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 …
... communicated through pointing or gestures as you do. After reaching the guest house I sat outside for a while making the most of the sunshine while it lasted!

Things were a bit confusing at the station with my train being delayed by half an hour with another ...
... complain when you're paying peanuts for a hair wash and blow dry. I didn't have anything done but was quite happy watching. On the way back we stopped by a local place for some pho bo (beef noodle soup) which was really tasty, then made our way back to the guest house.

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.
