The first thing people think about when travelling to Phu Quoc is flying there and how to buy a plane ticket with reasonable prices? Why should not we go by car? Because travelling by plane saves a lot of time and money. It takes only 45 minutes to fly from Ho Chi Minh City (150 minutes if you fly from Hanoi) then you’ll land at Ngoc Island.

In the past, the price of a plane ticket is quite expensive (a round trip cost about 3.2 million dong to 4 million dong without an extra fee). However, in early 2013 Phu Quoc inaugurated an international airport so many airline companies established airlines from Ho Chi Minh to Phu Quoc with a very cheap price that you can save 1.6 million dong or even more.
