Today’s top deal brings you far, far away to south east Asia.  Visit fascinating Vietnam and find out everything you need to know about the culture of the land of the Blue Dragon. I found a cheap flight on and paired it with the hotel from so see what the deal looks like:

You will depart from Cork and fly to Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon. From there it’s only a short and cheap taxi ride to the hotel in District 7. You will stay at the 3-star Ibis Saigon South (92% on Tripadvisor) which was awarded with a Certificate of Excellence. It is a very modern hotel, with comfortable rooms and a great looking dining area. Wifi is free in the hotel and accessible everywhere. Children under 2 go for free and kids between 2-11 can also stay for free, however you might need to pay a fee for the bed, but it’s very small. What is great about the hotel, you can use the free shuttle service that takes you to the local attractions like the Reunification Palace or the War Remnants Museum. You will still find many colonial influences in the architecture of the city which is a reminder of past times. Ho Chi Minh City is also a great place for going out at night. Visit the many cafes, bars and restaurants of this vibrant city like e.g. ‘Enigma’, a great wine bar in Camargue. For a fantastic view across the city I would advise you to go up the ‘Rex Hotel’, to their Roof Top Bar. Experience the amazing skyline of this colourful city by night while sipping on a cool Cocktail and chatting to people from all over the world.

But apart from the pulsating Metropolis, you should also make sure to visit the quieter side of Vietnam. Less than two hours away lies Can Gio, a beautiful island with thick mangrove and sand beaches. Rent a car and take drive down there, you will pass amazing scenery. Or visit the many rice fields that shape Vietnam’s landscape. If you’re more looking for nice beaches then that’s also possible around Ho Chi Minh. Ho Coc Beach or Vung Tau is two hours away and are lovely beach resorts where you can relax and enjoy the silence. Ideal for many day trips!
