Traveling around Poland can involve a handful of transportation modes as trains, planes, rental cars and buses embark on daily journeys across the country. One of the most reliable, flexible and frequent ways to get from city to city is with Flixbus, an internet and app-based company that lets travelers book in the moment and take off almost every hour.
Flixbus’ green-and-orange vessels are easy to spot at the bus station where they collect passengers by scanning either printed tickets or QR codes via the mobile app. Passengers with luggage can stow it under the bus in a secure compartment.
Once on the bus, travelers have access to free WiFi which can be a bit spotty, but still offers better connection capabilities than some rural data services. Each seat has an air conditioning vent above the passenger’s head as well as a private reading light and two European charging outlets under each seat.
Tickets for journeys on Flixbus range depending on the hour and day of travel, but some of the lowest prices start at just $1.50. Booking a ticket is as easy as logging on to the app, selecting destination and arrival points and paying securely with a credit card. Travelers also have the option to select their own assigned seats for an additional fee, but once on board it’s first-come, first-serve for those who did not pre-select seats.
ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
Dining is an art, and now that applies to both on the ground and at 35,000 feet thanks to Hainan Airlines’ “Hai Chef” Inflight Artistic Chinese cuisine series, a collaboration with Dong Zhenxiang, a Chinese culinary master also known as Dadong.
Ice hotels are becoming increasingly popular as a unique adventure for dedicated travelers. If you've ever wondered what kind of gusto it takes to join the polar bear club by jumping into frigid waters in your speedo, imagine the thrill of spending the night on a bed of ice inside your own igloo wrapped in warm blankets and furs.
