THE TRAIN STREET IN HANOI (North Vietnam): Unique attraction where visitors can watch a train speeding by along a cramped thoroughfare.

There’s a residential street in Hanoi, Vietnam, that a speeding train passes straight through all nights of the week and all day on the weekend. The street is so narrow that all residents must ensure their bikes and precious personal belongings, as well as their roaming children, are all safely inside the house before the train passes. Built by the French in the beginning of the XX's century, this line spreading across Vietnam from North to South.


Dating back to 1881, the 1,730km North-South railway line passes through 21 provinces and cities across Vietnam. When Hanoi Station opened in 1902, the train lines that entered it were built in barren areas. But as the city grew and became more populated, houses were constructed closer and closer to the tracks.There’s no way I could let myself go to Hanoi so many times without visiting this unique place.

Hanoi Train street, as I like to call it, is located between Lê Duẩn and Khâm Thin street in Hanoi’s old quarter. You can find it on Google Maps here:

If you’re planning to travel in Vietnam for a few weeks, I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to have a Tour guide to discover enough Hanoi and understand so many things about the Vietnamese culture, the tradition, the living days in Vietnam, before to organise a trip alone.
