Which transportation option you choose will depend on your budget and your preferences. If you are on a tight budget, then bus is the best option. If you are looking for a more comfortable journey, then train or taxi is the best option.

There are a number of train classes available, ranging from third class (which is the most affordable but also the least comfortable) to first class (which is the most expensive but also the most comfortable).
