Passenger reviews out of total 3,544 passengers who traveled with us on this route.

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

train #SE3 VIP Sleeper 4x, Livitrans Express
★★★★☆
The train was a lot better than we had anticipated. I had read reviews staying it was difficult to exchange tickets at the station, however when we arrived there was a lady who directed us into our cabin (a VIP livitrans 4-sleeper) that we would be sharing with two others. We were very lucky as the train was empty, so one of the staff asked us if we would like to move to another cabin free of charge, which we had to ourselves - a very welcome surprise! The airconditioning was very strong, so I would recommend bringing along a jumper/extra blanket as it can get quite uncomfortably cold. The beds were quite hard, but comfortable enough. The toilets were as expected of train travel, although the staff did make an effort to clean these regularly - just take tissues with you just in case. We didn’t try any of the food from the food cart, but highly recommend bringing your own snacks. Overall a pleasant trip - if you take some headphones to drown out the sound and a jumper to keep you warm, you can get a decent nights sleep and enjoy some amazing views. Would recommend over flying.

Was impressed with the Livitrans carriage and slept surprisingly well on the train. The journey was stunning between Hue and Da Nang. However we struggled to swap our voucher at the station for our ticket and was left stood a while feeling anxious about whether anybody was going to show up. We also had to change cabin at Hue despite the carriage not being full. If these issues were better organised I would give a 5*.

The boy looking after cabins was very dishonest. He told all the people in our carriage that they were sharing but if you paid him 30 dollars he would give you one on your own. Nobody's was sharing. He then pulled our locked door pulling our handle off demanding our bedding while we were asleep and 3 hours before arrival.

★★★☆☆
Pros: Good value, train left and arrived on time, interesting way to journey with lots of locals and some very nice views on the way into Danang. Neutral: Toilets not as bad as expected based on other reviews, but they definitely weren't great. Cabin temperature was ok for me, a bit cold but not bad. Cons: Bed was rock hard to the point where it was difficult for me to sleep, so I was uncomfortable most of the night. Very little room for luggage or to move about. Did spot a few cockroaches but not too many.

We enjoyed the nighttrain from Hanoi - Danang. With 2 kids and 2 adults it's easy to travel. Bring soms food and drinks yourself! Beds are very hard. Read before about the aircon, so we were prepared, but it was not that cold I expected. We really enjoyed the views. It was a good experience!

★★★★☆
At £33pp, the overnight train offered not only an adventure and cheap travel but also a bed for the night (saving on hotel costs too). It wasn’t a bad journey, arrived on time and was quite clean. We shared a 4 bunk cabin with a Vietnamese family. The children were lovely and their parents were very conscientious...making sure they didn’t wake us too early. Comfort wise...if you see it as an upgrade from an airplane chair on a 16 hour flight, you’ll be fine. Recommendations; that you take some bread rolls or noodle pots as if you miss the food cart at 06:30, you’ll have to wait until you get off the train for breakfast and book a bottom bunk...oh and use Mai Linh taxi (green one) outside of the station to Hai An....cost us d450,000 to the hotel and the driver was very friendly.

train #SE19 VIP Sleeper, Vietnam Railways
★★★★☆
Journey was easy and on time, fairly easy to get to sleep but not very comfortable bed. Staff would come and tell us when our stop was because the announcement was in Vietnamese. Toilets were smelly and needed to be cleaned, with no toilet paper. No running water in some toilets. Also when someone left our cabin we saw the staff remake the bed but didn't change the bed sheets. Overall not a bad way to travel but not the most comfortable.

It's necessary to say the things in English as well, since most of people in the train is foreign. Someone needs to clean the toilet. We should be able to choose our bed (bottom or top). The company needs to sell biscuits or sandwiches for breakfast.

Not sure if it was just the car we were in or the whole train, but it was so loud! There was a loud metallic knocking that began around midnight and continued until we arrived at 8AM. I also think most of the food ran out before they got to us, we were the very last cabin in the train.

train #SE7 VIP Sleeper, Vietnam Railways
★★★★☆
The first class sleeper was comfortable, and we had it to ourselves. Getting on the train was difficult as we had to carry our 4 suitcases up and down stairs. The food service staff were polite and helpful and spoke English. The train crew were simply rude. I have not been shoved or shouted at so much in years. We had to track down someone when we thought we were near Danang, there was no announcement. That man simply shoved my elderly wife and shouted something we could not understand. We loved the scenery; but the service was pretty poor.

Advertised as 1st class however expect a very basic compartment with absolutely no frills at all. The dinner offered was a chicken rice combo which was delicious and at £6 for four of us was great value.

The ehh "1st class" experiencewas ehh haha a bit of a joke, kinda going back to the UK in the 40s trains. It is a very bumpy ride so if noise stops you sleeping, its maybe not the best option for you. Oh and the toilet hane broke haha so lots of us got stuck in the bathroom, i had to rescue a room mate at 3am! However, its a cool experience if you wanna travel back in time a bit,and the views in the morning were amazing!

Journey was great, felt like we had only been on the train for a few hours as we slept the whole time. Travelled ‘first class’ far from British first and the mattress was a little on the hard side. Great for travellers and like minded people - not a luxury experience but was great for the price!

- Very dirty compartment. - Floor not cleaned since 1980. - Extremely hard beds. - Rough track. - Almost impossible to fit in the wc and hardly able to close the door except when balancing on the toilet lid. - No toilet paper. + On time. + Good breakfast sandwiches. VIP sleeper as designation is a joke. It should be called basic accomodation.

Some cabins were newer, some older. I was not lucky enough to be placed in new part of the train, despite I ordered 1st class and there were 4 beds per cabin as stated, the cabin itself was old and bathroom was even older... perhaps I'll be luckier next time.

Better than I expected. I slept well and there was a decent bathroom. Good cabin mates too. It’s a good idea to bring your own sleeping sheet. I should add that the train was on time and staff very organized. If facilities were better, I would give it a higher rating.

We took this trip with my children aged 15 and 12, meaning we had a cabin to ourselves. This is not for fair weather travellers or pampered children (there is no wifi). If you are happy to eat Vietnamese food, there is food on the train and beer too which is very cheap. My advice would be to bring your own toilet roll and some ear plugs. The train rocks and rolls its way through the night, which did, in the end give me some motion sickness, not something I usually suffer from. This is an experience with some fabulous scenery but don't expect to get much sleep! But bite the bullet and do it anyway!

It was an interesting journey - the train wasn't VIP but we are experienced travellers and value the experience over the level of comfort. The guards worked hard to keep the old facilities usable, and we enjoyed getting a coffee in the dining car in the morning as the journey unfolded. Not for those who do want luxury

train #SE3 VIP Sleeper 4x, Violette Express Train
★★★☆☆
The printed ticket told us to go straight to the coach and show the ticket to the ticket-taker. Unfortunately, the railway personnel at the gate would not let us on to the platform because we did not have an 'official' ticket with a bar code they could scan. And therefore we were told to wait for someone to show up. Someone did eventually show up, with a large tour group and we thought this person was their tour guide as she was not wearing any kind of official uniform and seemed to be talking only to the big group. Only later did we find out that this person worked for Livitrans/Violette and had the power to let us in and tell us our coach and berth numbers. So after much drama and wondering if we will get on the train, we finally did get on it. So the system works, sort of, if you are patient and know what to look for. Livitrans and Violette can make it a lot easier by having thier personnel wear clearly marked clothing so they can be identified. Also, assigning us berth numbers before hand would have helped so we could have planned if our family were to be split up (we were not, but others on our train were). The train ride was fine. The air conditioner was on pretty strong in the middle of winter and we were given only a thin duvet cover (not the duvet itself). My wife and daughter were very cold at night and I raided the staff's compartment to get more duvet covers for them. Why they cannot provide a blanket that is thick enough to withstand the AC is a mystery to me. Eat before getting on the train and bring as much food as you can with you. The food on the train is below mediocre. Also bring enough water. The staff on the train is helpful, but speak very little English or any other foreign language - take that into account. If you traveling between Hue and Danang during the day, the scenery is beautiful. That makes the trouble of the train ride worth it. Don't let these types of problems deter you from taking the train. They do get resolved eventually - you just have to be mentally prepared to deal with them.

Train left on time and arrived on time. Cabin was clean and tidy, traveling 1st class VIP. Complimentary drinks and fruit were available, but would still recommend taking your own snacks. Not as smooth as Bangkok to Chiang Mai train. None of the staff spoke English. For some extraordinary reason we were woken at 7am in the middle of nowhere! Our exclusive cabin was no longer exclusive when two passengers joined us in Hue!

The two stars certainly do not mean that you should not go. It is just a match of stars according ti the standard of the train SE1 and the service provided.

★★☆☆☆
VIP did not feel like VIP. Yes we got one free soda, water, banana and a bread roll. But besides that the bed was hard and the room a/c was very cold. The toilets were disgusting, seat and floor wet and lack of toiletpaper. The staff was friendly, but no one could any english. The best help was a phone with google translate. The “restaurant” in the first wagon only serves noodles and the room is messy and not very clean. Our trip was a 16 hour long trip from Hanoi to Danang, sadly it ended up being 22 hours with a lot of waiting between stations and a switch to a bus and back to a train just before Da Nang due to flooded tracks. More informations in english during the tour would have been apreciated. Advise is to take an airplane instead of waisting many hours in what must have felt like being in prison. Sorry!

Really comfortable journey on a nice bed. I slept really well on the journey and the train had everything I needed including power socket. The only negative for me was that the quality of food was really poor. Avoid the chicken soup.

We enjoyed our adventure! There were 4 of us, so we had a cabin to ourselves. The beds were quite hard, but it was only 1 night. The toilet was fine. Washroom also fine. The scenery in the morning was beautiful. We had lots of fun on the train.

Generally satisfactory but needed better direction to carriage and cabin. Please get rid of non train staff from hassling us with our baggage on the platform and wanting payment for directing us to our carriage. Cabin temperature was just slightly too cool. Would certainly take same train again.

The trip would have been perfect if: - although we traveled on 1st class, the cabin was full of cockroaches and a mouse was runnuning up and down in the car - the aircon was freezing, no option to switch it off or at least to set it to a higher temperature Beside these problems the trip was ok, we arrived on time and the cabin was "clean". The view is beautiful when the train is approaching Da Nang (last 1,5 hour of the trip) Don't use the buffet car, this is the source of the above mentioned creatures. I would only recommend for such people who likes that type of adventures and do not fear to sleep in a fridge with disgusting animals.

We enjoyed the journey but we're confused on boarding as we were directed to the Violette carriage and thought we would be in the livitrain carriage. It would have been good to know our carriage before we embarked. The main problem was the very cold temperature in the upper bunk and the cotton 'blanket' was not sufficient. It was very difficult to sleep when the air con was so very cold. But the train journey overall was wonderful and the journey along the coast I the last few hours of the journey was simply spectacular.

Don't forget: - warm clothes (aircon is freezing) - earplugs (lots of noisy people smoking en talking in corridors) - cleaning wipes (to clean te toilet before use, very filthy) - toilet paper (the one rol that is standing there is covered with piss) - food (or you live on grose coffee and pringles) - clean sheet or blanket (or you sleep under a used one) If you got the above list you will have a marvelous trip! Lovely vieuws! Good sleep! Nice people all around you! Enjoy your adventure!

Train on time. No issues with the ticket at all. If you have kids the prices are different check this before booking.

Overall a great trip. We both slept well and enjoyed the amazing scenery. We took plenty of provisions though there is a snack trolley. It's definitely worth making sure you have the lower bunks - you can use them as seats and there's a table for eating. Our guard was running an unofficial upgrade scam - a cabin to yourself for 30 dollars. He wouldn't come down in price.

Not the worst overnight train I've ever been on but close! The reviews are fairly accurate; these trains are not the cleanest, the air conditioning means you freeze in the night, the toilets may be western style but they are filthy and stink almost as bad as the ones in India and the noise from fellow passengers and the train requires headphones or earplugs to get any sleep at all. We were in first class and luckily sharing with another British couple so locked the door to the cabin almost as soon as we left Hanoi. Apparently children under 12 travel free so a number of the cabins in our coach had many more occupants than expected and the children were very noisy, running freely along the corridors, banging on doors and walls until well after 10pm and again from about 5am. The number of people in each cabin meant that a lot of the adults were also out in the corridor talking loudly... The blanket and pillows are reused without being washed between passengers, this is something that didn't even happen in India where they at least provided pillowcases which were changed each time someone left the train - luckily I had read the reviews so had a shawl which I used to cover the pillow and wore full length pjs tucked into socks with a cardigan over the top to protect against the dirty sheet and the cold! Adverts and reviews differ so it might be useful to know that on the SE1 train there was no free wifi and no meals were offered, though a woman sat at the end of the carriage with a trolley selling crisps and popcorn (when she was awake) and opened our door to ask if we wanted coffee at about 6am. Therefore it may be useful to eat before boarding the train and purchase a few items for breakfast as you'll no doubt be awake early! The views in the morning between Hue and Danang are stunning and seeing the sunrise was pretty but at £43 each it's a long, expensive and uncomfortable way of travelling. We were due to get an overnight train from Danang to HCMC but decided to have another night in Hoi An then fly (only £60 each when booked the day before). If you are backpacking and / or watching every penny then the trains in Vietnam will do their job but otherwise I'd recommend flying as they were very disappointing, particularly in comparison to the similarly priced Thai trains.

Pleasantly surprised, travelled with my husband, 2 daughters 11 & 9, we ate before boarding and just took snacks and that was sufficient. The food trolley goes past often if you need anything more. Beds were quite comfy, we all managed a good sleep, the kids slept 10 hours. Only complaint really was the toilet which we had been warned about so we took disinfectant wipes etc and limited our water intake.

Cannot complain - expectations met due to through research. Trains are basic but serviced and maintained. Staff friendly and helpful despite little English. Soft berth not that soft but surviveable. Recommend at least one train experience in Vietnam.
