A second-class sleeper from Hanoi to Hue on the SE1 (leaving Hanoi at 07:00 p.m) cost 710.000 on October 25th, 2012 (for a hard-sleeper, 6-person cabin, middle bunk ; bottom bunk is a little more pricey while top bunk is the cheapest).
A second-class sleeper ticket from Ho Chi Minh City on the much superior ‘express’ SE2-SE6 train to Hue costs between 588,000 & 740,000 dong depending on the level you’re on (1,2 or 3). SE 2 departs at 7.00 PM. Be warned the beds are quite hard, as there is not much of a matress (about half an inch thick), and it is placed over a plastic bench/seat. You can get other train types, but the little extra you pay is worth it several times over. It offers a wonderful travel experience. The traveler gets to sit, lie and sleep in a very small cabin for 23 hours with five other people (nearly always Vietnamese), eat four plain but tasty and filling Vietnamese meals, listen to a fine selection of Vietnamese pop songs on the PA, and see some incomparably beautiful countryside, particularly in the last section between Da Nang and Hue. It’s an excellent way to see the country and meet ordinary Vietnamese, who are unfailingly friendly and helpful, even to travelers who have not bothered to learn a word of their language.
Phu Bai International Airport is located just south of the central city of Hue, former capital of Vietnam. The airport fields daily flights from ad to Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, but flights are quite often disrupted by bad weather during the rainy season (Mid October – Mid December). Two airlines fly to “Phu Bai” airport: Vietnam Airlines and Vietjet. The airport is 15 kilometers away from the city center and should cost no more than 250,000 VND by taxi (30 minute ride). There is also a bus that will take you into the city and even drop you at your hotel for 50,000VND. You can buy a ticket in the arrival hall of the airport. The airport facility was recently undergoing renovations and has reopened in September 2013.
