At the launch of the "Central Heritage Connection" train route held at Hue Station, General Director of the Vietnam Railways Corporation Dang Sy Manh said the route is part of the efforts by Thua Thien - Hue and Da Nang to enhance their connectivity and promote tourism.

During the about three hours of this train journey, tourists can admire the magnificent natural beauty along Hai Van Pass, dubbed “Thien ha de nhat hung quan” (the world’s most marvelous wonder) and also among the 10 most beautiful drives in the world as selected by renowned US magazine Travel Leisure, with one side being Truong Son Mountain Range and the other the sea before reaching Da Nang, which boasts one of the six most beautiful beaches on the planet.

On the way back, from Da Nang to Hue, they can set foot in the former capital of Hue, home to various heritage sites.

In particular, riding either trips departing Hue for Da Nang and vice versa in the morning or the afternoon, tourists can enjoy the splendid sunrise or sunset scenes on Lang Co, one of the most beautiful bays in the world, and taste typical local delicacies, Manh noted.

The train used for this route consists of five modern seating carriages and another for community activities. It is expected to become an impressive “mobile” check-in place for travelers.

VIP waiting rooms are also arranged at the Da Nang and Hue stations to serve passengers, the executive said.

The train will be equipped with wi-fi this April to ensure better experiences for passengers.
