Krabi offers a paradise for adventure lovers

Krabi hotels offer a fascinating stay with traditional hospitality and fabulous cuisine that visitors will enjoy. Krabi is located on the southern coast of Thailand, a beautiful jewel nestled in the warm waters of the Andaman Sea. It is reputed to have some of the most pristine and beautiful beaches in the world. It has a typical tropical climate and a hot monsoon season. Most people choose to visit Krabi and its sun-kissed beaches during the dry season, between November and April, when it is hot and dry.

Krabi has made a name for itself in the world of water sports. It has some spectacular dive sites and rich marine life for divers to enjoy. The seabed around Krabi has caves and caverns covered in brightly colored anemones and it is often possible to see a leopard shark or barracuda. Ao Nang beach is one of the most popular places to start diving. The seven islands around Ao Nang have diverse marine life and dive sites for people of all skill levels. Koh Yawasam, with its shallow waters and easy access to deeper water, makes it an ideal location for diving tutorials. It is possible to get your Padi certification in Krabi. Koh Yawabon, on the other hand, is restricted to very experienced divers only due to the strong currents and large dead zone.

Enjoy Sun, Sea, Sand and Sensations

Due to its spectacular natural beauty, large areas of Krabi have been declared marine sanctuaries or parks. Nature lovers are drawn to Krabi to trek through the dense jungles and explore the wide variety of fauna and flora here. The experience is enhanced when one can stumble upon glistening rock pools, gushing hot springs, and verdant mountainside interspersed with silvery strands of distant waterfalls. The natural lagoons attract attention with the crystalline and brilliant tones of the water. The Emerald pool is one of the most famous and is known for its beauty. The authorities of some natural parks have maps with marked nature trails so that visitors can walk safely through the jungle while visiting all the landmarks in the area. Many of the hot springs are said to have therapeutic value. Regardless of the truth of this claim, hot springs can still be enjoyed as a relaxing and calming experience.

Krabi is also becoming increasingly popular with adventure sports enthusiasts such as rock climbers. The massive limestone cliffs, caves, and immense rock formations make it an ideal target for climbers. Many courses are offered on the easier cliffs. The cliffs around Railay Beach are particularly popular with the climbing fraternity. Guided climbs are easy to find and there are over 600 mapped climbing routes. Whether you stay in a Krabi hotel on the mainland or choose to make an island your base, there are plenty of reasonable food options around Ao Nang and Krabi Town and you’ll never run out of things to do and places to see with an abundance of delicious food everywhere.

Krabi guides travelers to havens of tranquility

Canceled trip: can travel insurance help?

Imagine flying to South Korea to finally see a K-pop girl group for the first time, in person. The concert ticket has been purchased and you are ready to catch the fever and enjoy this unique and exquisite musical experience. Unfortunately, upon arriving in Seoul, he was informed that for some reason the concert will not take place.

What if you attend a Digital Startup Conference in Berlin, but before boarding the plane, you were informed that, for a number of reasons, the organizers couldn’t settle in and it can’t take place?

In cases of event cancellation, travel insurance can definitely help as it offers coverage for canceled events.

For a claim to be valid, the following conditions must be met:

  • The cancellation of the event must be outside the control of the insured.

  • The event cannot take place before your flight back to your country of origin.

  • The organizer must provide written confirmation that the event has been cancelled.

There are two (2) circumstances that may occur when making use of this insurance coverage. These are:

  1. The event was canceled before departure: If you have been informed before traveling to the venue, the maximum sum insured per person will be £400 for unused event tickets and specific limits as indicated in the insurance policy that covers unused travel arrangements, such as flights, accommodations, and excursions, as well as other additional travel expenses associated with the trip.

  2. The event was canceled after arrival in the destination country/city – In this case, up to 50% of the travel expenses and seven (7) days of accommodation will be covered by the insurance policy.

Since this is additional coverage, check to see if your standard or comprehensive policy has this feature. If not, you can always contact your insurer to include this feature.

It should be noted that your claim cannot be considered if the event is rescheduled before your flight home. Likewise, the insurance must only indemnify those that are not reimbursed by the organizers. The claim also does not include food and beverage costs, as these are regular, recurring, everyday expenses.

Experiencing the cancellation of an event, especially one in which you have invested financially and emotionally (significantly) in it, can be heartbreaking. This is why it is worth making sure that we can recover our advance payments when this cancellation occurs and one can do this by purchasing the appropriate travel insurance policy with event cancellation cover.

How to do Rome in 48 hours

You just arrived in Rome with a couple of days to kill. How is it possible to see everything there is to see in such a short time? This is the guide to get the most out of Rome in the shortest amount of time.


Hopefully check-in at the hotel has been pretty smooth, so now it’s time to venture out in search of a good meal. A meal in Trastevere’s old part of town has several benefits. Firstly, there are a multitude of pizzerias and open-air tourist-type restaurants to choose from, and secondly, they are within walking distance of several major landmarks, including the well-preserved Pantheon.

Rome is as attractive at night as it is during the day, in the heat of the Roman summer, night walks can save a few hours of excessive sweating during the day. Any one of the little alleys between the Pantheon and the Spanish Steps is perfectly situated to allow a generous meal of pasta and a good carafe of wine to slip by quite easily.


Head to the Spanish steps to sit and hang out with the locals, while the view from the top of the steps in front of the Trinita dei Monti church offers a great view of the city. Take a walk by the Trevi Fountain and buy a dessert in the form of ice cream and try your luck with the change. Throw a coin over your shoulder to go back, two coins to go back and be kissed or three coins to go back and get married.


Continue walking through the streets until you reach Piazza Venezia, named for the Palace that overlooks the square that resembles the Doge’s Palace in Venice. The second floor balcony may sound familiar, it was the podium from which the dictator ‘il duce’ Mussolini delivered his fascist speeches. The other landmark that dominates the square is the unmistakable monument to Vittorio Emanuele II.

This has earned several nicknames over the years, including the wedding cake and the typewriter. The tomb of the Unknown Soldier lies here under armed guard along with the eternal flame. If the monument is open, there is a fantastic view over the rooftops of Rome, a glimpse of the Roman Forum and the Colosseum behind it. It is closed at dusk, but many of the ruins are illuminated at night.


If the night air has revived you, there is the option of checking out the local nightlife, as there are many bars and clubs open in the central area of ​​the city. There are also some in other squares like Piazza Navona and Campo dei Fiori that stay open until early morning. Otherwise, head back to the hotel to get ready for tomorrow.


It’s worth starting early, especially in the summer to avoid the crowds and temperatures, but luckily the city isn’t too spread out to get from place to place. The metro system is basic to say the least, there are only two metro lines that run through the city and the buses are clearly marked with destinations. Termini is the central bus and metro terminal. Tickets must be purchased before boarding and validated at the yellow machines, starting at EUR1 for one journey.

No visit to Rome is complete without a trip to the Vatican. San Pietro is on the western side of the Tiber River with the dome of San Pietro visible from most of the city. The halls of the Vatican museum are open from 8:45 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., with last admission just before 3:30 p.m., during the busy summer months. It is open until 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays and low season, while it is closed on Sundays and religious celebrations. You need plenty of time to walk through the 7 km of museum rooms to the Sistine Chapel, where you can admire the details and marvel at Michelangelo’s creation on the ceiling. It pays to have some kind of description of the frescoes on hand to explain what you are seeing. The Pope gives his public address on Wednesday mornings at 11am.


If you’re still hungry for more, there’s the basilica’s vast interior, the crypt below, and the view from the dome above onto the square. Now is probably a good time to find something for lunch before visiting the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. Take plenty of water with you in the summer months, as sneaky vendors will sell small bottles for exorbitant prices. Along with lunch it also gets you out of the hottest part of the day.


Entrance tickets to the Colosseum can be bought at the gate, but if the line is too long, you can go to the ticket window at the base of the Palatine Hill and buy them there. The line here is usually much shorter as not many tourists walk up the hill. The remains of the Emperor’s palace are located at the top overlooking the forum and, quite strategically, in the Temple of the Vestal Virgins. This hill is also said to be where Romulus founded Rome.

Next to the Colosseum is the Arch of Constantine, which was an exercise in recycling ancient monuments by Emperor Constantine to reward himself for beating Maxentius. The Colosseum has been damaged over the last 1,800 years by earthquakes, invaders and marble traders, but recent restoration projects have seen parts restored to give a good idea of ​​its original state.

4:00 p.m.

The Via Sacre leads from the Colosseum to the Roman Forum, the center of the ancient Roman commercial world. Ruins include the original forum, Julius Caesar’s funeral pyre, his Senate building, the Temple of the Vestal Virgins, and the Arch of Septimus Severus. The forum was buried over several hundred years of flooding, each layer has been stripped away to reveal another Roman era, and in some cases two eras have merged, as in the case of the Temple of Antoninus and Faustina. The door in the middle of the exposed wall shows where the ground level was during the 8th century, when the 2nd century temple was converted to a church.

There are many tour guides available such as history students and licensed guides who offer their services with tours of the forum and colosseum. The stories they tell really help bring the ruins to life. Across the street is the Trajan’s Forum with the very conspicuous Trajan’s Column. This marks the border of ancient Rome and the continuation of the modern city. Unfortunately, most of ancient Rome lies below the Via dei Fiori Imperiali, the road built by Mussolini to parade his troops before going into battle.

five pm

The rest of the day can be spent enjoying people-watching in any of the cafes in Piazza Navona and admiring Bernini’s sculpted Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi, or relaxing in the shade in the park of the 17th-century Villa Borghese. Then go back to those clubs you missed last night.


This really depends on when you decide to leave. An early evening departure can allow you to enjoy one of three options, as long as you start early. The Baths of Caracalla is a 10-hectare space that once housed 1,600 people to take advantage of the bath, the shops, the libraries, the gardens and the public entertainment. These open at 9am and close 1 hour before sunset and on Mondays at 2pm. You would need around 3-4 hours including travel time to see them.

The other option is to visit one of the vast catacombs that are buried under the city. These are miles and miles of tunnels, burial vaults and churches excavated by early Christians to escape persecution by the Romans. The vault burials are countless meters high and the tunnels descend at various levels. The resulting rabbit hole requires a guide to get you from one side to the other safely. You can choose between those of Via Appia Antica, which are the largest, or the Catacombs of San Callisto which are next to the Catacombs of San Sebastiano. They open at 8:30 a.m. and close at noon, reopening in the afternoon from 2:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Again, you would need 3-4 hours to get into a site.


The third and last option is to leave everything tourist aside and enjoy authentic gastronomic experiences. The food markets north of the Vatican are located just off Viale dele Millizie and those in Piazza Vittorio Emanuele near Termini offer a selection of fresh, locally produced produce.

There you have it, all the main attractions of Rome can be achieved in just 2 days. The choice now is, do I really want to leave yet?

Sunshine Sarasota – Travel Experiences

From its small-town charm to its amazing beaches, Sarasota is one of those cities you can’t help but get involved with. Whether you come here for relaxation or adventure, Sarasota has something for everyone.

If you love white sand beaches and beautiful blue waters, chances are your travels will eventually take you to Siesta Key right here in Sarasota, Florida. If that’s where you’re headed right now, then this little guide is for you. Being a local I decided to create a weekend vacation and make a must do list for you!

Once you arrive in this sunny city, I recommend that you get a car. Sarasota may have small-town charm, but getting around can be a bit of a hassle. With a car, you can freely explore on your own time and won’t rack up a hefty Uber bill.


Being a popular getaway spot, Sarasota is full of beautiful hotels and resorts. Art Ovation Hotel is the perfect hidden gem. Located in the heart of downtown Sarasota, this hotel puts you right in the center of all the shopping and dining. It also has a beautiful rooftop pool and bar where you can spend your days lounging with the perfect view of Sarasota.

funny sun

Visiting Siesta Key Beach is a must. Whether you’ve heard about it on MTV’s Siesta Key or know it’s been rated the #1 beach in the US numerous times, Siesta Key Beach certainly appeals to everyone. Spend a day at the beach and then hop on a free beach walk to head to The Siesta Key Village for a bite to eat.

Although Sarasota is best known for Siesta Beach, sometimes we want to escape the crowds. Turtle Beach, at the southern end of Siesta key, is the perfect place to relax and watch the sun go down.

Being right on the ocean, water sports are very popular in Sarasota. Paddle surfing, canoeing and kayaking are some of the activities that visitors can enjoy. IKakak is a SUP and kayak rental company that will provide you with the equipment you need and take you on a journey through the famous mangrove tunnels.

An unforgettable experience is the view of Sarasota from above. Release your inner adventurer and let Heli Aviation show you these beautiful beaches from a new point of view.

Sarasota Flavors and Nightlife

Head to Buttermilk for breakfast. Try the handmade breakfast sandwiches with cookies, they are to die for. But get there early, they’re gone and once they’re gone, they’re gone!

Green Zebra on St. Armand’s Circle is one of the best places for a quick and refreshing snack. Little tip, get a Brazilian bowl and ask for a dollop of peanut butter!

A great place to grab a bowl of Acai is Clean Juice. Added bonus, all snacks are made from USDA organic ingredients. Get the Nutty bowl, you won’t regret it!

If you’re looking to get your day off to a flying start with a clean meal, I recommend heading to downtown Lille. This mainly vegan restaurant cooks with locally sourced ingredients and the results are amazing!

Boca is another farm-to-table restaurant in downtown Sarasota. They source all of their food from different local farms and even grow their produce inside the restaurant. Enjoy your meal with the basil plant growing next to you. I definitely recommend trying their nightly special, staff food!

Enjoy an Aperol Spritz and amazing wood-fired pizza at Napule, which has a big screen showing old Italian black-and-white movies.

For happy hour, grab a signature martini at Mattison’s City Grille downtown. Or go to the Shore in St Armand’s Circle and get the PC Shrubbery cocktail. Another great place for happy hour, or social hour as they call it, is Social Eatery and Bar.

Beer lovers should stop by the Calusa Brewery and grab a beer. They will serve all their specialties for you to taste. Also, they have different food trucks that come every day to give you a quick bite.

For cocktails, visit Pangea Alchemy Lab. If you’re looking for something truly unique, this speakeasy will be your place. They make some crazy fun drinks and the whole place has a really nice atmosphere.

Yacht charter in Italy: enjoy a world-famous lifestyle on your charter boat

The beauty of Italy is legendary and one city is more attractive than the other. The country has an immensely rich culture and history, magnificent cuisine, and the famous lifestyle and elegance. For guests chartering yachts, it offers vast and varied yachting grounds, as well as pretty harbors. This, combined with all the stunning views, stunning nature, and Italian “dolce vita”, makes for the perfect sailing vacation.

Why is yacht charter in Italy so popular?

Italy and its islands in the Tyrrhenian Sea are located right in the center of the Mediterranean. Renting a yacht in Italy is a great opportunity to explore the incredible Italian culture and the multitude of beautiful towns. With 51, there are more UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Italy than in any other country in the world. And on top of that, you can enjoy fantastic food and great shopping.

The coastline, especially the Italian Riviera in the west, offers many beaches and bays perfectly suitable for anchoring. The islands of Italy lie mainly off the west coast of the mainland and all have their own individual character. A favorable climate and the almost absence of tides favor good navigation conditions and there are many interesting possibilities for different navigation itineraries. Italy has a long tradition in shipbuilding and navigation, so boaters benefit from a high frequency of ports. The infrastructure in the charter regions to the north and south to Rome is very good.

The main airports are Venice, Genoa, Pisa, Rome, Naples, Olbia, Alghero, Cagliari, Reggio Calabria, Palermo, Trapani and Catania.

Here is some general information about yacht charter in Italy:

Location: Central Mediterranean Sea

Total length of the coast: 7,600 km

Capital of Rome

Main bases for charter flights: Genoa, La Spezia, Piombino, Follonica, Castiglione della Pescaia, Salerno, Sorrento, Tropea, Reggio Calabria. Sardinia: Cagliari, Carloforte, Olbia, Alghero. Sicily: Trapani, Palermo, Portorosa.

Population: approx. 60,675,000

Climate: Temperate, Mediterranean

Country code: +39

Charter season: May to October

What are the best charter areas in Italy?

The main charter regions for sailing in Italy are concentrated on the west coast of the continent, that is, Liguria, Tuscany, Elba, Bay of Naples, Capri, Sardinia and Sicily. The Adriatic coast on the east side is not that attractive for sailing. Possible rental bases are Polignano a Mare, near Bari, the area around the Gargano National Park and the Venetian Lagoon, where you can sail directly past the world-famous Old Town and its impressive buildings.

In the capital of Liguria, Genoa, there is the Porto Antico which contains the largest aquarium in Europe and many other places of interest. From there it is only a short walk to the old town. After approximately 14 nautical miles, you will arrive at the impressive port city of Portofino in its sheltered bay. From here it is approximately 30 nautical miles to La Spezia and on the way you will pass through one of the most picturesque tourist destinations in Italy, a group of five picturesque and colorful seaside towns located in a national park called Cinque Terre. La Spezia is part of the national park and is the second largest city in Liguria. It is conveniently located on a deep gulf surrounded by high hills.

A little further south is the Tuscan archipelago containing the islands of Gorgona, Capraia, Pianosa, Montechristo, Giglio, Gianutri and the largest and most well-known: Elba. There are very good charter bases on the Tuscan mainland to go exploring these islands, or maybe even Corsica. They are Viareggio, Piombino, Follonica and Castiglione della Pescaia / Punta Ala. In Elba, the main town and port is Portoferraio, on the north coast, which is well worth a visit. The island also offers beautiful large bays and great anchorages. At the southern tip of Tuscany is Puerto San Stefano, a seaside town on a peninsula with a yacht harbor and massive fortress.

Sardinia offers a great mix of exclusive sailing spots and ports like the Costa Smeralda and Porto Cervo, as well as pristine sailing territories like the famous Maddalena archipelago. There are very good ports like Cagliari, Cannigione, La Maddalena, Olbia, Palau and Portisco. Savor the impressive and varied landscape, such as the pink beach of Spiaggia Rosa and the Gulf of Cannigione, which looks like a fjord.

The Bay of Naples and its islands, the Amalfi Coast and the Pontine Islands archipelago offer other brilliant options for yacht charter itineraries. The Amalfi Coast is situated between the charter bases of Sorrento and Salerno. It is a 50km stretch of coastline with very picturesque villages perched on steep rocky cliffs. The cities of Amalfi and Positano are just two examples.

From the mainland you can head to the islands in the Gulf of Naples. The exclusive Capri is the place where the international jet set meets. The main town and port with its high-end boutiques and world-class restaurants are on the north side. However, it is very crowded and expensive. You will find a good anchorage on the south side at Marina Piccola. There are no sandy beaches in Capri, its coastline is quite steep and picturesque. The water is deep, so there are not too many safe anchorages.

Then there is the picturesque and colorful Procida with many beautiful bays and beaches and the nature reserve of the island of Vivara, which is linked to Procida via a bridge.

You can sail to the popular and busy Ischia, which is the largest island in the Gulf of Naples. It is an extinct volcano with a rich landscape, hot thermal springs, large bays and secluded beaches. The three main ports are the port of Ischia, Casamicciola and Forio. The south of the island is greener and wilder with a beautiful coastline and the north is more populated.

Finally head to the Pontine Islands. From Ischia to Santo Stefano, uninhabited and untouched, there are about 22 nautical miles. There it is only allowed to anchor in the North of the island. Visit neighboring island Ventotene and then cross the next 22 nautical miles to the northwestern Pontine Islands, Gavi, Palmarola, Zannone and charming Ponza with its many caves and grottoes. There you will find very well protected anchorages and an interesting rugged coastline.

Very popular for yacht charter holidays is Sicily, of course. Choose from major charter bases like Marsala or Portorosa in the north, from where you can also explore the Aeolian Islands of Lipari, Stromboli, Vulcano, Alicudi, Filicudi, Panarea and Salina. Other possible ports to rent a bareboat yacht in Italy are Messina, Taormina, Catania and Syracuse on the east coast. Reggio Calabria on the mainland is also a very good starting point for renting a sailboat in Sicily.

What weather systems are important for bareboat chartering in Italy?

In Italian waters there are no significant tides. The prevailing winds in summer are from the northwest. The afternoon sea breeze is generally tempering the heat. Long, dry, hot summers create the perfect weather for sailing.

A brief summary of sailing time in Italy with the example of Naples:

Months with the highest average temperature: July/August, 25°

Months with the lowest average temperature: January/February, 9°

Prevailing wind speeds: 3 – 5 Bft.

Month with highest average rainfall: November, 140 mm

Months with the lowest average rainfall: June/July/August, 30 mm each

Months with the highest average sunshine: July/August, 10 hours per day

Month with the lowest average sunshine: December, 3 hours per day

Months with the highest average sea temperature: July/August, 26°

Months with the lowest average sea temperature: February/March, 14°

How much does it cost to rent a yacht in Italy and what types of rentals are there?

The average price of renting a yacht in Italy is around €3,100 per week but you could rent a 10m sailboat, for example, from around €1,600. The price depends on the size, model and equipment of the rental boat. In Italy it is quite common to rent a RIB (rigid inflatable boat) for an excursion on the water. For a weekly or longer sailing vacation, you can choose to rent a bareboat or skippered boat and choose between renting a sailing or motor boat, respectively, renting a catamaran. Then there is luxury yacht charter, usually with a full crew catering to your individual needs. Flotilla vacations are a popular way to cruise Italian waters. And a day charter can be a way to test if you enjoy life on board.

What other highlights are there in Italy besides sailboat rentals?

Be sure to visit Rome and its incredible ancient sites such as the Forum, the Colosseum and the Pantheon. Other incredibly impressive tourist destinations in the Eternal City are the Vatican and Saint Peter’s Church. Take a seat on the Spanish Steps, admire the Trevi Fountain and soak up the hustle and bustle of the beautiful Piazza Navona and the pedestrian zone with its endless shops, boutiques, cafes and restaurants. This city offers so much that you will simply have to return again and again.

Tuscany is the perfect place for sightseeing. Florence is second to none in the world when it comes to Renaissance art and architecture. There is the statue of David, the great Uffizi museum, the Ponte Vecchio, the Duomo and much, much more. Pisa and the leaning tower are another fantastic attraction. Equally beautiful and worth visiting are Siena, San Gimignano and Lucca.

If you have a day before or after your sailboat rental, head a bit further inland to Bologna with its beautiful old town that is nice to look at from the top of the church tower. It has the oldest academic institution in the world, dating back to 1088 AD

Explore Cinque Terre, five stunning villages perched on the steep hills by the sea surrounded by wonderful nature. Manarola, for example, is a very pretty and colorful town.

Between charters, check out Pompeii, near Naples. It was destroyed by Vesuvius in 79 AD and now constitutes a “city frozen in time”.

Visit the city of Amalfi and its cathedral, old shipyards and paper mill, among others.

Drop anchor in Capri and visit the Blue Grotto – the large cave is filled with spectacular blue light from below.

Climb up to Castello d`Ischia, an Aragonese castle built in 1438 and originally dating from 475 BC.

As you cruise the charter yacht through the Aeolian Islands or eastern Sicily, admire the active volcanoes of Stromboli and Mount Etna.

Finally, take a break from sailing to enjoy the stunning scenery in one of Sardinia’s natural parks, such as the Parco Nazionale del Golfo di Orosei e del Gennargentu.

University of Montana, Missoula – Five Tips for Traveling to Missoula by Amtrak Train and Bus

Missoula, Montana is the second largest city in the state and one of the most picturesque metropolitan areas in the country. The University of Montana provides an academic and cultural anchor to this western Montana city. Unfortunately, Missoula lost its Amtrak service in 1979 and the only low-fare airline to the city flies directly to the Southwest.

For UM students and other residents of the Missoula area, using a combination of Amtrak and buses is the cheapest way to travel to other parts of the country. Here are five tips/tips for effectively traveling to/from Missoula by land:

One: If you’re heading west to Missoula, ignore Amtrak’s recommendation to connect with the train at Whitefish. On the Amtrak schedule for the Empire Builder running between Chicago and Seattle/Portland, there is an indication that connecting service is available between Whitefish, MT and Missoula. Rimrock Stages, part of the Trailways system, provides the service. Unfortunately, Rimrock’s schedule does not work well with Amtrak’s westbound schedule.

The only bus from Whitefish leaves at 11:35 am and arrives in Missoula approximately 3 ½ hours later. That works fine if you’re coming from Washington State or Idaho and the train arrives in Whitefish at 7:26am. Not good if you’re coming from the east and the train arrives in Whitefish at 9:16 PM. You’ll need to get a hotel before you take the bus home the next day.

Two: If you’re coming from Missoula, you shouldn’t connect to Amtrak at Whitefish under any circumstances. Rimrock’s only bus from Missoula leaves at 8:00am and arrives in Whitefish around 11:25am. You will have already missed the Eastbound Empire Builder train for the day. The westbound train leaves Whitefish about 10 hours later – a long wait!

Three: The best way to connect to Amtrak from Missoula is through Spokane, Washington. Greyhound Lines has a convenient schedule that works well with Amtrak’s. Part of the beauty of connecting through Spokane is that trains arrive and depart early in the morning from both directions. So if you’re going to Missoula, your train will arrive in Spokane no later than 2:00 am. You can take the 5:05 am Greyhound bus and arrive in Missoula at 10:30 am. From Missoula, there is a 9:10 pm bus arriving in Spokane at 12:35 am The first train leaves Spokane at 1:15 am.

Four: Getting connected in Spokane is easy as Greyhound uses the Spokane train station as a depot. Since the connections are made in the middle of the night, this is very convenient.

Five: The Empire Builder is a train reserved for everyone. Whether you’re experiencing Amtrak’s enhanced bus service with in-seat dining and oversized pillows or Superliner sleeping accommodations, you need to make reservations early. By purchasing your tickets in advance for Amtrak and Greyhound services, you may be able to receive discounted advance purchase fares or special fares for students and seniors.
