Passenger reviews out of total 5,565 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.

★★★☆☆
The bed was quite comfortable but the smell in the train was pretty unpleasant. Also the toilets were old and dirty. I paid 500k dongs but my tickets costed only 338k dongs as stated in the e ticket. It is normal to pay an extra fee for the booking service but almost 50 % is way too high.

★★☆☆☆
They didn't allow us to have the seats we especially asked for. "Same, same" they kept on saying. Also, they dropped us in the middle of nowhere, outside the city, on the side of the road. Taxis were waiting for us there so obviously this is a common practice. It cost us an extra 80.000 to get to our hostel, that we had previously especially booked to be walking distance from the drop off point.

Overall the trip is nice because they give you bottled water during my 3 hr ride. I rated 4 stars because it is very difficult to hear any announcement on the intercom and the train has no visual signal telling you which stop you're at (which would help if you don't speak Vietnamese).

Booking with 12go is reliable. Booked from Hanoi to Ninh Binh at night. Request a drop off near my place/hotel. Trip was ok. In Ninh Binh we changed vehicle. I requested a drop off near my place/hotel. Everything was fine until, About 400 meters before arriving the driver refused to continue, pretending the road was too narrow which actually could fit a Lorry.

Seats should not be an option for 2+ hour trips. Pay the little extra and get a soft bed. The train shakes a lot and is noisy. If your ride is more than 3 - 4 hours, consider the bus, or fly if you can. Always selct a 4-bed room and book the bottom beds. Six-bed rooms are very cramped (same size room). The train is not always on time. ALL the toilets are very dirty. I would not by food on the train!

Notre bus pour Ninh Binh est parti 20min plus tôt que prévu mais heureusement nous étions là juste à temps! Pour l'arrivée, pensez à coordoner à l'avance un lieu de dépot si besoin sinon on vous depose au Long Hotel à Tam Coc et le personnel vous propose des taxis au double du vrai tarif... Sinon, bus correct et 2h de trajet comme prévu.

It was alright. Train was pretty much on time. Although the cabin got pretty hot with all the people on it and the very hot temperature outside so you couldn’t feel much AC air. But seats did recline way too far back in my opinion as a tall girl (175 cm). So when other local passengers took advantage of the reclining of the seats, it hit my knees where they’re heads were basically in my lap and I would have to ask them to push up a little.

Easy to buy ticket online. Got trough the gates at the station where a local man was very pushy and was ‘helping’ us to find our seats when we didn’t need help. He then asked for a tip which we werent happy about because he forced his help on us. The staff on the railway should not allow this. The train was fine and seats were comfortable.

very nice going to ninh binh from hanoi because my car was at the front so it was smooth ride. They had a funny vietnamese comedy show on the TV. I was very happy with the train. On the way back, however, my car was at the back and was very bumpy causing slight motion sickness (and i dont normally get motion sickness on boats), and someone made the toilet stink terribly so i had to wear a mask.

I took the SE5 train from Hanoi to Ninh Binh. Straightforward and easy. The porters in my coach were very helpful. Even though we couldn't communicate they noted I was a foreigner and made sure I understood when to get off the train. The locals with whom I shared my cabin were also super sweet. Again, despite not being able to communicate they made sure I got the food that was part of our ticket. Only docking one star for the toilet which was disgusting, as expected.

Completely easy! Once purchased through pay pal. Tickets arrived by email 12 hours later, we didn't print anything. Turn up to the train station and all is well signposted. The guard on the train was really helpful and let us know when to get off so no concerns there. Air con was in the extreme but with socks and a jumper no worries at all. Great price and the train was actually pretty empty. I would absolutely choose the soft seats for journeys in future. Just maybe not an overnight 13hr one.
