We booked our bus ticket through a travel agent (Long Phuong) which is on backpackers road almost nextdoor to a great little cafe called the Luke’s cafe. They were very professional here with excellent English and gave us a great price for the Cu Chi tunnels (check out our Cu Chi page) and a bus ticket to Cambodia (520,000 VND for two people both trips).
We left Thao Dien Pearl 10:30 am and got a taxi to Long Phuong, this took about 30 minutes as the roads were pretty clear.
We waited for transport to the bus station which drove us 10 meters down the road to the bus station… It was pretty hilarious!
Got on the bus which was half empty, lots of boxes at the back as usual as they use it as a parcel service too. Got in our allocated seats and off we went.
Everything was running smoothly, the bus driver
