Easy Road Trip From Malaysia To Singapore Through EasyBook.Com

I’m a big fan of road trip!

Honestly, if I had so much time to travel, I’d choose road trip over flights anytime. I mean, I always get amazed with the scenery I see during my road trip while I can only see clouds on the flight when I open the window blind.

So when I decided to visit Malaysia and Singapore recently, I didn’t hesitate to ensure my brother that we were gonna have a road trip from Malaysia to Singapore by bus as it’s the easiest and cheapest way to travel back and forth.

For my trip this time, I didn’t even try to check any information on the internet because I believe things would be easier nowadays. The last time I had a road trip in Malaysia, it was in 2013, then my sister and I managed to have a nice trip so I suppose with easier technology and so many startups here and there, the road trip this time would be even a whole lot easier and I was right!

The first day in KL, I told my brother that it would be better for us to book a bus ticket for the next day so we could arrange what time we should leave to TBS (Terminal Bersepadu Selatan, bus station in Kuala Lumpur). What I did was just googling the bus ticket from Kuala Lumpur to Melaka and the next thing I knew, I booked the ticket through easybook.com!

The Battle of Online Cabs in South East Asia: Uber, Grab or Go-Jek?

I remember getting lost in the city that I had never been before with the language that I barely spoke, hailing a cab to get me somewhere without knowing how to tell the driver about your destination could be really difficult. Nowadays, with the emergence of Uber and then some similar platforms, life is a whole lot easier!

In the past few years, I get used to traveling around South East Asia and the existence of these platforms are so handy at times.

From my home country Indonesia to Uncle Ho’s Vietnam, I gotta say Uber, Grab and Go-Jek are applications that I would not delete from my phone as long as they operate. But which one is the best amongst the three?

Hard to tell, but everything has its perks so stay tuned! 😉

Review: Hotel Boss – Singapore

Frankly speaking, I have this love-and-hate relationship with Singapore.

As an Indonesian, of course everything I see in Singapore somehow looks so sophisticated to the point that sometimes I find myself in disbelief to see how organized everything is in this city state that took only around 1.5 hours flight away from Jakarta.

But as a part of ASEAN ‘Big Brother’, staying in Singapore could be a pain in the ass because honestly, everything is so expensive there!

From the food I bought from the street vendor to the hotel I stayed for layover, everything in Singapore was almost 5 times more expensive than in Jakarta. *sigh*
