- Train Guide
The most comfortable Trains to Book on the Ha Noi to Da Nang route are trains SE1, SE3, SE5, SE7. These trains are newer and have ‘soft seats’ and ‘soft sleepers’. Unless you take the earliest departure you will need to spend 1 night on the train and we recommend booking a ‘soft sleeper’ – the other option, ‘hard sleepers’, are exactly as the name suggests: hard. If you prefer not to sleep on the train then the best departure is train SE7 departing at 06.15 from Ha Noi, it is scheduled to arrive at a reasonable 21:41 and you can probably still get a beer and a snack before you go to check into your hotel.
Times of fast trains with soft seats and soft sleepers. There other slower, cheaper and less comfortable trains which also travel from Ha Noi to Da Nang.
