This is our home for the next 31 hours as we travel the length of Vietnam. Should be fun!

Having got used to rail travel around India in AC-1, AC-3, sleeper classes we had got used to and rather enjoyed the long train journeys up to 17 hours in duration. For this longer journey to Hanoi, we decided to spring for the more expensive tickets so that we could get a cabin to ourselves. These individual tickets are still cheaper than a ticket for one hours journey from Swindon to London.

settled in.
