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. Starmart has new 12.45am departures from Singapore because, I guess, the super frequent midnight departures are still insufficient … Continue reading Starmart Express: Golden Mile Tower Singapore to KL Sentral by Bus

Starmart Express: Golden Mile Tower Singapore to Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS) by Bus

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.

As … Continue reading Starmart Express: Golden Mile Tower Singapore to Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS) by Bus

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. I thought that taking the first bus to Kluang at 6.31am would get me there in time for a Malayan Railway Fan Club meet-up session at … Continue reading Starmart Express: Failed Trip from Golden Mile Tower to Kluang by Bus (Truncated)

Starmart Express: Golden Mile Tower to KL Sentral by Bus

Despite the previous negative experience, I opted for Starmart again for their Singapore to Kuala Lumpur midnight departure due to their high frequency and affordable fares despite being the start of a long weekend, and I've not experienced anything negative so far for the northbound journey, so here it goes. I picked this journey to … Continue reading Starmart Express: Golden Mile Tower to KL Sentral by Bus

While Joo Koon initially served the Tuas area since the initial extension from Boon Lay, the East West … Continue reading Tuas West Extension: Gul Circle, Tuas Crescent, Tuas West Road and Tuas Link

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
