We all have funny stories to tell and the most interesting ones to hear are the ones where we got in trouble or when things didn’t go according to plan. Cambodia happened and is one good example. We were coming from Ho Chi Minh City bound for Phnom Penh to ride another bus going to Siem Reap. It was when we arrived at the terminal we were informed that our trip got cancelled, and we had to take the midnight trip. It shouldn’t had been an issue if they informed us ahead, even if the notice came in just the day before, but the thing is Giant Ibis in Phnom Penh kept on saying they sent an email yet they can’t show us any proof. We were so disappointed, but we really had no choice but to just see the places around and hang somewhere for hours. Come midnight trip, we hopped on a sleeper bus and we got to Siem Reap the next day before 6 AM, and we had to change plans due to this mishap.
Every city I visit is a dream come true, and the bustling city of Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam is definitely one for the books. The thousands of motorbikes, the mouthfeel of Cà phê sữa đá, the mixture of the old and the new, the amazing architectures, and the complex flavours of pho. I mean, what’s really not to love about this city? JUST TAKE ME BACK!
