Hi Nola,

Vietnam Airlines is the only airline that flies from PP to Saigon. It costs around $130 OW. I would recommend that u take the bus as it only takes about 7-8 hours and costs $8-12. I used An Phu Trnsport bus. New, clean and free pick up from Lakeside area of PP (Backpacker area).

Thanks for that. What happened about your luggage with the bus? Did you have to carry it with you or was it in a locked compartment?

Hi,

It was a locked compartment. The only time you have to carry your bags on this trip is when you arrive at the Cambodia-Vietnam border crossing.

An Phu Transport has an office in District 1 of HMC. District 1 is where most of the guesthouses and tour agents are located. You have to buy the ticket in person. I would recommend taking the bus because it is much cheaper than flying. The flight is about $130 OW plus you have to pay a $25 international departure tax from PP/SR Airport.
