Product description

Mark Smith is the Man in Seat Sixty-One. Although this might make him sound like a fictional spy, he is in fact the man behind the massively popular seat61.com website, which offers invaluable advice on worldwide train travel. Following on from the success of "The Man in Seat 61", which took travellers around Europe by train, this book covers international train travel around Africa, Asia, the Americas and Australasia. Focusing on affordable international travel by scheduled trains, not just deluxe tourist services, this book is packed with insider knowledge and top tips on the best routes and cheapest fares; travelling with children and changing trains; timetables and maps; essential items to travel with; and, everything in between. More and more people are choosing to avoid air travel and seek alternatives, and this is the only book they need for environmentally friendly journeys around the world.
