After completing my journey From London to Singapore in 40 Days, I figured that the journey could be further extended with transport options south of Singapore. Sure, Sentosa was the touristy *cringe* southernmost point of “continental Asia” (which is untrue by the way) and of my trip, but that’s not the most inspiring place to be.
The neighbouring country south of Singapore is Indonesia, with frequent ferries linking Singapore with Batam Island. And since it’s Indonesia, why not continue the journey to reach the next railway network to see how far I can go?
I’ve actually thought of this trip on the train ride to Bangkok during my trip From London to Singapore in 40 Days since everything was getting familiar and there wasn’t much adventure left (recap here), and so I made it a point not to fly till I actually go on this trip so that the journey from London remains unbroken on land. Although I did fly for a working trip during my “10-month transit in Singapore”, it was a return flight so it kind of cancels itself out since I didn’t fly one way and take the train back. And surprisingly, I’ll be embarking on this continuation trip faster than I expected.
Stay tuned for my journey from Singapore to Bali by Land and Sea in mid-May 2017.
