hi friends my latest travel was to Madurai to attend my friend's sister's marriage. i went to Madurai by train i really enjoyed my travel by train along with my friends. according to me travel by train is far more better than the travel by bus. in train you need not to sit at single place. you can relax your self by walking in the train. by traveling in a train you can have nice sleep which is not possible in buses and you have will a toilet in trains which is not possible in buses. so which kind of travel u like?

Hi gangulydada7, Give a choice between these 2, I will choose the train. Over here, I find the train service more reliable than the bus. I know I can likely get to a place via train in x time. But if I rely on bus, well, it is not always reliable...

Given the choice, I too would like to travel by train. I agree with you that train gives us a kind of convenience, which is not possible in a bus. Moreover, condition of roads at least here India is pathetic, therefore, one dreads to travel by road. Bus route may be shorter than the train, however, travelling even in a luxury bus could not be as convenient and comfortable, as in train.

I would say train is a good option for going travel.It is safer than plane and quicker than bus.I visited my friend in another province by railway last year.There i met an American who speaks very good Chinese.We talked all the way until he got his destination.I share my foods with him and we all had good time in talking with each other.It really gives me a good impression on travelling by train not only because i can make friends but also the convenience it brings.

TRAIN ALL THE WAY~~~~ the bus is too jerky and i tend to get motion sickness if the bus jerks too much. moreover, the train has aircon and more space.

I enjoy traveling by train. I find it very relaxing and I have no problem sleeping on the train. On the train you have more personal space than on t bus or plane.

I prefer to travel by plane, it is easy, and i don't have to wait for long just to reach the destination. But since you have two options here, bus or train, i would prefer train since they have toilet where i can pee. Unlike in bus, you have to wait for a bus stop to rest and to pee. I have this dilemma of holding my pee, i really don't like it and i don't want to have UTI or Urinary tract infection. About bus, well you can sleep on a sleeper class but the problem is you get nausea and dizzy and later vomit. I tried to pee inside a sleeper class, besides nobody can see you inside, they have curtains. All you have to do is have a plastic bag to pee into it , gosh, it was really an experience, what to do, i can't hold it!

I've experienced traveling by plane non stop for 12 to 15 hours when I went to Canada and its so boring coz all I can see are clouds when the plane is already up, and also tiring coz I can't lie down to sleep. I also experienced traveling by bus for 8 to 12 hours in going to province, but there are bus stop were we can take our meals and relax after sitting for long hours, also we can see different view or scenery. Traveling by train is very nice coz there are train stations or stop over; we can see different scenery too and also we can lie down to sleep, so its not so tiring sitting for long hours unlike in the bus or plane. Traveling for long hours and long distance is so tiring especially if you are sitting for long hours, so train is preferable.

Travelling by train is definitely more comfortable especially if it is a long journey. But both train travel and bus travel are an experience in themselves. I have travelled in India mostly by train. But byfar my most memorable journey was a bus ride in rajasthan. The experience of seeing my country up, close and personal.

Well, either mode, it is not all that bad if you can get a seat.

Hello friend. I have traveled by train, bus and plane. Of course, it is the most comfortable to travel by plane for its fast speed. But compared with bus, I prefer to travel by train. If I am lucky enough, I can get a berth ticket and can sleep all the way to my destination, which is so enjoyable. Bus is good for a short journey, not a long one, which is very tiring to me. Take care, friend.
