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

Bus will be cheap but scary.

cheapest : bus
quickest : plane

Do you guys know how long does it take for the bus to get to HCMC?? And also the costs of taking the bus compared to the plane??

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...
