Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam to Kaohsiung is an approximately 5.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight, taxi, and train. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Ho Chi Minh City to Kaohsiung due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Ho Chi Minh City in November, things will get a bit cooler in Kaohsiung: highs are around 34°C and lows about 25°C. On the 27th (Tue), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel to Taichung.
