The carriage itself was fine, but the toilets were awful. All 4 around our carriage were blocked by the end of the journey and we had to go up several carriages to find one that worked.

Actual flight was fine, everything went smoothly. Only issue was that the booking confirmation from 12Go did not have the confirmation the airline needed although this was sorted by the staff at the airport.

Wir sind mit dem SE1 von Da Nang nach Saigon gefahren. Wir können die ganzen schlechten Bewertungen hier nicht verstehen. Die 4er Kabine war bequem, die Laken waren frisch und es gab eine saubere Decke und ein Kissen. Die Toiletten waren für einen Zug ok, von der sauebrkeit vergleichbar mit deiner deutschen RE Bahn. Für uns war es ein super Erlebnis, wir hätten aufgrund der schlechte Bewertungen uns fast für einen Flug entschieden und sind super froh mit dem Zug gefahren zu sein. Einzig der Service von 12go asia war nicht sehr hilfreich.. Hatten uns extra die beiden unteren Betten gebucht. Ohne Nachricht etc. haben wir dann jedoch die zwei oberen zugeteilt bekommen. Schade, da man dort nicht so gut aus dem Fenster schauen kann.

Very dissapointed by this expierience. We booked 1st class downstairs beds. When we boarded the train we had had upstair bunk, with a full family 'downstairs'. They kept the curtains closed all the time and took many food items and bags with them. We paid so much for our ticket but it was not worth it, 2 class would have been just the same expierience but way cheaper. Everything is dirty, nobody speaks english...
