The daily life of the locals that live there have to be packed up multiple times a day when a train is scheduled to pass. The following article will portray the life of Hanoi people here.

There are a number of spots along the track where you can watch the train speed by. We opted to watch the train pass from a segment of the street nearest the old quarter so we could walk there. You can head there using the map below, or just use it to guide you in the right direction. The train street lies on a small street between Kham Tien and Le Duan, the exact lane the train passes along is called Ngo 224 Le Duan. It is walkable from the old quarter, and it will take you about 35-40 minutes to walk at a decent speed. Try Uber or Grab if you are wanting to get a ride there.
Travelers in Hanoi tours can see the train with the train schedule. There are two trains which run along this route every day, one at 3:30 pm and one at 7:30 pm. We opted to watch the 3:30 pm train for the daylight and photo taking opportunities. Aim to be at the train street around 3 pm in order to make sure you are there in plenty of time and find a safe spot to watch from. The train comes from the South so you know which way to keep an eye out!
