Eastern Europe Trip // Warsaw: Heading To City From Modlin Airport – Being a very careful Asian tourist, and trying to save as much bucks as we can (or just trying to be super selfish), I wandered around the airport for a bit of time, trying to scout for the cheapest way to head to the city.
A bunch of cab driver swarmed to us and offer us a ride to the city for about 40Euro for all of us. It’s pretty obvious it’s very expensive, I cannot say they are scamming us, but they were offering us in Euro instead of Polish Zloty, so I guess it’s quite a rip-off. The information lady was very kind to show us the cheapest way, that is a about 15 Zloty per person by bus then via train to the city (Warsaw Central) and I guess the ticket include the public transport in the city Zone 1 for 60 minutes after validation as well. (But actually right, it can be cheaper! Forget about buying the bus ticket and just buy the train ticket because the bus driver didn’t even check the ticket also. Of course it’s illegal. :P)
The journey took about an hour and a half and we have to listen closely to the station announcement because there’s no English and Polish was like so new to me. The scenery along the was quite boring, it’s just like the other side of the world, definitely out of the ‘typical Europe’s expectation’, but it’s just cool getting away to somewhere different from Britain.
