Departing from its inaugural journey on 1st July 2020, The Vietage developed by Anantara introduces memorable journeys between Anantara Hoi An and Anantara Quy Nhon Villas, a unique Vietnamese luxury travel experience to its guests.

The Vietage carriage is equipped with sleek-lined modern interiors, big picture windows and large comfy seats. Once inside the carriage, its distinctive interiors speckled with hints of IndoChina offers a glimpse of the bygone days.

The custom-designed opulent carriage, with just 12 reservation-only seats, immerses guests into the culture, nature and history of the country through the stories of its daily return journey, heralding a new age of glamorous train travel experience.

During the six-hour journey, guests will encounter a plethora of taste sensations as the countryside rolls by. An exclusively-curated menu evokes the essence of Vietnam with a French twist, through an explosion of creative flavours and local ingredients.

A black inox marble counter bar, styled in a semi-circular shape with sit-up leather stools, adds a contemporary chic and change of scenery for guests to enjoy cocktails, local craft beers, wines and snacks.

Moreover, a dedicated area with spa treatment chairs offers head and shoulder treatments on the go as the train passes through local villages, rural countryside and stops at a few stations on the way.

To note, The Vietage runs for eleven months each year, taking a break during the annual Vietnamese Tet holiday period in February.
