On 25 February 2016, JOM NAIK KERETAPI embarked on a trip from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Hat Yai, Thailand with the northbound journey via Sungai Golok on the eastern side of the Malay Peninsular, and the southbound journey via Padang Besar, on the western side of the Malay Peninsular.
I began my trip with a bus ride up to Kuala Lumpur to meet up with the group. I would have taken the train, but I took an earlier trip as I had some errands to run in KL before the trip began.
KKKL Travel & Tours is the Singapore-based counterpart of KKKL Express Sdn Bhd in Malaysia. They provide bus trips focusing on the eastern and north-eastern part of Singapore with convenient departure points such as Sengkang MRT, Tampines MRT, Katong V (Marine Parade), Tanjong Katong Complex (near Paya Lebar MRT), Lavender MRT and Textile Centre (Jalan Sultan/near Nicoll Highway MRT). I took KKKL because of past positive experiences while travelling with them and for convenience. I might not have been able to make it to KL in time should I have went for the cheaper option by travelling to JB first.
You can book your ticket online through Easybook , BusOnlineTicket or at the counters at Katong V or Textile Centre. There is no additional markup when you book your ticket online through Easybook or BusOnlineTicket.
