Q: Which mode of transportation would you choose?


If you had to pick between the four modes of transportation which one would you pick and why? The four are by plane, boat, train or by bus. With all the things to consider including comfort, price, time and safety; what would you rank in order from greatest to the least best mode of transportation to use when traveling in China?

plane, its the fastest,
  I've been on the ocean and the sea was so rough that the ship was cork screwing (going straight bow down and then going right up on its side), train and bus can be rough rides, altho I like the train.

Assuming it is for travel rather than commuting it would be train every day of the week. Safe and either relaxing in a modern high speed train or mixing it with the locals in a hard sleeper train offers an experience and travel all in one. You get a look at the countryside as you pass. To me that is the drawback of air travel. You see nothing of the places in between.

Depending if for business or pleasure. 

My top choices would be train or plane, depends on how in a hurry I am and where I am going.
Why?.  Confort, personal liking of both, safety records.

Next choice will be ship or boat or ferry if available.  I have been a sailor on week ends and vacations, so the sea does not bothers me.

and last,

The BUS.  In China, the only way you will get my butt on one is if there is no other way, including walking there, and you must get me drunk first !.

You're question is too vague to get an answer.   Not too many chances to travel anywhere in China via boat.  Train works great when you go visit your family for New Years.

Me, personally, I'm a cheap bastard and use the bus for most trips.  For business then I go plane and send the bill to my company.

I think the train with the sleeping bed is the best. The bus with the sleeping bed is ok but there is no toilet available you have to wait for the rest stops

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
