Train was very noisy. Was supposed to travel from Ho Chi Minh to Hanoi but got off at Danang and flew the rest of the journey due to train being very noisy and difficult to sleep.

Boarded the plane and the A/C was not turned on until after we were in the air which made it unbearable for a long time as we boarded early but departed later due to waiting for passengers.

Efficient, clean, easy and affordable. Great way to get from HCMC to Hanoi if you have the time. We took a 4 berth cabin with 2 adults and 2 children aged 3 and 5. Hot food served at every meal and toilets were usable.

I have traveled on Vietnamese trains before and although it had 4 beds, they seemed to be hard sleepers. Last time I booked first class, through the station, they were soft mattresses. I was the first person to arrive on the train and was put into a bottom bunk in a carriage. Later, someone came into my carriage about 8:30pm shouting, "what's your neme?", in English, then someone who was not sleeping In the carriage kept coming and opening the door. They would leave the door open and it did not feel safe. Actually, I have been very disappointed with this journey, although one stuardess was very friendly.

Staff English is very poor. It was also really cold in the cabin and there were a few bugs in my bed.
But, the price was very cheap, can not really expect a lot for the price I paid.

I flew in December 2019 from Saigon to Hanoi with Vietnam airlines via 12go.asia.
I bought the tickets 3 days before received the voucher immediately which allows you to get the airline ticket at the airport.
Great service received from both companies. Thank you.

Lower your expectations folks, it’s a frickin train!
Yes, toilets are smelly, but there’s ha hose to shower of all possible disgusting things and bring wet tissues and hand sanitizer. We had toilet paper, but better bring some of that too if you want to be sure.
Yes, people leave and new come and that makes some noise, also it’s a train so it make noise. Bring noise cancelling headphones or earplugs - no big deal.
They served food on the train, we ate that and brought instant noodles and fruits. Also they sell snacks on a carriage but that’s quite expensive.
There is hot and cold water, but we only used the hot as we were unsure of the quality of cold (means also bring own water).
Cabin for 2 was great, nice pillow and blanket. They provided water, tea, coffee and some strange vacuum packed banh mi which was terrible. AC was on and off so mostly the temperature was ok, but do bring some sweater or something for the day.
The views were amazing! First through south of Vietnam overlooking the cloudy hills and then train changed orientation and we got to see the coast in central Vietnam from our window. We’re about 40-60 min late all the way but arrived on time.
Overall (after experiencing Russian railways) over my expectations and a great experience.
