Hanoi to Hai Phong Destination Reviews

We were not well informed that the station we arrived at was not the main station of Hai Phong..
Train #LP5 2nd Class AC seats only, Vietnam Railways (Đường sắt Việt Nam), Sep 19, 2022
Super-simple method of low-cost travel. We took the 6am train from Hanoi to Haiphong and we’re impressed with the ease and speed of the process. No issues at all. If you don’t need luxury for a quick ride, I highly recommend this leg of the journey. *Pay attention to where you are on your map. No one spoke English (tried to order Coke = big fail) and we didn’t understand the train conductor (at all) when he would shout out the stop name. We expected Haiphong to be an actual station (like Hanoi), and we almost missed getting off. We took cab to Ha Long from Haiphong, BUT shuttles were waiting outside, all of whom asked if we wanted to hop on. Wish we hadn’t pre-booked the cab as the shuttle was way cheaper (and we had the slowest cab driver on the planet). Looking forward to our train back to Hanoi!

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.
