IF you have enough dough to charter your own!
OR-simetimes, perhaps, maybe, occasionally, there are cruises that do both countries (in TH thats alas always Laem Chabang-a disgrace to even get into), that may have some unwanted last minute beds left empty and maybe, sometimes, occasionally, there might be some travel-agent in the know and also having the ways of booking you into it-for just that sector. google for starcruises (from Malyasia)
With the recent start of direct bus BKk-PnPN and the overwhelming nr of direct PnPn-HCM buses, its just a 1 change (overnite needed) trip now.

You have two choices, fly or take the bus. The bus will suck a huge amount.

Do you have your own boat? If not, I suggest flying via Bangkok!

Hello,
You have got two options, one is cruise and another one is bus. Going by bus to Vietnam would take at least 15 hours and also you have to take two buses to reach Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam.

For boat, you can check out the following link to check detailed schedule. It will provide you details like hours, price, and all the facilities.

If you are looking for some good vacation type cruise, where you can do some good sightseeing along the way then you have got this below option.

Let me know what’s your opinion on this.
