King Express

On board (Sapa train)

Sprinting through the lush green countryside of northern Vietnam, the King Express whisks passengers between Hanoi and Lao Cai. Compact carriages offer 2 to 4-berth accommodation with a touch of classic 'golden age' style.

Setting off at around 10pm, and arriving in the early hours the following morning, the 8-hour journey passes quickly as passengers fall asleep in their cosy cabins to the rumble of the rails. An exciting and efficient way to travel.

Leisure: air conditioning, complimentary drinks & snacks

Rooms: 25 cabins
