ĐÀ NẴNG A train route named “Central Heritage Connection” linking Hue city in the central province of Thừa Thiên – Huế and nearby Đà Nẵng City was put into operation on March 26.

At the launch held at Huế Station, General Director of the Vietnam Railways Corporation Đặng Sỹ Mạnh said the route is part of the efforts by Thừa Thiên-Huế and Đà Nẵng to enhance their connectivity and promote tourism. It is a new product that combines transportation and tourism services, promising new and interesting experiences of history, culture, and heritage for passengers.

During the about three hours of this train journey, tourists can admire the magnificent natural beauty along Hải Vân Pass, dubbed thiên hạ đệ nhất hùng 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 Trường Sơn Mountain Range and the other the sea before reaching Đà Nẵng, which boasts one of the six most beautiful beaches on the planet.

On the way back, from Đà Nẵng to Huế, they can set foot in the former capital of Huế, home to various heritage sites.

In particular, riding either trips departing Huế for Đà Nẵng and vice versa in the morning or the afternoon, tourists can enjoy the splendid sunrise or sunset scenes on Lăng Cô, one of the most beautiful bays in the world, and taste typical local delicacies, Mạnh 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 travellers.

VIP waiting rooms are also arranged at the Đà Nẵng and Huế stations to serve passengers, the executive said.

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