Did you mean flights from Ho Chi Minh City to Bangkok?

Energetic and colorful, the city formerly known as Saigon, is the nation’s cultural core. Ho Chi Minh City, located in southern Vietnam, is full of movement and people, with new experiences around every corner. In many streets, modern world skyscrapers compete for space with distinguish-looking colonial homes, while street markets, swanky shopping malls, and welcoming restaurants add to the buzz. Ancient pagodas in the Taoist tradition, like the Jade Emperor, stand guard close to the rose-hued Notre Dame Cathedral, a French-built church with lovely gardens. A great way to soak up the diverse atmosphere is on a cycle tour and there are plenty of places to rent a bike.
