Boarding a bus from Bueng Kan to Nong Khai
We arrived at Bueng Kan bus station just before 9am and were told that the 9am bus was already full. So we had no choice but to buy a bus ticket for 9.30am.
After buying the tickets, we walked out of the bus station and our minibus was already there. 5 minutes later, a man who looked like the driver came and opened the door for us.
He checked our tickets and the bus left without being completely full. The time was 9:10 am. This was a much earlier departure than planned and was great news for us.
