Pros and cons

Pros: Bus is the cheapest means of transportation that you can think of.  Travelling by bus, you can save a quite fine amount of money compared to the aeroplane, train or private transportations. In addition, buses are very easy to book and if you want to cancel your tickets, it’s even easier. Just inform them 24h before the departure and you won’t have to pay any fee, you don’t have to deposit for the tickets either. If you choose the night bus to travel, you can also save another night for accommodation. This will help you discriminate a lot of travel costs to save it for a longer journey, or you can come to more destinations.

Cons: If you are on a tight schedule, a bus may not be an ideal option. This sort of transportation takes you nearly a whole day if you can’t book for the night buses and that’s a terrible time-wasting way to consider. Besides, all bus providers on this route are local, serving mainly local passengers so you will easily be messed up while booking your ticket directly. Most of the staff don’t speak English, or just a few if you’re lucky. And you should be aware that there will not be a good place if you love privacy, especially when travelling long distances. The cabin sleeper buses are more expensive and normally the ticket will run out quickly. So think carefully about it and choose the best transportation for yourself.
