So Cambodia was equally amazing and emotionally exhausting. It was time to move on to Vietnam. We took another bus adventure from Phnom Penh to Ho Chi Minh City. It was another one of those trips that took way longer than what they estimate for you. The border crossing is easy (as long as you have your visa) and you make a stop for lunch along the way. We stayed in the backpacker area—Pham Ngu Lao, located in District 1 where you'll find plenty of lodging and restaurants.
The area is dripping with color and life.
