Riding Vietnam Unification Express
Duration: 12 Days 11 Nights
Trip Code: AV01
Originally named Transindochinois, this is the train which links Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi. Construction commenced in 1899 and was not completed until 1936, but for most of this century the service was out of action due to various wars. In 1975 the re-establishment of the rail link between Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City became a critical project as a symbol of unity for all Vietnamese, hence the name Reunification Express. The train has various classes, but VVT books air-conditioned “soft sleepers”, four-berth, lockable compartments on the train. Each carriage has its own toilet/washroom, but this is not the Orient Express, so bring your own food and refreshments for your journey. For overnights, bring a sheet or sleeping bag liner and you are all set to watch the whole of Vietnam pass by your carriage window.
