Ok sooo there seems to be so many choices to choose from.. how do I choose?
We were going to go with Livitran but then saw another post suggesting King Express.. I have also heard Fanxipan and Tulico is good
What are the differences, if any? Any good/bad experiences on these?
Thanks in advance

The level of amenities varies. It goes from a fruit basket to just a simple bottle of water.
I think King Express is the one giving you the fruit basket. Levitrans being the simple one.
I guess all have in common excessive A/C.
No bad experience to report. We have travelled with Levitrans going to Sapa. Night train are not the most confortable accomodation and the arrival time is LaoCai is quite early so we were a bit tired. Beside it, it was clean (as clean a train can be, of course) and cold.

Very little difference in these private carriages - best to go with the newest. I've been on both Livitrans and King. I hear the Green Train is the newest. It's not that bad - time goes fast on this run, and they're quite clean. No dining car - bring your own food aboard. I suggest you have your Sapa hotel meet the train.
