Buon Ma Thuot to Gia Lai/Pleiku

IMG_20170626_183019_441.jpg

A big red sleeper bus takes us, the only foreigners on board, from Buon Ma Thuot to Pleiku (aka Gia Lai). It’s a swaying four hour drive along mountain roads. We have top bunks on opposite sides of the bus. The views are brilliant, making this trip good for daytime travel.  The only stops we make are to drop locals at small villages and road junctions.

Hot tips:

  1. Your hotel in Buon Ma Thuot will usually organise a bus for you.
  2. The listed price for the bus is 150,000VND (at June 2017).
  3. Bottom bunks are more comfortable because these are less affected by the bus’s swaying motion.
  4. If you are desperate for the bathroom, tell the driver and he will stop.
