From Bangkok, Hajar took a six-hour train to Aranyaprathet station in Cambodia. After they arrived in Cambodia, Hajar and her friend took a tuk-tuk from the train station to the border control to get their passports stamped. Once that was done, they caught the free shuttle bus to the bus station and boarded a bus to Siem Reap. They arrived at a backpackers hostel and rented bicycles to get around. Very adventurous! 

On the fourth day, they explored Siem Reap but decided not to enter Angkor Wat as they found that the entrance fee was rather expensive. Side note: If you have the budget, do explore the ancient temple as it is brimming with history and full of Instagrammable opportunities! Then, they left the city to travel to Vietnam by bus. First, they took a sleeper bus from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh and from there, they caught another bus to Ho Chi Minh.

 

Cambodia to Vietnam (Day 5, 6 and 7)
Total: RM83.24 + RM44 + RM138.32 = RM265.56

Hajar and her friend went to two cities in Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh and Mui Ne, which was why they spent three days there. The bus to Ho Chi Minh arrived at the city at around 5pm as there was a terrible traffic jam. Once they reached, they sorted out their transportation to Mui Ne for the next day by buying bus tickets and then checking in to their hotel.

On the sixth day, they headed over to Mui Ne in the morning for the beautiful sand dunes that many may mistaken for Dubai instead of Vietnam. Both of them checked in to their hotel and went sight-seeing at four different places namely the Fish Village, Fairy Stream, White Sand Dunes and experiencing the sunset at Red Sand Dunes.

Sounds like a really memorable trip! Would you go on this trip with your friends?
