The experience I would like to share with you would base on the train schedules so that we have 2 options:

- Morning option starts at 8:00 am.
- Afternoon option starts at 1:45 pm.

You will be picked up from your accommodation, after the briefing, we will hop on a car to go to the train street ( where people are living along the activating train track ) which is officially banned from visiting by our government. But as a travel expert, we know the back door to let you sneak in and become one of the very few explorers who can interact with unknown and unique parts, experience the contrast between noise and peace of the neighborhood with a cup of egg coffee while the train passes by.
Afterward, we will explore the maze of a back street, finding exceptional experiences in the most common things which are tiny alleyways, local houses, school, and even mechanic black markets.
After all the unforgettable experiences, we will let you try a local snack before drop you back.

What To Expect

Train Street
- Train street is a really interesting and popular part of Hanoi with visitors but due to the poor management of our authority, the government banned it. We know how to let you in legally, take great photos of unique train street and observe how locals live along an activate railway with a cup of the famous egg coffee.
