Overcharged for sleeping Bus from Hoi An to Hue

We bought a bus ticket from Hoi An to Hue in our hotel (Vaia Hotel) and we were told that it wasn't a sleeping bus. Since we traveling in the morning (8 am) and the trip is not more than 4h we believed it. We paid $7 for it.

When we arrived, there was a sleeping bus waiting for us.

The others tourists had the same info (no sleeping bus). All of them paid different prices. A couple paid $4, a family from Malaysia paid $5 and other ladies paid more than $7.

A girl told us that during the night these buses are even worse because they put lots of mattresses on the floor, around the seats, to charge for more tickets. And there is no space or privacy.

Only 3 post Mark? Why not make 5?

<<if people check with the bus company for their tx, they will get a better rate than any other place

JB that is correct unless the staff of the bus company double price and pocket the difference, like at Hanh Cafe in Mui ne (I need a russian shirt, they ALWAYS get discount.....:-( )

Sleeping bus are a no go at any price also in Thailand, and day bus are cheap so I really do not care if Sinh charge me 109.000d or 119.000d or 129.000d....For a 5 hour trip on a nice bus it's a good value.

John, I am quite calm, as i been living in the countryside here for 19 years, Eat sea out front, jungle clad mountains out back...

i am just amazed at how so many ask others to do heir research then wonder how come it costs more ... and the it is someone else's fault that they paid more ...

we just had a couple come here, they asked their front desk at the local hotel to phone and reserve, she saw a chance to pocket good money on the taxi fare, so she gave them wrong info, they got here and saw it was more expensive ... they returned to the city... front desk did not care, she made a couple hundred thousand dong on the taxi fare ... and they even came back to their hotel... then it was MY fault for misleading them ...

i took them buses 2 times because my daughter wanted to, no more

trains are much better
