Overnight Sleeping Trains:
We don’t recommend it, it takes15 to 18 hours on a very crowded train. Toilets are not clean enough and smelly. Food is not good in general. Beds are not that comfortable. Comment from a client: “However, I am 6'0" (183 cm) tall and barely fit into the bed -- anyone taller would have to curl up.”
We recommend upgrading your reservation to a domestic flight.
