How early to book sleeper train?

I am planning on booking an overnight train berth from HCMC to Nha Trang in mid-May. Is it likely they will be sold out early, as happens in India, or could I be confident of buying a ticket a day or two before the trip?

Flying is a better option. Unless its a public holiday etc, it is usually safe to buy a ticket a day or 2 in advance

Hotels will usually book one for you. The trains run north fairly frequently.

Thank you. I rather enjoy the overnight train trips though. Will probably fly on the return leg.
