The bus journey was good as I slept for the majority, it took 15 hours from Siem Reap to Ho Chi Minh City including a 30 min stop at Phnom Penh and an hour at the Vietnam boarder to get our visas stamped, finger prints scanned and luggage checked! You have to get your visa for Vietnam prior to arrival at the boarder! We purchased ours at the …
... And we were greeted with not only those smiles, but the most spectacular view of the entrance to the national park... the dazzling green rice paddies, the limestone mountains in the distance, the sparkling Son River, and sunbeams shooting out behind a few low drifting clouds. And Thoai turned to me and said, "Sometimes I like 1 person come with me. If no talk, that's okay. Just come with me... it's enough."
... Floyd and settled down for the night, whilst I befriended Alisha (Vancouver) and Mike (England) - Paul would later say that we were the oblivious happy bus chatters... all night. They were travelling separately but had joined up for a short while in Sa Pa and would be heading their separate ways when they reached Hue. Alisha and I geeked out together on Game of Thrones, having both read the books and arrived at many of the same conclusions as to what was to come. She had done a ...

At $15 a room with free wifi, computers and tea and coffee plus the lovely, very friendly and helpful couple that run it, this is a great guesthouse. It location is perfect, everything is within walking distance, and it's situated down a narrow alley buzzing with stalls and Vietnamese women cooking on the street! I love it!
