We were expecting the worse night of
our lives having read so many horror stories about night buses being
incredibly late, rude staff, no room and broken seats, people and
chickens crammed in the aisles and drivers flashing there lights on
you when you finally give in and ask to stop to go for a wee but were
pleasantly surprised …
The variety of bodily noises, fluids and parts available to us is fairly consistent among all creeds and cultures. They can be funny, if used correctly. We've been discovering, however, that some people view these functions as more public than others. A lot of these people seem to have congregated in Southern Vietnam. If you're squeamish about the …
Our bus trip has been one of the better ones, 4 hours and no problems. When we exit our bus at the station the chaos begins - we miss our free bus ride to the city centre and are surrounded by taxi drivers all telling us where to go, shoving maps infont of us and talking crazy talk.

TravelPod Member ReviewsThanh Thuong Guesthouse Ho Chi Minh City
We stayed at Thanh Thuong Guesthouse in a double private. Our guesthouse and room was nothing special but equally we had nothing to complain about either, apart from the ant infestation! The guesthouse was in a great location, situated on an alleyway adjacent to the main backpacker road with just about everything you could need or want within a few minutes walk. However there are literally hundreds of small guesthouses and hostels to choose from within a few blocks, with so much choice availability is unlikely to be a problem if you want to have a peek before you part with your cash. A great location with okay facilities and service.
