Tourists getting ready to schedule their vacations should consider traveling by air or train from Ho Chi Minh city or Hanoi as their best options to reach their destinations at set times depending on their budgets.

These modes of transport will help them avoid traffic congestion to and from the big cities, especially during peak hours.

Certainly, travelers will save a lot of time traveling by plane but prices are more expensive. The big advantage of trains is that they depart punctually and passengers do not have to pay for luggage.

Trains also offer passengers better timetables so that they can leave HCMC in the evening and arrive in tourist spots in Central Vietnam in the morning of the next day. This same scenario applies to train trips from Hanoi to Lao Cai, where tourists normally travel by car to explore the resort town of Sapa and other scenic spots in Northern Vietnam. Traveling by train is longer but by undergoing overnight travel on the train and dinner, it saves travelers money for hotels or guesthouses.

Experienced travelers normally take the train to Central Vietnam favorites Nha Trang, Binh Dinh, Phu Yen and Phan Rang from Saigon Railway Station in District 3. There is a good service for tourists to travel between HCMC and Mui Ne, known as the kingdom of resorts in Binh Thuan Province, within four hours instead of six or more by car or bus.

To book tickets for trains to central and northern regions of Vietnam, tourists can access vetau.com.vn or ask hotel staff in Ho Chi Minh city and Hanoi for assistance.
