    True to their nature, many OpenTour operators raise prices so to max their return from these journeys.

    These raised prices continue for a week to 10 days following Tet and can increase a USD$26 HCMC Ha Noi fare by $14-25 (this year).

    To minimise the effect of these charges, instead of buying the complete route only buy to the first or second stops of your journey (HCMC to Da Lat or Mui Ne and possibly Nha Trang) (Ha Noi to Hue or Hoi An) and when the prices return to normal buy tickets for the balance of the journey.

    Remember, rail is recommended for the longer sections Nha Trang >> Da Nang (for Hoi An) and Ha Noi >> Hue.
