SGN-HUI


The best option is to fly direct if you can. Hue airport is some 30 minutes outside of Hue. A taxis fare from the airport to the venue costs about 250,000 VnD, and a rank of taxes is available directly outside the airport.

 

Flights to Da Nang

With so many delegates attending the conference, it is possible that you will have difficulty in getting a direct flight to Hue. If so, then please take a flight to Da Nang. Da Nang is a popular tourist spot, about 2 hrs drive from Hue. Numerous airlines fly regular schedules into Da Nang throughout the day from various airports, and there are international connections to Da Nang from places such as Bangkok.

The IPPA Secretariat will organize a shuttle from Da Nang to the venue at Hue. The buses will run from Da Nang on the 22nd and 23rd September. We will organize buses from the airport at 12pm for those that arrive in the morning, and at 6pm in the evening for those arriving in the afternoon. 

The return buses will leave early morning on the 29th September for Da Nang (time to be decided). If there is sufficient demand, the bus schedule might extend to the 21st and 30th September.

If you need/would like to get the shuttle bus from Da Nang to Hue please provide the IPPA Secretariat with your flight details to and from Da Nang, and the bus (noon or evening) you would like to travel on. We will keep an eye on the flights, and if necessary hold the bus for delayed flights if they are inbound.

You may also contact directly Ms. Le Thi Thanh Binh and send your information via her email: Haute02@gmail.com
