Yes, I like traveling by train. I like traveling to the country sides by train but it was very rare to travel by it. The problem I had was motion sickness, therefore I couldn't feel the natures very well.

I used to commute by train. It was really convenient because it only takes me 5 minutes to the train station from my house. However, it is very difficult to book train tickets recently, and there is always full of people on the train. Sometimes there is no room for me to sit, so I have to stand for 1 hour at least to get to my destination.
