Travel and Sightseeing: By Bus, Train, or Plane?

If you had the choice of traveling across a large country or continent (like Canada, the United States, Australia, Thailand, or Africa), would you rather travel by bus, train, or plane? Please explain your reasons and share any experiences you have had on similar trips. What advantages or disadvantages are there to each form of transportation?

Best,

Randall

I would prefer travelling by train as taking plane sees to be too expensive. And taking bus would make me sick.

I haven't been to another country before. But if I have the choice of traveling across a large country, I think I would like to traveling by train and bus. Because plane is too expensive and I can go to some places by train which is far, then by bus to go to some small places. I think that's the best way for me to go travel.

Actually, I prefer travelling by bus or train, not just because that I have a phobia for height, that way, the sceneries we see are much more beautiful.

I think no matter which one we take, we can have different experiences.I remember I went to the Green island with my family. We took the bus first and then we should took the ferry to the island. It's a special experience.

I would like to travel by train. I can enjoy the views outside the window. And I can go around in the train. It's a relaxing way to travel I think.

I would prefer travelling by bus or train. Because it's environmental protection for our earth. It'll not discharge excessively many gas.

I am Chinthia. Although I never travel to anywhere, I think if someday I can travel by myself, I would like to take bus. Because bus can go towns or little places where train or plane can go.

Rick said...

I've been to England once before. I think travel by bus is quite funny and convenient for a tourist.
You could just buy a map and mark erery place that you want to visit.
And you can buy a day-pass ticket for a lower fare.
Therefor,I prefer to take a bus.

I prefer traveling by train. Because I can see the beautiful scenery outside the window. It is
cheaper than the airplain, and more comfortable than the bus I think. Sometimes the bus make me
sick, so I don't like it.

The exercise 'Bus Travel' in the basic listening exercises gave me a good first experience about this site, although in my opinion this site should have a little higer difficulty level if possible.

I Have been abroad a few times and travelling by plane is the best way, because it's the fastest and your schedual can be controled.However, cost is more expensive while many air-line provide a terrible services.

BB said...

Traveling by plane must be very expensive.I prefer traveling by bus or train, though they are time-consuming. I can enjoy different scenes and see different passengers during the long long trip accross the big country. I yearn to take a trip to America.

I don't like very much sightseeing from a vehicle so I prefer traveling by plane. It is much faster, and I can make use of that extra time for sightseeing.

Hananh said...

I would love to go by car if it's possible. If not, i prefer to go by train because it's to expensive to go by plane.

I come back from Australia. I used much plane to go from a town to a other. But I needed much time before the departure of fly.
For long distances the plane is better than the train or the car, but it is more expensive.
Actually, in Australia there is a pass for 3,4 or more trips between cities. Prices are cheaper.
Buses go from a town to a other, that is less cheap than the plane but the time is longer.
In Australia, there is little train.

I prefer to travel by plane .. Because it means more development and more speed .. I do not like to waste of my time and there is a way faster .. Through my travels to Saudi Arabia suffered a lot because we traveled by bus, where the distance is long and the road clogged a bit .. And I was bored and tired But when I traveled to India by plane and I did not feel the time and tired ..

To choose which means to travell,I will choose bus.Why?Because ,If I travell by train or by plane,I can't see the view surroundings ,and they are also expensive for me.Travelling by bus gives me a lot of chances to see view ,and it is also the opportunities to know the name of many streets.Because of that ,I really want to travell 'by bus.

I think the advantage of travel by bus are:saving money,avoid of traffic jam.but the disadvantage are taking more time and not safe than driving yourself.
