When making your way south , when you book your train , you now will be charged the same price as the locals , but a kind reminder always book a class with a/c any class without a/c is so hot its unbearable , I booked a upper birth hard for 379k for a slow train to Tamky , although our top speed was 40 mph , it did include meals , the next day of the trip . And although it was a 22 hour trip , and there were faster trains i met the true side of Vietnam , not only the people but the countryside as well . As i make my way around central Vietnam , visiting Hue and Hoi Ann as well as My Son and so on , history here is plentiful . Join me as I take on this Journey of a Lifetime.

The faster, newer express is the SE series and the older, slower TN.

There are air-con soft-sleeper (4 in a cabin); air-con hard sleeper (6 in a cabin); standard hard-sleeper (6 in a cabin); air-con soft-seated and non-air-con soft-seated and the good old hard-seat.
