Hanoi to Ninh Binh Destination Reviews

Train seat was comfortable, departed on time and arrived only a few minutes late. Food and drinks were able to be purchased on the train.
Train #SE5 2nd Class AC seats only, Vietnam Railways (Đường sắt Việt Nam), Sep 16, 2023
Theoretically the train had air con but in reality everyone fell asleep because it was like sitting in the blast from a hairdryer. One window fell open, which pretty much cancelled the frail attempts of the AC, and all the windows were dirty and had grilles over them so it wasn't easy to see outside.

Train left and arrived (on the minute) punctuality. 3 different stewards came 2 times with different drinks, snacks and food. Seats were very comfortable and had very much legroom.

Train #SE5 2nd Class AC seats only, Vietnam Railways (Đường sắt Việt Nam), Oct 25, 2022
Las cabinas estaban sucias, a excepción del cambio de sábanas no parecía que hubieran limpiado entre pasajeros. Por lo demás el viaje normal con sus turbulencias. Las cortinas de tren tapan bastante la luz por si quieres hacer el trayecto durmiendo, la cama bastante dura pero cómoda dentro de lo que cabe. Los responsables de tren nos indicaron bastante bien nuestra ubicación y cuando bajarnos.
Train #SE7 1st Class Sleeper, Vietnam Railways (Đường sắt Việt Nam), Sep 10, 2022
Very convenient and easy

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.
