Full-service Vietnam flights from $485 return

Posted: 22 February 2018 10:30 am

Save $79+ on full-service fares when you choose to fly with Malaysia Airlines.

It's no secret that you can get to Ho Chi Minh City on budget for under $200 return during the best sales but when you want the added luxury of checked luggage, in-flight meals and exceptional service, the price can skyrocket past $500.

Thanks to Malaysia Airlines' latest sale though, you can save a bundle without having to sacrifice on luxury. Prices start from just $485 return and include all the bells and whistles, as well as a stopover in Kuala Lumpur which can be extended so you can see the city en route to Vietnam.

Sample fares include Perth to Ho Chi Minh City from $485, Adelaide to Ho Chi Minh City from $596 and Melbourne to Ho Chi Minh City from $597 return.

There's a range of dates throughout 2018 to book running from April until September. Word to the wise though, May-November is the rainy season so if you'd prefer to stay warm and dry, book flights early in this sale in April or May.

Those looking to head north can also take advantage of this sale with flights to Hanoi starting at $491 return when travelling out of Perth. Again, May-October is the hot, rainy season in this city so pick your dates carefully to avoid a dampened holiday.

Flights can be booked now via Skyscanner. Use its nifty calendar to find dates and prices to suit you and you can nominate in the left sidebar which airline you'd prefer to fly with so you get only the best full-service airlines at the very best prices.

This sale has no end date and is available until seats sell out.

How good are these fares?

You'll likely find better prices with a budget airline, but when it comes to flying on a full-service carrier, these are the cheapest around for the dates available. The next step up on Perth to Ho Chi Minh City routes is $564 return on Malindo Air, otherwise you're looking at flying a combination of budget and full-service airlines if you want to keep costs down.

On the downside, these flights are a little too good to be true as most of them are for travel during the rainy season. If cheap seats are what you like they can save you a pretty penny. For those who prefer their holiday to boast blue clear skies throughout, you might like to aim for April travel or other flights.
