Despite the fact that it's the capital airport, it is the largest and only third in terms of passenger service in Vietnam. However, there is a necessary minimum for comfortable sending and waiting passengers of international and domestic flights. There is an official taxi Desk, tourist information (where better to take a free city map and brochures with useful information), reception, hotels, travel agencies, cafes, currency exchange, ATMs and even the office of the Bank where you can exchange traveler's checks. In the international area, of course, a duty-free shop. Note, however, that long wait between flights it is not very well adapted: the seats are hard, do and see nothing. So if you have been here a long transplant, try to prepare for it in advance.
The exchange rate of the currency of Vietnam is quite reasonable, only slightly less than what you can find in the city. For example, one day the exchange rate: at the airport 20 890 Dong per dollar; at the exchange offices in the city 20 900 in jewelry stores in the city 21 150.
In Noi Bai are direct flights from Moscow (Aeroflot and VietnamAirlines), seasonal from Vladivostok. However, prices for direct flights is high, much cheaper to fly here instead. A lot of the flights are performed here from the major cities of Southeast Asia, including fly budget airlines AirAsia and JetStar.
