Title: Transport networks - useful urls/info
Post by: mintae on Jun 10, 06, 09:04 AM
i hate sourcing out for transport information so here's hoping we can collate something useful. maybe just random contribution from everyone first then we can collate it nicely on to a new transport info page on this site. :)


Rail travel- Seat 61 (http://www.seat61.com)
-comprehensive site about rail travel in many countries. :)
info includes rail from sg to thailand.
even how to get to uk from china, etc. (if you've got a month to spare!)
china to hanoi, etc etc.

If U are talking about North America travel, almost all smaller bus companies have been bought over by Greyhound.
Unless U are in big cities with lots of asian, you might be able to find Chinese Coach.

For greyhound, Book early like 7 days ahead the price is always cheaper. like 50% of the price when U buy it over the counter for today travel.
