Train from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh

by Brett-Wallace

My husband and I will be travelling from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh in January by train. We are thinking to stop at last 2-3 times on the way for about 2-3 days each time. Has anyone got any suggestions on places to stop, please?
Thanks
Monika

Re: Train from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh

by daawgon

I took the train a few weeks ago from Hanoi and stopped in Hue and Nha Trang on my way to Dalat (you must see Dalat!) Hue is good for 1 day and Nha Trang is good for 2 or 3. Previous trips I always stopped in Hoi An (Danang station) and I advise you to do likewise for 3 or 4 days. Dalat is good for 3 days - take the Mai Linh Express bus in from Nha Trang. I advise flying down to HCMC from Dalat on Vietnam Airlines (no train on that route).

Re: Train from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh

by daawgon

If you are concerned about comfort and cleanliness on the train at all, I recommend the following:

book the first class, Livitrans (private) service as far south as Danang
book the soft sleeper service between Danang and Nha Trang

it's easier if you go to a travel agent to buy your tickets (yes, you can get them at the station also, but for a few pennies more you get much better service)

for a reason I do not understand, the Livitrans car does not extend beyond Danang
(there is additional private car service between Nha Trang and Saigon)

Travel Tips for Hanoi

Marching of Guards

by victorwkf

When I was exploring the compounds of the famous Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum in December 2006, I was lucky to be able to spot the marching of guards at the mausoleum, probably doing some guard changing ceremony. The compounds of the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and its surroundings are very big and consist of many other attractions such as the Presidential Palace, Botanical Gardens, Ho Chi Minh Stilt House, Ho Chi Minh Meseum, One Pillar Pagoda, Ba Dinh Square etc. I would suggest that if you have the time, you need to spend at least one day to fully visit all the attractions here.

Early morning musical treat

by Tijavi

If you can help it, one of the best times to visit Hoan Kiem Lake is early morning when the surrounding park becomes a venue of tai chi aunts and uncles and other martial arts. But perhaps the biggest treat is the music created by an old man with his bamboo flute.

The entire scene is unbeatable: classic Far Eastern music amidst misty surroundings on a cold winter morning.

After this early morning musical treat, head to one of the many restaurants around the lake or the market for a filling breakfast of crusty croissants and super-delicious, super-sweet Vietnamese coffee.

by pinakiray2003 about Hanoi night market

Hanoi night market is only on Fridays, saturday and sundays. Dont miss this as things are at leats 30eaper here than normal days and normal shops. bargain to your hearts content and u can get everything here from shoes to lacquerware to fashion stuff.
The whole area is closed to traffic from hang dong to don xuan market ....so the crazy moto sare not there !!!

Beer almost for free!

by King_Golo about Bia Hoi

Bia Hoi is the Vietnamese term for draught beer. It can be found nearly everywhere and is supposed to be quite good. I'm not too much of a beer drinker, so I can't tell you for sure. Anyway, all of my friends liked it!
Bia Hoi costs nearly nothing (usually 3000 VND or a little bit more).
Be careful that they don't add ice cubes - they may cause health problems! none

Walk!

by Ewingjr98

Unlike Ho Chi Minh City, walking is a viable alternative to the motorcycles in Hanoi. Many of the sights are in relatively compact areas, and you will see a lot that you would have missed zooming through the streets hanging on for dear life. Some areas, like the Old Quarter, walking is the only way to enjoy the scenery.
