Victoria Express Train
Reviving the Golden Age of Travel, the stylish, Indochina-inspired Victoria Express Train is all about a restful 8-hour overnight journey between Hanoi and Lao Cai, helping guests arrive refreshed and ready for a full day of sightseeing ahead.


Important Note:

Dear friends of the Victoria Express Train:

Our primary concern is for the safety and well-being of our staff and guests. In response to concerns around limiting the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made the decision to temporarily suspend operations of the Victoria Express Train effective until further notice. 

In the meantime, Victoria Sapa Resort & Spa remains fully operational, offering a comfortable base from which to get back to Nature in the beautiful hills of Sapa.

Thank you for your understanding, flexibility, and support during these challenging times. We are proud to help protect our community and look forward to welcoming you aboard at the earliest possible opportunity.
