A lot of travelers but also local people in Vietnam want to get from Saigon to Hanoi or from Hanoi to Saigon very fast.  The distance between these cities is really big. It is about 1 700 kilometers by car or bus and 1 100 km by air. It is good to travel by train from north to south, if you want to see the central coast of Vietnam or if you want to make a stopover in some big cities.
