    Love this site....

    Anyway, recently spoke to a few people back from travelling who had bought a very cheap train ticket from Hanoi to Saigon and could hop on and off as they chose, is this true and how can i get more info??

    Checked seat61.com for train info and it claims this is not possible

    Hi bliprogers,

    I've not heard of that -- are you sure you're not confusing it with the "Open Tours" minibus system which runs just as you describe?

    I've also taken a look through the Vietnam Railways site and couldn't see any mention of it.

    If you do find out more, please post it here!

    Posted from within Vietnam.

    Somtam's right, you're talking about the "Open Tour" backpackers bus system. Trains are slow, not that cheap and certainly not that flexible.
