A TOUR to Vietnam in September offers the rare opportunity of exploring the country on the legendary Reunification Express, one of the world's greatest rail journeys.
Travellers on the Scott McGregor's Railway Adventures tour will be welcomed onto their private rail carriages in Ho Chi Minh City.
Travel will be in stages, enjoying Vietnam's amazing destinations on a 2500km odyssey north to Hanoi and, as an optional extra, Sapa, returning in a special Haratours sleeper carriage.
The adventure includes side journeys to the colourful colonial hill station city of Dalat and the ancient trading port of Hoi An.
Passengers can choose an optional tour on the normally inaccessible last steam railway in Indochina.
The tour includes an overnight cruise around the islands of Ha Long Bay.
All along the way, travellers will experience the rich culture of Vietnam, its ancient kingdoms and colonial past, ethnic diversity and post-war reconstruction.
