Transtar Premium/SVIP: Lavender MRT Station to Imbi Monorail Station (Berjaya Times Square) by Night Bus

For this accidental overland trip to Bangkok, it was an unplanned series of events leading up to a connection instead of actually wanting to take the train to Bangkok like how I would usually do it. I had already purchased a return flight ticket beforehand about half a year ago in prediction of the opening … Continue reading Transtar Premium/SVIP: Lavender MRT Station to Imbi Monorail Station (Berjaya Times Square) by Night Bus

Starmart Express: Golden Mile Tower Singapore to KL Sentral by Bus

By now you might be a little bit bored of these bus trip reports, since I'm almost loyal to one bus company only for the overnight ride from Singapore to KL, but I'll just do it anyway.

Heading to KL again, I was definitely not going to get the train after what I had experienced, so I went back to my old reliable Starmart Express.

Sri Maju Express: Penang Sentral (Butterworth) to Woodlands Checkpoint (and Golden Mile Complex) by Bus

Coming out from the rather temporary walkway from Butterworth Railway Station, I found myself back in Penang Sentral's ticketing area where I had my Easybook booking in my phone which I made while on the train ride from Anak Bukit to Butterworth.

Starmart Express: Failed Trip from Golden Mile Tower to Kluang by Bus (Truncated)

Starmart Express provides lots of links to Peninsular Malaysian cities other than the common KL or Genting from Singapore, and I opted for them to get to Kluang too.

Billion Stars Express: Kuala Lumpur to Johor Bahru and Singapore by Night Bus

After making my selection of less crowded buses since my initial Eltabina Express was cancelled, I settled for Billion Stars and got a RM1.50 refund for the fare difference, thinking that how bad could it further get as long as I get moving at midnight. Another slight boo-boo on TBS's side, my boarding pass was … Continue reading Billion Stars Express: Kuala Lumpur to Johor Bahru and Singapore by Night Bus

Starmart Express: Kuala Lumpur to Singapore by Bus

Having tried the overnight journey from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur before, I decided to give Starmart a go for a daytime journey back to Singapore. Starmart departs from Berjaya Times Square in Kuala Lumpur and not Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS) like most typical Super VIP buses do. More accurately, it departs from Imbi monorail station which … Continue reading Starmart Express: Kuala Lumpur to Singapore by Bus
