If you don’t want to travel for such a long time, then you can also book a flight from Hanoi to Da Nang. Ninh Binh does not have an airport, so you have to travel to Hanoi first. Although the costs can be as low as taking the train, travelling by flight will involve a lot of transfers.

The advantage of the bus is that it brings you directly from Ninh Binh to Hoi An. The disadvantage is that travelling by bus in Vietnam is less safe. It will also save you some money, but keep in mind that the sleeper trains offer much more comfort.
