Pros and cons

Pros

The train is a really comfortable way to travel in Vietnam. It’s considered the safest transportation to travel and is one of the most favorite ways travelers choose for their trips. On the train, you can sleep comfortably and there’s a bathroom on every train car too if you need it. Besides the safety and comfort, traveling by train gives you opportunities to have an amazing view of the stunning landscapes from mountain to ocean or the local life from rural to urban. The train is also a really interesting place where you can experience the unique local atmosphere of Vietnam. 

Cons

There is no doubt that traveling by train between Da Nang and Nha Trang is quite interesting and comfortable. However, You will have to experience a long travel time (approximately 10-11 hours traveling). This is not a cheap choice also to travel. The price for a soft sleeper berth is quite high, even equal to a flight ticket in the low season. And in case you are traveling solo, or in couple, you will have to share the compartment with some strangers and this is not really comfortable for introverts at all. So you need to recognize all the pros and cons to make the most suitable choice.

You basically can't come to Vietnam whenever you want to, so we hope you think carefully and make the best choice. And if you need any recommendations from the locals, you can contact us anytime.

Tips to travel by train from Danang to Nha Trang 

While sleeper trains are not the cheapest option to get around Vietnam, there are a few things you should keep in mind for a better experience:

  • You are urged to bring your own bedding and pillowcase if you are concerned about hygiene. If you board from the primary train station, you'll be given fresh bedding,  but Danang is probably not the starting point.
  • The train will be loud and a bit shaky. Bring your earplugs or have some music on for a deeper sleep.
  • The toilet might not be on par with those you have in your hometown. It’s best not to drink too much water, as you might not want to go to the toilet every now and then. Bring along tissues and hand sanitizer too.
  • Set an alarm to get up 30 minutes before your stop. The staff will come and wake you up, but it’s good to have some time to prepare your stuff.
  • Keep your tickets as they might check them once again in the middle of the way.

There are different ways to travel from Danang and Nha Trang, but trains can be recognized as the safest choice to travel. Despite the long duration, you can have time to enjoy the stunning scenery outside the window that the other transportations can’t give the same experience.
