San Jose <--> Orange County for $35

Thanking my friend Jimmy for the tip. 

At long last, the California equivalent of the famed Boston <--> New York Chinatown bus.  Except this time, it's the Vietnamese venturing into cheap-o transportation territory.  Most days they offer one bus at 8:30 in the morning, but on weekends they offer an additional bus at 4pm.

Price includes a Lee's sandwich and a bottle of water.  Not bad considering you don't have to worry about driving or the hassle of clearing security at the airport.

Jimmy's caution: "They do play a Vietnamese variety show the ENTIRE trip so bring something to listen to on your own =P"
