The train from Saigon to Hanoi was the most basic I’ve been on this trip, reflecting the relative wealth of the countries. I chose “hard sleeper”, which actually was kind of hard - 3 tiers of sleeper. I was on the middle tier which turned out to be just right for looking out the window. The coastal scenery in Central and Northern Vietnam was spectacular, like New Zealand.
