Getting in and out of Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City

If you are flying in to Ho Chi Minh from overseas, it is most likely that you will land in Terminal 2 of Tan Son Nhat International Airport. The cheapest way to get in and out of the airport is by taking the Airport Bus 152 that bus terminal opposite the famous Bến Thành Market.

Once you leave the airport through the Arrival Hall exit, turn right and near the Burger King outlet is the Airport Bus 152.

Public buses in Ho Chi Minh operates on a fixed fare of 5,000 VND regardless of the distance to generate high ridership. Though the fares are low, the quality of the buses are on par with buses in Singapore. For the Airport Bus, if you are carrying a large luggage, you may need to pay an additional 5,000 VND for it. I didn’t have to pay any additional fare with my backpack.

Here’s a tip from me. Try to have exact change or maybe a 10,000 VND note for the bus ride because I only had a 50,000 VND note and the bus conductor gave me 9 of these 5,000 VND coins as change. I later found out that stall operators do not accept these 5,000 VND coins and favor 1,000 VND notes instead. I had a tough time trying to use all the coins by buying drinks from convenience stores.

When you are heading back to Tan Son Nhat International Airport, just take the Airport Bus 152 at the bus terminal opposite the famous Bến Thành Market.

Bear in mind that the journey takes around 60-90 minutes so you may want to arrive at the bus terminal earlier. The bus service starts at 6 a.m. and ends at 7:30 p.m. If you need to get to the airport outside of the bus schedule, a taxi ride costs a little over 100,000 VND and a motorcycle taxi should be much cheaper.
