train #SE20 Cabin 2x, Vietnam Railways (Đường sắt Việt Nam), Mar 15, 2020
Great experience, we’d done intramural flights and sleeper buses. So thought we’d give this a try too.
2 person cabin was clean and comfortable, air con worked fine. They give you a pillow and thin quilt/blanket. Thick mattress with a clean sheet on as well.
Would use again but give the food amiss and take my own noodles (there’s a machine dispensing boiling water)
Toilets were a little grubby but quite useable
All in all a fun experience

Old train, nothing fancy but everything you need to get from a to b. We were lucky enough to get a 4 berth cabin to ourselves which was awesome. They do serve a cheap meal on the train which we didn't know about, it was pretty good $3.50aud for rice veg chicken and soup. You buy a little ticket from one guy and the food is served at around 6pm. Other than that there is a cart with coffee, beer and a few snacks. We did get woken at 5.20 to some god awful music blaring, nasty! At least we didn't miss our stop. Toilets are as bad as you could expect.

Everything went smoothly. I was pleased with how easy it was to book with 12go and on line check in went smoothly. The flight is bare bones but we knew that and is such a good price and it was on time. This is our 2nd time with both 12go and Vietnam Airlines. We will use both again in the future.

Everything was nice except toilett. It could be more clean. It should be without smoking compartment.

Was a great journey and bed were actually pretty comfortable, only downside was that the train moves around a tone and is extremely noisey, the bugs and cockroaches didn’t help either!

It was a pleasant trip from Da Nang to Hanoi with Vitjet Air. I booked my ticket with 12ho.asia without any problem.

Great flight from Da Nang to Noi BI via Vietjet. Glad to have booked it via 12go, hassle-free transaction to do all my local flight bookings in both Thailand and Vietnam. Thanks very much.
train #SE20 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Vietnam Railways (Đường sắt Việt Nam), Dec 30, 2019
The service for the cost is acceptable, but as 12go.com has written that we would have food, we were expecting to have it, but actually we had to pay for such a cup noodle and coffee.
Anyway, we slept well, the cabin was clean enough, the train operators were generally gentle and available.
I still suggest to use it for who want to save money, but better to choose 1st class if possible, the way to stay inside the cabin is not really comfortable, because is not possible to seat properly because the beds are to close each other and the upper one is also very difficult tl reach, fortunately I'm not so big.
Important to underline that the booking is for a single bad, not the whole cabin.

Not enough opportunities to buy bottled water.
Glad I tried it but wouldn't do it again

Beautiful scenery between DaNang & Hue via Hai Van pass. But train not first class by European standards. Bearable though. Did the journey twice because lost my passport & had to return to Hanoi. Different service on way to Da Nang - water & bananas & intermittent toilet rolls. Take some with you & flush toilet 2-4 times as it tends to fill up. If you’ve been to Glastonbury toilets aren’t so bad & you can use spray water to clean. Maximum speed of train is 70 kmph so journey is slow & clanking. It’s ok once twice was pushing it.

Not bad for a first experience. A bit noisy and the staff are quite rude but I think they're just trying to do their job.

Booking service was excellent. Emailed flight changes 24 hours in advance. Would not fly Vietjet again. 3 flighs all delayed by at least 30 minutes, 1 delayed by 5 hours. No concerns with the booking service
train #SE2 Cabin 2x, Vietnam Railways (Đường sắt Việt Nam), Nov 6, 2019
We had a private 2 bed cabin for the 15 hour journey. The beds were comfortable enough but sleeping was not easy to due the train movement and noise, this was to be expected though.
The toilet is ok but not the cleanest especially for females to use.
The free snack basket offered by the train in cabin was very poor, considering we paid the most expensive fee available, a tube of Pringles or pack of biscuits would be better.
Generally a good trip but I would not wish to do it often.

Took the SE2 sleeper 1st class upper bunk bought through 12go. Our ticket read car 12. Car 12 was closed and there was a lot of confusion about if we would be allowed on the train. The reason left on time. The bunk was very basic, air conditioning was cold, a few small cockroaches on the walls, toilets are dirty, food was chicken and rice served by ladle from a rolling cart onto a plastic tray. Our roommates kept the curtain closed to sleep the whole time. They just keep closing it. At 1400 I do not want to sit in a dark room. There is no chair or other place to sit. Stand in the hall only. There are USB ports in the bunk. Cigarette smoke came through the vents frequently We arrived on time to Hanoi. .... Priceless experience:)

Too cold but otherwise nice. The views from DaNang to Hue are spectacular, do that during the day.

Got upper bunk which you said you try to avoid. Got conflicting messages when I booked the trip. You stated my bank had refused payment and to contact them. Worst part of trip was booking with you which I had to pay to do. Terrible customer service

Easy booking process. Got exactly the sleeper berths we wanted. Instructions emailed with the tickets were perfect. I recommend the service for trains in Vietnam

My third time doing this journey, but my first time in a VIP sleeper. Great experience, super comfy. Toilets are unfortunately shared with all other 1st class sleepers and they are notoriously filthy.
The conductor on our train was rather rude, but usually they are nice ;)

We thought it is first class but it was a normal sleeper. No food on the train, dirty toilets

I took a train SE 2 from danang to hanoi. The train were delay 1 and half hour but the staff in the train station offer us to buy another ticket which will depart earlier than our train. We decided to wait for our train. We buy 1st class sleeper. We share the cabin with local but they were nice. Overall our experience were great. The train station is clean n cozy. Thanks to the aunty and uncle cleaner.

12goAsia booking service was fantastic. Very easy and efficient. The train wasn't bad either although the description of "1st class" is relative! We had been told that the SE20 trains weren't as modernised as the SE2, but we had exactly the same cabin style and facilities on both. The compartment was reasonably clean, bedding OK, USB and electrical points on each bunk and toilets reasonable. Water dispensers (hot and cold) in each carriage (we didn't use) and sinks for teeth cleaning, etc. We were lucky that our carriage was almost empty so noise wasn't an issue and there were no people sleeping in the corridors. Staff kept the train clean. All in all, a pretty decent journey that arrived on time :-)

Attendent was really good for keeping the carriage swept and tidy and toilet as clean as she could. Train it's self is very dirty, were having to kill bugs and cockroaches a lot of the time
train #SE2 Cabin 2x, Vietnam Railways (Đường sắt Việt Nam), Aug 13, 2019
The experience was fantastic. Train was late. Waiting room was hot and noisy.
Everything after that was fantastic
We booked a private cabin for two. It was clean. Comfortable. Private. Exactly as we wanted.
As we have done quite a few trains overnight we knew there could be a lack of food. We took bread rolls eith us and some cheese. And at the station we bought boiled eggs. We took teabags snd some sugar. So we were ready if we werent keen on the train food.
The scenery is wonderful.
We took the afternoon train so we saw the fabulous coastline of Vietnam. The climb theough the mountains at a leisurely pace will stay with us forever.
You have to book way in advance to get a private cabin.
I know flying is quicker and probably cheaper, but this experience is something worth doing.
train #SE10 1st Class Sleeper, Vietnam Railways (Đường sắt Việt Nam), Aug 13, 2019
3.5 stars. It was comfortable. Aircond works well. But unfortunately you could smell cigarette smokes from outside. (Didn't think anyone was smoking in the carriage or cabin and the windows were sealed & couldn't be opened. So ventilation was a problem.) Also if it wasn't cigarette smoke it was the fuel or a mixture of chemical smells. Maybe it was just because I had the top bunk. Unsure if all was good at the bottom bunk.
And there was no dining carriage/area for those who just wanted to sit & watch the scenery roll by rather than sit on their bed. Especially if you were in the top bunk and had to awkwardly crane your neck to be able to glimpse out the window. But it was a comfortable sleep compared to if you were on a plane.
The view of the Vietnamese countryside from the train was a redeeming factor.
For a 17hr ride, it wasn't bad. But tried it once and may just fly next time.

train #SE2 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Vietnam Railways (Đường sắt Việt Nam), Aug 7, 2019
We were extremely disappointed. The car was extremely small and our beds were the top bunks with no room to sit up or move. If that wasn’t enough, there were small cockroaches running around the beds. The restaurant car was filled with employees smoking and very unwelcoming. It also was delayed by 1.5hrs in leaving and arriving. I have traveled by train in Malaysia and Thailand and have been very happy with the service, but this was not worth the expensive ticket.
