Traveling by train can be one of the cheapest ways to travel. When traveling in Vietnam, the traveler has a choice of trips that they can take by train as they do their Asia travel. All trips listed leave out of Hanoi and travel to different destinations throughout Vietnam. One trip leaves Hanoi and travels to Lao Cal with final destination being in Sapa. Another leaves Hanoi and travels through Haiphong with its final destination in Halong Bay and Cat Ba Island. Another train goes from Hanoi through several towns with final destination in Saigon. All of this train has sleeper accommodations for the traveler’s relaxation. Some of these train trips take less time than flying since they do not have to wait in crowded airports waiting for their flights or for their baggage to be unloaded. In fact, when traveling from Hanoi to Hue City, the traveler can leave Hanoi in the evening and arrive in Hue City in the morning refreshed and ready to see the sights.
