How to get from Hanoi to Hue

What About

Hue was the imperial capitol of the Nguyen Dynasty in Vietnam from 1802 until the communist revolution in 1945. The city sustained heavy damage during the last war but the imperial citadel, royal tombs and temple complex still attract both foreign and domestic visitors. Hue is situated on the always beautiful Perfume River and the peaceful city is a welcome change from the rush of Hanoi.

Traveling from Hanoi to Hue

Traveling from Hanoi to Hue can be quite an enjoyable trip and you will have many transportations options. The journey from Hanoi to Hue on land takes about 14 hours and can be done by bus or train. Unlike neighboring countries, the bus is usually not faster than train due to poor road conditions. Going from Hanoi to Hue by train will either give you the chance to view the beautiful scenery by day or get a good sleep by night. Hanoi to Hue by airplane is only an hour of flight time but neither airport is located near the cities and delays are to be expected on domestic flights.

From Hanoi to Hue by Train

Taking the train from Hanoi to Hue is very popular amongst our users and deserves special attention as it is serviced by two private railroad companies. These firms operate luxury cars which are attached to the Vietnam Railways trains running from Hanoi to Hue. The fastest trains run at night and make the trip from Hanoi to Hue in around 13 hours. These would be the SE1 and SE3 which depart at 7:30 and 10:00pm respectively and arrive in Hue at 9:00 and 10:30am. VIP Sleeper Cabins with 4 berths in each are available on Livitrans Express and Violette Express Train. These cabins are considerably cleaner and the staff more attentive than Vietnam Railways making them ideal for going from Hanoi to Hue by train. The luxury train operators will provide more comfortable sleeping arrangements and higher quality amenities than you are likely to find elsewhere. Livitrans and Violette Express berths for the route from Hanoi to Hue will cost about $75 for the slower train and $85 for the fastest .

Vietnam Railways also operates two day trains which can give you the chance to take in the scenery along the way but they are not serviced by any private train companies. These services depart at 9:00am and 1:10pm, arriving in Hue at 11pm and 4:00am. A hard seat on Vietnam Railways for getting from Hanoi to Hue will be about $25 but we recommend that you avoid both hard and soft seats for this trip if possible as they can get quite uncomfortable after a few hours. The price for a 1st class sleeper will be around $45 and should make for a much more enjoyable trip from Hanoi to Hue.

From Hanoi to Hue by Bus

To get from Hanoi to Hue by overnight bus is one option the budget traveler can consider. Small bus companies that operate between Hanoi and Hue have questionable service records with regards to cleanliness and safety and so we advise you to travel with a well known operator that has a history of serving foreign travelers. One such company is the Sinh Tourist which operates a sleeper bus from Hanoi to Hue that departs at 7:00pm and arrives at 8:00am. Customers have only sent good feedback for the service from Hanoi to Hue and the price is $13.50.

Getting Around

Hue is a fairly compact city and most attractions (except the royal tombs) will be within walking distance. Cyclos and motorbike taxis are common so ask your hotel about reasonable prices before heading out. To avoid confusion and conflict agree on a price beforehand and write the number (including all zeroes) on a piece of paper.

While not known for having as many scams as Hanoi, Hue has few major taxi companies and thus service can be hit or miss. All taxis should have a working meter but be generally aware of how to get to your destination to avoid being overcharged. Your best option may be having a hotel or restaurant arrange the taxi for you.

Bicycles and motorbikes are widely available for rent and can be a good option for getting around town since traffic is more manageable than in the big cities. Bicycles are rented out for a few dollars a day and motorbikes for under $10. Ask your hotel to arrange the rental.

Where to stay in Hue

Popular accommodations in Hue are clustered within a few blocks of the Perfume River across from the citadel. Their rates tend to be lower than Hanoi or Saigon and the quality comparable. It is usually not necessary to book far in advance but you should consult a calendar to ensure that your time in Hue does not coincide with a holiday as the city is a popular domestic tourism destination.

Activities in Hue

The imperial citadel in Hue attracts domestic and foreign visitors alike despite sustaining heavy damage during the American War. 20 structures remain on the site and you can spend several hours exploring it and the adjacent To Mieu temples. The site is near the Perfume River, across from most accommodations and guides are available should you want a detailed history.

To the south of Hue are the tombs of several emperors from the Nguyen Dynasty, each with a unique style inline with the story of the person buried. There are four prominent sites 8 to 12 kilometers away from the center of Hue and are within biking distance if you have good directions. Each tomb is a short walk from the river and you can hire a boat to take you on a tour for the day. Expect to pay a few dollars to enter the sites but they are well worth it.

The Thien Mu Pagoda is the official symbol of Hue and it’s tiered, octagon shaped tower is an icon recognized across Vietnam. The pagoda is on a hill overlooking the river 4 kilometers south of the citadel and can be reached by both bicycle and boat.

Onward travel from Hue

Several hours south of Hue by bus or train is the city of Danang and the nearby tourist attraction of Hoi An Town, a restored trading post dating back hundreds of years. The journey by train from Hue to Danang is considered especially beautiful and takes only three hours with a cost of $5 on Vietnam Railways. There are three trains daily but only the 10:30am departure will allow you to enjoy the scenery during daylight hours. To travel on to Hoi An you will need to catch a taxi from the train station or book a charter taxi to avoid being overcharged. The transfer takes about one hour and costs $40. The Sinh Tourist offers bus services at 8am and 1pm from Hue to Danang for $5 and continuing on from Danang to Hoi An for under $15.

Passenger reviews out of total 10,309 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.

★★☆☆☆
We travelled from Hanoi to Hue in train SE19 on carriage 10 (suppositely 1st class sleepers). Almost all 1st class carriages were new but not 10. It didn't even seem a 1st class carriage. The toilets are also in need of improvement. And by morning they were disguting. Matresses are terrible and fitting 4 people with bags inside one cabine is not an easy task. The train was so full that there were even people in the middle of the corridors sitting in benches or sleeping on the floor. We would not recommend this trip to friends.

Go for the middle of the carriage, as ends are a rough ride, but book early to get the middle. Cabin was clean and bright - new or refurbished carriage on SE1. Regular food trolleys of various kinds. A great way to feel Vietnam.

For the price of the ticket it’s worth the experience. Don’t expect luxury. Bed is hard but I managed to sleep thanks to ear plugs. Cabin is small and the train is old fashioned but again you get what you pay for so it’s basic. There were three of us and we had fun. The toilets aren’t great that’s true so take your own paper and soap. It’s not the Orient Express but if you take snacks, water, toilet paper and ear plugs then you’ll be fine. Just go with it!
Jan 15, 2019
train #SE1 VIP Sleeper 4x, Violette Express Train
★★★☆☆
Despite being told I needed to change my document from 12goasia to tickets with a barcode I didn't. I only needed to turn up at the Violette counter 1 hour before departure. The boarding process was good. The cabin was merely functional despite all the claims it was more luxurious than the standard 4 berth cabins. The toilets were fairly horrendous. Lots of coffee/tea/snacks vendors. My advice save your money and buy a standard 4 berth ticket and buy it from the station ticket office and save $+++

Dirty, cramped, crazy bus ride! Didn’t get the seats we had booked but to be honest we had the top ones at the back and this was better I guess than on the floor! Interesting experience overall...we did sleep most of the way though so that’s good! I wouldn’t necessarily reccomend the company but also it was cheap and we got where we needed to only 3 hours later than scheduled. The drivers did seem angry but also we don’t speak Vietnamese so if we did maybe we would have understood there occasional shouting! We survived! It could’ve been worse...but not much!

Beware of the scammers at the Hanoi train station. They will offer to take you to your train but they do not work there!! Do not go with them. Cabin was okay.

Didn’t use the toilet but was advised to take our own toilet paper ;) Worth the experience but would probably not do it again.

The night train experience is amazing. We travelled on Christmas Eve and the train staff up on a Christmas Party complete with visiting Santa, and we socialised with a lot of fellow travellers, sharing stories and drinks. The compartments are clean and tidy with everything you need for the night. Don’t expect a brilliant nights sleep however as the tracks are really bumpy and the carriages do clatter as the train goes along. But I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone travelling through Vietnam. The views after sunrise on the way to Hue are amazing!

Overall the experience was OK, but now - when we can compare to a lower class trains - it can be counted as a good one actually. Minuses: - the train shakes really hard, it’s hard to walk and not so easy to sleep - not very clean (1 cockroach seen, old stains on the sheets, the toilet was not super clean) - super noisy staff (especially in the morning)

Abbiamo preso due biglietti di prima classe con letti comodi ed invece erano durissimi, il materasso era molto sottile, la cuccetta non era riscaldata (la temperatura esterna era di circa 10 gradi con pioggia) e non c’era nemmeno una vera coperta (solo il copripiumone). Abbiamo dormito vestiti e con giubbotto addosso. Inoltre anche a noi il capotreno ha chiesto 200k per rimanere da soli nella cuccetta da 4 posti col vagone quasi vuoto. I bagni erano sporchi (ma in linea con lo standard).

The cabin is clean and comfortable, although it’s a bit small. Suitable for lean people below 178cm. The toilet at the end of the coach has a lock but it’s spoilt. Passengers who smoke could only do so along the corridor. However, the train crew maintain that the could only do so at the end of the corridor.

The train wasnt so good. When I booked I choose the lower berth only to find the receptionist says the agency didnt tell them. When we arrived at our berth there were tons of laundry under our bed so no space to put our luggage. The pillow was damp and the bed was solid as rock and not to mention the snack only very tiny wafer and little water bottle. The bathroom was filthy. .my experience with this train was disappointing conaidering it was expensive train.

Viajamos en primera clase donde se supone q las camas son cómodas, pero realmente eran muy duras, el tren hacía mucho ruido y se movía mucho también, fue difícil dormir. El baño es simplemente un horror. Ojo al dato también q un trabajador nos pidió 200k por dormir solos, dijo q no dejaría que nadie mas durmiera con nosotros, nos negamos y al final resultó que aún así viajamos solos. En fin, yo lo evitaría.

I knew what to expect and it was just fine! No bugs in sight and the washroom stayed relatively clean for a train washroom. Overall I'm glad I got to experience this, come with low expectations and an open mind.

The bus arrived bag on time to pick us up. Quite clean, cleaner than London busses anyway, and the seat/bed was comfortable enough to have a decent sleep. Driver did have very loud conversations but this is Vietnam and I think it is a standard. Bus actually arrived slightly early to Hue which is was very impressed with! I would recommend this Huong Long service

★★★★☆
Much better experience than expected. It was a bit confusing at the station with exchanging our voucher for tickets. Kept getting told to wait by the woman behind the desk. Then everyone started queuing to go onto platform and got tickets at that stage. We shared our cabin with two passengers who took up all the floor space with huge cases. We just had backpacks so kept them on our beds. So if you can afford it, buy 4 tickets for the whole cabin!! Got coke, water, a cake and banana. Beds were ok and we slept well. A pillow, thin duvet and blanket provided. There is a car to buy food and drink and also a food trolley goes along too. Toilets were kept clean although toilet roll was gone by the morning. Our departures and arrivals were bang on time.

12goAsia gets 5 stars for the ease and accuracy of booking. Train was a fun adventure, especially with kids. Definitely book the extra sleepers for yourself if you can. Beds are flat, though hard and short. Bathroom was OK. Not a good night sleep for sure, but a fun experience anyhow.

★★☆☆☆
To start, the signs in the trainstation were clear and the train departed in time. Soon we noticed that it was going to be a bumpy ride. Unfortunately the services on board were terrible. After 3 hours the toilets were discusting. The bumpy ride probably didn't help in the aiming of the men, but no cleaning was performed during the 14 hour ride and it went from bad to worse. The beds were rock hard and uncomfortable in stead of the described soft beds. The sheets however seemed clean. The breakfast that can be bought after departure was a very salty baguette with fried eggs, but off course nobody is obliged to buy it and i wouldn't recommend it. A positive note is that the train remained on schedule along the entire trip. Nevertheless the price is expensive for the given service.

I must say the train was old, felt rather dirty and funky. The bathrooms were not up to “vip” status. The bed were not soft nor were the sheets looking clean. The train left and arrived on time, the trip was fine overall - just not very “VIP” for the amount of money paid. The Hanoi train station was very nice and clean - I had high hopes!

Although the flight was delayed twice I still rate it positive, we got an email about the first delay so went to airport 2hours later and second delay was only 15minutes and we got a food voucher for lunch. The plane was delayed due to late arrival this happens everywhere, I would use this company again

The staff in the office was great - nice and helpful. Bus was comfortable and the ride was smooth. However, the steward/conducter in the bus was very rude, did not allow food in the bus, eventhough this rule was never mentioned by the staff in the office or in the list of rules on the bus and it seemed to apply only to foreigners, as vietnamese tourists could eat there without problems. He was also very careless with the luggage, he even put several bags of people who boarded the bus later on his seat and then slept on them (!!!) because he did not feel like putting them in the luggage space. The behaviour of the bus personnel really ruined what otherwise could have been a very pleasant experience.

The trip itself is very interesting, despite being slow (~50km/h average - however that is clearly indicated in the schedule). The S07 train is, however, in very bad shape and dirty, even the 2nd class A/C (A/C sometimes fails to work). It is worth for the experience.

Resonable couch but the pillows and blankets were already used. People who didn´t book the couch used it till somebody came whose got a ticket and then they went away. In the meantime they used the blankets and pillow. Managemant should look after that.

The beds were not uncomfortable! The sheets seemed clean. Though I did have to crush two cockroaches with my phone. The top bunks might be a little inaccessible to some as there is no ladder. The toilets are what you would expect. Not clean , but not dreadful - bearable. The bathroom had no western toilet, so prepare to crouch. Would recommend using when the train has stopped at a station!! One significant downside which is not the fault of the train company necessarily, a drunk man in our cabin kept making advances towards myself (a woman) and my female friend all night and when I tried to find someone to help us maybe move none of the staff cared. What ye gunna do!!

Booked 1st class soft sleeper. Bunks hard and short (about 5ft 10in), some cockroaches and ants in compartment. Toilets dirty after a very short time. I would highly recommend that you bring your own sleeping bag / sac and pillow case. Having travelled extensively by train I would not class this is a first class soft sleeper.

We did sleep well however got woken up several times due to the train movements. Toilets were fine at the beginning but around 5 am the western toilet was very dirty so went to the local one at the other side of the carriage which was much better. The pillows, sheets and duvet do not get replaced when someone leaves. The staff just make the bed nice so bedding is not fresh at all. There were 2 sinks to freshen up and boiled water available. Only 1 power socket available in the cabin. The ride was fine overall and we got to the destination safe and rested.

Despite joining the train at its start my bed was dirty with hairs on it and dusty/muddy marks. Additionally having guards shout down the corridors loudly at 6am when lots of passengers are sleeping is not ideal. Other than that the process was easy and the train was fairly comfortable and I could get some sleep.
