Hi, We are going to join the train tour. I read that we'll take an overnight train to Lao Cai. Is it possible to fit 5 of us - 2 adults and 3 small kids aged 3, 5, and 8 in one compartment?

@Reid Medina:

There will be one person have to go to another cabin because the cabin on train is very small so cannot fit for 5 person
