Back in the early 2000s, traveling between Phnom Penh and Ho Chi Minh city by bus was a pain. It took me all day long to get to Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) from Phnom Penh back then when the roads were not well-paved. It’s a big difference now. You can take a bus from the Vietnamese capital city to the Cambodian city faster than in the early 2000s. In addition to this, booking a bus ticket for Ho Chi Minh to Phnom Penh is really easy. Online service like BookMeBus makes it possible to book your bus ticket for your convenient itinerary.
