    An invitation to enjoy an ethnic minority dinner may present something of a challenge for foreigners or city-dwellers used to safe but bland dining. But once the offer’s been made it’s hard to refuse.

    The Hanoi Railway Transport Co. is trying to cash in on the summer holiday season by upgrading trains to popular destinations. The company has added more comfortable seats and beds and cleaned up toilets on trains from Hanoi to Lao Cai and the north-central city of Vinh, nearby the popular Cua Lo Beach. It has also introduced shuttle buses to take passengers from Lao Cai train station to Sapa and from Vinh train station to Cua Lo. Sapa is one of the most famous towns in Vietnam, becoming even more popular during the summer thanks to its cool climate. Most tourists previously travelled to the town by train from Hanoi, but since the Noi Bai-Lao Cai Expressway opened in September 2014, many find the five-hour bus ride more appealing than the eight-hour trip on the train. Train tickets from Hanoi to Sapa now cost up to $20, but the company said summer vacationers would receive a discount of 10-20%. Cua Lo Beach, which stretches over 10 km, is one of the most popular beaches in northern Vietnam, with white sands and clear blue water.
