Train #SE1 1st Class Sleeper, Vietnam Railways (Đường sắt Việt Nam), Dec 2, 2019
Train was all on time and relatively comfortable, had a better sleep than when we used the sleeper bus. Bottom bunks we’re great and lots of charging points and he table between the beds was a nice touch. Our bags fit under the bed so still had floor space. The train was quite loud from around 5am but all was good. Would recommend using the 1st class sleeper train for longer journeys
