The bus was not very confortable for such price. We waited an hour in Pnomh Penh before the 2nd bus, and the staff kept saying "don't go out to buy food because he will be there in 10minutes". Eventually we arrived in Sihanoukville 3 hours late and the driver of the minibus refused to drop us at our hostel, given us no choice but to buy additional taxi. We have never been treated like this before in our trips in Vietnam..
