Accepting e-tickets or m-tickets instead of pdf hard copies would be beneficial for both nature and passengers. Thank you!

We were very nervous after reading lots of reviews and watching YouTube reviews of this bus company as well as others. We took the chance and were so glad we did! Giant Ibis was on time, clean, cool (A/C), smooth drive, EASY VISA PURCHASE and quick and easy transit through both Vietnam and Cambodia borders. Our bus conductor spoke English, was kind and helpful with our questions. They took care for us every step of the way. Once onboard we were given a banh mi sweet bread and bottle of water. At the border you get a 30 minute 'lunch break' which was at about 1030am but the food we bought from the duty free shop restaurant was tasty and inexpensive. Some reviews say this is unnecessary but we realised that this break is mainly to give the conductor time to apply and receive all our visas. Worth it to let them process your visa rather that deal with an e-visa. We were very happy with this service and the journey. Thanks so much Giant Ibis!

Comfy and clean. Crossing border was easy, just give your passport and money to the bus operator and they take care of everything. Stick with your group and remember what your bus looks like :)

Great service, on time and was a lot of help through the visa process, made the whole journey very easy. Only negative was the air con was so weak and occasionally blowing out warm air so we were uncomfortably hot by the end of the trip.
