The way I went to London from Paris

To London from Paris

The way I went to London from Paris is taking bus. I think the most people travel to London in Europe is usually use three way. 

1. Take three or four hours of low-cost flights.

2. Take two hours of Eurostar train.

3. Take eight-hours bus. 

After I checked these three ways, I chose to take eight-hours bus to London that I have to save money.

我從巴黎去倫敦的方式是坐公共汽車。 我認為大多數人去歐洲倫敦旅行通常是使用三種方式。

1.花三到四個小時的廉價航空。

2.坐兩個小時的歐洲之星火車。

3.搭八小時的巴士。

在我確定這三種方式之後,為了省錢我選擇坐八小時的巴士去倫敦。

Flixbus

Flixbus is a German company and is currently the biggest one in Europe, you always can see its traces in Europe.

If you take long-term bus, they will be have two drivers that if the driver is too tried, the other driver can replace his place which it’s really reassuring for passenger.

Flixbus是一家德國公司,目前是歐洲最大的公司,你能在歐洲常看到它的踪跡。

如果你乘坐長途巴士(8個小時),他們會有兩名駕駛員,如果駕駛員很累的時候,另一名駕駛員可以代替他的位置,這確實會讓乘客放心。

Now, the most of European multinational buses have WiFi, sockets and toilets. So you don’t have to worry about what if you want to go toilet on the bus.

But one thing you have to know is not every socket has work, some of them was not working! Therefore, if your phone battery was died, you should care that.

現在,大多數歐洲跨國巴士都提供WiFi,插座和廁所。 因此,你不必擔心要上廁所的情況。

但是,你必須知道的一件事是,並非每個插座都可以用,有些你會發現你插上去根本沒在充電,因此,如果你的手機電池沒電了,請當心。

In those many company of European multinational buses, the most impressed me was Regio Jet. If you take their bus, you will kinda feel that you take a plane not a bus. There is a screen in front of your seat, which allows you to watch movies and listen music, also they have waiter to ask you do you need some drink ? Just like service on plane.

在眾多的歐洲跨國巴士公司中,給我印象最深的是Regio Jet。 如果你坐他們的巴士,你會覺得自己乘飛機而不是巴士。 在座位前面有個屏幕,你可以看選擇看電影和聽音樂,他們也有服務生問您是否需要喝酒? 就像飛機上的服務一樣。

I was taking Flixbus on the time at 08:45 AM from Paris to London and back in Paris by night car.

我搭乘 Flixbus 在 08:45 AM從巴黎到倫敦,然後乘夜車回到巴黎。

There are 13 pick-up locations in Paris of Flixbus. So I chose Bercy station at the Paris Bercy Seine metro station on the 14th purple line.

Flixbus巴黎有13個接送地點。 所以,我選擇了在第14條紫色線上的 Paris Bercy Seine 地鐵站的Bercy站。

When I was taking the metro to the bus station on 6 AM, I saw a lot of backpackers carrying their heavy travel bags.

當我早上6點乘地鐵去公交車站時,我看到很多背包客都背著沉重的旅行袋。

After arrival at Bercy of metro, there is only one exit. But now there probably have other exits, just need to make sure which one is closer to bus station.

到達地鐵Bercy後,只有一個出口。 但是現在可能還有其他出口,只需要確保哪個出口更靠近汽車站即可。

After came out of the subway station, go to the left, it need to take a short walk about 10-15 minutes to flixbus station, but normally is according to which bus are you going to take.

There are many other bus stations at Bercy Station, so you can see many other company bus indicators, also you can see the Flixbus indicator.

從地鐵站出來後,向左走,到 flixbus 站要走幾步,大約10-15分鐘,但是通常是根據你要乘坐的公交車而定。如果你是搭乘其他巴士,或許會更快

Bercy車站還有許多其他巴士站,所以你可以看到許多其他公司的巴士指示排,也可以看到Flixbus指示器。

After pass this park, you will arrived at Flixbus station.

經過這個公園後,你就到達Flixbus的車站。

When you come in, check your bus on the screen first that will show the bus information on it, which they will tell you which one is your bus.

進來後,首先在屏幕上檢查你的巴士,該屏幕上將顯示巴士信息,他們會告訴您哪一輛是您的巴士。要在哪個站號搭你的巴士

If you can’t find the information of your bus, there have a service station next to it, you can ask and buy ticket on there.

如果你找不到公交車的信息,那麼旁邊有一個服務站,你可以在那邊詢問或購買車票。

Here, I want to share my experience with you. One time I was going to go to Belgium, my bus will leave about 10 more minutes after I came into the bus station. Obviously I have time to check which bus is the one that I gonna take, but some how, the screen was black on every screen, also the information station was still closed which mean I didn’t know where is my bus. So I was anxious that I was afraid to miss my bus again as l did last time.

Therefore, I was keep asking other people until I asked Flixbus stuff that I checked which one is my bus. If you have the situation as mine, you should ask other people immediately.

在這裡,我跟你分享我的經驗。 有一次我要去比利時,在我進入車站後,我的車還有大約10分鐘才會離開。 顯然,我有時間檢查我要乘坐的車,但是每個屏幕都是黑色的,而且信息站還沒開,這意味著我不知道我的公交車在哪裡。 所以我很擔心自己像上次那樣害怕再次錯過公共汽車。

因此,我一直問別人,直到我問Flixbus的工作人員,才確定了我該上哪台車。 如果遇到像我的情況,應立即詢問其他人。

After getting on the bus, the driver will give you an immigration card that you need to fill in the information.

In Europe, if you go to UK, you have to fill in the immigration card. The experience of mine, if you go to other countries you don’t need to write immigration card. However, you also have to do entry formalities in UK. Just the same procedures as you take a flight.

When you pass customs in the UK, the customs will also ask you few simple questions.

I was asked: Are you coming to the UK for five days? Do you live in London? Are you coming to visit it?

And then the baggage will pass through the X-ray machine. After all of these, you’re officially into UK.

上車後,司機會給你一張入境卡,你需要填寫該信息。

在歐洲,如果你去英國,就必須填寫移民卡,而其他國家則不需要; 但是,你還必須在英國辦理入境手續,這與你乘坐飛機的程序相同。

當你在英國通過海關時,海關也會向你問一些簡單的問題。

我被問:你要來英國五天嗎? 你住在倫敦嗎? 你要來參觀嗎?

行李也會通過X光機。 完成所有這些之後,你便正式進入英國。

The Multinational buses in Europe, such as Filxbus, Regio Jet, DB Bus, etc. You can use mobile ticket that let the driver scan the QR code, which you don’t have to photocopy the ticket so that you can save the photocopying fee. First time I didn’t know it until I saw others just show their QR code to driver.

Paris is not as convenient as Taiwan, it can be solved by a convenience store, if you want to copy something and it’s very cheap!
On the contrast, the photocopying shop in Paris, the price is really high, and these black and white papers cost me 10 euros…

歐洲的跨國巴士,例如Filxbus,Regio Jet,DB Bus等。你可以使用移動票證,使駕駛員可以掃描QR碼,而不必對票證進行複印,從而可以節省複印費 。 第一次,我不知道,直到我看到其他人只是向駕駛員顯示他們的QR碼。

巴黎不如台灣方便,如果要復制東西,可以通過便利店解決,而且價格很便宜!
相比之下,在巴黎的影印店,價格確實很高,而這些黑白紙花了我10歐元……

If you take Eurolines, they don’t have the QR code, so they asked to print the ticket that they can check your tickets and your name on their list.
Remember, you have to pay attention on the tickets and requests provided by each bus!

如果你乘坐Eurolines,他們並沒有QR碼,因此他們要求打印票證,以便他們檢查你的票證和你的姓名。
請記住,你必須注意每輛公共汽車提供的門票和要求!

Flixbus has their app that you can use. In the app, you can see when your bus will come and leave.

Sometimes the bus will be delayed just like one time when I need to leave Würzburg, the bus is still not coming which made me so worried that I didn’t catch it, until I saw the App!

Just click the top of the QR code that the driver scanning it, and then you can get on the bus. 

Flixbus有您可以使用的應用程序。 在App中,您可以看到公交車何時出發和離開。

有時候,公共汽車會像我需要離開維爾茨堡的時候一樣被耽擱,公共汽車還是沒來,這讓我非常擔心自己沒有趕上他,直到我看到App!

只需你上頭的QR碼讓司機掃描,然後你就可以上車了。

Notice

Here I want to remind you two very important point

1. Be sure to check your bus station’s address that you chose

As I wrote on the up of this article, first time I took my way to London, I chose to take Flixbus to go there; however, I didn’t check my bus station’s location which it Ied me to miss by bus. I remember I was chose the ”Paris Bercy Seine Bus Station”. I used the Google map directly to sharing ” Bercy Seine” which it guide me to another metro station. I just found out that there was no one bus at all when I arrived at there.

 

Thence, I searching the address of ”Flixbus Paris Bercy Seine Bus Station” immediately that I got the real one. But it was too late when I arrived there which it was 10 minutes late and the bus had left already…So I have to bought the ticket of next bus to London.

 

2. Be sure to bring your passport

Although sometime the bus driver would not check your passport, but obviously if you want to go another country, the customs officer will check your identity. 

Normally the bus driver will ask to check your passport before you get on the bus. If you don’t have a passport, you will be refused to get on the bus! One time, I was going to Copenhagen from Hamburg, one guy in front of me to get in line to get on the bus; however, the driver was check his ticket already and asked to see his passport before he get on the bus. He just told the driver that he lost his passport in Hamburg, but the driver still with strong attitude said you have to take your passport or you cannot get on the bus.

When I was in the bus, I watched him carrying his backpack helplessly and watching our bus leave which I want to remind everyone, In the country that you don’t really know, the passport is your identity that you must kept it safe, don’t lost it!

Here is my experience to share with you guys, I hope you guys will like it. Have a great day.

在這裡我想提醒您兩個非常重要的觀點

第一: 請務必檢查您選擇的公交車站的地址。

正如我在本文開頭所寫的那樣,第一次去倫敦時,我選擇乘坐Flixbus到達那裡。但是,我沒有檢查乘公共汽車錯過的巴士站位置。我記得我被選為“巴黎貝西塞納河公交車站”。我直接使用Google地圖分享了“ Bercy Seine”,它將我帶到另一個地鐵站。我剛發現到達那裡的時候根本沒有一輛公共汽車。

因此,我立即搜索了“ Flixbus Paris Bercy塞納河公交車站”的地址,就得到了真正的一個。但是我到達那裡已經太晚了,已經晚了十分鐘,而且公共汽車已經離開了……所以我不得不買下一趟去倫敦的公共汽車的票。

 

第二: 請務必帶上護照!

雖然有時巴士司機不會檢查您的護照,但是很顯然,如果您想去另一個國家,海關人員會檢查您的身份。

通常,公交車司機會在您上車前要求檢查您的護照。如果沒有護照,您將被拒絕上車!有一次,我要從漢堡去哥本哈根,我前面有一個人排隊等候乘公共汽車。但是,駕駛員已經在檢查車票,並要求在乘公共汽車之前先看護照。他只是告訴司機,他在漢堡丟了護照,但司機仍然懷著堅定的態度說,你必須拿護照,否則你不能上車。

當我在公共汽車上時,我看著他無助地背著他的背包,看著我們的公共汽車休假,我想提醒大家:在這個國家,您並不真正知道,護照是您的身份,必須保管好它,不要丟失他!

這是我與大家分享的經驗,希望你們會喜歡。祝你有美好的一天。
