    In Bangkok, it is to be remembered that MRT –under ground and BTS –Sky-train are connected in three places such as. Silom, Sukhumvit and Chatu Chak Park. Let us start north from Siam with Sukhumvit Sky line up to Mo Chit, get changed to Chatu Chak Park to MRT –under ground and moved first east and then  southwards upto Sukhumvit and get to Asok BTS Sky-train and return to Siam moving towards west encircling the important places of the city.

    I-90, I-10, I-70, and Route 66 are some of the most well known east to west routes. Personally, I like I-90 and I-10 the best.

    Some of the best spots along I-90 are Badlands National Park, Boston, Chicago, and Bighorn National Forest. In Wyoming, I-90 ends, but the smaller highways will take you to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park.

    I-10 has some great scenery, and doesn't have as much directly on the highway, but puts you nearby some of the country's greatest things to see. Grand Canyon, Carlsbad Caverns, and Big Bend National Park are all within a day's drive of the road. There are also some big cities like San Antonio, Houston, New Orleans, and Palm Springs right on I-10.

    If I were to choose one or the other, I'd pick I-90 in the warmer months, I-10 in the cooler months.

    I know this question is old but I'm new to HubPages and just came across it. The best route depends on what you're trying to get out of the trip: scenery, history and culture, or speed and ease of travel. For sceery and culture, avoid the interstates as much as possible. U.S. 50 is a good highway in the middle of the country while Route 66 and U.S. 90 are good further south. U.S. 90 was the first cross-country highway in the southern U.S. and predates the interstates. It follows the Florida coast and Louisiana sugarcane fields, New Mexico mesas and Arizona national monuments and California's Coachella Valley. Route 66 takes longer to follow but you get to see so much pre-1960 culture along the way. For speed, I recommend I-10 in the south and I-70 in the north.
