People tend to check in during these times:
We paid exactly 20k VND metered Mai Linh taxi fare yesterday from the middle of the Old Quarter. Paying something like 70k (for 2 km anywhere in Vietnam) is either laziness and/or blatant ignorance.
Old and service sucks
Nothing special, pretty ugly.
These bathrooms have left me scarred for life.
The bathrooms will make you barf. And watch out for the secret police who whip out their concealed handguns when taking down ticket dodgers!
Buy tickets to Sapa from the counter no. 1. Don't bother to use ticketing system and wait for your turn. Just go and fight for it! ;-)
For the most part, seems like people use the ticketing system (now?). Someone came up right next to me while I was wrapping up my transaction and the agent ignored him. Cash only, bring your passport.
beware the rigged meters in the early mornings (even if they tell you it's by the meter). this is one of the few occasions that I will say to set the price before you board.
Get your train tickets right here. No agent needed, as there is a ticketing system for the queue and the staff speaks English.
Watch out the scammers. A lot of people trying to take advantage on you. Nothing will happen if you just take care.
Be Careful of the sketchy scammers that stand at the entrance to the train station asking for your "ticket" and whisking you off to the train while asking for insane tips for their "help"
If you're heading to Sapa on the overnight train, KEEP YOUR TICKET. They will collect it when you arrive, after you disembark from the train, at the exit gate.
If hotel/agency says there are no longer tickets available whatsoever. Check the tickets office at the railway station, they still might have
Free rest room inside terminal.
Luggage keeping service for 20000đ.
If all soft sleeper tickets are sold, a high chance that travel agencies still have them, for a higher price of course. A hotel across the street (or any other) can quickly order tickets for you.
Our hotel advised us in case no one picks us up at the station if train arrives very early(5am) to take a cab outside the station and set the price to 70k VND to old quarter b4 getting on.
When you take a number to the ticket office,dont wait for your turn.Local people never respect numbers,and ladies in offices mostly skip few numbers in line.Just go and fight for a ticket immediately
Tip for foreigners: Take a number to booking office, but never wait for it! Immediately push yourself into the nearest office window. :)
:) looks like this
Was advised online to get a ticket. After being there, seeing the numbers don't tally. Asked a counter, no ticket day
Be ware of black market ticket sellers! Buy from the booth at reasonable price
Try to have some memories w any kind persons
Beware of the pocket-picker here
DO NOT get on those taxi outside of the station as many of them have fixed meters or will take you all over the places to scam money from you!
WC is very dirty and charged :| the train (SE1) is so ugly and bad infrastructure =_=
