 Ho Chi Minh International Airport

Where is Ho Chi Minh Airport?  

Ho Chi Minh City is Vietnam's largest city. Under the name Saigon, it was the capital of the independent republic of South Vietnam until 1975. The city was renamed Hi Chi Minh City in 1976, however Saigon is still widely used by locals and tourists alike.

Modern Ho Chi Minh City is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city. HCMC is particularly famous for its rooftops bars, perched high above the city.

Ho Chi Minh International Airport (IATA: SGN, ICAO: VVTS), officially Ho Chi Minh Tan Son Nhat International Airport, also known as Ho Chi Minh Tan Son Nhat Airport, Ho Chi Minh City Airport, Saigon Airport, or simply Ho Chi Minh Airport, is located in Tan Binh District, about 6 kilometres (4 miles) from central Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The airport's IATA code "SGN" is derived from Saigon, the city's former name. References to HCMC Airport or HCM Airport are informal, as these are not official airport codes.
