Central Highlands of Vietnam Railway Map

Indonesia's mega railway plan, Sino-Thai rail line back on track, and more delays for the Hanoi Metro.

This week completes the Central Highlands of Vietnam feature with a surprisingly comprehensive regional rail map. I say surprisingly because I only set out to map the route of the planned Central Highlands line. The more research I did though, the more proposed lines I uncovered.

Before you get too excited, most of these lines will probably never happen (in our lifetimes at least). Putting all these lines together on one map shows what a comprehensive railway network *could* look like, which is what Future Southeast Asia is all about.

I plan to do more regional railway maps like this in the future. If you would like to support my work I have a paid subscription option, which helps fund making more content like this.
