  • Keep your day pack and valuables with you at all times- Your big backpack or bag will be stowed in the hold underneath the bus. As a general rule, if there’s anything you really wouldn’t want stolen, make sure you keep it on your person
  • Have accommodation booked in advance- When you hop on a night bus, the last thing you want to be worrying about is where you’re going to stay when you arrive all groggy and sleepy at your destination. Hop on the WiFi at your guesthouse, book something and write down the address to give to a taxi driver when you arrive. This way you don’t have to deal with the chaos of locals all touting for business asking ‘you need room?’ when you get off the bus.
  • When you get off the bus, locals will hassle you- The locals know when your bus will be arriving, and they’ll be waiting. While the driver flings your bags onto the side of the road, you’ll often be surrounded by people offering you a taxi or a room to rent. If you already have a room booked, you won’t need to worry about being ripped off on accommodation or running around on a wild goose chase. It will also enable you to have a rough idea of what a taxi will cost, so you don’t get ripped off on the fare either. Ask a few different taxi drivers for a price and haggle with them before you get in.
