Twice-weekly sleeper train from Hanoi to Beijing
There is a safe, comfortable & affordable twice-weekly train service between Hanoi and Beijing. An express train with modern air-conditioned 4-berth soft class sleepers and restaurant car runs from Hanoi to Beijing. At Dong Dang (the border) you pass through customs & passport control and board a connecting train for the final run to Beijing.
The train to Beijing departs from Hanoi's main railway station on Le Duan street. Enter Hanoi station's main entrance, turn sharp right and pass through the narrow passageway to the regular waiting room. Look for the little door in the corner marked 'Waiting Room for Passengers of International Train' in English. Wait in here, and staff will lead you to the train when it's ready for boarding, a single sleeper car at the north end of platform 1, a short walk from the waiting room.
In order to buy train tickets from Hanoi to Beijing, you need to provide us the copies of your passport together with Chinese visa. As the train departs twice a week then you need to book at least few days before departure date.
