TRAIN  IN VIETNAM

Vietnam Train - www.luxuryprivatetravel.com

The Vietnamese railways are an excellent, safe and comfortable way of getting around and seeing Vietnam at ground level. The main line links Hanoi, Hué, Danang, Nha Trang, and Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City).  There is also a railway between Hanoi and Haiphong.  

In case you were wondering, 'Ho Chi Minh City' is the name of the whole conurbation - 'Saigon' is still the name of the city itself, and it is 'Saigon' which appears in the railway timetables and on the station nameboards... 

Trains from Hanoi to Saigon passes through the lush green hills between Hué and Danang.  This is the most scenic section of line, running along the coast past bays and islands and through the hills.  The train travels at low speed up the fierce gradients, with an assisting locomotive at the rear and people sitting on the roof..!
