I do. That is, when I haven't fallen asleep. The trip just seems longer if I stayed awake than just sleeping then waking up when we've arrived. But it also depends on what movie is being shown, if it's something I don't like, then I'd rather look out the window. It's also fun if you're traveling with firneds, then you would react together. Feels like in a cinema. hehe. Do you enjoy watching movies while traveling on buses, or would you rather sleep?

How do you watch movies on buses? We do have a TV showing "random" TV channels on the buses. If I am not reading a book or listening to music on my phone, then I will watch it. Else yes, I would rather spend the time reading or just listening to the radio. =)

If only I could read while on a bus, then I'd probably be doing it than watching movies. But my eyes have difficulty focusing on the book, so I'll end up with a headache. Good thing your eyes don't get tired. Thank you for your response.

yes, because it entertains me and if theres a 3 to 4 hours of traffic a good movie inside the bus is good to kill the time and you dont get too much bored specially if youre sitting beside a boring person LOL just kidding!

Yeah, sitting beside a boring person would actually kill the fun. But it's also not fun to sit beside a talkative person when there's a good movie on, and one you haven't seen yet. LOL

It is very entertaining to watch a movie as you travel. You may not stop at you right destination-but generally it takes away the boredom and you rarely sleep

i only watch tv/movie in a bus if i like the movie, like i know it and i wanted to watched it before but i wasn't able to, or i got interested with the title and i liked the music while the opening credits is rolling. ^__^ if its on tv then i only watch it if i like the show being shown. but if i don't like it, then i would just sleep because it takes eternity to wait until i get off from the bus. ^__^;; and sometimes because the conductor would turn the tv off and turn on the radio. .

hehe. I also get swayed to watch if the opening music is interesting... I guess it makes you wonder what the story is about. And I hate it when the conductor turns off the tv when I'm watching. hehe. Thank you for your response.

yes I feel it is a nice diversion from the boring travel in the buses. I always feel that the bus journey is not that much enjoyable when you compare it to train, in train you have a lot of space and also you can move around but that is not possible in bus. There you have to just sit and sit and do nothing else. So the movies are a nice way to get distracted from the boredom and also enjoy.

I haven't experienced riding a train, so I can't compare... Being able to move around would be nice, since sitting for hours would make my legs numb... Thank you for your response.

I do enjoy watching movies while traveling on bus. Coincidently I did have the opportunity to watch quite a number of movies which I intended to watch during my leisure time. If it were my favorite one I would continue to watch until the end otherwise it would rather like a lullaby which to lull me to fall asleep easily. Anyhow watching any movies could really kill the boredom and monotony of a long and tedious journey.

Yes, I agree. Especially if you'd be travelling for 6 hours. It's really boring. You'd even get tired of sleeping. ^_^ Thanks for your response.
