Tam Coc to Phong Nha
Mar 2020 • Couples
I read lots of scare stories about Queen so we cancelled our ticket and went with Camel. The bus was clean, air con worked and we slept well. We stopped for about 30 mins after about 50 mins so the driver could eat - some communication would have been great so we could have known we had time for coffee etc. Apart from that, we were very happy and we were early!

Hotel scam... beware
Feb 2020 • Friends
Booked through our hostel from Hue to Ninh Binh. Although we managed to get seats which were comfortable, had air con and blankets, others were sleeping on a mat on the floor. Stopped at dinner time for half an hour at a local restaurant. We were told that we would arrive in Ninh Binh at 6:30am so we accordingly booked a hostel whose reception opened at 6am. HOWEVER, we arrived in Ninh Binh a whole 3 hours earlier than the supposed arrival time outside a dodgy looking hotel who were very persistent on selling us a room for the night....... seems fishy to me. Be prepared for an early arrival and having to book a room for the night despite Asian timings which are usually late.

Horrible service. Avoid if possible
Jan 2020 • Friends
I am currently boarding a sleeping bus from phong nha to ninh binh. We paid 400k VD per person. It was supposed to be 9 but arrived 30mins late. That's no issue compared to when we actually got on the bus and couldn't find empty seats. Not to mention 2 people are already sleeping on the floor. After we finally managed to be seated, the guy incharge just climbed up and started talking, in vitnamese ofcourse. And when we couldn't understand what exactly is he asking for, he very rudely crawled next to me, threw my backbag to the side to pull up a mattress to give yet another person who'll be sleeping on the floor. I can't wait for us to arrive safely as it's going to be a long rough ride. Bottom line, don't trust booking agents nor hotels to book your bus tickets.. either do it through the company itself, surely avoid Camel. Or just take the train! The cheapest ticket on the train is far better that this.

Be prepared

My friends and I travelled from Ho Chi Minh to Nha Trang on a luxury sleeper bus and had our own private semi reclined chairs and curtain. Nice to have space but not as comfortable as it seems once in there for 6+ hours. Also the crew don’t speak any English so can be difficult to understand when the toilet breaks are. There are no toilets on board but they stop regularly. I was frightened that they may have forgotten me as can be difficult to tell who is on or off the bus.

The second bus from Nha Trang to Hue was just a typical night bus. We took five seats at the back and spread out between the Three is us. Still uncomfortable but we managed to get some sleep. i took a sleeping bag liner because the seats were pretty gross

Tips before you go
1. You will most likely be transferred to the sleeper bus by a shuttle bus. Don’t panic. They can’t speak English so just point and can be very confusing
2. Assume there is no toilet on board
3. Be aware that the bus may be delayed (was delayed 2 hours for us)
4. Go in with low expectations. After all we paid total $30AUD for two bus rides. What can you expect?

Bus was 1 hour too late, but all the rest was ok
Dec 2019 • Solo
I traveled from Ninh Bình to Phong Nhà. The bus arrived 1 hour later, but it was okay. I could actually sleep and the driver drove normally. Apperently it did stop but as I was quite tired I didn't hear it. So overall a good experience.

Disaster
Dec 2019 • Couples
Never ever use this company. They are using their sleeping buses as postal service and you are more as a package than traveller. Bus stops million times to leave the packages for locals. They didn't even gave a bottle of water during almost 19h of travel from Tam Coc to Hoi An. Then they drop you off far from city center so you have to take taxi.

Bad experience
Nov 2019 • Couples
Myself and my girlfriend travelled with this company from Hanoi to Phong Nha. The bus is dirty and smells alot, the blankets they give have never been washed. The staff did not speak english, was aggressively rude to a number of passengers. I highly do not recommend this company.

Good bus, ignore bad reviews!
Nov 2019 • Couples
We got the Camel bus from Ninh Binh to Hue and had pretty low expectation after reading the reviews! The bus was absolutely fine, seats/beds were comfy, and we departed on time and arrived early. The only two things I would comment on is that the bus was very hot and bags were slightly damp, but overall great bus for the price you pay!

Bad experience with the company- ordering camel you get SinhTourist
Oct 2019
The bus that picked us up was too full and did not have enough space for everyone. So we had to transfer. In the second Bus the driver was smoking, driving like crazy and honking all the time. The sink in the toilet did not work. The seats are filthy and the blankets stink. The bus also has no usb plugs to charge the phone. The toilet stop was disgusting. The toilets were dirty, had no toilet paper and no mirror.
