Victoria Express is reserved for only in-house guests, meaning that you have to stay at Victoria resort in order to purchase the train tickets. Please book your resort stay in advance and have a confirmation ID ready when you book your train tickets. We reserve the rights to decline your booking if you do not stay at Victoria resort.
There are two types of cabins: superior cabins which have 4 berths and deluxe cabins which have 2 berths. The superior cabin is ideal for families or larger group of travelers while the private deluxe cabin offers privacy and intimacy. There are a total of 2 deluxe and 8 superior cabins on each train. It goes without saying that Victoria Express train is a treat for the eyes: the interior is artistically decorated, with wood being paneled in all cabins and the theme is after classic Western style with an Eastern fusion.
Located at both end of the carriage are toilets which are well kept and decorated with wooden furniture.
Note: from May 2016, the dining carriage has ceased to operate so there is no option for dinner on board.
Victoria train schedule is as follow:
- Depart Hanoi at 21:50 and arrive in Lao Cai at 6:15 next morning
- Depart Lao Cai at 21:00 and arrive in Hanoi at 5:30 next morning
Please note that Victoria Trains do not run on on Saturday.
Quality of services and equipments on Victoria Express are one of the most excellent features of this train. It is the only train that offers a true luxury experience of traveling between Hanoi and Lao Cai. Guests who value luxury and privacy make no false choice in taking this train.
Another advantage this train is that, compared to some other trains, time frame of this train on Hanoi-Lao Cai route is more appropriate to most of the travelers as they arrive later in the day and have more time to sleep.
Victoria Express ticket is more expensive than the rest of the trains and the amount can be several times higher than the standard train. Also, the train tickets are often prebooked well in advance due to limitted capacity.
