It's definitely not an express train. The journey from Saigon in the south to Hanoi in the north needs some 36 hours. The carriages are rusty, it's loud and comfort is more on the low side. But it's great fun. If you want to go on this trip, you'll find plenty of information at seat61.com/Vietnam.htm

Sam Mountain (Nui Sam, 284m) is a sacred place for Buddhists. The landscape is beautiful and there's a park with giant concrete animals, because travelling plushies also want to have some fun!

All aboard the Reunification Express! Let's take a ride to Hoi An. Thankfully the actual train was a little more modern than this one.

15 000 VND (75 cents australian)  for a can of beer at a restaurant! That's got to be a place worth putting on your itinerary.
