Hanoi to Dong Hoi Destination Reviews

We booked a 1st class sleeper cabin, the cabin itself was okay. However, the AC couldnt have been turned off so it was freezing cold on the top bed. The worst was that the AC was blowing this mouldy air into the cabin. I still have a sore throat. The wc was dirty but we expected this, it was not a surprise, there was no toiletpaper, which i would expect on the 1st class. The train was ca. 10 minutes late, so it was okay.

Everything was perfect! In time departure and arrival, clean bathroom, luxurious car with snacks. Would highly recommend this and spending a few bucks more was the right call for me personally. Slept like a baby. Bring ear protection to ensure good sleep, but this is to be expected on a train.
Train #SE19 VIP Sleeper 4x, Laman Express, Sep 5, 2023
Comfortable journey in a first class cabin with good beds to sleep some hours. Friendly staff. Can recommend taking the train (with first class beds, 4 people per cabin).
