Train #SE2 VIP Sleeper 4x, Violette Express Train, Mar 22, 2020
Мне понравилось, хотелось опробовать вьетнамские железные дороги. Чисто, по расписанию, проводник приветливый. Особо поспать не удалось, потому что как-то сильно трясло и потом все время волнуешься, что проедешь свою станцию. В этом смысле конечно лучше ехать подольше, например часов 17. Смыв в туалете не работал, но можно было воспользоваться туалетом в соседнем вагоне. В вагоне прохладно, кондиционер работал исправно. Разносят бесплатную воду в бутылках.

Train ride was great, on time leaving and arrival. Toilets were adequately clean WITH toilet roll! Bonus Seats with AC reclined fantastically and comfortable. Looking forward to our return trip

First class sleeper was not ‘first class’. It was all ok and functional but bedding was not particularly clean, the carriage was old and a bit dirty and the toilet ... well, train toilets are typically poor all over the world but this was fairly awful. We did 5 hours - can’t imagine what 30 would be like! Vietnam train tickets are not expensive relative to UK.

Train #SNT2 VIP Sleeper 4x, Saigon Golden Train (Sài Gòn Golden Train), Jan 30, 2020
Took vip 4 sleeper. We were 3 adults from same family. A father and young daughter had 4th bunk in cabin. Turned our lights out and slept reasonable well. It's train travel, so you do have a bit of noise and rumble and tumble, train stopped twice for 30 minutes each time, we got a knock 30 minutes before our station came up. Would definitely travel again my train, once dawn came up it was amazing traveling through towns and waving to the locals..

Over Chinese New Year period train heavy booked took what was available and got offered better sleeper seats by conductor. They provided a service which would be acceptable in most countries. Very content customers. Great economical way to travel.

Bus Standard AC, Hoang Long (Hoàng Long), Dec 14, 2019
At all - not so bad :) Departure and arriving to destination was in time. One stop with meal included at about half of the trip from Ho Chi Mihn to Nha Trang. Bus was filled 1/4, AC sometimes was working, there isn't a kingsize bed, but for ticket cost - generally ok.

Everything is cool. Seats are comfortable. We came in 1 hour before schedule time and had a pick up service for the hotel for free. Recommend!

No problems! Exceeded expectations, although the place to get your ticket for golden trains at Saigon is not kiosk three- go to the information desk :)

Great service and the staff look after you. They made sure I got off my stop in plenty of time. The food vendors were great too, very friendly and safe experience.

Train #SNT2 VIP Sleeper 4x, Livitrans Express (LienViet Transport & Trade Joint stock Company), Nov 10, 2019
The Staff are very helpful, my friend and I had the 4x vip sleeper to ourselves which made things a lot more comfortable! We both slept on and off, you kind of get use to the swaying and stopping and starting motion, it’s a little noisy so take ear plugs if you’re a light sleeper

Train #SE22 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Vietnam Railways (Đường sắt Việt Nam), Oct 27, 2019
The conductor were all very nice and friendly. The AC was a bit too cold and there was a lot of mold at the roof. But all together it was a good trip. Would travel again by train.

On time and train was good but the TV is stupidly loud which seriously detracts from the experience and overall quality of the journey.

Bus Semi Sleeper, Phuong Trang (Phương Trang), Aug 21, 2019
The bus arrived h1.30 earlier so I advice u to check with your hotel if they can accept check in in advance. The WiFi was working and the travel was quite good, just a little nosy. They stopped many times to allow u to go to the toilet. It’s a good way if u want to save money and don’t want to waste the days during your Vietnam journey.

Bus VIP Sleeper 41, Kumho Samco (Kumho Samco), Aug 17, 2019
Poor access to top beds - needs better handles and steps. Trip needs 2 bathroom stops, not only one. Bus did NOT terminate at bus station, but in garage. Was NOT offered connecting transport - luckily my Guesthouse was near the garage.

Bus VIP Sleeper 41, Kumho Samco (Kumho Samco), Aug 6, 2019
Excellent and very comfortable ride. My only criticism would be that one toilet stop in 9+ hours wasn’t quite enough.

We took the over night train to Nha Trang. Second class seats were not great. Bright lights remained on throughout the trip. We arrived three hours later than the intended time of arrival. They did give us a blanket which was nice as the A/C was very cold.

The ride was pleasant enough. My bed/compartment was clean (not sure about the blanket so I didn’t use it). The drivers were very rude

Was described as VIP sleeper but the beds were very uncomfortable and the cabin was very old. Not worth the money at all.
