Exploring Vietnam’s southern coast at Anantara’s Hoi An Hotel and Quy Nhon Villas properties affords the chance to experience two sides of this Southeast Asian country: from the old-world setting of UNESCO World Heritage-listed Hoi An to the idyllic beach scenes of Quy Nhon. Travelling between the two on Anantara’s new luxury train service, The Vietage, adds an additional element to your journey of discovery, revealing lush landscapes and rural villages as the train rumbles through the Vietnamese countryside on a six-hour journey.
Fitted out with 12 large comfy seats, panoramic windows and a private bar, the custom-designed carriage encapsulates the romance of travel in a bygone era. Passengers travelling on The Vietage will be treated to a three-course meal of French-inspired Vietnamese cuisine prepared by Anantara chefs, as well as a head and shoulder massage in the dedicated spa area and free flowing beverages and bar snacks.
Departing from Da Nang every morning and Dieu Tri each evening, the daily return service makes travelling between these two Anantara hotels a highlight of your Vietnamese adventure. One-way tickets cost $185 and for every purchase, $1 is donated to the Dollars for Deeds programme, the proceeds of which go to the Kianh Foundation, a not-for-profit charity for children with disabilities in Quang Nam Province.
