For those who travel by bus to get to another state or even to another country: what would you change about the system and what do you dislike about traveling by bus?
I love roadtrips and I would love to see a new "mechanic" in which you're able to relax, say, traveling while the drivers puts on some neutral ambient music or lo fi for everyone in the bus, nice decoration, really comfy seats, etc. And if we're talking about a travel agency, my family would love the tour guide to talk about the culture while relaxing and listening to soft music, programmed stops for us tourists and excursionists to take pictures, watch the landscape, etc., before we get to our destination. For the sake of immersion in the culture and relaxation.
I just think some of us enjoy the road way more than the destination we're heading. And I'm tired of just sitting and staring at the window for hours until I get to my destination, I know many buses have T.V. but they all play awful movies.
What about you?

*Note about the JR Pass*
Many people ask about whether or not the JR Rail Pass is worth it. It depends on your itinerary.
Plug your itinerary into Hyperdia to determine ticket costs, then compare to the below JR Pass options:
>7 day Pass: 29,110¥
>14 day Pass: 46,390¥
>21 day Pass: 59,350¥
Please check the /trv/ sticky before asking questions. It's filled with links to great resources, many of them specific to Japan travel.

Mexico and Tanzania!

I'm going to Mexico for a month in June and then flying over to Tanzania. What should I do in Central America for thirty days? I've traveled south of the border a handful of times, but this will be my first visit to Mexico. I'll be flying into the capital on June 26th and then flying back out around July 20th.
Mostly looking for suggestions on Mexico. I'm going to be staying with one of my friends in Tanzania, who's there with the Peace Corps and is fluent in Swahili. He lives on Zanzibar Island and has traveled a bit around the whole country. However, still down for suggestions, especially relating to Kilimanjaro. Is it possible to climb part of the mountain or get a decent experience in the park without paying a shit-ton of money?
