Airfare: Round trip to Ho Chi Minh City from LAX is $798 on Air China

Air China is offering a $798 round-trip airfare from LAX to Ho Chi Minh City that's good until Dec. 9

Air China is offering a round trip from LAX to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, for $798, including all taxes and fees.

That fare is significantly less than recent round-trip tickets to other Asian destinations.

Ho Chi Minh City, the former Saigon, has been influenced by numerous cultures, including French, Cambodian (it was part of the kingdom of Cambodia) and Japanese, who occupied the city during World War II. Saigon, as it was called, was captured by the North Vietnamese in April 1975, and it was renamed soon thereafter. 

The fare is subject to availability, but it is good through Dec. 9. You must stay at least seven days but not more than three months.

Info:  Air China, (800) 882-8122
