By train

Getting a train with a soft sleeper bed can be a very comfortable option if you want to travel overnight from Hanoi or it’s a very scenic way to travel from Da Nang to Phong Nha.  Train prices vary depending on the type of seat and time of year, but they are generally more expensive than buses and you need to get from the train station in Dong Hoi to Phong Nha

  • Book all trains to Dong Hoi, not Dong Ha.
  • For current train times please visit links:
  • Availability of seats and bookings can be made via this site vetau.com.vn.  Unfortunately at the moment bookings can only be made using Vietnamese credit cards, but this will change, hopefully soon.
  • Once you arrive in Dong Hoi you will need to get the 45km to Phong Nha.  Check out the options for Getting to and from Dong Hoi

Getting from Dong Hoi Train Station to the Central Bus Station (Ben Xe Nam Ly)

If you want to travel from Dong Hoi to Phong Nha via the local bus you will need to get yourself from the train station to the bus station.  It is about a 15 minute walk (1.3km) or a short ride in a taxi.
