Last week (7-9 June 2014) I was traveling from KL to Singapore for a business + leisure trip.
But the problem was, I have never been to Singapore like 10 years?
I got no clue which bus / coach should I take to travel from KL to reach Singapore.
The first thing I did was ask around and google on it. Many options popped up from the search engine results.
Now, I am facing two problems here:-
1) Which bus / coach company is safe, comfortable, reliable and with a reasonable price?
2) Most of the pickup points are located far from where I stay. Should I take a cab to reach the pick up point or rent a budget hotel nearby stay overnight? Because I plan to set off very early in the morning like 6am. That means I got to wake up like 4am / 5am to start preparing my stuffs.
1) I asked around some friends and also the JefferyLam.com blog community for advices. To my surprise, you all are really helpful by giving me lots of input and suggestions. Most of the votes goes to Aeroline.
So I went to Sunway Pyramid, there is a Aeroline counter located opposite of the main entrance of Sunway Theme Park. I chose a good seat on the upper level and bought the ticket at RM95 per trip.
However, I couldn’t set off from Sunway Pyramid due to the earliest trip they have is on 11am. The friendly staff suggest me to go to Corus Hotel at Jalam Ampang, KL instead. Ok, I accepted her idea. And I gotta reach there before 6am.
2) I don’t have anybody can fetch me that early in the morning to reach Corus Hotel. Either I have to wake up around 4am to catch a cab at 5am or I have to rent a budget hotel nearby to stay one night. Which one is more practical for me? At last, I took the earlier choice. The taxi fee is RM50, because it is consider midnight rate.
The facilities available here are like you can watch movie, listen to songs, a bottle of mineral water is provided, blanket upon request and power socket (but it seems faulty, can’t charge my handphone).
Malaysian favourite local food – Nasi lemak were served too. But the portion is quite small.
The aircond is very cold.
I felt like I am inside an aircraft with stewardess servicing the passengers.
This is the first time I am taking a VVIP Coach oversea. Comfy and left me with a good experience.
