I have never traveled to or through Asia---- mainly Vietnam and Cambodia. How reliable are the buses? Is there any advise anyone can give me traveling through these countries and/or crossing the boarders. I've read some blogs, and I'm not seeing a positive response about the buses. Any info anyone can give me would me great!!
This is probably a silly question. This July/August, I am traveling through Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos. I set-up a general plan by starting in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam then going to Cambodia, Laos, and then to Northern Vietnam traveling south to my original destination. A lot of the information I'm getting from the internet talks more doing this trip in the opposite direction. Is there a better way: west to north to east to south OR north to east to south to west.
I am planning on taking a train from Ho Ch Minh City to Hue and another train from Hue to Hanoi. If I took both of them as overnight trains, would I be missing too much of the scenery? Or should I only pick one for the overnight ride?
