Prompt #4: What is your favorite method of overland travel and why?
I didn’t mind bus travelling a lot but after being violently car sick in Peru, I’ve decided that my favorite overland travel is by train.
With train travel you get to:
- skip traffic jam
- go at a slow pace with not as much sudden turns (so you won’t get motion sickness)
- see cute babies
- have more leg room than a plane or bus
- eat train bentou (Japan and Taiwan have these)
- sleep on beds (To be fair, China has long distance buses with beds too. I slept in a bunk next to the toilet before.)
It’s unfortunate that KTM (Malayan Railway Limited) has removed their private 2-bed bunk on their overnight train. I really wanted to try one.
