Passenger reviews out of total 17,474 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.

I was first dropped off on a busy route without an english speaking guide. Then after making myself angry, he let me into the bus who was a sleeping bus. For me was the length okay but for people taller than 1m64, it must have been a horrible trip. Then in the middle of the night (at 3:00am) we stopped in a place with no lights, in the mudder. There were toilets but they were very dirty. We were able to sleep until 6:00am in the bus on that spot, which I didn’t know. I booked a hotel that night, so I lost my money then. No communication and no english speaking guide! Not nice!

The decoration in the train was classic and beautiful. The ventilation was ok. A bit bumpy, the birth was better than the train from South to North. The pillow and blanket liked clean. The toilet at the beginning of the journey was clean. The train officer had proposed the 16 seat from Loa Cai to Sapa at 50,000 VND (from the Loa Cai station direct to the hotel in Sapa)

Ok the “train” is actually a railway cart, using the words luxury or delux is not going to change the facts its a sleeper cart from the 70is and has no sound dented what so ever. Be advice take the sleeper bus or rent a cab it’s cheaper and more luxury.

★★★☆☆
For the majority of the journey, there were alarming sounds coming from the outside of the carriage - a series of explosive bangs, clangs & dragging noises which reverberated through the carriage, making it sound like the carriage was about to fall apart! It was difficult to sleep because it was so loud. The driver made a few sudden stops throughout the night as well, which jolted you awake. The staff were grumpy if you didn't want a coffee (for 120,000 VND!!) The berths were fairly comfortable though & the free snacks/water were appreciated. Also, the process of buying & collecting tickets was made easy through 12go Asia.

Overall our trip was very very good. Easy picking up tickets, attendants pointed us to correct train car, etc. Cabin was clean, with clean sheets. We saw that there was WiFi but never got the password. Train bathroom was questionable but not the absolute worst. No toilet paper when we first arrived, but it was refilled the next morning. There were 2 sinks separate from toilet so you can brush teeth, etc.! We got a 2-person private cabin, so the mattresses were doubled up, firm, which I liked. Train is rocky and loud so bring ear plugs! Would do it again!

The whole cabin had an underlying toilet stench which took a long time to get used to (unfortunately the only option). The ride was too bumpy, I consider myself a deep sleeper and even I woke up 3-4 times at night, while some in our group weren't able to sleep at all. The AC didn't turn on for the first 3rd of the trp 2 starts only because it got us to sapa on time and the bed/pillow/sheets looked clean.

Reached hotel 30 minutes earlier than expected; fast n car is comfort. Driver need to focus on driving typically drive along the Sapa hill route. Making numerous call when driving at hill road is dangerous. My parents was sat at the end seats, very shaky n bumpy because of the uneven road. Like a roller coaster. Recommend driver may slow down when passing the bumpers road in future. Overall my experience is good, driver driving behaviour need to improve. Have a bit of interaction with passengers would be great

★★★★☆
The train bed is small but just sufficient space to sleep. The toilets are not the cleanest so if you want to use, use it before sleeping. Someone will knock on your door to wake you up in the morning - to sell you coffee/ tea/ hot chocolate. There is a toothbrush set, some crackers and wet wipes provided on the train as well. Also refrain from bringing a large luggage as the room had not much space to walk. 12go.asia is reliable! Managed to get my tickets at the location they mentioned as well.

Very disorganized. The company booth is at the other side of the train station (Google map it before you go). They don't have offices, instead tickets are sold in a small snack shop by two bored teenage girls. The train is a bit crappy but is ok, sometimes smells like cigarette. Toilets are very clean. The beds are quite ok and the staff inside is helpful.

A bit expensive than actual price but it makes sure that I will have a lower bed. The train departs exactly on time. No whistle of the train during at night, doesn't like day train.

The driver was quite arrogant and very grumpy - quite scary driving as well - passing on corners etc. It was meant to be first in first served but there was a seat reserved which I didn't think you could do? The driver told us to move because a group of 4 were getting on and they wanted to sit together so my daughter and I had to sit separately which I didn't quite understand. But nice and comfortable van and on time. However, unfortunately I wouldn't recommend this company.

Driver put our backpacks (containing clothes and electrical equipment) in a muddy puddle while rearranged the luggage to put some other passengers cases in the back. We had stop to change a flat tyre, which is obviously not the drivers fault and cannot be helped. However, to make up lost time he then proceeded to drive in a very dangerous manner, over taking large vehicles on windy mountain roads in heavy fog and almost causing multiple crashes by overtaking in small gaps on the highway. He said he would drop us off at our hotel in Sapa, when we arrived in town he rushed us out of the van again dumping our backpacks in the muddy street and gestured up a hilly road, saying "hotel". We arrived after a 10 minute walk up a steep road with all our luggage. The bus was very comfy, but the driver needs to be reprimanded for his rude service and dangerous driving.

Comfiest journey I’ve had in SE Asia. Don’t sit in the front right seat it’s reserved for the “elderly” (aka the drivers mate). I sat there for 45 mins (as the bus was late setting off) and then before setting off I was told to move. They do have a sign which was produced from the drivers bag... maybe put this on the seat to start? But to be fair I didn’t mind moving and I had a very comfy ride. All the staff were lovely, 2 stops for toilet breaks along the way, the staff keep you well informed of the journey and the driver drove very well. I am 5ft2 and fit well in the seat, my boyfriend is 5ft8 and was a little squished but it was nothing in comparison to the sardine vehicles we endured in Laos. I slept for 3.5 hours (oops).

★★★★☆
A nice trip from Hanoi to LaoCai with the overnight train. No need to take the expensive private coach, this one was very good, with clean rooms, clean bed liner and clean shared toilets. Compared to many comments I have seen, the AC temperature was just right. Only 4 stars because the ac was a bit to noisy, and the bed a bit too small for me (1.85m). I recommend !

Very good, except the unexpected detour that took us longer and made the ride a bit more bumpy and curvy.

★★☆☆☆
Extremely unorganised. Arrived at the office 45 minutes before, as instructed by the email to find the office closed. Did not open until 9 (when we were scheduled to leave). We were then put on a shuttle bus and made to get out by the side of the road, to have the guide put us back in a taxi to where we’d just come from?! We got on the correct bus 45 minutes late, were shunned to the back where one of our seats had a nail sticking out of it and the bus was so over subscribed people were having to sleep in the aisle. The toilet was broken and we made no bathroom break in 6 and a half hours. The bus stopped at 4:30am but we didn’t get off until an hour later. We were made to sit stationary unaware of what was going on but unable to move for the aisle being littered with backpacks/people. It is unreasonable to make people pay to be transported like cattle.

Van is comfortable, we arrive at 7am at hanoi office but we couldnt choose seats as other People were in the van al ready. Trip took 2 more hours than what they said. Driver is extremely aggresive driving, but so are the others in the road...

Considering that this railway is from 1900... and average speed is 40kph, you can sleep. One thing, sometimes the air conditioning is really too cold. We used paper to limit the air flow.

We booked the 1st class sleeper train and as far as I can see, apart from the carriage itself, everything looked like we booked a tourist cabin. We even had complimentary water, snacks and tissues. It seemed like pillow cases and sheets were fresh but not sure about the duvet though. It was a very pleasant ride and slept well. Toilets were clean enough. There was hot water and toilet paper. So overall worth 4 stars! Will do this again soon!
