All aboard the most famous train in Vietnam.

Travel from Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi on one of the most fascinating train journeys on earth. The Reunification Express is a vital lifeline between North and South Vietnam. Whilst aboard you will witness the historical, scenic, cultural and culinary highlights of this marvellous country. This trip is far more than just a rail journey.

The trip begins in Ho Chi Minh City, where you can take part in a walking tour of the city, exploring the Old Post Office, Notre Dame Cathedral, Re-unification Palace, the War Museum and the Ben Thanh Market. Next, whilst in the Mekong Delta, depart Saigon for a Vinh Long boat trip on the mighty Mekong River, boating along canals and visiting floating markets.

The other highlights of the trip include; Nha Trang, a beautiful area with opportunities to scuba dive, or swim in the South China Sea, Hoi An- a picturesque port town, Hue- a city which represents the old Nguyen Emperor regime, and is near Lang Co Beach and Hai Van Pass, the Perfume River, Halong Bay, where you can embark on a boat cruise, and finally back to Hanoi, where you can relax, before spending the last couple of days assisting in the Mai Chau volunteer project. This is a project which is concerned with helping school children by imparting any language skills. It is highly rewarding.
