Travel from Singapore to Penang by Bus
Promotions for cheap flight tickets are sure nice to have. But sometimes, you can also enjoy a cheap but comfortable journey or even luxury via bus transport.
When I last visited Malaysia last November, transport was not much of a hassle for me that I went personally to the terminal to book since the terminal was just near where I stay. A day before my travel date, I went to the bus terminal located in Golden Mile Complex at Beach Road. There are a number of different bus operators on the area. I went to booked Sri Maju at SGD39 for one-way travel that will stop at Sungai Nibong Terminal.
Sri Maju has a free mineral water drink and a blanket to sleep on. What impressed me was, they were able to meet the travel time as expected. We have our bus stops but no delays.
Though travel was a 9-hour long or more, I did not feel any uneasiness or maybe because I was just used of traveling via bus.
Upon arrival at the Sungai Nibong Terminal, my friend and I immediately booked my return ticket on the second floor of the terminal where there's a lot of bus operators you can choose from. This time I have decided to check on Five Stars coaches which costs SGD16 more expensive than Sri Maju.
The seat was just awesome. Spell L-U-X-U-R-Y. The seats are equipped with electronic snoozer that was so big, it is comparable to airlines’ business class seat. You can also enjoy your ride by either watching a movie or playing games.
For me, I would prefer for the luxury bus if I would be traveling by day because for sure, I will not get bored with the gadgets they offer. At the same time, the seats is just so comfy to sit on.
