Bus Semi Sleeper, HTX Van Tai 277, Sep 23, 2019
Trip went smoothly. Drivers didn't speak English so we didn't know at first what to do at the border. Good thing some people who were with me in the bus helped me with the process. Wasn't as bad as I thought the trip was gonna be.

Well, you get what you pay for. It did say on the ticket don't expect much. But I thought it was fine. Staff don't speak English, but as long as you are nice and polite they are also nice and polite so no big deal. No toilet but they make plenty of stops, and I got the feeling that if you asked to stop to use a toilet that would be no problem. Towards the end of the journey, the air con started leaking hahaha was a bit crazy but all part of the fun. Yeah the border is a little hectic but everyone finds their way. It's not up to the bus driver to hold your hand. All in all I thought it was fine and would probably do it again.

To be honest even just sitting on a bus for 24h is not a 5 star experience in general. But a toilet and wifi would habe definitely make the time on the bus better. It is true - bus full of stuff like packages, ready-to-sell-tshirts and ohter things. You got your seat and that’s it - no wandering around as there is people (even staff) laying in the narrow walkway. We got brought to the passport-check-out in Vietnam at the border (btw. 1 USD) and then to the Laos border where it was a little chaotic. But well the bus waited for everyone (at least it seemed like it) and we made the it to Vientiane. Earplugs are a must.
