"i ckd flts they r exp"

Can you translate this part into English, please? Many of us here are already making an effort, as English is not our first language.... to add an extra effort deciphering if you're speaking sms text or klingon....

At least the second part of your question is intelligible... "do u think train is faster and cheaper?"

AVE train is faster (and most comfortable), but rarely cheaper. However, you can get 60% discounts booking in advance at

Budget flights and buses are usually cheaper than train.

The bus will be the cheapest option, and I have to say probably the most scenic.

If you're in more of a hurry then I was delighted to find last year that the fast trains in Spain are an amazing improvemnet on my memories of the local train services. The punctuality guarantee for the fast trains would shame train services in the UK.

taurean_traveller: I believe you earned the star ;-)

Then, the OP did not search for the right flights, as Vueling (and sometimes others as Air Europa, Spanair) usually have very cheap deals, about 40€. Trains cost more, even discounted.

Kakapo: you're right the bus is the cheapest (about 30€), but, believe me, is NOT scenic. It's an awfully long and boring trip along a highway, without any remarkable views. I did it to many times before I was old and wise enough to be happy to pay a bit more for the quickness of a flight... but nowadays I rarely consider other option for this trip than the AVE train (that, by the way, its quite scenic in parts)

Thanks everybody for ur help!! I will definitely ck out those airlines Belsaita. Also Taureen you definitely got a star!!!

@ nuzahmed: check to compare fares and schedules for various airlines. Then book one directly through the airline's website. As already suggested above, Vueling is one good budget airlines. Before, booking a flight do come back to forums for the second opinion...

Travel Tips for Barcelona

Architecture's major construction site

by Furousha

Any trip to Barcelona wouldn't be complete without a visit to this architectural gem by Antoni Gaudi. You can enter the church, though the lines are long, and closely experience the wonderful details of the interior. Don't leave without taking a walk around the church to examine the nativity facade with its peculiar Christmas tree adorned with peace doves.

The best way to travel to the cathedral is by L1 metro line to the stop "Sagrada Familia". Upon exiting the metro stop you will have the impressing church above you which creates a wow-feeling.

Hanging out at Port Vell

by surferob

I guess you're supposed to pronounce it "Port Vey", with a bit of a "yuh" sound at the end of Vell. Whatever, it's a relaxing and yet lively part of Barcelona. Nice thing is you can walk out on the docks on either end, past all the sailboats and slips and wend your way across to the other side where you come out on dry land again. There are a few restaurants, shops and even an IMAX theater out in the bay itself.

One more neat thing: when enough sailboats queue up wanting to leave the port, a security guard blows a whistle, bringing the flow of pedestrian traffic to a halt. He then signals the 'gatekeeper', who opens the footbridge with a swivelling motion, and out come the waiting boats, often with the passengers waiving to everyone.


by eden_teuling

Although you must always be careful, pickpockets are everywhere, take your time walking the city, new and old parts and use your eyes to discover special façades, like this one e.g. and believe me....there is so much to see for the good observer..


This is the entrance in Modernistic style in the street of LA PETXINA of a antique manufactury of pastas, which has been changed into a fine bakery now.......and believe me, it was fine.

With Easter upon us, I bought here a few superb cakes and pastries to enjoy while resting in our hotel room...
It tasted heavenly.......

But again: there are more of such wonderful special thing for one who wants to see them and who uses his/her eyes....

I know: there is sooooo much to see.....

The Estadi Olimpic was inaugurated in 1929. Today it can contains 50000 spectators. The "old" part of the Stadium was totally rebuilt for the Olympic Games in 1992.
The façade still remembers the origin of the arena. In the back of the Stadium there is the "Galeria Olimpica", that narrates with videos, posters and images the history of the Olympic Games of 1992.


by Hosell

Another nice place to go specially if you are travelling with children,is the largest of Theme Parks in Spain,PORT AVENTURA, it has five areas or worlds,and I am sure that you'll have lots of fun there.Is located about 95 km south of Barcelona in Salou,province of Tarragona.Is very easy to go by train,bus or car (1 hour).
