The Vietage Launches its Second Journey in Vietnam

Anantara’s luxury rail experience will operate daily return service between Nha Trang and Quy Nhon.

Vietnam’s foremost luxury train experience, The Vietage by Anantara, launched its second railway carriage this week. It will operate a daily return journey between the coastal cities of Nha Trang and Quy Nhon.

 Building on the resounding success of the existing carriage running every day between Da Nang and Quy Nhon, the new custom-designed addition will connect the renowned coastal city of Nha Trang served by Cam Ranh International Airport, offering timeless luxury travel experiences through South-Central Vietnam.

Championing slow, sustainable travel, the five-hour journeys meander through the picturesque Vietnamese countryside, transporting guests into a world of glamour and nostalgia with all the comforts of modern luxury.

12 reservation-only seats in private booths of two blend sleek modern interiors with inspiration from Indochina, along with big picture windows to admire the stunning views.

 A sit-up bar invites guests the chance to watch some mixology in action as the on-board hosts create rail-inspired cocktails and mocktails, while relaxation time beckons in the dedicated spa area for 15-minute head and shoulder treatments on the go.

 A sumptuous afternoon tea experience takes guests on a culinary adventure, including poached Bai Dai Lobster and Da Lat Caviar to whet the appetite, a tea tower with a selection of home-made finger sandwiches, pastries, cakes, and traditional scones with all the trimmings. An artisanal cheese and charcuterie platter rounds off the occasion. A dedicated vegan menu is also available.

Refreshments come in the form of a distinctive tea selection from the Vietnamese tea brand Epicurean Sao, ethically sourced local coffee from La Folliet, plus free-flowing wines, cocktails, beers, mocktails and soft drinks.

An à la carte menu also offers premium wines and champagnes for pre-order, while caviar fans can purchase extra portions on board. 

Catch a glimpse of water buffalo, Vietnam’s national animal, as the train makes its way through the country’s landscape, along with lotus ponds, rice paddies and plenty of flora and fauna.

Striking stretches of coastline fronting the East Sea and expansive bays are also not to be missed, after which the train heads more inland into the mountainous province of Phú Yên, which is home to one of the country’s Champa people communities and many historical points of interest.

 While not visible from the railway itself, the train passes near Vietnam’s oldest lighthouse, Mui Dien, which sits at the easternmost point of the country making it the first place to witness the sunrise. Continuing its northerly track through the province’s capital city of Tuy Hòa, Vietnam’s longest wooden bridge, Bình Thạnh Bridge at 800 metres in length, is a gateway to some other local notable landmarks.

Guests travelling from Nha Trang to Quy Nhon can enjoy combination accommodation experiences with Anantara Quy Nhon Villas for a luxury beachside retreat. For the ultimate Vietnam itinerary, jump on board The Vietage by Anantara running from Quy Nhon to Da Nang and enjoy the charming Hoi An Ancient Town with a stay at Anantara Hoi An Resort.

The Vietage by Anantara departs from Nha Trang every afternoon arriving at Dieu Tri station in Quy Nhon in the evening. It then continues up to Da Nang arriving after midnight. Running in the opposite direction, The Vietage by Anantara’s additional carriage departs from Da Nang every morning, arriving at Dieu Tri station in Quy Nhon in the early afternoon and then onto Nha Trang for a mid-evening arrival.

The Vietage by Anantara contributes to the ‘Dollars for Deeds’ programme, in which US$ 1 per ticket is donated by us and guests are at liberty to make their contribution. Donations are given to The Kianh Foundation, a not-for-profit charity providing a full-time, customised, special needs curriculum for children with disabilities in the Quang Nam Province of Central Vietnam.
