There are 3 main transportations that you can enter Vietnam:


Cambodia is a neighbor country with Vietnam, so it just takes you about a 5-6 hours to arrive in this S shaped country through border gates. You don’t need to worry about which border gate the bus will come across and your visa is accepted or not, they will make sure that you can totally enter Vietnam through this transportation.
