Hello people in Cambodia,
This article is to tell you about my first and last experience travelling with virak- buntham express travel bus. Virak- buntham express travel bus is the most expensive and most terrible bus company you can choose to travel.
Upon boarding the bus from Ko Kong to Phnom Penh I realized the air conditioner was not working. This was on one of the hottest days of the month of April. I tried several times to talk with the driver and the attendant in the bus. They could not speak a word of English so they kept saying NO to me. The girl pretended she could not see me every time I tried to get her attention. So we continued the trip. When the sun began to shine inside the bus I tried to close the curtain only to realize that there was no curtain. So not only the AC didn’t work but the bus was even hotter from the sun shining in. The bus was like an oven. When we arrived at the stop, the driver and other people who obviously had no knowledge of mechanics tried to fix the AC. It took them more than one hour. We were left outside during the hottest time of the day. But I comforted myself thinking that once I went back to the bus the AC would be working. More than an hour later, we go back to the bus and to my surprise the AC was not working. Not only the bus was hot as before but there was a strange smell of fuel that followed us until Phnom Penh. Upon my arrival in PP I tried to speak with the manager of virak- buntham express travel bus. Not only he was completely unhelpful but he was disrespectful. I recommend that if you have to travel by bus in Cambodia to never choose virak- buntham express travel bus. You should choose Mekong or Sorya. Not only their bus is much better and has a functional air conditioner but if you have any problem they are ready to compensate you for your inconvenience.
