perfect, booked a train trip and paid online, printed ticket and everything went smoothly
LM
train #SE19 1st Class Sleeper, Laman Express, Mar 23, 2020
Would do it again!
MG
train #SE19 1st Class Sleeper, Laman Express, Mar 23, 2020
There is no charm to the Vietnamese trains system and really no reason to prefer it to air transportation.
CM
train #SE19 VIP Sleeper 4x, Laman Express, Mar 12, 2020
Great service and nice touch with the free drinks and pastries. The cabin was nice and clean and we both had a reasonable nights sleep.
LR
train #SE19 VIP Sleeper 4x, Laman Express, Mar 10, 2020
Overall trip was pretty comfortable, we had enough room to store our bags and loved the complimentary welcome drinks/water and breakfast however toilet paper was not replaced once on a 13 hour journey and when we asked for water we got told we had to pay for it even though our ticket said water would be “free flow” complimentary.

train #SE19 VIP Sleeper 4x, Laman Express, Mar 9, 2020
Very comfortable trip, beds are OK (a little small for some). There are some drinks (water, coffee, tea, beer) and a small breakfast (cake and banana). Overall great experience.

train #SE19 VIP Sleeper 4x, Laman Express, Feb 10, 2020
Pretty comfortable and clean with good breakfast and snack provisions, but it's still quite squishy between four people and your back will get stiff from the bumpiness of the train ride. Toilets are shared with the whole carriage and don't seem the most sanitary. WiFi is incredibly slow too so we ended up using our mobile data.

flight Economy, VietJet Air, Feb 5, 2020
We waited a very long time in the bus before we could get off to board the plane. There was a delay and the bus was cramped. Plane was also delayed but worth the price.
MD
flight Economy, Vietnam Airlines, Feb 5, 2020
Great experience - quick and painless check in and communication levels were great. Flight was comfortable and we got there in under an hour!

train #SE19 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Vietnam Railways, Jan 23, 2020
Lovely welcome drink and service at Mango Hotel. Very nice refreshments in the cabin. Comfy beds, not a bad sleep when you get used to the rocking. Overall a good service from Lamen Express. Booking process from 12go was very good and staff respond quickly to messages
JM
Bus Standard AC, Hoang Long, Jan 21, 2020
From what we heard about this bus company it was really OK. We probably got lucky. Bus was only half full, so we got space and we had only hour delay (on 13h trip it is a huge success in my mind). The staff were not friendly but they did their job.

The journey went smoothly and the drivers were very friendly. It only would be nice if we would have been informed at the bus station in Hanoi that the bus was on its way, but an hour late.

ZC
train #SE1 1st Class Sleeper, Vietnam Railways, Dec 21, 2019
Our coach did not exist and had to wait a short while why we were allocated another one. Room basic but had what we needed - beds functional, AC and USB ports worked. Toilet ok - better than I was expecting. Train noises but managed some sleep.
LP
train #SE19 VIP Sleeper 4x, Laman Express, Dec 20, 2019
We had our own cabin for four people. The bottom bunk is low and it was hard to get a medium suitcase underneath it. The upper storage shelf will easily hold four small carry on bags. There is an attendant for each car. All beverages and snacks in the cabin are included (no extra charge) the smell of cigarette smoke comes through the door. The air conditioning turns on and off randomly so that it’s ether very cold or muggy. The beds include pillows and thick blankets. We traveled with our two boys ages 10 & 12 and they enjoyed it. We arrived in Hue on time. Thanks,
PB

It was very expensive for what it was. Disappointing not the VIP first class we were expecting
NM
train #SE19 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Vietnam Railways, Dec 10, 2019
Overall a really good experience. Booking through 12goasia was easy and the train ride itself was very smooth. Being on the top bunk got a little bit uncomfortable after 13 hours but overall a good experience!
NM
train #SE1 1st Class Sleeper, Vietnam Railways, Dec 10, 2019
Easy to book with 12go Asia. Train cabin was ok.... Not terribly clean but also not terribly dirty. No snacks or water given by Vietnam Railways like other providers (but they are also the cheapest). Train was on time. One cockroach. Bathrooms we're not super clean but they had soap.
TK
train #SE3 1st Class Sleeper, Vietnam Railways, Dec 6, 2019
Nice and clean.
VV
train #SE3 1st Class Sleeper, Vietnam Railways, Dec 6, 2019
The trip would have been nicer was it not for the cockroaches nest in our cabin. They were small. But everywhere. Killed one and five minutes later another one appeared. Tried to get some sleep. But then ine just crawled over my face ;(. Apart friom that. Toilet was nice and cabin was good size.
LP
train #SE7 2nd Class AC seats only, Vietnam Railways, Dec 5, 2019
Perfectly on time, food and drink cheap and for all the day. Assistants of the train kind and helpful. Not really cleaned, toilet less :( quite noisy!
AH
train #SE1 1st Class Sleeper, Vietnam Railways, Dec 1, 2019
Quite loud but otherwise nothing to complain. We are family of 4 (two small kids , 3 years and 10 months).
AH
train #SE1 1st Class Sleeper, Vietnam Railways, Nov 28, 2019
In most ways the trip went exactly to plan. The SE1 train left Hanoi right on time, and arrived in Hué at the expected time too. The beds were relatively comfortable compared to the 2nd and 3rd class options, and there were many charging points in the sleeper compartment. First class in Vietnam is definitely different to the equivalent in more developed countries but it served our purpose - we are a family travelling with two young boys (8 & 6). The main negative was that there were some small cockroaches in our compartment - easily managed - but unexpected, and unusual for us.

Check in and boarding excellent and stress free! Welcome snacks great, could have provided one more water per passenger for the long journey. Light breakfast excellent also. Great bathroom amenities, kept clean throughout journey. Unfortunately Wi-fi was not working during trip. Beds were uncomfortable for a deluxe room - very hard mattress. Overall a very good trip!

How to get from Hanoi to Hue by Train

Taking a train to get from Hanoi to Hue is a safe, fast, and scenic option to travel the country. On certain routes, there are multiple train departures per day every 10 to 15 minutes. This is typical for intercity travel, while for long distance train routes there are fewer scheduled departures – plan ahead to choose the one that fits your itinerary best.

For long distance train journeys, we recommend reserving your tickets at least a few days ahead of your travel date. Buying train tickets via our online booking system will allow you to choose and reserve the best Hanoi to Hue tickets.

Buying your tickets online will help you secure the trip on the selected date and avoid queuing at the station.. When travelling on weekends and holidays it is recommended to reserve tickets much earlier due to a much higher demand. During high season, train tickets sell out quickly – do book as early as you can.

How far is it from Hanoi to Hue?

Travelling by train, the distance from Hanoi to Hue is 463 miles. Before setting
on for a train journey, have a look at the map to find out what tourist spots or landmarks you will pass by – maybe they are worth a quick stop?

How long does it take to get from Hanoi to Hue by Train?

Travel time from Hanoi to Hue is estimated to be about 12h 27m. Trains ensure the fastest time to travel by land. As normally there is no congestion, the speed of travel is more or less constant and stops at train stations are rather short, train is almost always one of the quickest and safest ways to get from Hanoi and Hue.

The most important thing that may affect train travel time is the type of train. Ordinary trains travel at a speed of about 40 mph or 65 km/h to 65 mph or 105 km/h. Some intercity trains with shorter distances between stations run slower than 40 mph. Even with these low speeds, it can still be faster than commuting by car, bus or taxi.

The speed of express trains can reach up to 100 mph or 160 km/h. Modern high-speed trains can run at speeds exceeding 250 mph or 400 km/h.

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

How much does it cost to get from Hanoi to Hue by Train?

The train ticket price from Hanoi to Hue varies depending on the types of trains or carriages available.

Some trains feature different types of carriages, seats and berths offering various amenities and level of comfort.

Basic passenger trains which are often non-air-conditioned and have wooden, hard or old seats are normally cheap. Premium or luxury trains and coaches have a higher ticket price but are equipped with air-conditioning, toilets, and large soft seats with sufficient legroom to make train rides comfortable.

Considering the distance travelled, train is the most affordable means of transport. Also, ticket prices include 2 or 3 bags – sometimes even more – per passenger.

Hanoi to Hue timetable

Trains are great for long-distance travel. Double-check your travel itinerary and use the Hanoi to Hue timetable above with train departure times and arrival times to find the best train for your route.

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.
