We booked VIP but the carriage was old and looked nothing like the pictures the ride was bumpy, we hardly got any sleep from a constant banging noise under the train .
To be honest we have travelled by train from HCMC to Nha Trang...More
We made our train trip from Hanoi to Sapa last year with this train and it was a comfortable ride! The train is not luxurious but nice and cozy! The beds are comfortable and we had good sleep on train! The cabin is clean and...More
Don’t be conned thinking you have booked a bargain because of the low costs in Vietnam. It’s cheap because it’s fake! The cabins are cramped, the toilets stink and there’s nothing deluxe about it. Sa Pa is great as was the trekking but avoid this...More
