Same as you with the same reasons- besides I am very tall 6 ft 3in - so I find bus travel very cramped - in the train you can move around & stretch legs too

I love train rides. There's something nostalgic about boarding a train. Its just fun in my mind. I use to ride the bus a lot when I was younger to travel from city to city, and I have to say there are some interesting characters at some bus stops.

Hi sree, It is depend on the occasion. If I am rushing to reach that destination, then I would prefer bus as it move faster then train. The only thing, it might bit risky since our bus driver here love to imagine that they are formula one driver. That's way our accident rate are among the highest in the world. Bravo.

Hi, sree, I also prefer train to bus, especially for a long trip.One reason is same with yours. I think train in China is more safer than bus. It alwasy runs on its own track. Another reason is I'm easy to get car/bus sick. Especially for a long trip, I'm always suffering so much. In addition, China is a large country, bus is too slow, except I just travel to nearby city.
