Hanoi to Sapa trains

by frog_duh

Hi all!

need some suggestions regarding train services to Sapa. I'm soooo tempted to book the Victoria Express, but it's waaayyy too expensive.

Anyone with experiences on these trains? I was looking at Royal and Livitrans trains.... are they any good?

thanks!!

Re: Hanoi to Sapa trains

by lightsmileandi

Livitrans is the second one after the Victoria.
You can buy the tickets at any agent such as Sinhcafe or Vietnam Sunrise Travel or Bufalo...

Have a nice trip!

king express is good dont try anything cheaper its not worth it

Re: Hanoi to Sapa trains

by daawgon

I agree with tilnor, King Express is best. Only guests at Victoria Hotel can book the Victoria train, and Livitrans is nothing special (I also took it one way, but liked King Express better). You'll save by buying ticket in country. I paid $25. for King, $30. for Livitrans at Adventure Indochina in Hanoi. Livitrans is supposed to be brand new/deluxe, but I disagree (maybe new in '05?)

Travel Tips for Hanoi

Tam Coc Caves

by zuyao

Located in Ninh Binh province, the Tam Coc caves are known as the inland Ha Long bay. It is 3 hours drive out of Hanoi. At the river docks, you board an open-air sampan which you hire with a rower. The boat ride takes you through a winding waterway which passes through 3 caves (Tam Coc). You must actually duck a bit as the boat does through the caves to avoid scraping the roof. Look out also that you do not hit any of those stalactites or stalagmites!

On the last of these caves, a group of traders on sampans will try to sell you drinks and tit-bits. Some actually ask you to buy a drink or two for the rower only that the rower will not actually drink it, she'll most likely trade it back later on.

The rower will also likely try to sell you embroideries and paintings. Bargain abit, buy some if you fancy. But if they pester you too much, you can actually note down the boat number and lodge a complaint at the tourist police office at the dock. My experience was the rowers are quite nice and they don't create any trouble.

The village at the dock has many stalls selling T-shirts and other kind of hand-made linen. Prices are quite cheap. There are also restaurants and cafes. The specialty here is baked mutton wrapped in rice paper!

Trang Tien Shopping Plaza.

by bcatton about Trang Tien Plaza.

This is Trang Tien Plaza. Located just across from Hoan Kiem Lake (on the south eastern corner), it's one of the more 'flashy' shopping places in Hanoi. There are a number of floors (5 or 6 if i remember correctly). Located on the first floor are watches (quite a few well known brands) and also electronic equipment (cameras, etc) with a supermarket and other places to buy food located on the top floor.
The first floor is quite nice, but i don't think much of the somewhat bland top floor. It's a bit tacky, really.

Low Cost airline

by Animas

Air asia provides flight Bangkok-Hanoi everyday ---price for round trip is 5,100 baht (already included tax surcharge) Booking via the internet and no seat number. Our flight delayed only 30 minutes --- can acceptable :P
On the way back from Hanoi people who got lucky seat won a price from the airline --- one guy in our flight asked to sing a song too LOL

Pho (Vietnamese Beef Noodles)

by victorwkf

If you have not tried the Pho (Vietnamese beef noodle) when you are in Hanoi, then you have not really experienced Hanoi. The Pho is a very famous dish in Vietnam consisting of tasty beef noodles in soup. It is readily sold in many food stores in Hanoi, especially at the Old Quarter area, and the cost is very cheap. In some hotels such as the Melia Hanoi Hotel which I stayed, the breakfast buffet also consist of the Pho. Don't miss this dish when you are at Hanoi and other parts of Vietnam.
