Taking rail travel to a lavish level

Rail travel enthusiasts are counting down to the arrival of a new luxury train journey that links Vietnam’s major cities – from the vibrant capital of Hanoi to the bustling metropolis of Ho Chi Minh City.

Carving its way in an s-shaped route across the country, the Sjourney train will be Vietnam’s first private train experience with 10 cars and a total of 30 deluxe sleeping cabins for up to 60 passengers.

The all-inclusive rail journey includes seven nights on board the train with all meals, excursions and transportation included in one convenient package. Guests will have several opportunities to disembark and explore historical cities, towns and landmarks en route, such as the captivating cliffs of Ninh Binh, the caves of Quang Binh, the imperial citadel of Hue and more.


Travelling at speeds of up to 50 kph, the train embraces the slow travel concept and comes complete with a host of unique dining experiences, including a home-style dinner amidst endless rice paddies and al fresco dining beside the historical Cham towers.

The Sjourney train is set to depart on its maiden journey on 4 September 2024. After that, weekly services are scheduled to depart every Wednesday from either Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City. Contact our team for more details at Asian Trails Vietnam.
