"The reunification express." Vietnam Transportation Tip by cachaseiro
Vietnam Transportation: 212 reviews and 180 photos
The reunification express is one of the great train journeys of this world, linking Hanoi and Saigon.
As i am writing this in february 2011 this is stil, a fairly old fashioned train with simple compartments and a very old fashioned dining car, but itīs cheap and the scenery is just the same as if you had taken a luxury train.
And the vietnamese can still afford it, so you have way more locals than tourists on the train.
The journey takes somewhere between 30 and 45 hours depending on what train you take.
The price for a ticket including a sleeper compartment is around 65 US dollars as i am writing now and you should try to reserve at least a couple of days in advance.
I took the train on new years eve as we enterd 2011 and i thought it was a mighty good trip.
