When we think of “luxury travel', all-inclusive beach resorts, iconic cities to splurge on, and flying high in first class probably come to mind.

But what about trains?

It seems there are new train routes launching every week across the globe as many of us are opting to explore the world by rail.

There's a common saying for travelers – “it's not the destination, it's the journey”. In this case, it's both.

Southeast Asia is seeing a surge of travelers, especially Vietnam.

A new train route launched by luxury brand Anantara makes this stunning country even more enticing to visit.

Not Just Temples And Cheap Food – Vietnam Is A Stunning Beach Destination

Vietnam's rise to new heights is certainly attributed to the country's fascinating culture, cheap eats, and eye-popping sites.

Nha Trang, Vietnam

As phenomenal as inland Vietnam is to explore, whether hopping aboard a scooter and hitting the open road or going from market to market, one thing is for sure – Vietnam is a stunning beach destination.

Vietnam's major cities, like Ho Chi Minh, and the countryside make for an epic travel adventure, but the country's beaches are now stealing the spotlight.

This Southeast Asian treasure is no stranger to awesome trains, especially along the coast. In fact, we reported on the scenic route from Da Nang to Hue in recent months.

Now, Vietnam has leveled up to a new luxury experience connecting a pair of gorgeous resort destinations along the coast.

Ride In Style From Nha Trang To Quy Nhon

The ‘Vietage by Anantara' route was first launched in 2020, and we all know what happened that year…

Asia was deemed a no-go zone back then, so this awesome travel experience fell off most travelers' radars.

Asia, especially Vietnam, is back to being a hugely popular destination and even more so with the latest train.

The ‘Vietage by Anantara' is a 6-hour train ride connecting travelers from Da Nang to Quy Nhon, but the new route will now head in the opposite direction, exposing more of Vietnam's wonders.

Coastal train route in Vietnam

Travelers will be able to visit lesser-known coastal regions that often go overlooked by other areas with more notoriety.

Don't worry, though; this journey is not an off-path snooze-fest to nowhere.

Expect plenty of scenic rice fields, lotus ponds and striking views of some of Asia's finest beaches along this 5-hour ride.

If possible, you will definitely want to score a window seat. While it's common to instantly associate Asia with bullet trains, this ride goes low and slow for better viewing at just 32 mph.

No need to worry about blurry photos.

Cushy Amenities

When we hear of “tee time”, oftentimes we think of hitting the links. But here, “tea time” takes on a different meaning, along with some extra cushy amenities to good to pass up

While they say, ‘America runs on Dunkin', Vietnam runs on tea. Guests will receive a complimentary tea set as a small token of this train line's appreciation and it's packed with goodies.

Free caviar, anyone?! That's right. You'll also get free local tea, caviar, and artisanal cheeses to snack on.

Additionally, passengers can move about the slow-running train and hit the bar for free wine, cocktails, mocktails, teas, soft drinks, and of course, coffee for Americans who just can't help themselves.

Traveler using laptop on train

Vietnam may be an old, historic country, but its new train is equipped with all the latest gadgets for modern-day travelers.

While it's never a bad idea to bring a portable battery pack, this train has you covered with 6 private booths offering power outlets, charging stations, and even free wifi.

Surely, nobody would want to take a nap and miss out on the stunning views, but blankets and pillows are provided as well.

How Much Are Tickets?

With luxury comes premium prices. Travelers may have to dip into savings to book a ticket, but it sure sounds worth a splurge.

Train tracks in Nha Trang

The cost of a one-way ticket is $420 per person.

The new route departs from Nha Trang at 2pm and arrives at Dieu Tri Station in Quy Nhon around 6:30pm.

Those preferring to go the opposite direction, travelers can depart Dieu Tri Train Station at 2:15pm and expect to arrive at Nha Trang Train Station shortly after 6:30pm.
