Orient Express (also known as the Oriental Impress) is a popular choice for tourists visiting Sapa from Hanoi. With its long history of operation, Orient Express offers a number of seat types: VIP cabin that has 2 berth, private deluxe cabin with 4 berths, and deluxe cabins where you share the cabin with other passengers. If one walks past the Orient carriage, he or she will not go without noticing this special train: the artistic Oriental exterior design and high use of carved wood interior. Orient ticket price is on the average side of all Hanoi Sapa train which also explains its popularity.

Orient Express offers a quite stunning decoration compared with many other trains operating the same route. The cabin is well maintained and the ticket price is reasonable.
The VIP cabin is located on one end of the carriage, which may cause some noise as it is set on the wheels.
