If you are an Australian citizenship, you need to get a Vietnamese visa that you can obtain from Vietnamese Consulate before hand or just book in advance through kind of Vietnamese government's agent before you fly over approximately a month before then by the time you arrive at the airport someone will do the paperwork for you and what you need to do just pay the fee over there.
Once we cleared all the custom and get our luggage in hand, we headed straight to our lovely hotel. We spoiled ourself abit for this trip by staying at a luxury five star hotel called Sofitel Legend Metropole Hotel Hanoi.
