Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency such as Orbitz or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using The Platinum Card® from American Express, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.

Flights to Vietnam are on sale with departure cities across the US offering great fares. You can fly from the West Coast to Ho Chi Minh City (SGN) and Hanoi (HAN) for as little as $466 round-trip, while flights from the East Coast start in the upper $500s. Availability is wide-open for flights from September 2018 through March 2019.

To book, head to Google Flights and plug in your desired departure cities and dates. From there, you can book directly with carrier or through an OTA like Orbitz or Expedia.

Vietnam is one of TPG's favorite destinations. It's a country with great cities and incredible natural wonders, like Ha Long Bay. Vietnam recently introduced an e-visa system, making it much easier to get access to the country.
