Hue to Ninh Binh Destination Reviews

Great journey, comfortable sleeper train, clean and on time.
Train #SE20 1st Class Sleeper, Vietnam Railways (Đường sắt Việt Nam), Nov 27, 2023
The bus was old and quite dirty. No possibility to charge phone and no reading light. This would not be a problem on shorter trip but this was a 12 hour ride.
Bus Sleeper 41, Grouptour (Công ty du lịch quốc tế Grouptour), Oct 20, 2023
The train was in time, the steward was very kind and helpfull, even waking us up when arriving on our location.
Train #SE20 VIP Sleeper 4x, Lotus Train, Oct 10, 2023
Had super cheap seats. You can easily sleep there.
Train #SE20 2nd Class AC seats only, Vietnam Railways (Đường sắt Việt Nam), Aug 24, 2023
Really nice train. The rooms are clean. The beds are pretty big and the toilets are clean aswell
Train #SE20 VIP Sleeper 4x, Laman Express, Aug 20, 2023
We thought we had booked first class 4-bed but when we got there we realised our ticket was a 6 bed hard sleeper. I think maybe the one we booked was not available once it was confirmed but overall it was fine. The compartment was clean although the train arrived nearly two hours late.
Train #SE10 1st Class Sleeper, Vietnam Railways (Đường sắt Việt Nam), Jul 19, 2023
The bus wasn't cleaned before we boarded and you could smell the toilet from the back of the bus. We did get a 3 seater cabin to ourselves ( 2 people ) so that was a plus.
Bus VIP Sleeper 34, Techbus VN JSC (Techbus Vietnam Joint stock company), Jul 17, 2023
Tickets confirmed in few hours, train on time Good quality
Train #SE20 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Vietnam Railways (Đường sắt Việt Nam), Jun 23, 2023
Trip was good and comfortable. Train was more or less on time (30min delayed). 1 beer complimentary, afterwards 20k. Also coffee in the morning 20k ?!?
Train #SE20 VIP Sleeper 4x, Lotus Train, Jun 10, 2023
Too expensive, not a good value for that money.
