Plan Your Ho Chi Minh City Holiday

There are countless reasons to travel to Ho Chi Minh City. The city is festooned with reminders of its historic and cultural heritage adjacent to new office blocks and shopping precincts. Ho Chi Minh City has numerous museums and galleries as well as being home to literally hundreds of individual theatres and cinemas.

The weather in Ho Chi Minh City is determined by the dry and wet seasons. The dry season is from December to April and contains the Christmas and Lunar New Year celebrations. We advise booking your tickets to Ho Chi Minh City well in advance if you wish to travel in this peak season. The wet season runs from May to November, but the rains come and go very quickly and key events such as Reunification Day take place in this season.

Flying from Malaysia

You can book flights from Malaysia to many international destinations with Etihad Airways and experience a high quality flight that will always meet your expectations.

Major Airports in Malaysia

International flights depart from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL), located at Sepang, just 60km from the capital city of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur. The passenger terminal contains a hotel and multiple shopping areas. Most of the international flights are handled through the Satellite terminal within the complex, which boasts a gorgeous jungle boardwalk, complete with waterfall and greenery.

Penang International Airport (PEN) serves the city of George Town. Despite being described as one of the busiest airports in the country, travellers will typically find that it is not over crowded.

Airport Transportation in Malaysia

You can take a KLIA Express train to Kuala Lumpur Airport in 28 minutes from Kuala Lumpur. A taxi to Kuala Lumpur airport is another option, but you must pre-purchase a ticket at the Arrival Level. There are also bus lines with routes to the airport.

A bus to Penang Airport takes about 1 hour and it is provided by Rapid Penang through 3 bus routes: 401E, 306, and 102. By taxi, the trip is about 45 minutes.

Interested in Ho Chi Minh City? Consider Almaty

Take one of Etihad Airways’ flights to Almaty and discover a city of fountains and lakes. This city will surprise you with its modern character and natural landscapes that are so beautiful that they take your breath away.

Plan Your Almaty Holiday

Travel to Almaty and discover a world that for a long time remained hidden from the European traveller. In the Tengri Umai Gallery you'll find an amazing selection of Soviet and local artists’ work, in the Central State Museum you will learn the history of Kazakhstan, and in the exclusive Arasan Baths you will be able to balance your mind and body through either Turkish, Finnish, or Russian methods.

If you purchase tickets to Almaty during the summer, you can explore the stunning Trans-Ili Alatau on horseback and refresh yourself in Alpine Lakes. If you take advantage of the off-peak season flight deals to Almaty, you can see these same areas under a beautiful blanket of snow and also enjoy winter sports. As this country has not yet been exposed to international tourism, it will be relatively easy to find cheap hotels in Almaty, except in the month of September, which is the busiest month of the year.
