ABOUT THE VIETAGE
Central Vietnam’s most exclusive railway experience unites history with nature, beauty with luxury, and excitement with serenity. This elegant 12-guest carriage is a luxury train in Vietnam which links historic Hoi An to the unhurried coastlines of Quy Nhon, 318 kilometres to the south, on a six-hour journey that immerses travellers in the romance of the rails.
Inspired by the beauty of Vietnam and the luxury of vintage rail travel, The Vietage’s six spacious booths feature two comfortable window seats, offering everyone on board views of Central Vietnam’s verdant plains, forested mountains and sparkling shores. This beautifully designed carriage also features its own sit-up bar, gourmet dining, private restroom and a dedicated area for head and shoulder treatments.
The Vietage departs every morning from Da Nang Railway Station arriving in Quy Nhon in the afternoon. It makes the return journey in the late afternoon, departing from Dieu Tri Railway Station in the evening and arriving in Da Nang around midnight.
Once all are on board, the hosts will serve refreshments – guests are welcome to sit at the bar or settle into your window-side seat. Along the way, sip bubbles and taste the flavours of Vietnam as you pass through spectacular scenery, drinking in panoramic views of postcard-perfect terrains. Depending on the season, enjoy lush, monsoon-green landscapes or spectacularly sun-drenched days.
Within Vietnam’s natural splendours, you might also catch a glimpse of indigenous plants and animals, of ancient history, or of local daily life. Bright bursts of frangipanis. Water buffaloes grazing in fields. White cranes drifting across azure skies. Your host will provide you with a ‘Discovery Book’ that provides all the guidance and information you need for a pleasant and comfortable journey.

As you watch Central Vietnam amble by outside, curious sights might catch your eye – the ruins of ancient cities, historical relics, lakes and towers. There are the crumbled ramparts of Trà Kiệu, the first capital city of the Hindu Champa Kingdom; the coastal city of Quảng Ngãi, home to the Long Wall of Vietnam; and the An Khe Lake, considered the cradle of Sa Huynh culture.
