HCM City (VNA) - The Sai Gon Railway Transport Joint Stock Company has launched a luxury train from Ho Chi Minh City to Nha Trang.

The train’s coaches have semi-automatic doors, 56 seats that convert, power sockets, and eco-safe toilets.

They are fire- and sound-proof and have wider aisles to give passengers more space to walk.

The train will leave HCM City at 8.30pm and arrive in Nha Trang at 5:27 the next morning, and leave Nha Trang at 8.06pm.

This is the second five-star train on the route.

Six more such trains would be introduced on high-demand routes around the country by 2021, said Vu Anh Minh, chairman of Vietnam Railways.-VNA
