Step into a romantic era when train travel was more than just a way to get from A to B. Surrounded by elegant style inside and passing by North Vietnam’s exotic scenery outside, the Victoria Express is the finest and most comfortable way to pass the 340 kilometre journey between charming Hanoi and Sapa.

Two luxury sleeping carriages take off six times a week holding seven handsome cabins each. All provide the best in Vietnamese locomotive comfort with air conditioning, wood panelling design and large windows.

Vietnamese and western four-course set menus are then served in the well-heeled dining carriage, ‘Le Tonkin’, alongside a good choice of wines and friendly service.
