HCMC – In response to the high travel demand before and after the Tet holiday, the railway sector in Vietnam has made an additional 7,000 tickets available for routes connecting HCMC to central and northern provinces during the time for family reunion.

On January 24 and 25, train SE32 will depart from Saigon to Hanoi, and during January 26 and 27, SE11 will be deployed to carry passengers in the opposite direction.

To accommodate the growing demand for travel back to major cities after Tet, additional trains will operate from Quang Ngai and Quy Nhon to HCMC on February 20 and 21, offering 4,000 extra seats on these routes.

Previously, around 3,000 tickets were made available for routes connecting HCMC, Binh Duong, and Dong Nai to stations from Quang Ngai Province to Hanoi and vice versa.

This year, the railway sector aims to offer more than 200,000 tickets for the nation’s longest holiday, equivalent to nearly 400 trips. The highest price will be nearly VND3 million per ticket for the HCMC-Hanoi route, an increase of VND200,000 compared to the previous year.

Currently, there are 3% promotional offers for trains departing from Saigon railway station two days before the Lunar New Year, applicable to travel distances of 1,000 km or more.

Railway tickets can be purchased through various channels, including websites such as dsvn.vn, vetau.com.vn, and giare.vetau.vn, railway stations, authorized agents, digital wallets, or the railway call center.
