Me & a friend are heading from hanoi to Saigon by motorbike over 16 days.we are hoping to get a night train from ninh binh to dong hoi to do phong nha-ke bang national park & get another night train from hoi an to nha trang.we are really hoping to take the bikes on the trains with us as we won't have time to wait for our bikes to come on another train.anyone with any information on trains that allows this is much appreciated.thanks

Does the train need to have a cargo carriage?how early would we have to be at the station to do this?we can't speak any Vietnamese but would hand gestures & maybe basic vietnamese words explaining what we want work?if not then where could we meet someone that could help translate what we are trying to do?the se5 leaves ninh binh at 18:06.we really want this train.can we take our bikes on this one?thanks very much for your help
