bus Express, The SinhTourist, Aug 18, 2019
We were worried when I found out that I booked the wrong bus online, especially after reading the reviews from other passengers but based on experience, our trip was okay. There was no problem during our cross-border procedure and we were provided with water and wet wipes. The bus attendant was also smiling and friendly. We were late on our original trip but they allow us to take the next trip. On the downside, the claim on 35USD visa processing and the driver leaving those people who processed their own visa is true. We witness how the French couple were left in the immigration even though a passenger told the driver that those French couple are still inside the immigration. I think the driver will still wait for the passengers though, they just want to scare them for not giving them the 5USD commission. The price online is expensive compared to actual ticket.

Le bus affrété par Sinh Tourist était sale et rempli de cartons ce qui fait qu'on ne pouvait pas étendre les jambes sous le siège devant nous. Les explications données sur le trajet étaient claires si on comprend le vietnamien ce qui fait les touristes étrangers ne savaient absolument quel était la durée des arrêts, où se rendre à la frontière, etc... Quel contraste avec les bus de Giant Ibis qui sont propres, avec le wifi, une alimentation électrique à chaque place et un accompagnateur anglophone. Le tout pour le même prix...

A good way to travel from HCMC to Phnom Penh. Customs paper work was done efficiently. Due to road works and traffic jams near PP took the trip 8 hours instead of 6. The WiFi is very unstable.

The staff who worked on the bus for border crossing from Vietnamese customs to Cambodia one provided us the fairly clear instructions on what we needed to do and what he would do before and after collecting the passports of all passengers on the bus, and advised us how much time we would have at each stop during the whole close to 7 hours bus journey. The staff was very polite, professional and friendly. The whole border crossing process was very smooth and for both of us who already had our eVisa print outs ready before boarding on the bus were required to pay USD4 each in cash for the staff to handle the group VIP border crossing process. The driver was also very professional and provided us a safe trip on the road. The bus was clean and comfortable, but the drawback was that the width of seat was a tad narrow than I expected, and thus one star was deducted. Also, I lost my Apple iPhone battery charger cable during the very last toilet stop although it lasted only 5 minutes. I don’t think that it was stolen by the bus driver and staff at all, but the very suspicious Caucasian passenger who was sitting right next to my partner with an aisle in-between. He did not get off the bus during the short toilet break at all when both my partner and I as well as almost all the passengers including the bus driver and staff. I did not find out about the loss of my cable until after I checked in our hotel. So please ensure not to leave any valuable including small items like mobile phone battery charging cable in the bus when you get off regarding how short the toilet stop is. During the whole bus journey, we were given a few toilet stops including two over the border crossings and 30 minutes lunch/rest break.

Initial company, The SinhTourist, was not the operator. We were in front of The SinhTourist office very early but it was said opening at 6:30am which is the bus time of departure. Hopefully they opened before and at 6:20 or some we were able to talk to someone because we insisted a bit. They led us to the bus by car. Inside the bus it was not a sleeper but a seated bus filled with many goods for transport like rice bags under the seats, no space. However the service was good. It was extremely quick and simple at the border, just follow the group. After the border we stopped at a restaurant but be aware they do not display prices and charged us 7,5$ for 3 small plates of rice/vegetables, overpriced for the quality. This break was 30 minutes but no warning. We arrived at 2pm instead of 12:30.

Seats on bus a bit small with no armrest to divide you from your neighbor (but plenty of legroom), but AC was mostly good and we got across the border smoothly. Guides knew what they were doing and driver was safe. Would recommend.

The trip was OK. The bus wasn't new and the driver and conductor didn't speak English, so just beware of the stops of the bus. Be vigilant when crossing the border because the driver nor conductor would not give instructions on what you should do.

Very good! Good quality bus with loads of leg room, water and snack included. Border crossing VIP experience was very easy, English speaking staff. Only thing slight annoyance is having to switch bus half way! No idea why. Also bus took longer than stated, delays with lunch and border - didn’t bother me but if you planning further travel after you may need to consider. Would recommend and travel again!
