Budget N-S rail tour
the most beautiful routes in the world the Reunification Express
winds its way the length of the country from the capital, Hanoi
over 1250 miles to Ho Chi Minh City. Originally built by the
French at the beginning of the nineteen hundreds little has
changed since those days. It survived the constant American
bombardment during the war and since then the yearly floods
and typhoons. Although not always as basic as the third class
comfort, it certainly makes up in local colour and a certain
unique charm reminiscent of train journeys of a bygone era.
