Vietnam’s Luxury Train

Anantara, a major player in the hospitality industry, has introduced a new five-hour luxury train service in southern Vietnam. This route connects the resort destinations of Nha Trang and Quy Nhon and follows the success of “The Vietage by Anantara,” a six-hour journey launched in 2020 between Da Nang and Quy Nhon.

Kate Jones, Anantara’s head of PR and marketing for Vietnam, explained to CNN that the new route aims to showcase more of Vietnam’s scenic views. Unlike the first route, this one passes through numerous coastal areas, offering views of stunning bays, coastline, mountains, rice paddies, and lotus ponds.

The trains on this route travel at an average speed of 51.9 kilometers per hour (32.2 mph), allowing guests to enjoy a complimentary afternoon tea set, including local caviar, Vietnamese artisanal cheeses, cold cuts, and premium teas. The six-hour Da Nang to Quy Nhon journey offers a three-course gourmet meal. Both routes provide complimentary snacks, drinks, and a 15-minute head and shoulder massage. The Vietage carriages feature a sit-up bar, restrooms, and six private booths equipped with power outlets, Wi-Fi, pillows, and blankets.

Seats can be reserved online at Packages combining rail journeys with stays at Anantara’s properties can be booked through the respective hotel websites. A one-way Vietage journey costs $420 per person, with the new route departing Nha Trang at 2 p.m. and arriving in Quy Nhon at 6:29 p.m
