This paper proposes a comparative study of the travel behaviour in two regions with a very different built environment: Nanjing, China, and the Randstad in the Netherlands. The results indicate that, in the former case, the configurations of current land use which support walking and cycling should be preserved as much as possible and that, in the meanwhile, investments should be made in fast public transport to facilitate economic developments. A regards the latter, it would seem wise to promote the use of walking and cycling by continuing to encourage compact land use
