    Hi guys,

    Can someone suggest how I could get from Hue to HCMC either by train or bus? Is the train safer then the bus journey? And where can I purchase tickets for either of the journeies?

    I appreciate all your answers. Thank you all in advance.

    Hi Brigitta,

    I believe train should be safer and more comfortable (if you take the soft sleeper) than the bus, though the bus should not be considered as dangerous by any standards.

    And for the tickets, I believe you can purchase your tickets from Hue, HCMC or even in Hanoi.

    I will be heading to Vietnam as well on Dec this year and the above information is from the book I have read and comments from friends.
