Hanoi to Hoi An Destination Reviews

Bus Semi Sleeper, Grouptour (Công ty du lịch quốc tế Grouptour), Sep 14, 2019
Took this bus from Hanoi to Hoi an in Vietnam. Driver was late picking us up from the travel agents and we were some of the last to arrive at the bus and therefore were right at the front, although this didn’t seem like a bad place to be as it is less crowded and there is less property lying around. But you’re continuously woken by the driver beeping the horn, the driver and assistant talked very loudly throughout the night, they make A LOT of stops to pick up packages/people etc and the driver also smoked throughout the night which was unpleasant. The beds are quite comfortable but if you’re over 5 ft 7 you’re really going to struggle to get comfy or sleep. The toilet is boiling hot and not the cleanest, it is also very small and is difficult to use the toilet in a moving bus. There is no soap or toilet roll so bring your own. The driver also drove erratically throughout the night and my seatbelt didn’t work. We also got woken up abruptly about 5.30 and where told to change busses with little information given on why. Good points were aircon works very well! Beds Appeared clean. Drive goes quite quick considering it’s a long one. Driver makes a lot of stops. Would probably travel this way again as it is cheap but be prepared!
Bus Semi Sleeper, Grouptour (Công ty du lịch quốc tế Grouptour), Aug 20, 2019
The minibus from tour guide office arrived late meaning we got to the sleeper bus last and had very little choice of seats. So we were right at the front by the driver. Driver smoked on bus which made it smell and also seemed to be picking up random people who sat on steps on steps talking loudly throughout the night with the lights occasionally being turned on too... resulting in not getting much sleep. Did arrive at final destination an hour early though which was good.

A basic bus, which got us from A to B in time. The bus was quite dirty and the driver drove quite erratically, even for Vietnamese standards. WiFi worked though. Good option for those on a budget!
Bus Semi Sleeper, Grouptour (Công ty du lịch quốc tế Grouptour), Dec 2, 2018
Comfortable, however extremely rude driver on first leg, a wonderful guy on the 2nd leg. Info as to when the 2nd leg was due would have been grand, as we hung around for 30 mins when we could have gone grabbed some food. For £10 including a nights accommodation its grand
Bus Standard AC, Grouptour (Công ty du lịch quốc tế Grouptour), Jul 3, 2018
Kind of scary cramped and certainly a one of a kind experience but we got there two hours early and it was cheap so can’t complain! There is WiFi on board but no plugs and very little room for Bags inside the coach! It’s certainly memorable, enjoy

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.
