Transportation Options To Consider When Travelling

BC Ferry Northern Expedition arrives at Departure Bay by flicker user kams_world

It becomes paramount to decide on the method of transportation prior to taking your vacation.  Some distinct methods of transportation that you should consider are based on several factors which include the distance to be covered, weather conditions, travel costs, and your own personal safety. This is the basis on which your plan is formulated.

If you are travelling by sea you should consider using the ferry because it’s cheaper compared to the other methods. In addition, it is convenient and you are not subjected to extreme checks like in airports, which sometimes compromises your privacy. Another advantage of why you should choose a cheap ferry to travel is that you will be able to observe from a short distance islands and gorgeous scenery.

Travelling using a vehicle is great, especially if the distance to be covered is not so long. The main advantage is that you as a tourist will be able to make stops and observe around the many places of interest.

Travelling by plane is still the most popular way that tourists prefer; it has the advantage of speed and covers relatively long distances. It is comfortable and you arrive at your destination within the fixed schedule with all other factors being equal.  It’s also by far the most expedient form of getting from point A to point B.

An alternative is to arrive somewhere by animal.  I’ve personally been on camel and elephant safaris and I even once rode an ostrich!   Riding an ostrich would not be something I’d recommend to anyone but a nice way to see a remote location by camel safari is certainly something I do highly recommend.

Overall, it’s most important to pick a method of transportation that best suits your individual and specific needs.  Whether it is sea, land, air or animal there are always options gallore to consider on the next journey of your wildest dreams.

A camel trek has to be one of the funkiest forms of travel I’ve experienced. Riding across the That desert in Rajasthan was definitely something to remember. I am still yet to travel by hot air balloon, although it is high on the bucket list.

That’s where I did my camel ride as well! I’m excited about potentially doing it again next year.

That’s right , ferries are much affordable compared to the Airline traveling. Though, ferries take time for long journey, It could be fun if someone is accompanying on deck. Thanks

Most definitely it would be more fun to travel with a friend, family member or significant other.

Sorry man, but I’d recommend riding an ostrich to anyone. As long as I had my camera ready.

Traveling by aircraft is still the most well-known way that visitors prefer; it has the benefits of rate and includes relatively lengthy ranges.
