Da Nang to Hue Destination Reviews

Very spacious with plenty of leg room. Lovely views of the Hai Van Pass
Train #SE6 2nd Class AC seats only, Vietnam Railways (Đường sắt Việt Nam), May 26, 2023
12Go made the booking experience very easy. The train was as expected, a little run down, some of the seats were broke, but the views were fabulous.

This was a very bad experience for us. The train was 1 hour late departing da nang, there was extremely minimal AC on the train, we were baking the whole journey, super uncomfortable, even more so because we expected AC as that’s what is sold. The train was dirty with rubbish from previous passengers including stones from fruit and bottles with unknown liquids left behind. We also stopped at lang co station for quite a period of time for no apparent reason and the train was very slow.

The seat in front was broken and duly reclined so my partner had barely any leg room for most of the trip. Otherwise the scenery on this journey is amazing, the seating is fairly comfortable and the AC works quite well.
Train #SE4 2nd Class AC seats only, Vietnam Railways (Đường sắt Việt Nam), May 9, 2023
The train stopped several times for almost an hour each for no obvious reason. There was no information in English available. We had a delay of three hours in total although we had left Danang on time. Also the train was quite filthy with bugs on the floors. Train ride as such with the views is beautiful though

Very noisy. People were sitted in the alley. The staff was kind

It was ok. Unfortunately the ac was so cold, we had to leave our cabin to stand in the corridor most of the time to avoid getting a cold.
Train #SE2 1st Class Sleeper, Vietnam Railways (Đường sắt Việt Nam), Apr 25, 2023
I would have thought that the beds in the sleeping car would be folded up during the day so that you could sit down. But this was not so.
Train #SE6 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Vietnam Railways (Đường sắt Việt Nam), Apr 15, 2023
Probably not the best rail was easy and without issue, electronic tickets arrived via email without issue. The SE6 train was a bit late leaving, we had no problems boarding or with our seats. Train was not in the cleanest condition and even though we had window seats on the ocean side, the windows had not been cleaned in some time, which made viewing and photography a bit of a struggle. The seats were not very clean either and the blankets provided had been used and used and used...The scenery on the other hand was lovely and once we were through the mountains, we chugged along quite nicely, arriving in Hue in good time.

These speeds of travel together with relatively short stops between stations can greatly shorten the duration of your trip.

Best-Rated Companies for this Route

Unlike buses or taxis which have numerous companies offering their services, train service is usually offered by just one major company in each country. As railway service requires a large amount of infrastructure, most railway companies are government-owned and are a part of the national transport system.

One of the best advantages of travelling by train is that railway stations are often conveniently located within or very near major cities and urban areas. Immediately on arrival to their destination, travellers find themselves in close proximity to important facilities like hotels, supermarkets, and hospitals.

If you travel with a lot of bags and luggage, trains are your best option. Luggage weight limits on trains are rather flexible and allow you to carry multiple bags with you.

Special or luxury trains feature sufficient legroom which allows you to stretch your legs and relax. In comfort and space these train seats can be compared to business class airplane seats.

Similar to buses, trains can provide a variety of amenities to make your travel more comfortable and enjoyable. Modern trains have WIFI service, a snack counter and a drinking bar. Onboard toilets can be a life saver for travellers with queasy stomachs.

Lastly, unlike buses and other overland means of transport, trains are very rarely involved in accidents.
