"Phu Quoc to Phnom Penh bus scam!" Phu Quoc Warnings Or Dangers Tip by alduboc

Phu Quoc Warnings and Dangers: 7 reviews and 9 photos

Be aware of the Ha Tien to Phnom Penh scam! In Phu Quoc, agencies advertise a tourist bus service that takes you from Ha Tien to Phonm Penh for US18 (in fact, U$19, give their exchange rate). I was promised no walking, no waiting, and a big bus. As it happens they left us waiting a long time in the border and then put us all in a public van that stopped all the time to fit more and more locals to improbable spaces. Not to mention the driver was very careless. US18 for a 4 hour crowded public van seems like a daylight robbery to me! A scam!

The bus company is:

Ha Tien Tourism
No 1 Phuong Thanh st
Tel: 077 3 959 598
Fax: 077 3 959 599
