Train #SE10 2nd Class AC seats only, Vietnam Railways (Đường sắt Việt Nam), Jan 17, 2020
The train was ok. But when we arrived at station we were told by information that our train was cancelled and we should get refund and take the bus. We went to the ticket office and it was not true just delayed 1 hour. The toilets reaked and the train a little dirty. Our seats were ok but the recliner was broken and I couldn't get the seat to go up. Fine for short journey but I wouldn't have wanted to be on it for a long time.

Tickets were easy and efficient thanks 12go. Vietnam rail needs to improve seating labels to be visible. The whole cabin is full of people standing in the isle trying to read seat labels rather than sitting down (written on back of head rest, most chairs are reclined so it’s possible to read when looking up from the floor)

Train #SE2 2nd Class AC seats only, Vietnam Railways (Đường sắt Việt Nam), Apr 13, 2019
Train was late by 50 minutes which we have found to be normal every train is delayed. Seats are ok comfortable enough way better than the bus. We had 30 Vietnamese army people in the coach, they were very noisy singing songs, clapping. Were told by train staff to just up after 1 hour of this. If going by land travel, the train is the way to go.
