Beautiful architectural design with historical theme in art-deco style. The inside was still remind us of the way tickets are bought and where they sit and wait for the train. Pity the luggage rack area was condoned off, think of the way they were transport from the train to the station. Pity that it is not too well preserved and... More

If you happen to be in the neighborhood stop by...don't make a special trip there. I love architectural gems and although this place is interesting it is not worth and all out effort to see it. Once there you need all of 5 min.

An example of French Colonial architecture, from the late 1930's. Worth a look for the wonderfully colourful interior due to excessive amount of stained glass. You can wander out onto the platforms to see a preserved Japanese Steam train, a couple of other locos. Judging by other reviews it doesn't seem worth paying for a train trip from here.

A pretty bizarre experience all round. First of all - you have to buy your ticket at least half an hour before departure time and the train will only run with a minimum of twenty passengers. So we got there 50 minutes early - just in time to catch the ticket seller who was quickly exiting for a break. She... More

The Railway Station IMO was not that special. It is very popular as a spot for bridal photography. Trains leave for the village of Trai Mat periodically during the day. 124,000 vnd, 8km ride. I enjoyed my train trip with complimentary bottle of water but was gob smacked by the village pagoda I visited on arrival. I can't remember the... More

French colonial building with well worn original leather couches. The old steam engine is just outtside. Costs about $8 US for a roundtrip train ride to Trai Mat -- about 30 minutes. Once in Trai Mat walk about 5 minutes and view the famous Chua Linh pagoda.

If you want to look back the old time, this is the exact destination for you. The very old steam engine is displayed to recall its own glory in the past. The architectural design of the station is typical colonial style. Photo shooting will be great at the station. Taking a ride to Trai Mat, visiting the famous pagoda over... More

It's only a half hour ride, then 40 minutes to look around and back on the train for the half hour back. It's like riding the train in the Victorian era. Have a coffee at the station cafe, which is an old train carriage.

I think this is a great place for all tourists to come and see the beautiful old train and train station. With a little money you can also get a ticket to try the short route to Trai Mat by train for 40 minutes. a good deal for budget travelers.
