How Was The Journey

Physical Road

Slept through the 5-hour journey like a baby. This road is in good condition, there’s not much rough roads.

How Many Stops

Even if I mostly slept, still noticed that it stopped in provincial bus terminals to take on passengers. At every stop there’s food and toilet facilities; just be sure to inform the conductor in case you’ll take long.

People Culture

My impression was that I rode with the lots of friendly and hospitable people.
