THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE TAKING VIETNAM RAILWAYS

There are many ways of travelling in Vietnam and I decided to take overnight train from Hanoi to Hue then down to Sai Gon through Vietnam Railways. It was really good and I had a comfortable journey. Specially it’s friendlier to my budget and more comfortable than taking long road trips being cramped in a small car or bus.

SOME TIPS WHICH MAY HELP YOU TO HAVE A GOOD JOUNREY ON VIETNAM RAILWAYS
You should eat before getting on your cabin
Don’t drink too much – there is a toilet but it’s not fun to use
You should book the lower bunk if you’re not young enough to climb.
Lock the door when you sleep
You should ask arrival time and have an alarm because there are many stops in between and you may forget.
You should keep your money, phone... carefully
You can charge your phone in your bunk.
You should buy some snacks before getting on because it’s cheaper than on the train
