    Hi guys!

    Im the local Vietnamese and I want to share our worst experience about this bus company in Vietnam: LONG PHUONG bus (green color bus) Thier office in 313 Pham Ngu Lao street inside the backpacker town. We bought 2 tickets there for the back route from Phom Phenh (Cambodia) to Sai Gon. When the bus dropped passenger off for checking immigration in the border, we went inside for checking but figured out that we still had luggages in the bus, so right away I ran out to find our luggages. The bus assistant said that okay, don’t worry, your luggage already checked and done, so I thought it would be okay .

    When the bus started departing from the Vietnam border, I have a doubt that my luggages are not in the bus as they told me. So I asked the driver again and he said he didn’t know, he left some luggages IN THE BORDER OF CAMBODIA side. This was Fu** pissed me off because the bus assistant confirmed our luggages was safe, and now they left our luggages in the BORDER OF CAMBODIA. Then I told them you should not left our luggage like this, we are your customers, at least you should ask if anyone forgot thier luggage, it was your responsibility to ask not threw away the luggages like this. Then the bus assistant got angry and started talking dirty word to me and he wanted to threw my luggage and didn’t allow me to get on the bus again. I’m a LOCAL VIETNAMESE and their treat me like shit ,how about if you guys are foreigners can’t speak Vietnamese?

    NEVER EVER take this bus if you want to travel from Vietnam to Phnom Phenh unless you want to risk to your luggage in lost. This bus is old, ticket is same price as others bus such as Kumhoo, Khai Nam, Danh Danh…but the way they treat customers is bull shit. Please share this story to another forum or friends who gonna to take bus to Cambodia from Saigon to avoid this bus. Feel free to ask me any questions if you want to know more about my worst experience.
