I just saw there is direct flight costing 150USD to Saigon, which I feel is a rip off.

So, Lotuspearl , just what are your alternatives by air?

Get used to it.

It is a monopoly posing as a duopoly.

If you think 14 hours sitting is a bus is the way to go then go for it.

Such statements as ...It's a Rip Off... always amuse me.

The air miles distance between REP to SGN/HCM is 262 or in Km 422.

Divide the fare by either measurement and you get -

0.35 cents/km or 0. 57cents/mile.

Now tell me please, just how much do you pay for a tuk tuk trip for a couple of blocks? A very low tech trip indeed.

The value is in the eye of the beholder.

You can trade time for money and travel overland.

Or you can trade money for time and comfort and fly.

Nothing is compulsory in any of this. We all have options.

Best regards. Ian/Angkorlad

I just saw Siem Reap to Hanoi direct flights are much cheaper at 60USD, I guess I will spend a day or two at Hanoi and take the 35USD flight Hanoi to Saigon. I think I can cover both the places this way within 100USD.

Appreciate your wisdom Ian.

Yes it is all in the eye of the beholder as I always say "someone's ceiling is another one's floor"

Cheers
