Hi, my name is Ngoc Mai, i have been listening to ur podcast from the season 1 to season 4. i love the way you are all making the podcast, i hope u will keep making it. anyway, in Vietnam, there are many ways to transport, such as bus, motorbikes, bikes,... i think that the most popular one is motorbike. But sometimes the foreign people are scared of it because it's too dangerous and too fast. we also travel by bus too, and the tickets are very cheap. But whati really like it the bicycle, it helps you to exercise and save the enviroment

Hi everyone, my name is Seng.
I live in Bangkok, Thailand. I sometime use public transportation including bus, skytrain, and MRT.
I prefer skytrain than the rest because it is not affected by traffic congestion (I can control my time) and so convenient to get my workplace.

In the capital of Iran, Tehran city, because of trafic congestion and increasing of gasolin in the last years, the main part of population move toward using public transpoertion particularly metro and BRT. But in the other cities like Yazd city, people uses car mainly.

The second thing that I would like to speak about it is that historical cities of Iran was very copact and walk-oriented.
Peoply mainly did not need any vehicle for daily commute.

Here in my country the more famous is the Bus! But I prefer more to go walking where I go.

I live in Moscow. I usually get to work on the metro. It is my favourite mean of transport, because firstly, it is convenient, secondly, you can get to the other part of the city very fast. The Moscow metro is the most beautiful metro in the world.
Best wishes,
Klimova Tatiana
