Passenger reviews out of total 7,615 passengers who traveled with us on this route.

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

train #SE3 VIP Sleeper 4x, Violette Express Train
★★★☆☆
Cheap enough and comfortable enough. The toilets were disgusting and the mouse in our cabin was a good bunk mate for the cockroaches. Couldn’t wait to get off. The staffs were very pleasant and helpful though. Very long trip.

train #SE3 VIP Sleeper 4x, Violette Express Train
★★★★☆
Arrangements by 12goasia were excellent and it was easy to board the train. Berth on train was OK, but could have been quieter and more comfortable. The bunks did not fold away and travelling during the day was uncomfortable.

train #SE9 VIP Sleeper, Vietnam Railways
★★★★☆
We travelled in a 1st class cabin with our eight year old daughter. There were three of us and we were joined by another passenger for some of the journey which wasn’t a problem. The beds are not perfect but comfortable enough to get some sleep. The cabins are quite small and if you are 6ft plus tall, you may find the beds a little short. All bedding seemed clean. Electric sockets and reading lights provided. Western style toilets were ok and did have loo roll at first. Obviously on a 16 hour journey, the toilets become less clean and loo roll gets used so bring some extra and hand gel too. The view from the window approaching Danang was stunning! Our daughter enjoyed the adventure and slept well too!

train #SE19 Class II Sleeper AC, Vietnam Railways
★★★★★
Very comfortable train (book the lower or middle Beth ONLY). We arrived just one hour later than planned but it felt a very safe and reliable way to travel in Vietnam. You are offered breakfast options in the night, but there are no other eating options so it's better to take food for the night with you!

Everything was as expected. Great experience! Bed a little bit hard and toilet blah but nothing we hadn't planned on.

train #SE1 VIP Sleeper, Vietnam Railways
★★★★★
Really enjoyed the overnight trip from Hanoi to Danang. It’s not the easiest to sleep on the train but that’s part of the adventure. Be aware that food options on the train are very limited. My wife and I bought 2 tickets in first class which meant we were probably going to have to share with 2 other randoms. But when we got on we paid 500,000 to the attendant and got the carriage to ourselves. Probably a rip-off but worth it. Magnificent scenery heading into Danang

train #SE1 VIP Cabin 2x, Vietnam Railways
★★☆☆☆
It seemed like a very pleasant trip in the two bed VIP compartment and it was a five star experience at first - until later in the evening/night - it should have been a smoke free transportation but people smoked at the small space between the railway wagons and somehow it felt like majority of the smoke ended up in our compartment - I assume through the air conditioner - felt like trying to sleep in one of those smoke boxes you see on other "no smoking areas" - I would never do this again until they have a solution for this I'm sorry to say even though the CO2-footprint is an important aspect, I'm taking an airplane next time.

★★★★☆
We booked the SE3 train from Hanoi to Danang. We booked 2 berths, aware that we could be sharing our room, we had read about roommates who weren’t so good and recently were told of an unpleasant experience, yes it’s a gamble. We were fortunate to have a lovely young couple from our own country. Clean sheets and duvets/pillows. Bananas, a chocolate bar, water and hand wipes were provided. Just as I had read about. The toilet was ok, I have seen worse in other other country’s, yes it’s small, yes it’s old, the water level is quite high so that can splash about, we took our own toilet paper but there was some provided. Yes the train goes clickity clack, we had ear plugs and that helped, all 4 of us thought we had a reasonable sleep. There was a lady with a food trolley selling drinks and snacks. Ticketing was easy, we handed our voucher over and our carriage and bed numbers got written on it. The train left on time but arrived 30 min late. We had a good experience, as I had hoped from reading other positive reviews.

This was the longest 16 hours of our lives. Looking back, we laugh, but I guess we expected too much for "first-class" service in Vietnam. The beds were hard and the train moved so much and made so much noise that sleep was almost impossible. The air-circulation made my eyes freak out and I woke up with two swollen, red eyes. No food is included and the bathrooms were so disgusting. I couldn't help but gag when I entered them and had to hold my breath and squat over the toilet. Just buy a flight. Or have a crazy experience to laugh about once you get to your hotel and have the best shower of your life. :D

The actual train trip was good, however I had problems with the booking. I paid for four seats in the cabin so we didn’t have to share with strangers. My receipt showed all seats together in the same car. But when we got there, the boarding passes were in two different cars! My son and I had to wait outside the train until minutes before departure to see if we would have our own cabin. Ridiculous!
12Go response:
Sorry but I think there's a bit of a misunderstanding here. If at all possible we book your entire group into one cabin but in this case it was not. Often the lower berths will sell out much faster than the upper berths (especially in the week before and after major holidays such as now) and so it becomes impossible to get four in the same cabin or car.

Boarding was very quick and smooth and the train left on time. Like other travellers have commented the train was very noisy and rattled and bumped its way to Da Nang where we departed for Hoi An. Shared the cabin with a number of insects and a tiny mouse who was intent on eating our complimentary chocolate bar which he had half achieved by the time we got off. It was an experience but an ok one!

You know, lots of negative comments on here and I’m reading some validity in many, but I think some expectations might have been off. Did Hanoi to Denang sleeper with hubby and two sons, so had a cabin to ourselves, which I think makes a HUGE difference. You can’t control for bunk mates. Bedding clean but not sparkling white. Toilets sloshed a bit yup. It’s a wobbly train. We brought wipes and toilet paper and were prepared for that. The boys LOVED the experience and the views for the last couple hours of the trip were fascinating. Boarding the train in Hanoi was fine. Had arranged for a driver with the hotel at the small Denang station, so the logistics worked. Really glad we did it. A fun part of the trip. Would I do it agaiin? Since flying is similar price and so much quicker probably not, but really am glad we did it for this leg. Bring your own food. Particularly breakfast.

After reading so many mixed reviews of these trains I was slightly trepidatious on embarking on an overnighter, but thinking it through, the worst that could happen would be a crummy night's sleep, so decided to book a ticket anyhow. If bad, the experience would perhaps be some thing worth writing about, and if good, then great! The major complaint by most people seemed to be regarding cleanliness and the presence of roaches. Perhaps all the people who have been pleased by the trip haven't bothered to leave reviews then? I was utterly shocked by how clean the compartment I had was, and it seemed all the other compartments in my car were equally clean. There were even flowers in a vase on the table in every room! Mattresses were typical of Vietnamese mattresses, which is they were firm. I love a firm mattress, so was very comfortable. I had a top bunk, which I found to be wide enough for myself and my laptop and camera to rest. Linens were clean, and there is an open compartment beyond one's feet where additional baggage would be stored if necessary (I kept mine under the bottom bunk, but I suspect I should have tossed it up here). I would recommend packing along a jacket like a Patagonia Nano Puff (warmish, but packs down into a small pocket). The a/c is frigid, and my only complaint, and it goes on and off all night. The linens provided are not really up to the task of keeping one warm. The train was noisy and rocked a bit, but these are old tracks, so hardly surprising. If you're a European used to the smooth ride of your high-speed rail, this is not it, but if you're an American and have traveled with Amtrak, then this is pretty on par with that. The toilet was fine, I thought, and the window in there was kept open at all times, so it didn't smell too strongly. I wouldn't envy any ladies, or gents needing to sit though. Just empty your bowels before departure and you should be fine. After I was the only person left in my compartment a man came along to shoo me out and into another room. It took a second for me to deduce that he wanted to clean, and because other people had departed (this was about three hours to my eventual arrival at 12:30pm) other cabins I could easily be consolidated into one of those. This is quite practical thinking, but being as this is something that wouldn't happen in the States I was initially surprised by it. Great idea though, and the guy gave me a handshake once I understood and moved my things for him. Anyway, it was a great trip. Scenery closer to Da Nang is gorgeous. Did not buy any food on board, just brought some leftover pizza as dinner (do go to Cugini in Tay Ho, if you're in the area). I waited until I got off the train to get anything else. Hunger doesn't bother me much, and I knew there would be better food in Da Nang than whatever I might find on the train.

After reading lots of horror stories we were both pleasantly surprised by how easy, safe, comfortable and clean our journey was. The toilets had hand soap... Something I'd previously not seen yet in Vietnam so a big thumbs up there too. It's a long journey but we slept for 1/2 of it, didn't even hear many carts going past selling things. Perhaps we got lucky but I'd recommend this to anyone with a long journey ahead.

Bed was a little hard but I’ve slept in worse hotel rooms. 1st time I’ve slept on a train so wasn’t the best nights sleep but still got a good few hours. Took my own food but there is a trolley that comes round with some snacks. Plenty of hot water available for pot noodles. Toilet on our coach was blocked and almost overflowing but the next one was working fine. If you want to sit down make sure you take a seat cover and take some toilet paper with you. The views between Hue and Danang are breathtaking! I’d advise any one to to do this just be prepared and you won’t be disappointed

I took the 16 hour train ride from Hanoi to Da Nang. Surprisingly it went by pretty quick than it sounds like. The great experience were the scenic views of vietnam out the window. The meals were also surprisingly good. Not sure about everyones appetite but i had the beef and rice and i liked it. The toilets were what everyone has said to be, so i tried to go to the toilet less. We booked the 1st class sleeper. It consisted of 4 beds in a cabin. The beds were quite hard but they were comfortable enough to have some sleep. We also had a few families cramped up into our cabin for a couple of hours. Im assumed they only booked 1 bed for a family of 3. I didnt mind sharing my cabin with a few more people than what it suppose to be. Despite all the small negatives, i wouldn’t mind to use the vietnam trains to travel again. Thank you! Regards, Lisa

We travelled by train (left 7.30om, arrived 11am) from Hanoi to Danang, mainly for the experience. We booked for 2 x adults and 2 children - 13 and 10. The mattresses were rock hard and we're not sure how often the bed covers were washed. The beds were short (about 6ft, 1.8m) and narrow but we slept most of the night. We ate the boiled eggs, noodles and tea which came around from about 8am. The cabin was clean and contained what we needed. We would definitely do it again. The views closer to Danang were fabulous.

On time, easy to board. Of course the train isn’t the orient express, so manage your expectations and prepare accordingly (tissues, wipes etc, food, water). We felt very safe and the conductor made sure you go off at the right stop. We booked the two bottom bunks in the cabin which gave us the table and ample storage under the beds. Top bunks are accessed with a single foothold and handle - might not be ideal of those with limited mobility

We booked through 12go.Asia and were very happy with the information provided prior to booking and found the tongue in cheek, say it like it is, info provided with the tickets highly entertaining and having lived in Asia for 10 yrs very accurate! For example they say if you may a phone call to the train operator and you sound like you’re speaking Klingon they will just hang up on you! We travelled in a Violette carriage. Boarding the train at Hanoi was easy. We checked in at the ticketing booth in the waiting room and were told our carriage and cabin number. When we went to go through the barriers the same lady appeared and gave our actual tickets directly to the attendant, to stop us losing it I guess! We couldn’t board the train until 30 mins before dept so the recommended ‘be there an hour before’ is actually plenty of time. The cabin was as expected: 4 berths and a table, 4 bottles of water, 4 over ripe bananas and some ( not very nice) chocolate biscuits. A USB port and reading light above each bed. Plenty of space under the bottom bunks to store suitcases but large hard shell ones may not fit. Top bunks have some small storage shelves by the beds. Each bunk has a small rail and a hook, a pillow, duvet and bottom sheet. It did get a bit cold but a a jumper was sufficient and the children said the top bunks were coldest as they were closer to the aircon. ( note we travelled in Dec and Hanoi was freezing so maybe it wouldn’t be cold in the summer, I don’t know!) We read the reviews in advance and so were prepared with extra toilet roll, disposable toilet seat covers and hand soap: all were def needed. We also took rubber flip flops to wear when going to toilet. We had read the reviews about the bedding not being changed and so took our own silk liners and slept inside them above the sheet, under the duvet and with the pillow inside the pillow pocket; seemed a hygienic way around the problem! I had also been warned about the lack of and quality of food but that there was plenty of free hot water so we took plenty of snacks, coffee and hot chocolate sachets and pot noodles. Take your own spoons and cups etc and a thermos coffee cup/ flask for getting the hot water. We also took wet wipes which were great for freshening up on the train and wiping the sink down for teeth brushing etc. We were so glad we did this journey by train. The experience was fun, the scenery was interesting and beautiful. It was much less stressful than flying and probably what me and my children( 16 and 13) will talk about more than anything else when we return from our trip. Additional point: we were in a Violette cabin, the state run 1st class cabins seemed the same except the bottom fitted sheet was more like a thinly padded mat placed on top of the mattress but apart from that exactly the same. Both these carriages seemed to have similar people in them ( I don’t mean race, there was a mixture of Caucasians, Asians, Indian etc) by that I mean friendly and respectful when we walked through the carriages. The locally run 2nd class carriages were the same except that they had 3 bunks on each side so you couldn’t sit upright and less storage space. Because of that there were more people spilling into the corridors chatting loudly or on their phones and gathering and smoking where the carriages connected. It was not intimidating at all but it was quite noisy with chatting and phone calls. Whereas the Livitrains and Violette were quieter and more restful. Equally there would have been more people to share the bathrooms etc. If you choose to take a seat and not a cabin that seemed fine too for the money. We would have considered that had we been just adults but it wouldn’t have been as relaxing. For example some people were playing games on their phones without turning their sound down and that would’ve got on my nerves after 16 hours! If I did it again (and we def would!) the only thing we would take extra would be an eye mask each and some good ear plugs but it was fine - we didn’t really expect a really good nights sleep but what we got was okay!

The train ride itself was fine. I knew it was going to be long and not so spacious. However, I was not prepared for how dirty the hallways and bathrooms were going to be, especially considering the way it was advertised on their own website. Most (if not all) of the toilets were not flushing and considering the fact that the train was bumpy, this was a fairly horrendous sight. It got so bad that we ended up avoiding the bathroom all together for the last 4-5 hours. Furthermore, we were so concerned about the our train from Danang to Ho Chi Minh that we decided to purchase flights instead and eat the cost of the train tickets. A plus was that the last 4 hours of the ride was met with gorgeous views of the countryside and the ocean. So beautiful in fact that it almost made up for everything else. While I am open to this situation being below the average experience, please consider our feedback when determining a flight or train ride.

Also at 4am I was woken up by one of the staff who doesn't speak english well and it looked like he want me to get off somewhere in the middle of the way between Hanoi and Da Nang. It showed up he just want me to go out and show him which bags are mine. Idk why. Second thing what can be improved is cleanliness. There is tons of small cockroaches living in the area where window enters interior wall. One vacuum in this area would certainly help. Otherwise satisfaction. I arrived in time.

Our sleeper was okay but my daughter started shouting in the morning when she saw a cockroach crawling on her bed. Upon leaving the train, my other daughter saw quite a big rat passing through in between the toilet area and the cabin.

The train was very old,dirty, had little mice , beetles , linen not freshly washed. The air con works. There are people getting in and off at all times of the night. ( our cabin mate joined us at 0200 making a lot of noise , lights on etc) The views along the coastline from 0700 on the way to Danang were lovely. It was certainly an interesting part of our tour of Vietnam but not one I’ll be in a hurry to repeat.

Got good assistance getting onto the train. The guys didn't know much English but they tried. However, this was my first and last train experience. There were roaches on my bunk and the toilets were less than savory, wet all over the area. When the stewards attended to the cabins with announcements for food or something, they ignored us English speakers.

Great thing! Do this instead of plane and buses, its a serious experience and the coaches are just fine. Take the 1st class sleeper!

This was my first time on a train in Vietnam. I enjoyed the entire experience. It met all of my expectations. The staff were all friendly and helpful, making sure several times that my destination was Danang. To the complaining passengers - better for you to buy a domestic flight ticket. Or just stay home altogether. Vietnam's a wonderful country.

The train got almost 4 hours delay, otherwise it was very comfortable. Ordering tickets through 12Go was excellent, everything went smooth :)

★★☆☆☆
This train trip was from Hanoi to Da Nang. Postives: the beds were comfortable and appeared to be clean. Negatives: there were mice and cockroaches running around our cabin throughout the trip, which was a bit gross. Additionally people were sleeping on the floor right outside our cabin so we struggled to open the door and then step over to go to the toilet during the night.

I still cannot find where your prices came from. They were more than the guide I've used up to now. The train was as expected. No frills, bed a little hard and a near non-existent pillow! Due to the number of Westerners using this route, the operators could provide more Western food selection maybe? That said, the hot pork and rice that was breakfast, was loved by our 9y old! Bring back 2nd Class non-aircon sleepers...

Our window was broken from train SE 19 coach 9 seat 29 so we did not have a good view. The toilets were disgusting and a cockroach was on my face which woke me up. Not a good experience. I will take the plane on my way back

★★★☆☆
When you arrive at the station, it's not clear at all what to do. Managed to work out which cubical you go to to exchange your voucher for the ticket but it was in unattended right before the bus was due to depart. The guy eventually turns up and was aggressive and dismissive. I then worked out from asking locals that the bus was delayed an hour and a half and to wait on the seats and you'll be called when the bus is ready. Generally just not clear a bit unorganized. The bus itself was alright, though a bit dirtier than the pictures.

Great journey, arrived on time. Good experience. Go up to the dining car for great chat with the locals. Air con wasn’t great. In general, Vietnam Railways are very good.

Enjoyed the ride, especially the views in the morning. However, sleep disturbed by the workers on board, constantly knocking on the door for trivial reasons. Very little difference between VIP and booking directly with Vietnam railways except I paid a lot more for my tickets through Livitrans Express!

The flight was good. They were on time and everything went smoothly. It was a short flight so no food service unless you ordered ahead. The leg room was tight for anyone over 5'10".

Small beds, bad smell, lack of information about the stops, no one speaks English so communication is difficult. We were like 2h late from the arrival time, also the bus left late and it's difficult to find it at the station.

Total confusion at Hà Nội railway station... our vouchers said arrive an hour before the train departure but there were no Livitrans staff members around until around 30 mins prior to departure. The toilets in the sleeping cars are absolutely filthy, the conductor unsmiling, the beds hard and the bedding could be better. All that being said, we were comfortable enough, the trip was an adventure, and we really enjoyed it on balance. The scenery from Hanoi to Da Nang is amazing and the stretch between Hué and Da nang makes it worthwhile.

The beds were tiny. There were too many stops. No communication. Drivers smoked continuously but wasn’t too bad as it drowned out the smell of sweat after the 20 minute breaks in the sun. If you’re under 5’7 then it should be okay but try get a bottom bed so as not to feel scared of falling out when trying to sleep.

★★☆☆☆
We were lucky to have the whole cabin to the two of us, but if it were fully packed, it would've been very cramped. Upper berths seemed difficult to climb up as there were no actual ladders, only a tiny collapsible metal step on the wall you can step on. AC stopped intermittently, which would leave the room hot and humid immediately, but when it worked, it would blast on full power and we were left cold with the flimsy blankets that were provided. The train was very shaky the whole ride, although we managed to fall alseep. There wasn't any onboard marts or trolleys from which we could purchase water or any simple snack, but I would have refrained from doing so anyway just to avoid going to the washroom as it got filthy really quickly. Had better experience taking sleeper train in Thailand.
