According to The Travel magazine of Canada, the Thong Nhat (Reunification) Express, commonly known as the North-South railway line, has been ranked as one of the top 10 greatest sleeper train excursions in the world.
According to an article published in a magazine from Canada, travelers consider Vietnam to be one of the most popular countries in Southeast Asia to visit. According to The Travel, using a sleeper train is a wonderful alternative to riding a motorcycle from the northern capital city of Hanoi to the southern city of Ho Chi Minh because of the length and narrowness of the country.
It is mentioned that using the sleeper train is the most economical option for tourists on a budget because the trip, which may last between 32 and 37 hours, only costs approximately US$46 on average.
In addition to this, the publication says that customers have the ability to select from a number of different seat classes based on the amount of money they are ready to spend on a ticket. These include the third class, which has uncomfortable wooden seats; the second class, which has plush seats and access to an air conditioner; the second class sleeper car, which has six beds per compartment and an air conditioner; and the first class sleeper car, which has four beds per compartment and an air conditioner.
The round train trip from Paris to Venice aboard the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, a trip from Zambia to Tanzania aboard the TAZARA Railway, a trip from London to Scotland aboard the Caledonian Sleeper, and a trip from Moscow to Beijing aboard the Trans-Siberian Railway round out the list of the top 10 best sleeper train journeys. This is in addition to the Maharajas’ Express, which travels from Delhi to Mumbai in India, the Blue Train, which travels from Pretoria to Cape Town in South Africa, the Oslo to Bergen train in Norway, the Bangkok to Chiang Mai train in Thailand, and the Belmond Andean Explorer, which travels from Cusco to Arequipa in Peru.
