HCMC – The railway industry will keep in place the extra train schedules designed for the Tet holiday season, according to the Hanoi Railway Transport JSC (HARACO).
TN3 and SE9 trains will be in service longer than expected to meet the travel demands of passengers from central provinces to HCMC, Binh Duong and Dong Nai after the 10th day of the lunar new year.
Particularly, the TN3 train will continue to serve passengers until February 5 (the 15th of the first lunar month) instead of February 2 as in the previous schedule. The train departs Hanoi Railway Station at 12:25 p.m. and arrives at Saigon Railway Station at 3 a.m.
Meanwhile, the SE9 train will run until February 7 instead of February 5 as earlier scheduled, departing Hanoi Railway Station at 9 p.m. and arriving at Saigon Railway Station at 10:30 a.m.
The tickets for those train trips are available at the normal price, 20% lower than during the peak period at Tet, according to a representative of the Hanoi Railway Transport JSC.
