Hanoi to Phong Nha destination reviews

Bus Semi Sleeper, Grouptour, Aug 24, 2019
The bus was very old. Before we started the busdriver had to fix a few things outside the bus, which was not comforting us since the bus looked much worse from the inside. The seats were dirty, the pillows & blankets were old and dirty as well. The bus stopped a few times for picking up random people who were sitting right next to the busdriver. The whole way from Hanoi to Phong Nha we felt very unsafe cause the busdriver drove like crazy. He was always distracted by different things and if that's not enough he talked really really loud and whistled all the way. It was a night bus by the way.
