Good food sold on the train on little carts. AC worked fine. A little bit noisy, but nice experience overall

Мне понравилось, хотелось опробовать вьетнамские железные дороги. Чисто, по расписанию, проводник приветливый. Особо поспать не удалось, потому что как-то сильно трясло и потом все время волнуешься, что проедешь свою станцию. В этом смысле конечно лучше ехать подольше, например часов 17. Смыв в туалете не работал, но можно было воспользоваться туалетом в соседнем вагоне. В вагоне прохладно, кондиционер работал исправно. Разносят бесплатную воду в бутылках.

First class sleeper was not ‘first class’. It was all ok and functional but bedding was not particularly clean, the carriage was old and a bit dirty and the toilet ... well, train toilets are typically poor all over the world but this was fairly awful. We did 5 hours - can’t imagine what 30 would be like! Vietnam train tickets are not expensive relative to UK.

Took vip 4 sleeper. We were 3 adults from same family. A father and young daughter had 4th bunk in cabin. Turned our lights out and slept reasonable well. It's train travel, so you do have a bit of noise and rumble and tumble, train stopped twice for 30 minutes each time, we got a knock 30 minutes before our station came up. Would definitely travel again my train, once dawn came up it was amazing traveling through towns and waving to the locals..

Over Chinese New Year period train heavy booked took what was available and got offered better sleeper seats by conductor. They provided a service which would be acceptable in most countries. Very content customers. Great economical way to travel.

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.
