You can reserve your train ticket in advance, even prior to your entry into Vietnam. All you need is to make a booking request on our website. After just a few minutes of checking, we definitely provide you with comprehensive information about the train number, the bed number and the number of berths by sending you the Booking Confirmation via email.
4. How far ahead of time can I reserve my train ticket? Or How many days in advance should I book my ticket?
The specific length of time needed in advance for a reservation could not be provided beforehand. Upon receipt of information about your exact date of departure and the number of passengers, we will check whether or not train tickets are available and then provide you necessary information. Normally, most trains will be available if you book at least 1 week in advance. However, for public holidays such as Lunar New Year (end of January, early February), May Day (April 30th-May 2nd), tickets will be gone long before the due date. If you plan to travel on these dates, reserve your ticket well in advance!
Hoi An does not have a train station and the closest one is Da Nang Train Station – about 30 minutes by bus or car to Hoi An. You can take over night train from either Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City to Da Nang and then take a bus or taxi to Hoi An easily.
You can make payment for your train tickets with major credit cards such as Visa Card, Master Card, JCB, UnionPay or pay with PayPal. Transfer by Western Union is also available on request. Please contact us: if you have any questions about the payment.
There is one day train from Hanoi to Sapa operating daily, called LC3. This train departs Hanoi at 6:10 AM and arrives in Lao Cai at 16:35 PM. The costs for a soft seat on this train is about $20 per ticket and soft berth are not available. It is totally fine that you travel on the day train.
There are buses that you can take from Hanoi airport to Hanoi train station but that would involve changing at least 2 buses. The easiest way is to take a taxi from the airport to the train station, which takes about 40 minutes and costs about $16.
