About Vietnam Railways

Company information

Vietnam Railways is the national train carrier of Vietnam. It runs the country's major railway line, the 1600 km-long Reunification Line, also known as North-South express railway Vietnam, as well as minor lines around the country, including Lao Cai, and Haiphong lines.

The main line connects Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC), Vietnam's two major cities. The Reunification Line was completed in 1936, with services running until 1954 when war divided the country. It was not then possible to catch a train from Hanoi to HCMC until 1976.

Note that some VNR trains feature carriages reserved by private transport operators widely known as luxury trains.

Vietnam railway system and most popular routes

Trains in Vietnam are a cheap, convenient and comfortable way to travel the country. The main train route in Vietnam goes north–south with almost all the major tourist destinations lying on, or close to, the Reunification Line so it's easy to get anywhere you might want to go in Vietnam by train.

Other reasons to consider train travel in Vietnam:

  • Taking an overnight train saves you the precious daytime of your vacation and some bucks for accommodation

  • Scenery from your railway carriage window, both urban and rural, is terrific and gives you a wonderful insight into the local life

  • Vietnam has a wide network of railway stations – you can get almost anywhere by rail

  • A train trip is a quintessentially Vietnamese experience not to be skipped

Here are some of the most popular Vietnam train journeys to take:

Reunification line

The epic Hanoi–Ho Chi Minh City and Saigon–Hanoi rail journey takes around 33 hours.

The most popular stops along this line include

Hanoi–Lao Cai

This is arguably the most popular Vietnam train line with international tourists. It brings you to Lao Cai, which is the closest railway station to the hill station of Sapa. Sapa town itself does not have its own train station, but there are plenty of buses and taxis heading to Sapa from Lao Cai, around 40 km away.

Getting from Hanoi to Lao Cai takes around nine hours.

Hanoi–Haiphong

To travel onward to Ha Long Bay and Cat Ba Island, catch the Hanoi to Hai Phong train. A journey to Hai Phong takes around three hours.

Vietnam train schedule

There are at least 6 trains plying the Reunification Line every day with the extended train timetable during peak seasons like Tet festival (Vietnamese New Year) in January or February.

Odd numbered trains travel from north to south and even numbered ones – in the opposite direction.

For the most comfortable train travel choose SE1, SE2, SE3 and SE4 trains, which are the best trains in Vietnam equipped with AC soft and hard sleepers.

Classes in Vietnam trains

There is a wide range of berths and seats classes for all trips from which you can choose depending or whether you want a seat or a sleeper, air-conditioning or not.

There is no such thing as a ‘tourist train’ in Vietnam railways rolling stock. Usually, the term refers to private luxury carriages that are added to standard Vietnam Railways trains on certain routes, e.g. from Hanoi to Sapa or from Hanoi to Da Nang.

The best choice for long-distance travel in Vietnam is sleeper trains. They can be both day and night trains.

  1. First class sleeper trains in Vietnam are called soft-sleepers.
    1st class sleeper trains can be of two varieties: VIP soft sleepers with 2-berths compartments and ordinary soft-sleepers featuring seven 4-berths compartments with 2 upper and 2 lower berths. They are all air-conditioned and were refurbished to ‘5 star’ trains a couple years ago.

  2. Second class sleepers are called hard sleepers.
    These are a great and budget-friendly way for overnight train journey, too. Each compartment in a hard sleeper is equipped with 6 berths – 2 lower, 2 middle and 2 upper. They are air-conditioned, too.

  3. Seats.
    Seats come in three varieties:

  • AC soft seats ideal for daytime journeys like from Da Nang to Hue. They usually have power sockets for charging your mobile devices.

  • AC hard seats are wooden seats, which may not be the best choice for longer journeys but work perfectly well on shorter distances.

  • Ordinary hard seats are exactly the same as the previous option but there is no air-conditioning. Yet windows can be open along the way to enjoy the view and some fresh air.

Vietnam Railway tickets

Vietnam train tickets can be bought online or at any railway station in the country.

Vietnam railways open booking 60 days before the departure date (for certain routes – 90 days before) and it is highly advisable to buy train tickets in advance for longer routes and if you need to travel on a specific date in a soft or hard sleeper.

There are no open-date tickets – you have to specify the date and the route for each segment you wish to travel.

Train tickets in Vietnam cost the same for locals and foreigners – there is no dual-pricing policy.

For online booking you have several options including buying directly from Vietnam Railways website. The difficulty here is that only Vietnamese credit cards are accepted, so if you do not have one, you won’t be able to pay for your ticket.

Our website accepts all types of credit cards and offers seamless online Vietnam train tickets booking process. We charge a small booking and processing fee.

Pros

  • Both day and overnight trains in Vietnam are a more convenient and comfortable way to get around Vietnam than buses.

  • VN railways offer brilliant value for money. Vietnam train prices are surprisingly low – e.g. there is no other way to travel from Hanoi to Saigon for less than 1 million dong.

  • Trains in Vietnam are pretty comfortable. The majority of them were given a facelift several years ago and now are of a very good standard.

  • Traditional Vietnamese food sold by vendors in the carriages is super tasty and all part of the experience.

  • There are charging ports throughout the carriages.

  • Families travelling with children will be pleased to hear that children aged below four years old can travel for free, whilst those between five and nine years old get a 25% discounted fare.

Cons

  • Delays are common and the journey is often very long and slow so you should take this into consideration when planning your trip.

  • The air-conditioning is not always the best quality; it can be too hot or too cold.

  • Cleanliness of the carriages – especially bathrooms – may sometimes be an issue though the situation has improved considerably lately.

  • Check the bedding if you board a train mid-way between Hanoi and HCMC as it may not have been changed after the previous traveller.

  • There are no announcements when you are arriving into a station so make sure you pay attention or find out when you are due to arrive so you can set an alarm to wake you up.

Train was good, but 12go Asia charges too much. Train itself costs 100k, 12go Asia charges 181k plus service costs. Too much.

train Cabin 2x, Vietnam Railways, Mar 15, 2020
Great experience, we’d done intramural flights and sleeper buses. So thought we’d give this a try too. 2 person cabin was clean and comfortable, air con worked fine. They give you a pillow and thin quilt/blanket. Thick mattress with a clean sheet on as well. Would use again but give the food amiss and take my own noodles (there’s a machine dispensing boiling water) Toilets were a little grubby but quite useable All in all a fun experience

В принципе, если нет вариантов других, то можно воспользоваться и жд. Но самый шок - тараканы... разных видов и размеров...

No WiFi and no one to help us with the wifi, which is why we booked the 1st class. We got there safe which is why we rated it 3 stars. The beds were more comfortable then the 2nd class. But the ride itself was very bumpy, they have 5 people and a baby in a pod for 4 people, the foot latch to get to the top bunk was broken. The door kept getting stuck so closing our door was very difficult. Honestly next time if we ride with them again we would do the private 2x bed room. I would not want to risk being that uncomfortable again in the 4pod room.

Old train, nothing fancy but everything you need to get from a to b. We were lucky enough to get a 4 berth cabin to ourselves which was awesome. They do serve a cheap meal on the train which we didn't know about, it was pretty good $3.50aud for rice veg chicken and soup. You buy a little ticket from one guy and the food is served at around 6pm. Other than that there is a cart with coffee, beer and a few snacks. We did get woken at 5.20 to some god awful music blaring, nasty! At least we didn't miss our stop. Toilets are as bad as you could expect.

Comfortable seats. Easy to navigate and little fuss. The train was 15 minutes late in to Da Nang but because of single track streches on the route, the lateness of a train coming up from Da Nang caused us to wait for a little longer on route so it could pass. Cheap, effective, comfortable way to travel

Le pongo 4 porque es un método de transporte caro para lo que es el pais. Las camas un poco duras, por lo demás una experiencia curiosa y un modo de transporte comodo para viajar mientras ves el paisaje y te echas un sueñito (esa noche no pagas hotel y malgastas tiempo viajando)

Malgré nos places réservées comme couchettes comme dans le voyage précédent, nous nous sommes trouvés avec des sièges, assez larges et confortables, et proche du wagon restaurant (ou Can Tin). Pendant une heure du début et a la fin des 9 heures on a eu droit au train TV avec de la musique et sketchs. Il faut chercher un peu pour trouver un WC moyennement propre avec une porte qui ferme. Passage régulier de vente des boissons, repas, maïs, et des femmes qui montent à chaque gare pour proposer des fruits.

All in all it was a comfortable trip with great timing but the music at the beginning of the trip and the advertisment/program on "RailTV" was so loud that we had to put in earplugs.

La cabine était plutôt propre même si deux locaux ont plus que pris leurs aises. En revanche les toilettes sont très vétuste et sale.

Group of 4 people had 2nd Class AC seats booked. We go onto train and ticket inspector heckled us for money to move to sleeping beds thstvwere covered with clock roaches. He would leave us alone until we paid and eventually we did. Happy ending as we slept really well after disinfectant the carriage. Still, Bad customer service. Train arrived on time.

We had been given top bunks for the 9 hour trip but there was no one else in the compartment so we raised the middle berths so we could sit comfortably on the bottom ones. There was a frequent appearance of food trolleys, and the canteen had cold beer and also food but was mainly full of train staff. The toilet was reasonably clean and one even had toilet paper.

Excellent personnel. Sentiment de securité. Cabines ok. Seul point négatif les wc qui auraient pu être plus accueillantes.

Travelling Vietnam Rail is not a luxury experience, but no complaints - you get what you pay for. They should change the bed linen after each passenger though.
