A Vietnamese train-building company is set to deliver a luxury bar car, built by its Vietnamese engineers, to a partner on Monday to serve tourism purposes between Da Nang and the south-central province of Binh Dinh.

The train car, equipped with a bar counter and massage chairs, is built by Di An Train JSC, a train-building firm based in the namesake town in the southern province of Binh Duong Province, which borders Ho Chi Minh City to the south and southwest.

The luxury car has been upgraded from an existing carriage by Di An company’s Vietnamese engineers at a total cost of VND2 billion (US$85,700).

The engineers used top-quality materials and an elegant color scheme to modernize the carriage, aiming to satisfy the passengers’ needs.

The train builder is set to deliver the railcar to its partner on Monday, May 19.

According to Nguyen Huu Hoan, deputy director of Di An Train JSC, before the luxury carriage, the company’s staff had produced over 100 high-quality railway cars that had been put into service by various railway companies.

One official from Saigon Railway Transport JSC told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper the railcar was renovated into a bar carriage to meet the demand of its partner, which provides hospitality services.

The advanced rolling stock is scheduled to enter into service in July 2020.

It will be connected to a local passenger train running between Da Nang City in central Vietnam and Dieu Tri Town in the south-central province of Binh Dinh.
