Airplane travel to India
People of integrated society today works, coordinates and relates to others both near and far with globalization technology, including swiftly developing communication and transportation. No matter, how far it is, talking to each other by real time is easy and very convenient. To meet together, just take a plane or a high-speed bullet train as in Japan or in fast-growing economic city in China, 300-400 kilometers in one hour approximately. Going to India to render homage the Lord Buddha, we don’t need to go by foot or by oversea ship which take a month as long time ago. All of us in the team agreed to go by plane with 1,612 kilometers, 2-3 hours and continue by normal train with 8 hours approximately to the place of the Lord Buddha Enlightenment. Different railway agency will take different time, there are many railway agencies in India, we have a choice to select.
