"Let's start with the light first, the buses and bus terminals are in a good condition and they run on time. Also the organization with the mini buses to/from the city center works good. The shadow is the complexity to get a ticket.
We took a taxi to the ticket office in Hoh Chi Minh City and we're told, that they do not sell to for the destination we wanted to go to. We could take one of their taxis for 50000 Dong to go to another Futa tix office. We did so and the taxameter showed only 35000 at this office we finally got our tix. After buying we had another almost 30 minutes with the mini bus to the bus terminal."
