HOW TO TRAVEL THE WORLD BY TRAIN
Trains are one of my favorite transportation options. When my wife and I were in Bangkok back in 2012, we took an overnight sleeper train to Chiang Mai and managed to have a great sleep, waking up rested in a new city the next day. It was far better than taking a bus. Trains provide a smooth (usually) and slightly romantic experience through scenery you may never see otherwise. Trains are also usually more comfortable than buses and if you can get a bed, you’ll save money on accommodation as well. Here are some websites to get you started.
