Train Overview

About Train: Trains between Hanoi & Saigon are sometimes referred to as the Reunification Express by guide books and tourist agencies, although there are now a whole range of trains on this route and no single train officially carries this name.  The line was completed by the French in 1936, and trains linked Hanoi to Saigon until 1954, when Vietnam was divided into north and south and the railway was cut.  The trains resumed on 31 December 1976, unifying the country once more.  You too can easily travel the length of Vietnam using the reunification railway, a travel experience in its own right.  Over the last decade the Hanoi-Saigon train service has steadily improved with more trains & newer rolling stock.  Here are the principal services, there are additional trains at peak times such as the Tet holiday period in late January or February.
