help me pls ! what is the best way to move from hanoi to hcmc ? Thinking about bus or train ? What is the travel time for each? Where to buy bus or train tickets and much?
The train is just not up to Western standard, it's overly long (1.5 days) and boring, and not especially clean. The sleeper buses are downright dangerous. The best way to go is by air.
If you like the train: https://vietnam-railway.com/train/route/train-from-hanoi-to-ho-chi-minh-city The railway from Hanoi station to Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) station is 1726 Kilometers. There are 4 trains including SE1, SE3, SE5 and SE7 (which belong to Reunification Express train) on this route. They depart every day and lost about 34 hours (From Hanoi to Saigon). The types of seats include the hard seat, the soft seat, the hard berth (6 berths) and the soft berth (4 berths), called cabin. Each of the cabin is designed with the air-conditioner and the comfortable seat.It's a long way by train... but if you like to have the cabin you'll have to pay a little bit more and you have your own bed.
Fly for fastest.
