Every traveller you meet who has been to South East Asia has a bus adventure gone bad story. Well I was no exception. This is my story:
I had been researching a lot about what our next stop should be after Hoi An. Hue is famous for The Citadel and the Imperial City and has been on UNESCO World Heritage list since 1993. It was also a convenient 3.5 hour bus ride away. I had read some mixed reviews about Hue but decided to give it a shot!
Booking the bus
I saw a lot of signs around Hoi An for a shuttle that went from Hoi An to Hue. I asked Quyn from my homestay to help me book this and she insisted that it was too expensive and that she would book me a different one instead. We were picked up from the homestay by a small mini bus, which was so overcrowded. This was definitely a sign of things to come…
