Try to be in Hanoi at the weekend because the daytime train in the morning and afternoon isn’t coming at weekdays 😪 but it’s a really nice experience in the dark as well (6am/7pm). Be careful!

Watch out for train coming. People eat and do all sorts of everyday things along the tracks. Very unusual and worth having a look.

Both weird and wonderful and well worth a visit, even just to experience the narcissism. It’s basically a bunch of people taking selfies on a train track. One couple even had lighting equipment in pursuit of their new insta pic 🤦🏻‍♂️

I visited train street on my last day in Hanoi. I am currently backpacking through South East Asia. Trains pass through this narrow street (with houses on each side) at regular intervals. You have to stand back against the buildings otherwise you are dead, my...More
