Is that easy to take a taxi? How far is from airports into town?
Yes, taxis are everywhere outside the airport but be careful with the meter-taxis. We would recommend that you get Footprint to welcome you at the airport and drive you straight to your pre-arranged hotel, rather than being driven around the town in a taxi. There have been reports on Trip Advisor of fraudulent meters and cheating taxis. Not a great way to start your trip.
Noi Bai Airport (Hanoi) to Hanoi centre is about 40 km and takes about 45 minutes to an hour.
Tan Son Nhat Airport (Saigon) to Saigon centre is only 8 km away but may take up to 45 minutes to get to your hotel because of traffic.
Danang Airport (Danang) is located right at the city centre. It is 30 km away from Hoi An town taking about 40 minutes to get there.
Tip: You might wish to call your Footprint travel consultant if you feel you are being 'driven around the town' by the taxi driver. Keep our number stored in your phone, just in case.
