Quoting AlexT

adventure travel of the highest order, I think our bus alone knocked over 2 cyclists going through the mountains... I mean they were all air conditioned...

looks like you had a lot of fun on your adventure ...

were the bus drivers drugged or were they chasing cyclists?

hi all!

in reply to this last one i just think they were asian, so driving that way's pretty common...

if u just have 3 weeks u'd better stay in thailand all the time, but if u really wish to add vietnam to ur list, u'd better fly from bkk directly into ho chi minh city or hanoi, depending on what u want to visit. from hanoi u visit the north = hill tribes, ha long bay, motor-rides in fields, hue, hoi an. if u choose the south = ho chi minh, cu chi tunnels, mekong delta, some seaside towns (mui ne in particular), central towns by motorbike. u could do 2 weeks in thailand and 1 in vietnam.

buses are very good in thailand, i used to travel mostly on public ones, but the train is one of the best train services i've ever travelled with in my whole life. i've done the hat yai/chang mai route many times, it's gorgeous. in vietnam i travelled by train on the route hanoi/hue. pretty comfy as well. u have a short time so, of course, open tickets in vietnam are handy, but u should always try to travel with public transports to have cooler experiences!!
