Dalat to Cat Tien national park - The bus was very good and comfortable and the halfway bus stop was OK too, ant we'd asked the driver to drop us at the post office. He didn't, but went another 100 yards and dropped us in the 'territory' of the local motor cycle taxi gang.

So, I am in Dubai International.airport on my way to Ho Chi Minh City. I count that as exotic. so far the trip is going quite well. Economy class on Emirates is no more spacious than other airlines, but the entertainment system was phenomenal.
