The fastest way to travel from Hanoi to Da Nang is by plane ( about 1h10 ) but tourists love to take the train in Vietnam. If you have never taken a train in Vietnam, I recommend you to try, it’s authentic.
Each day, there are 5 trains including SE7, SE5, SE9, SE3 and SE1 with many types of seats/sleeves. Therefore, visitors can easily choose a departure time that suits their schedule.
Distance from Hanoi to Da Nang
The distance between Hanoi and Da Nang is about 767 kilometers. The train journey takes between about 15h and 17h. Most tourists travel at night by sleeper train. For this trip, I don’t recommend hard and soft seats for long distance travel.
On the way from Hanoi to Da Nang, the train makes some stops in Nam Dinh, Thanh Hoa, Vinh, Dong Hoi, Dong Ha and Hué.
There are 4 luxury private tourist trains: Lahman Express, Violette trains, New Livitrans and Lotus. It’s more expensive but it’s also more comfortable.
This is the must have. The bunk includes a sheet, a comforter, a pillow and a reading light. You can close your compartment. There are power outlets.
You get the same equipment as the soft sleepers. The difference being that there are six berths per compartment instead of four. The mattresses are also thinner and harder.
