Comment se rendre de Hanoï à Hué

En bref

Hué était autrefois la capitale impériale de la dynastie Nguyễn, de 1802 jusqu’à la révolution communiste de 1945. Cette ville a énormément souffert durant la dernière guerre et de nombreux bâtiments ont été détruits mais la citadelle impériale, les tombes royales et le complexe de temples continuent à attirer les foules (aussi bien locales que touristiques). La ville de Hué est située sur la rivière des Parfums (fleuve Sông Hương) et représente un changement de rythme très agréable après Hanoï.

De Hanoï à Hué

Le voyage entre Hanoï et Hué peut être réalisé et apprécié de plusieurs façons différentes. Se rendre de Hanoï à Hué par voie terrestre prend environ 14 heures en bus ou en train. Au contraire des pays voisins, le bus n’est pas forcément plus rapide que le train (les routes ne sont pas toujours en super conditions). Prendre le train de Hanoï à Hué vous permettra de soit profiter de la splendeur des paysages (train de jour), soit de passer une bonne nuit de sommeil (train de nuit). Le vol de Hanoï à Hué ne dure qu’une heure mais ni l’aéroport de départ, ni celui de destination ne se situe à proximité de la ville et il est très fréquent que les vols domestiques soient en retard.

De Hanoï à Hué par train

Le voyage en train entre Hanoï et Hué est l’une des options les plus populaires auprès des voyageurs, car les deux sociétés de transport ferroviaires privées à disposition offrent de belles options. Ces sociétés proposent des wagons de luxe s’attachant au train de Vietnam Railways se rendant de Hanoï à Hué. Les trains les plus rapides sont les trains de nuit car ils permettent de se rendre de Hanoï à Hué en 13 heures environ. Ce sont les numéros SE1 et SE3, qui partent à 19:30 et à 22:00 pour arriver à Hué à 9:00 et 10:30. Des cabines de couchettes VIP à 4 lits sont disponibles avec les trains Livitrans Express et Violette Express. Comparé au service offert par Vietnam Railways, ces cabines sont bien plus propres et le personnel de bord est bien plus aux petits soins : c’est l’option idéale pour ceux souhaitant se rendre de Hanoï à Hué en train. Ces opérateurs de luxe permettent de voyager et de dormir dans des conditions de confort bien supérieures à tout autre moyen de transport disponible. Un lit dans le wagon de Livitrans ou de Violette Express pour se rendre de Hanoï à Hué coûte environ 75 USD dans le train le plus lent et environ 85 USD dans le train le plus rapide.

Vietnam Railways possède également deux trains de jour (afin que vous puissiez admirer le paysage), mais les sociétés privées n’y proposent par leurs services. Ces trains partent à 9:00 et à 13:00 et arrivent à Hué à 23:00 et à 4:00. Une place assise simple pour vous rendre de Hanoï à Hué avec Vietnam Railways coûte aux environs de 25 USD, c’est bien moins cher mais très peu recommandé car, que ces sièges soient durs ou molletonnés, il ne suffira que de quelques heures pour que vous ne vous y sentiez plus à l’aise du tout. Le prix pour une couchette à bord de ces trains est d’environ 45 USD, ce qui un petit extra à payer très faible pour le confort supplémentaire offert.

De Hanoï à Hué en bus

Se rendre de Hanoï à Hué en bus de nuit est le moyen le plus populaire auprès des personnes au budget serré. De nombreuses petites sociétés de transports font la liaison entre Hanoï et Hué. Beaucoup d’entre elles ayant cependant un historique de sécurité et de propreté plus que douteux, nous ne pouvons que vous conseiller de voyager avec un opérateur fiable et reconnu, avec un très bon historique auprès des voyageurs étrangers. Sinh Tourist est l’un de ces opérateurs et offre un bus couchette se rendant de Hanoï à Hué et partant à 19:00 pour arriver à 8:00. Les clients ayant utilisés leurs services ont toujours laissé de superbes avis sur leur trajet, qui coûte 13.50 USD.

Se déplacer à Hué

Hué est une ville plutôt compacte et la plupart de ses attractions (sauf les tombes royales) peuvent être rejointes à pied. Les pousse-pousse et les taxi-moto sont monnaie courante, n’hésitez pas à demander à votre hôtel quel est le tarif raisonnable à payer avant de monter à bord de l’un d’entre eux. Afin d’éviter tout problème ou futurs conflits, négociez le prix avant de monter à bord et écrivez systématiquement le montant (sans oublier tous les zéros) sur un morceau de papier.

Même si cette ville est loin d’être la demeure d’autant d’arnaqueurs que Hanoï, elle ne possède que peu de grosses sociétés de taxi et en prendre un peut donc s’avérer être au petit bonheur la chance. Tous les taxis ont généralement un compteur fonctionnement parfaitement, mais il faut cependant essayer de savoir plus ou moins en avance le trajet à emprunter pour se rendre à sa destination. Votre meilleur choix peut éventuellement être de laisser votre hôtel ou votre restaurant s’occuper de votre transport en taxi.

Il est très facile de louer tous types de deux-roues (motorisés ou non), ce qui est un bon moyen de partir à la découverte de cette ville (il y a beaucoup moins de circulation que dans les grandes villes). Les vélos se louent pour quelques dollars à la journée et les motos et scooters coûtent moins de 10 USD par jour. Vous pouvez absolument demander à votre hôtel de vous aider avec la location.

Où se loger à Hué

Les options d’hébergements les plus populaires de Hué sont éparpillées dans quelques-uns des pâtés à proximité du fleuve, en face de la citadelle. Les tarifs à la nuit sont sensiblement moins élevés qu’à Hanoï ou à Saïgon, pour une qualité similaire. Il n’y a normalement pas besoin de réserver en avance mais il vaut tout de même mieux prendre un calendrier afin de vérifier que votre séjour à Hué ne tombera pas en même temps que des vacances locales, car c’est une destination populaire auprès des Vietnamiens.

Activités à Hué

La citadelle impériale de Hué attire autant les locaux que les touristes étrangers, même après avoir été fortement endommagée après la dernière guerre. 20 de ses structures sont toujours sur place et il est possible d’y passer de longues heures à tout explorer (sans oublier le complexe du temple Thế Tổ Miếu). Ce site se situe à proximité de la rivière des Parfums, juste en face de la plupart des hébergements et vous n’aurez absolument aucun problème à trouver un guide parlant français afin de tout vous expliquer en détail.

Le sud de Hué renferme les tombes de quelques-uns des empereurs de la dynastie Nguyễn, chacune de ces tombes ayant un style en symbiose avec la personnalité et l’histoire de la personne y étant enterrée. Les 4 sites se situent entre 8 et 12 km du centre de Hué et peuvent facilement être rejoints en vélo. Chaque tombe étant située à quelques minutes à pied du fleuve, il est aussi possible de toutes les visiter lors d’une croisière en bateau. Vous aurez à débourser quelques dollars afin d’accéder à ces tombes mais ne le regretterez pas !

La pagode de la Dame céleste (Thien Mu) est le symbole de Hué et son aspect octogonal en forme de « pièce montée » en a même fait une attraction des plus reconnues au sein du Vietnam. Cette pagode se situe 4 kilomètres au sud de la citadelle, en haut d’une colline surplombant le fleuve et peut facilement être atteinte en vélo ou en bateau.

Continuer à voyager depuis Hué

En faisant quelques heures de plus au sud de Hué (en bus ou en train), les villes de Danang et de Hôi An sont prêtes à vous accueillir. La dernière d’entre elles est en fait un comptoir vieux de centaines d’années qui a été restauré pour maintenant devenir une véritable attraction touristique. Le trajet en train entre Hué et Danang est de toute splendeur, ne dure que 3 heures et ne coûte que 5 USD avec Vietnam Railways. Il y a trois départs par jour mais seul celui de 10:30 vous permettra de profiter pleinement du paysage en plein jour. Pour continuer sur Hôi An, il vous faudra soit prendre un taxi depuis la gare ferroviaire de Danang, soit réserver un véhicule partagé (ce qui vous évitera surement de vous faire arnaquer). Le transfert de la gare ferroviaire de Danang à Hôi An prend environ une heure et coûte 40 USD. Sinh Tourist offre des bus à 8:00 et à 13:00 partant de Hué pour Danang pour 5 USD, ou allant jusqu’à Hôi An pour un peu moins de 15 USD.

Avis des passagers sur un total de 5,944 passagers ayant voyagé avec nous sur cet itinéraire

Les opérateurs de 12Go offrent trois types de services :

Bon marché, rapide, bon — vous ne pouvez cependant bien souvent n’en choisir que deux d’entre eux !
Bon marché et rapide ne sera pas bon. (Par ex : les bus en partance ou en direction de Khao San Road, les bus locaux ou les trains 3e classe)
Bon marché et bon ne sera pas rapide. (Par ex : les trains VIP de Thaïlande)
Rapide et bon ne sera pas bon marché. (Par ex : les services de chauffeurs privés ou encore les bus VIP 24)

Faites votre choix ! Veuillez garder à l’esprit que, bien que nous surveillons de près les services proposés, nous ne sommes qu’une agence. Cela signifie que nous préférons fournir nos efforts sur les services de disponibilité et d’émission de billets plutôt que de nous renseigner sur les angles d’inclinaison des sièges.

Mais le pire est la climatisation réglée beaucoup trop froid, nous avons eu froid toute la nuit comme nos voisins de cabine. Nous avons demandé à l’emplOyé de la compagnie peu aimable qui n’a pas su la régler. Cela nous a gâché tout le voyage en train. En conclusion, la prestation n’est pas à la hauteur du prix du voyage.

The trip in the bus was quite confortable even if the air conditionner is either too cold or too warm every 10 minutes. They provide you with a small blanket. The wifi is working well. I advise you to go directly to the address of the agency (our hotel called and give us the address) because if you go to the getting point, you will have seats left and probably not be next to the person who travels with you. Careful however to take dinner with you if possible and toilet papers, the first bus stop was sooo disgusting ! Second one was Turkish toilets, just so you know. Try it one time, it's an experiment ;-)

We booked And paid for a vip cabin, on arival we got a shared cabin, there were no options for a vip cabin. This Made for a very uncomfotable 13 hour trainride. Snoring passengers, crying children = no sleep! Nobody at The trainstation could help us, Because we booked The tickets at 12GO And not directly from Vietnam Railway. Tip: cut out The middleman And buy directly at Vietnam Railway so you dont get stuck in a trainstation in Hanoi with People who dont speak english.

Not as bad as everyone was saying. The beds are fine, not the most comfortable but good enough to fall asleep on. The train does shake a lot but it’s not that noticeable. If you’re quite tall you might struggle. There’s little room in the cabins but if you don’t have many other options the train is perfectly fine to take.

Great trip- we had the whole cabin to ourselves! The beds are pretty hard (even though we booked a soft sleeper) and the bedding did smell a bit stale, but the bathroom and sink facilities were great, the staff were really friendly and helpful (they even gave us a 10minute warning before our stop). A million times better than the night bus- actually had a decent night’s sleep. Would definitely recommend.

Hanoi to Hue the coach journey was fine, they stopped a few times for toilet breaks over the 13 hours as there was no toilet onboard. what I want to complain about is when we got to the office to check in for the bus and they told us to goto another office which was only across the road a bit. When we got to the other office they told us to go somewhere else about 15 minutes walk away. They only checked our ticket at the last stop so why not just tell us to go there first of all instead of walking around thinking we are going to miss our bus. Overall the bus ride was safe and good.

★☆☆☆☆
We paid for VIP and whilst I didn’t expect anything amazing I expected more than what we got. The cabin was dirty and had cockroaches in. The actual normal soft sleeper looked cleaner and brighter than the VIP cabin. It feels like you are only paying extra for a duvet and some food which we didn’t eat as it looked rank. It almost felt like we were just put on a normal dirty cabin! Better off flying or getting a bus which I think would be more comfortable. Very disappointed given the fact tickets are $100 each.

Make sure you receive a paper ticket when you arrive, as this is your boarding pass. Directly ask whoever picks you up at the Mango Hotel for the boarding ticket. They might give you a ticket with someone else’s name on it, as I think the agency books a bunch of tickets at once, but as long as it’s the right train and destination then you’re fine.

Our bus was dirty and our seats were broken. Part way through the journey randomers were sleeping in the aisles next to us so it was very cramped. Water should’ve been included and passed around by staff, instead the water was left at the front and it was carnage trying to get a bottle. The 2 drivers were having a very loud conversation throughout the drive whilst we were trying to sleep. Only positive is we left on time. I wouldn’t book again with this company.

As we were walking to the train a man came behind us and grabbed one of our suitcases and ran to the train. He took us to a cabin and then stood at our door way. We gave him a tip but he wouldn’t leave and demanded more money. He told us $100,000 VD each and when we gave him $200,000 he turned to me and asked for another $200,000 VD. We figured out that he didn’t work for the train and he was a bit scary but we refused to give him more cash and he finally left. We were very upset that the train station allows this. We had to go through a locked turnstyle to get to the tracks so how he got in was puzzling. There should be better security to prevent this from happening. Just as we were getting settled in our cabin a train staff told us we were on the wrong car and we had to pack up and move. Not only did we get scammed out of $$ but he put us in the wrong cabin????. After getting settled again we sat on the “beds” that were as soft as the floor????. Even placing the duvets on top of each other didn’t help at all. Before we left they figured out that there was no running water in our car which included the toilet so we had to go to another car to use the washroom. There was no toilet paper until early the next morning and there was urine all over the toilet seat, toilet back and the floor - it was disgusting !! Make sure you bring a lot of wet wipes to clean the toilet and for personal use. In the early morning we were provided a “hot breakfast” consisting of sticky rice, a cup of water and a serving of some meat product that was 90% fat - not an appetizing choice for a morning meal. Even fresh fruit would have been a better meal. The positive part was the rhythmic motion of the train when you were falling asleep and watching the beautiful country side views in the early morning. Would I recommend the trip? I’m not sure, the adventure was fun but I would probably fly the next time Happy travels????

I wanted to be enthusiastic & embrace the train. I’ve travelled extensively by train. The coach was filled with cockroaches & the western toilet was filthy. You shouldn’t need to clean it every time you go in! The beds were rock hard offering not a fraction of comfort & the main bedding smelt of urine. The violette carriages looked cleaner & there were no roaches. The staff were helpful & polite. I’d now opt for a plane every time!

Middle bunk is very small, not much room for you to sit up. There was a family in my 6 person room. They had children that cried all night. I’m assuming one was sick because he threw up all over the floor which made the room have an unpleasant smell. The bed itself is fine. Just not the best people. Especially since there were 8 people total and only 6 beds.

The train itself was fine - hard beds, a little dirty, air conditioning too high, sheets felt a bit sodden, bathroom gets progressively worse over the trip, people smoking in the cabins and on the car (which filtered into our cabin through the aircon). But - perfectly acceptable for the price paid, distance traveled, and the fact it’s Vietnam not London. Plenty of water and snacks in the cabin, snack cart cafe by from time to time, train arrived perfectly on time. Please sort out the ticket situation at Hanoi. Then it would be 4 stars.

Talking about the volume of the train is unecessary as this is not the domain of the Livitrains. It was clean,comfortable (I recomend upper bed!). Everything was ok,exept of the changing of the ticket. It is not as we thought. We were there waiting at the train station,as at the reception they constantly said we have to wait...at one moment an agent or some worker just stepped to my boyfiend and pushed some bill-like tickets to his hands and left. We didn't understand this,as the number of passport was not ours stated on the ticket. After a while the same people at the reception showed us that this are the tickets,the passport number is irrelevant. Otherweise the couch itself was fine.

I had typed two paragraphs when the web form reset itself and I can't be bothered to type it all again. I give 4* not 5* because of the confusion over Livitrans tickets at Hanoi station. I had received a voucher by email. I thought I would sort it out in advance so went to Hanoi station the day before, only to discover there is no Livitrans office. I was told to come back an hour before the train journey. It does say this on the voucher but is not very clear at all. I thought it meant you shouldn't turn up five minutes before the train left. The voucher said go to Coach 12. It turned out this was a Violette coach and the attendant did not know about me. There was great confusion as people were boarding and cleaners were still making up the compartments. In the end the attendant went to coach 11 and found someone from Livitrans who got me into the right compartment in that coach. She had a list of people on her clipboard so I presume there was some organisation behind the chaos. The journey itself was fine. Arrived 30 minutes late which is nothing for an overnight trip. A tip for when you arrive in Hue. If getting a taxi to your hotel make sure it is on the meter, or agree a fare in advance. I was charged 150,000 VND for the ride to my hotel. On returning to the station a few days later it was 23,0000 on the meter. Be warned!

Thank you for the review and very sorry about the confusion with the boarding process! We’ve been told that due to maintenance the numbering of the coaches was mixed up but it should be back to normal now.

For anyone reading this review:

PLEASE DO NOT GO TO THE STATION THE DAY BEFORE TO EXCHANGE THE VOUCHER, THEY WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE AND PROBABLY CAUSE A LOT OF CONFUSION.

SE3 was a newer train. The 2nd class sleeper beds are quite hard but they tell you that when booking so it's no surprise. They don't seem to change the bed clothes on the journey as we got off at hue from Hanoi but maybe they were fresh from the start of the journey. We probably will go first class for the next trip. They give you food for breakfast which was ok, bring your own if you have a weak stomach. Great way to travel overnight and wake up at your destination. All in all would recommend if first class is sold out

There was a hiccup from Vietnam railways which delayed confirmation of sleeper carriage. But the communication with 12go was great and they helped us get the sleeper. I would recommend using them for travel arrangements and will use them next time. The sleeper was clean and the bedding was fine. be aware though that you may enchanter cock roaches ( we saw 2 but they didn't bother us. The country side was fascinating and we all slept well enough.

I don't know if this is just a problem with 12GoAsia's ticketing (I've found it much easier booking Vietnam train tickets online elsewhere, and got actual usable boarding passes sent to me; but these were all for daytime trips only, not a sleeping car), or if this is how the Vietnamese railway service deals with the sleeper trains. As other travellers have complained, you only get a 'voucher' e-mailed to you, not the actual ticket. The 'voucher' is 5 or 6 pages long, very complicated, very confusing, in tiny print. It seems you only need to print off the first page of this to exchange for a real ticket - but staff at the station seem confused by these printouts, don't know exactly what to do with it. One member of the ticketing staff that I asked at Hanoi Station a few days before travelling - who had quite good English - told me that I could use the voucher as a ticket, and didn't need to do anything else. This was incorrect. It seems that actual berths are only allocated shortly before boarding - and this leads to somewhat chaotic scenes. There seems to be only one young girl (very nice, speaks good English) going around the Waiting Room distributing tickets according to some hastily printed master list, and she's a bit overwhelmed. Perhaps, as a solo traveller, I was particularly vulnerable. It's nice that they make the effort to keep groups together in one room, even if they've bought tickets at the last minute, but... this meant I got moved twice, in the last few minutes before the train left, ending up in a completely different berth to the one stated on the ticket I'd been given. I found the berths perfectly comfortable; firm mattresses are good for me. Perhaps they were unprepared for the severity of the cold this winter a month or two back, but now they are providing decent duvets, and turning the A/C to 'warm' rather than 'cold'. (One of my companions found a cockroach in the upper berth luggage area; not sure why this seems to be such a common problem on this train!!) A more serious problem is the train's noisiness, and the extreme unevenness of the ride. You will be shaken awake every few minutes. The complimentary drinks kept getting thrown off the table on to the floor. And there were a couple of jolts so violent that I really thought we might have derailed for a moment; the condition of the tracks is obviously pretty terrible. I found the staff all very pleasant and helpful; most seemed to speak at least a few words of English. Complimentary drinks have been increased from just a small bottle of water to some Coke and beer (but only 2 of each, for a room of 4 people, so you have to negotiate sharing!). A lady comes around offering rather dubious looking coffee (but not tea) early in the morning; apart from that, there was no sign of any food or drink being available on the train (the overnight SE1 out of Hanoi). Punctuality wasn't great either; we were 45 minutes later than advertised getting into Hue. It's quite a fun experience, but... you will arrive exhausted. And it's very expensive, compared to almost anywhere else in Asia. It was noticeable that almost all the passengers on the sleeper - even just before the big Tet holiday - were foreign tourists. Certainly not a money-saving option for the budget traveller: works out far more expensive than a daytime train and a night in a hotel.
12Go réponse:

Thanks a lot for the feedback! We send actual, usable boarding passes for all Vietnam Railways tickets but the system is different for the private trains such as Violette Express. Unfortunately the voucher exchange process is far from optimal for the private trains in Vietnam and is the same no matter which agency one buys the tickets from. It is more or less supposed to work as you describe despite many requests from 12Go and other agencies to improve it.

Our sincere apologies for the hassle and best of luck on the remainder of your travels!

I booked the trip back in december and paid for it right away. I got a confirmation for the booking and then nothing. After 3 weeks without news about out tickets I contacted 12goasia. They told me that they coul not get me the tickets after all and I had to accept another train and an earlier departure that did not suit our plans.
12Go réponse:

When you booked these tickets there was an error with the Vietnam Railways bookings system which caused berths to be shown as available when in fact they were not. Our staff checked on the availability for this route daily but it never open for sale from Hanoi to Hue on this date as it had already been sold out for longer routes. The booking issue with the Raliways system has been fixed and this situation can not occur in the future.

Very easy and convenient to book tickets. Receipt of payment arrived immediately, and tickets were sent to my email within 24hr. Just had to print out the ticket to bring to the train station, and got on without a hitch. Only issue was at the train station where there was someone who pretended to help us get to the cabin, but then charged us a fee for it and we had to stand him down until he backed off. Nonetheless, book through 12go Asia, don’t need to worry!

The luxury sleeper train did not really meet the expectations. For £60 from Hanoi to Hue I was hoping for a bit of service. There was a small bottle of water and a biscuit for each passanger. Each bed had a pillow and thin duvet cover, but not the actual duvet. It was about 10C when we left Hanoi and the air-conditioning was on very strong! This is winter in Vietnam and they still put AC on? Also disappointed there was no actual duvet. Luckily I had my sleeping bag so was covered from the cold. The food provided on the train was a rice soup with chive and some dried meat - I ate it as I was hungry (you have to pay for it, it's not free of charge). Other than that there was a grilled sweetcorn available and some drinks. Do bring plenty of food for the long journey! While I was sleeping I had couple of cock roaches drop on my face from the ceiling... Didn't have a sound sleep after that. Also found couple of bugs in my luggage..oh well. The bed is super hard, no duvet, ac strongly on, food miserable, I know it is Vietnam I am travelling so I don't want to complain. Just giving honest review (it's not worth the £60).
