Back on the Train Again

View Singapore to London Overland on grasshopper's travel map.

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.

Hi Colin, good stories, I can picture the mayhem on the 'roads' you have written about. You're probably going to get 'roadshock' when you finally travel on a road for 25kms without swapping sides or sidestepping potholes. "Oh how boring this road is"

Collin, you sound like a cherry in a cocktail mixer. All that shake rattle and rolle. What's the food been like?
