Travelling by sleeper train through Vietnam's lush countryside makes the journey as much a part of the experience as the destination. Though a little pricey, Vietnam Railways' Violette Express is a classic way to make the transfer more exciting.
Starting from Hanoi, travel south through Hue to Da Nang, or north to Lao Cai. Choose from cosy 4-berth compartments with traditional bunks, or the premium 2-berth with soft beds, then lay back and be rocked to sleep as the land rumbles by.
Leisure: air con, bar, complimentary snacks
Rooms: 2- and 4-berth cabins
