From Saigon we caught a bus to Mui He a small coastal beach town about 5hrs drive away. This bus journey was unlike any other, it seems Vietnam have nailed bus traveling…Why? The seats are horizontal! Known as sleeper buses, most private bus journeys are like flying first class. You can stretch your legs out, cover up with a blanket and catch some Z’s with ease. These buses are a million miles from the bus journeys in Cambodia.
After Jakarta we headed by train to Bandung. We sat in executive class seating. I know how lavish that sounds and we’d recommend it if you want a straight forward ride. I think it just means more leg room and quitter people to share the cabin with. Our assigned seats had been taken by other people, so Stephen sat behind me instead. No biggie.
