travel by either bus or train. Visitors interested in a scenic tour can book a boat trip from Cambodia. Vietnam visas are available on arrival, however you choose to enter the country with a visa.

As you plan your safari trip, ensure that you book a safari package that includes local transportation to help get around in Vietnam.
