Hoi An does not have a train station. Da Nang station is the closest station to Hoi An. When you arrive at Da Nang station, you will have to take a taxi, a bus or a private car.

There are 2 luxury sleeper cars for this trip: Violette Trains and Livitrans Express. For a 2 hours train trip, there is no interest to book a luxury sleeping car.
