Cambodia queries - advice needed

Hey, I’m travelling to Cambodia in June and have a few queries. I’d appreciate any advice: 1) Where is the cheapest place to get a Vietnamese visa in Cambodia? How much does the visa cost and how long does it take to get done? 2) Do you have to book inter-city bus tickets (eg: G.S.T Express Bus Service, Phnom Penh Sorya Transport Company bus tickets) a day in advance or is it ok to just turn up at the bus company’s bus stop and simply purchase tickets for travel that same day? 3) ...
