We plan to travel in Vietnam and Cambodia using local buses. Anybody has any companies recommendation which are reasonably priced and comfortable enough?
The only one I've ever used was Mekong Bus and I was totally happy with it. I've heard it's a bit more expensive than a lot of other lines, but it was so relatively cheap that I didn't really care. The staff was very helpful and everything went according to schedule (which I've also heard is not always the case).
I'd recommend http://catmekongexpress.com/. HCMC -> PP is $15 (not including Visa) and quite comfortable (you even get Free Wifi in the bus on the Cambodia side). The cheapest you can get from other bus companies is around $10.
Buses within Vietnam:
Locals use http://vexere.com/. While the site is only in Vietnamese, the reviews, prices and phone numbers of different bus companies are pretty straightforward to find. And there is always Google Translate :)
