Hanoi is the capital of Vietnam, located in the central part of the country. We flew from Phuket to Hanoi on Thai Air and then Vietnam air and had a lovely experience. Fun fact, Thai air serves these delicious calzone-like treats instead of the boring airplane pretzels!
Phuket is a Thai island in the Andaman Sea. You can get to Phuket many different ways but coming from the USA, we found the direct flight from Fort Lauderdale, FL to be the easiest. When you land at the airport, Paresa Resort has a private wifi-enabled car and driver waiting for you.
