To reach my destination, I usually have to use the airplane.
When I'm there, my favorite way of travelling around (if possible) is taking a rental car. I'm not bound to any schedule or route, I can simply go where I want when I want.
Of cause that's not feasible at every destination, but that's what I'd prefer.
All my posts and recommendations just represent my personal opinion and experience.

There is something about the train that I just love! But for North America it is the car. Love our road trips.

Definitely train - I get to meet the locals :D and it's also the only form of transport on which I don't get sick. :mrgreen:

On foot! Or kayak, bicycle, SUP, or anything else human powered. Get some exercise, feel like you've accomplished something, and see the world slowly, that's my kind of trip.

yep on foot for me too! I love to hike. Then after that the train - the long slow cross continent type that you can spend several days on and several hours at each stop - I love to travel this way!
(and like Desiree I dont get motion sickness on it either!

I like to get trains and buses but my favourite way to get around is on a motorbike. Essential in Asia for weaving in and out of the traffic and opens up so many opportunities to go up tiny roads and to less traveled paths. It may not be considered the safest mode of transport (although I always wear a properly accredited helmet) and isn't one for the fainthearted or inexperienced but it has served me well so far and taken me on some amazing adventures.

I am a huge fan of the train as well, not only at the destination, but also as a method to get to my desintation. So far I have managed to do London to Casablanca by mostly by train, and also Paris to Rome, its far nicer to see a bit of the countryside than just wait at an airport for what can seem hours! Its a bit unfortunate that flying is often quicker and cheaper almost everywhere now and I'd take the train a lot more often if I could.

But when I'm at my destination I try to use local public transport whenever its safe to do so, but my all time favourite has to be the mini bus Taxi's in South Africa. They're totally nuts, and a huge part of the culture and again, not for the faint hearted!
