• Hanoi Train Street

    I wouldn’t have known about the Train Street if I hadn’t done a little bit of research. This is my guide to Hanois train street. As soon as I saw how awesome it was, I knew it had to be done. Our day didn’t really go to plan that day as we originally wanted to see Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum. But sadly it wasn’t open that day but we were there. But we got to see the outside and take a few photos before heading towards Train Street.

    A GUIDE TO HANOI’S TRAIN STREET // HOW TO SEE THE TRAINS AND PLACES TO EAT

    We had a bit of time to kill before the train arrived so we booked a table for afterwards to eat at one of our favourite restaurants called Ngon Villa which you can read about in my recommended places to eat in Vietnam post.

    We had a little walk down the tracks before finding a nice spot in this lovely Vietnamese couples cafe were they had a good spot to sit down and you could order drinks for whilst you wait and take in the area around you. They also told us when the train was coming and also vital safety information as the trains go at such a speed and it’s quite dangerous if you are not standing in the right place.

    HOW DO I FIND THE TRAIN STREET?

    It was quite difficult to find Train Street without google maps and without following the roads leading up to it. Once we had left Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum, we followed quite a few streets filled with shops dedicated to specific things which was quite interesting. A whole shop for sewing machines, a whole shop for mirrors and photo frames etc etc which was really awesome and quite bizarre at the same time.

    WHAT TIME SHOULD I GO TO TRAIN STREET?

    It was a little bit of a hit or miss with us catching the train on Train Street on our first day until we tried again for our second try and the lovely lady in the Railway Station cafe we stopped at to watch told us the train times.

    Mon – Fri
    7 pm, 7.45 pm, 9.30 pm and 10 pm.

    Weekend
    6 am, 9 am, 11.20 am, 3.20 pm, 5.30 pm, 6 pm, 7 pm, 7.45 pm, 8.30 pm, 9 pm and 11 pm.

    There is lots of places to eat on Train Street which I have marked on the map below. We had food at a lovely restaurant called Ngon Villa which is beautifully decorated inside and their food is authentic Vietnamese.

    It is decorated like a traditional Vietnamese house inside and most of the recipes are passed down from their relatives which they cook frequently. Ngon Villa is about a 20 minute walk down the track from Train Street and there you will come across plenty of other places to eat as well.
