I think some factor has to be considered in making the choice for a particular travelling means available.
My favourite mean of travelling is by bus.
I think some factor needs to be considered in choosing a means of travelling.
My opinion is that some factor has to put into consideration, this is best justified in scenario of travelling purposes like travelling within a short distance, long distance, travelling within inter-state, travelling across borders, travelling for: holidays, business trip, adventures, international meeting and so on.

I think the best way to travel is by train like voice one. Firstly is one of the oldest ways to travel and carry for long distances a lot of people , like "The transsiberian" on Rusia. Also if you travel by train you'd know different places meanwhile you are travelling, you'd see a lot of beautiful postals like forest or rivers. Definitly when I have opportunity to travel by train I do that and enjoy my trip.

to me , the best way to travel that is air travel because it is very fast and safe , you can also watching the beautiful view through the window like , i will going to fly in the next day and that is first trip of me and i hope that trip will be interesting

Hello i'm a new member

Air Travel.

I think the best ways to travel are the plane, the train and the ship. It depends on the type of travel. Although I am afraid to fly, but the views are amazing. The train and the ship are quite comfortable types of transport. You can also watching beautiful views through the window.

the plane is my best transport to travel , it is faster, safe and comfrtbale but it don't safe if the weather too bad .

I would like to travel by plan some day!I never did yet.however I traveled by car a few times and I enjoyed it very much.

Nice question, For me I think by driving my car because you can go anywhere at any time, you are the captain of the vehicle, and another thing that you have your privacy you can do whatever you want hearing music, calling your friend, changing your plan like stopped at petrol stations to take a rest.

I like any modern transport for travelling. It depends which of them I use. If I decide to relax I don't choose fast transport. Really I enjoy landscapes, watching animals, picking berries. It takes a lot of time.
