    Train and u can also take pic along the way

    Flights are expensive.

    Don't think there is a train from BKK to HCMC.

    Bus will be cheap but scary.

    indeed there is no train from bkk to hcmc (saigon), check this link for rail routes : http://www.seat61.com/images/RailRoutes-SEAsia.jpg

    I think you'll have to go via Phnom Penh - it's only an hour or so to HCMC from there.

    Time and cost? Not sure.

    Try lonelyplanet website. The Thorn Tree will have your answers I am sure.

    Good luck with the trip

    Bus is a BAD IDEA!!! I've done thailand, cambodia, vietnam and laos by bus.
    Worst bus rides found in cambodia and vietnam. You'll share old buses crammed with mixture of locals and backpackers. Go by train or boat down the mekong, if i'm not wrong...

    You can get to Siem Reap from BKK, then Siem Reap to Phom Penh.

    From P.P, take a ferry via the mekong to Saigon (H.C.M)
