Sleeper busOctober 8th, 2008 | Posted by in 06-Vietnam
We finally arrived in Hanoi following an 18hr sleeper bus journey from Hoi An ($18). We have yet to complete a such a journey on time and true to form we were 2hrs late. Not all that interesting but we though you would like to see the inside of the bus.
This journey has been the most comfortable we’ve had to date. Half the bus was your standard upright seats for the short distance travellers and the remaining for long haul. We watched two movies, played on our ipods and talked to our neighbours for the most part. We slept an uncomfortable four hours in total and when we arrived we went to the Chinese Embassy (next post) had a few drinks, a meal and a good 12hrs sleep to catch up.
As I write this post, we are both sat eagerly awaiting the 3rd US Presidential Debate, and hope that Obama can outmanoeuvre that tosser McCain. America and the wider world could do without a repeat of the Bush administration.
