I will be spending the last two weeks of November 2013 in Cambodia and Vietnam.
I am going to Kampot (from Phnom Penh) to stay a few days with some friends. After that I am heading to Vung Tau in Vietnam where I have other friends to visit.
I searched about the best way to go from Kampot to Vung Tao and many suggested to go back to Phnom Penh by bus, get another bus there to go to Ho Chi Min City. Is that the best way? Other says I might going via Ha Tien (I know there is a bus from Kampot) then from there head to Ho Chi Min City by bus or boat (or a combination of the two).
Has anyone done this route already? What are your recommendations? I would like to avoid doing Phnom Penh - Kampot twice and see something new going through Ha Tien, but maybe it is too much of a hassle?
