Black Table's excellent guide to the Chinatown bus to Boston is also a glimpse into what it's like to travel pretty much anywhere in Asia, outside of Urban areas: Cheap, crowded, uncomfortable, and maybe a little crazy. But with less white people (usually). And while Black Table reassures that first time riders will not be the "only white person on the bus," Gothamist would like to remind people of the semi-derogatory Cantonese terms for whites, just so you'll know when you're being discussed, even if you don't know what they are saying: gwei lo.

There was a recent arrest in the stabbing of one Chinatown bus employee and Gothamist on earlier incidents. Andrew J. Sinclair and Jemima on the Chinatown bus.
