Vietnam Railways has launched the Hanoi-Beijing railway line on January 1, 2020 in a move to facilitate people’s travel demand.
Accordingly, the transnational passenger train from Hanoi to Beijing will run two trips a week. The train departs from Gia Lam railway station of Hanoi on Tuesday and Friday and arrives in Beijing West on Thursday and Sunday.
Meanwhile, the train departs from Beijing West on Thursday and Sunday and then arrives to Gia Lam station on Tuesday and Saturday.
The Hanoi-Beijing train will stop to let passengers on and off at Dong Dang, Bac Giang, and Gia Lam stations of Vietnam and Pingxiang, Chongzuo, Nanning, and Zhengzhou of China.
Passengers can buy a ticket to a third country by rail when they arrive in Beijing. VIR
The path for domestic and international investors like Saigon Newport and Lotte to join railway projects in Vietnam remains arduous, urging authorised agencies to make more positive changes to unlock private investment.
Vietnam Railways (VNR) plans to upgrade the country’s rail infrastructure by building 300 new and high-quality train carriages and purchasing more locomotives by 2023.
