We arrived at the train station in Hue hoping to get a ticket to Danang for that day. Unfortunately all the trains were sold out due to student exams.
Mr Pho helped us at the train station before we even found out there were no tickets, updating us on delays and which tickets to ask for. When we were told there were no tickets (which there weren't, we tried to book online too) he took us to his cafe (great food) and helped us book a ticket on a sleeper bus for that day to Hoi An.
He let us use his daughter's lap top to use his wifi and check trip advisor. His English is sensational. He even let us use his phone to book our hotel in Hoi An after he found out there was a festival and it might be busy.
Sure we probably paid a couple of dollars extra (literally only a couple of dollars extra) for our bus ticket but it was still so cheap and convenient for us. He drove us to the bus stop with our heavy bags for free and made sure we got to our seats before he left.
He obviously makes money on commission (maybe 4 dollars max) and when you buy food at his cafe. The bus cost us 6 bucks with free transfers, use of wifi and computer and we were on the super comfy sleeper bus. Plus we got all the way to Hoi An, which we weren't expecting to do in one day.
You can trust Mr Pho! He'll look after you and have a good conversation with you while he is at it! Thanks so much Mr Pho!
