The cheapest way to get a ticket is getting it directly from the ticket booths at the city train stations. However, sometimes, you can save up to 30% by buying the ticket off the counter.

However, sometimes, waiting and booking at the last minute (even 2-3 days in advance are considered last minute) might be really risky as berths or seats on popular route are not always available. If you want to reserve online, expect to be charged extra fee by ticket agents, most of which will provide free ticket delivery. south Vietnam tours
