What kind of sleepers are there on Vietnam Railway

*Hard seat:
You get what you pay for certainly holds true when it comes to hard seats on a Vietnamese train. It is a hard seat -- actually a wooden bench seat to be exact

*Soft seat:
Soft seat are considerably more comfortable and are more than adequate for day-travel. The seats are quite difficult to sleep in though.

*Hard sleeper:
We'd say they're more than adequate for the budget traveler, though you won't be planning to fit a hard sleeper into your bedroom back home. Hard sleeper comes in a six-berth configuration with both a fan-cooled and air-con option. The cheapest bunk is the top one, then the middle one, with the lowest bunk being the most expensive. The compartments do not have a door.

*Soft sleeper:
This is the most comfortable class and comes with surprisingly soft beds in a four-bed configuration, with or without air-con. Unlike hard sleepers, these compartments do have a door so are considerably more secure.
