Train from Narita Airport to Harajuku Station

 

There are a few options to go from Narita airport to Harajuku.¬†According to Rome2rio, these are the options and corresponding prices: Train (Keisei Railways) – 2600 yen, Limousine Bus – 3270 yen, Trian via Tokyo – 1520 yen, Bus Peace Transport Service – 1320 yen, Taxi 28000-34000 yen, and Driving at 1400 yen. We opted to take the N’EX (Narita Express) Tokyo Direct Train at 1500 yen. I think they were having a promotion at that time. It normally costs 3,190 yen. The current promotion is at 4,000 yen for round trip tickets which is not bad. We took the train from Narita airport to Harajuku station.

Transportation from Airport to Prague City Center

Transportation from Airport to Prague City Center

 

I took the early morning flight to Prague. Their airport is nice and pretty straight forward. As soon as I exited, I looked for an ATM machine since I couldn’t see any money exchange places that were open.

The Oyster Card

The oyster card is a very convenient transport card where you can access buses, trams and trains. It’s a lot similar to the Octopus card of Hong Kong. You have to deposit 5 pounds to get a card and you can put money on it at convenient stores or at kiosks in the train stations. You don’t have to keep buying tickets so it’ll save you time and money. The fare is a bit cheaper than regular tickets.

How to go from Madrid Airport to the city

How to go from Madrid Airport to the city

How to go from Madrid Airport to the city? It’s relatively easy and there are a few ways. You can go by taxi, by car or by bus. After you go out from picking up your luggage on the luggage carousel, when you turn left you will find a Tourist Information Office. They speak several languages including English and French. Maps are available. I immediately asked how to get to our hotel or as close as possible. I was also given a map and directions.

Kyoto Bus Pass

Getting a Kyoto City Bus One-Day Pass is probably one of the best budget travel advise I could give you. It only costs 500 yen or roughly around 200 pesos. A one way fare on the bus is 220 yen and on the subway, the fare starts at 220 yen. You can get the full value of the bus pass on 3 or more rides. Most of the tourist sites in Kyoto are more accessible by bus than the subway.

How to Cross the border from Siem Reap to Thailand

How to Cross the border from Siem Reap to Thailand

 

To cross the border from Siem Reap to Thailand, we had to go through the Poipet border. There are buses available for a cheaper price but I didn’t want to wait for it to be full or for other people. So, we decided on a Taxi service to cross the border. I asked our hostel at Tanei Guesthouse about a taxi. They offered me a price of $30 from Siem Reap to the Poipet border for 5 people. They said it’s usually only $25 but since there are more people in our group, they charged $5 more which wasn’t so bad. Last time, we had to pay $45. We left at around 7am and it was a 2 to 3 hour ride to the border.

Trasnportation in Hong Kong

 

Hong Kong probably has one of the most efficient public transportation systems in the world. I mean they have to because there are tons of people to move. It’s very tourist friendly as well. You don’t have to speak the language in order to navigate it.
