Bus VIP-Class, HAV Limousine (HAV Limousine), Oct 3, 2020
I called to confirm pick location had changed and they hung up on me and would no longer pick up my calls after several attempts. I was lucky the visa office informed me of the new pick up location and the hotel manager confirmed it when we arrived.

Too hot

Comfortable seats. Easy to navigate and little fuss. The train was 15 minutes late in to Da Nang but because of single track streches on the route, the lateness of a train coming up from Da Nang caused us to wait for a little longer on route so it could pass. Cheap, effective, comfortable way to travel

The train windows were dirty and the seat was broken. The ride was pretty bumpy but it got me there. Pictures of the amazing views were limited because the windows were so dirty.

I'm an expat living in Da Nang. On a recent trip to Hue, my wife and I decided to forgo the bus and try the train service from Hue to Da Nang. We heard it was "rustic" and "authentic." This turned out to be true, but only in the pejorative sense. When we got our tickets, the only seats available were the 1st class sleeper cars which advertised soft beds and clean sheets. What we received was anything but: the beds were dirty and covered with hairs from the previous occupants. Food wrappers were still in the rooms. The beds were hard as rocks. The room was full of mosquitos. This trip gets two stars only because the coastal route around Hai Van Pass was pretty. But now that I've seen it, I won't take the train again. The bus is cheaper, faster, and somehow cleaner, even with old food wrappers on the floor and "grandpa" picking his nose in the seat behind you. The only possible benefit I can see to taking the train is that it runs ten times a day, but even then ours was three hours late getting to its destination. Recommended only as a novelty—unfortunately, one without much redeeming charm.

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.
