Why It's a Deal A recent Kayak search shows the lowest multicity round-trip airfare between San Francisco, Hanoi, and Ho Chi Minh City starts from $1,032 in early April (Asiana Airlines). Add to that $162 per person with taxes for two nights at the Sheraton Hanoi Hotel, $176 per person without taxes for one night onboard the Pelican Luxury Cruise, $266 per person with taxes for two nights at the Golden Sand Resort & Spa, and $219 per person with taxes for two nights at the Renaissance Riverside Hotel Saigon, and you're already spending $1,855 on airfare and accommodations alone. For $156 less, this travel package gives you all the same perks, plus an extensive sightseeing program including entrance fees and the services of English-speaking guides, all transfers and transportation within the country, most meals, and covers all taxes and fees.
