  • BTS Skytrain

    Bangkok Transportation

    For most people this is the main city transport system, and it links most of the popular tourist destinations. The Skytrain runs high above the streets, and you must climb several floors to reach the track - if you are lucky there might be a escalator, but don't count on it. The ticket system is confusing, and requires that you only use 5 and 10...

    Singapore Transportation

    Singapore's metro system is made up mostly of underground trains, light rail and a lot of buses to cover the areas in between. It's clean, efficient and reasonably priced. With the hot, humid, rainy weather in the city, it really makes sense to get yourself a EZ-Link stored value card if you stay more than a couple of days. This card costs money,...

    Kuala Lumpur Transportation

    MY Rapid is a company that run the main public transportation system in KL. They provide Putra (Kelana Jaya Line) and Star (Ampang Line) LRT, Monorail, and RapidKL buses. How good are they?

    I exited the international arrival hall and headed left. I saw a few taxis but chose a dark green Mai Linh taxi to District 1.

    Goa Transportation

    You'll see everyone whiz past on two-wheelers or scooters. Rent one for a week/duration of your stay but make sure to be safe, ride two to a scooter, and watch out for crazy driving! You'll need to watch the fuel tank and fill up before you return, so make note of the closest gas station since in most areas they are few and far between.
