Hanoi to Da Nang Destination Reviews

Overpriced. Got a sleeper with SE5 which is not exclusive to Laman express. Could have paid less for the same beds. Only differences are bed sheets/ cover and extra snacks and drinks in the train provided by Laman Express.
Train #SЕ5 VIP Sleeper 4x, Laman Express, Jun 10, 2022
we booked a deluxe VIP cabin and upon boarding we were put into an old Vietnam Railways wagon with just Laman Express blankets. It was nothing as advertised. Even though it is promised/ guaranteed that Laman Express never uses old recycled Vietnam Railways cars and that you will never be placed in a regular Vietnam Railways car. Having paid extra for this 16 hour trip to not take Vietnam Railways for the exact reason that they are very uncomfortable, dirty, and dark. When we asked the lady who showed us the way to the train where the Laman express counter was in the station she said there was no office there for us to speak to about changing or refund.

Die Toiletten waren nicht sauber.
Train #SE19 1st Class Sleeper, Laman Express, Mar 27, 2020
Not a good experience in general. Nuoc Ngam Station in Hanoi is hot, no air conditioning at passengers waiting room. Hoang Long staff and counter do not show a friendly face when we approached him, do not provide good information to us. The bus driver that night are rude, not only to customers, also the way he drive, every 5 seconds he will sound the horn, we can't sleep well. He were angry when other passangers requested for an emergency stop for toilet. He and his assistant smoke in the bus, it was really uncomfortable for this as I expecting an aircon coach without smoking. The assistant character slightly better. The meal provided are really simple, low quality. Overall the service acceptable but their staff are bad. The trip were delay for about 30 minutes. The luggage compartment were used by the drivers for the extra private earning services... So ours have to keep inside the bus... This is odd.

5* experience but toilets were awfully unhygienic and speaker was broken, making a noise impossible to sleep to.

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.
