train #SE19 1st Class Sleeper, Laman Express, Mar 23, 2020
Would do it again!
MG
train #SE19 1st Class Sleeper, Laman Express, Mar 23, 2020
There is no charm to the Vietnamese trains system and really no reason to prefer it to air transportation.
CM
train #SE19 VIP Sleeper 4x, Laman Express, Mar 12, 2020
Great service and nice touch with the free drinks and pastries. The cabin was nice and clean and we both had a reasonable nights sleep.
LR
train #SE19 VIP Sleeper 4x, Laman Express, Mar 10, 2020
Overall trip was pretty comfortable, we had enough room to store our bags and loved the complimentary welcome drinks/water and breakfast however toilet paper was not replaced once on a 13 hour journey and when we asked for water we got told we had to pay for it even though our ticket said water would be “free flow” complimentary.

train #SE19 VIP Sleeper 4x, Laman Express, Mar 9, 2020
Very comfortable trip, beds are OK (a little small for some). There are some drinks (water, coffee, tea, beer) and a small breakfast (cake and banana). Overall great experience.

train #SE19 VIP Sleeper 4x, Laman Express, Feb 10, 2020
Pretty comfortable and clean with good breakfast and snack provisions, but it's still quite squishy between four people and your back will get stiff from the bumpiness of the train ride. Toilets are shared with the whole carriage and don't seem the most sanitary. WiFi is incredibly slow too so we ended up using our mobile data.
JB
flight Economy, VietJet Air, Feb 5, 2020
We waited a very long time in the bus before we could get off to board the plane. There was a delay and the bus was cramped. Plane was also delayed but worth the price.
MD
flight Economy, Vietnam Airlines, Feb 5, 2020
Great experience - quick and painless check in and communication levels were great. Flight was comfortable and we got there in under an hour!
