JM
train 2nd Class AC seats only, Vietnam Railways, Mar 27, 2020
perfect, booked a train trip and paid online, printed ticket and everything went smoothly
LM
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.
PW
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.
MO
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!

train #SE19 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Vietnam Railways, Jan 23, 2020
Lovely welcome drink and service at Mango Hotel. Very nice refreshments in the cabin. Comfy beds, not a bad sleep when you get used to the rocking. Overall a good service from Lamen Express. Booking process from 12go was very good and staff respond quickly to messages
JM
Bus Standard AC, Hoang Long, Jan 21, 2020
From what we heard about this bus company it was really OK. We probably got lucky. Bus was only half full, so we got space and we had only hour delay (on 13h trip it is a huge success in my mind). The staff were not friendly but they did their job.

The whole journey went very smoothly from check in desk at the Mango Hotel, been given a complimentary drink and escorted to our cabin, complimentary drinks and snacks in cabin, the beds were comfortable enough we managed to get a few hours sleep and the train arrived in Hue a little early.

The journey went smoothly and the drivers were very friendly. It only would be nice if we would have been informed at the bus station in Hanoi that the bus was on its way, but an hour late.

ZC
train #SE1 1st Class Sleeper, Vietnam Railways, Dec 21, 2019
Our coach did not exist and had to wait a short while why we were allocated another one. Room basic but had what we needed - beds functional, AC and USB ports worked. Toilet ok - better than I was expecting. Train noises but managed some sleep.
LP
train #SE19 VIP Sleeper 4x, Laman Express, Dec 20, 2019
We had our own cabin for four people. The bottom bunk is low and it was hard to get a medium suitcase underneath it. The upper storage shelf will easily hold four small carry on bags. There is an attendant for each car. All beverages and snacks in the cabin are included (no extra charge) the smell of cigarette smoke comes through the door. The air conditioning turns on and off randomly so that it’s ether very cold or muggy. The beds include pillows and thick blankets. We traveled with our two boys ages 10 & 12 and they enjoyed it. We arrived in Hue on time. Thanks,
PB

It was very expensive for what it was. Disappointing not the VIP first class we were expecting
NM
train #SE19 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Vietnam Railways, Dec 10, 2019
Overall a really good experience. Booking through 12goasia was easy and the train ride itself was very smooth. Being on the top bunk got a little bit uncomfortable after 13 hours but overall a good experience!
NM
train #SE1 1st Class Sleeper, Vietnam Railways, Dec 10, 2019
Easy to book with 12go Asia. Train cabin was ok.... Not terribly clean but also not terribly dirty. No snacks or water given by Vietnam Railways like other providers (but they are also the cheapest). Train was on time. One cockroach. Bathrooms we're not super clean but they had soap.
TK
train #SE3 1st Class Sleeper, Vietnam Railways, Dec 6, 2019
Nice and clean.
VV
train #SE3 1st Class Sleeper, Vietnam Railways, Dec 6, 2019
The trip would have been nicer was it not for the cockroaches nest in our cabin. They were small. But everywhere. Killed one and five minutes later another one appeared. Tried to get some sleep. But then ine just crawled over my face ;(. Apart friom that. Toilet was nice and cabin was good size.
LP
train #SE7 2nd Class AC seats only, Vietnam Railways, Dec 5, 2019
Perfectly on time, food and drink cheap and for all the day. Assistants of the train kind and helpful. Not really cleaned, toilet less :( quite noisy!
AH
train #SE1 1st Class Sleeper, Vietnam Railways, Dec 1, 2019
Quite loud but otherwise nothing to complain. We are family of 4 (two small kids , 3 years and 10 months).
AH
train #SE1 1st Class Sleeper, Vietnam Railways, Nov 28, 2019
In most ways the trip went exactly to plan. The SE1 train left Hanoi right on time, and arrived in Hué at the expected time too. The beds were relatively comfortable compared to the 2nd and 3rd class options, and there were many charging points in the sleeper compartment. First class in Vietnam is definitely different to the equivalent in more developed countries but it served our purpose - we are a family travelling with two young boys (8 & 6). The main negative was that there were some small cockroaches in our compartment - easily managed - but unexpected, and unusual for us.

Check in and boarding excellent and stress free! Welcome snacks great, could have provided one more water per passenger for the long journey. Light breakfast excellent also. Great bathroom amenities, kept clean throughout journey. Unfortunately Wi-fi was not working during trip. Beds were uncomfortable for a deluxe room - very hard mattress. Overall a very good trip!
