Booking Coach out of Vietnam

Posted by jimbojh on 10/2/2016 at 08:28

Hi,

I am travelling to Vietnam in June and plan to stay there for about 3-4 week before moving on to Cambodia. The travel agent we booked our one way flight with told us we would need to book on going travel before leaving for Vietnam as they sometimes pull you up at the border and ask for this.

Now I have seen that you can bus from Ho chi minh city to Phnom Penh but I cannot find where you would book this in advance as it look like something you would book a few days before you travel? Any ideas because Ideally I dont want to book a flight out of Vietnam that will ultimately be wasted?

Check out https://12go.asia
Haven't used it personally, but others have reported it to be a good reliable service.
They book the ticket and email you a confirmation PDF file that you print out as "proof" of onward travel.

As i know you don't need to book bus before travelling, you can buy ticket at station.

in Vietnam you can not booking online for bus. You can go to Ben Thanh bustop and ask to book a bus ticket from Ho Chi Minh to Phnompenh. Or you can go to Pham Ngu Lao street there are a lot of travel agent there to book.

Thank-you for replies...



If I cannot book a coach online as some of you are saying... how would I make this proof of onward travel before I arrive?
