I got a quick question regarding travel possibilities between Cambodia and Vietnam. More precisely, I want to find a route that will take me from Phnom Penh to Da Nang. I've looked into other posts which have suggested going down to HCMC and then taking a flight but I'd prefer to do it by land transport and travel most of the way in Cambodia.
Has anyone done such a route before?
If not, what about bus/train routes from HCMC to Da Nang? I'm having trouble finding good informative sites.
Any info will be greatly appreciated!

Welcome to TT!
I'd prefer to do it by land transport and travel most of the way in Cambodia.
The route could be Phnom Penh-Banlung-Pleiku-Da Nang. I haven't make that route so I'll leave to the experts in that part of the world to provide further details about it. You could need to change transport at the border between Cambodia and Vietnam. There are some old threads in TT with info about how to go from Banlung to Hoi An that also provide some info about getting to Da Nang. You could look for them using the search feature on the upper right corner of this page. There are direct buses from Phnom Penh to Banglung (source; it includes the schedule).

2Overland PP/HCMC is a piece of crumb cake, there are lots of boat/bus combinations that will let you see a nice chunk of the Mekong. There's regular train service (5x a day) from there to Danang, about the same price as flying, but you can stop in Mui Ne or Nha Trang.
That's an awesome idea!
OP, eastern Cambodia is shot through with little mini-van companies, you may have to do it in several steps, but it'll be easy, if you don't mind risking an unplanned but pleasant night in some microscopic Khmer border town.
On the way, don't miss Kratie, home of the famous Cambodian mountain dolphins.
