I traveled by train when I was young, it was a journey to Nha Trang. I remembered only one thing that it is very cold in the train, impressed me.

I prefer the plane to the train because the aircraft is faster and the train is not suitable for a long distance.

Hi, I remember when I was younger traveled with my father in train from Bogotá to Zipaquira - a town near to the city-. This experience was really nice.
