Take a journey through northern Vietnam by train aboard the classic Vietnam train, which was built by the French more than 100 years ago. The country has been using the train to transfer not only the local people but also buffaloes, pigs, chickens and many other goods from the mountains to the capital city of Hanoi. Travel through the country’s scenic mountains then spend a few days on a private adventure in Sapa with an experience hiking guide.
