Reasons to travel Vietnam by train
10 reasons below
will probably persuade you to travel by train in Vietnam
Maybe you will think that "how long will it take if you take a train
trip", But the truth is there are many advantages to travel by
train. We would like to introduce to you 10 reasons to travel by
train. Try if they can persuade you or not!
1. Low cost
Compared with the plane, travel by train much cheaper. Especially
if you go long distances the price difference is more evident. The
same departure and destination but the train has to cover a longer
route than the aircraft, but in exchange traveler can enjoy the
pleasure of viewing beautiful scenes change from one region to
another. Furthermore, going by train you can have discount for
children, students, and group tickets...
2 Stability of prices
People who regularly fly will understand the complexity of the fare
structure of this mode of transport. Meanwhile, train fare tends to
be stable from time to time, whether you start the trip in the day
time or in the evening only one train ticket price.
But at some points fares are increased such as Tet holiday, but the
difference is not much and tend to return to the old prices when
holiday is over. So can say that train fare is pretty stable.
3 Bring more luggage
This is especially useful if you are traveling for long time and
carrying much luggage, as well as bring souvenirs to your family.
If Travelling by train, you are allowed to bring up to 20 kg of
luggage, while the airlines allow passengers to bring maximum 7kg
for economy class and 14kg for business class.
Rail transport is pretty safe. Train runs on it's own railways and
the risk of collisions with other vehicles is almost none. So you
can have peace in mind that I will go and return in safety, not
worry about the increasing accidents like happening to cars and
aircrafts. Traveling by train is relatively safe
If traveling by plane, you will have to come 2 hours ahead of
flight time, perform complicated procedures to check in your
baggage, in some cases you have to open the bags to prove that they
do not contain prohibited goods. Travel in Vietnam by train, you
just need to come to train station 15-30 minute before departure
time, no waiting and no need to check luggage !
6. Environmentally friendly
Compared with automobiles or aircraft, trains emit much less
exhaust fumes. Carbon emissions in the journey does not cause direct
impacts to the atmosphere on high, so less toxic compared with
emissions of aircraft.

areas or city center, so you won't feel lost when you are in a
strange place . More importantly, take the bus or taxi to your
hotel is cheaper than going from the airport .
8. Comfort and ease
Instead of having to take the seat on the plane or swaying along on
a bus, you can relax in comfort on board the train. You will have
more room to stretch your legs, you can also go back and forth in
the carriage for some excercise and enjoy spacious atmostphere.
9. The classic attractions
For passengers who are nostalgic and romantic, travel by train will
be particularly interesting . But the era of ceramics and four-wheel
chariot was over but on the night train, you can still see the
images of trolley loaded with food ready to serve . During the day,
you can play with all the other passengers, reading, sightseeing
outside open door. Not any kind of transport can also bring you such
10 . Not only is transport
Each train itself and its route has also been a tour. the longer
your trip is the more experience and discovery you will have about
the atmosphere and scene of a land. The average velocity of the
train will become an advantage when the trains pass through scenic
areas, the sun- dried sand slopes, the winding pass over the
mountains above green sea ... You 'll feel incredibly at ease!
