Malaysia to Singapore

12th Feb 2016

We woke up at 5 AM, had a sumptuous multi cuisine breakfast at the hotel at 6 AM and checked out at 7.30 AM.

We are now on our way to Singapore. The bus drive down hill was really spectacular.  At times the clouds seemed to be below us and at other times it was like we were driving through the clouds.

It was cold as we went down Genting Highlands.  On the way our guide showed us the place taken over by Fox Studios which was to come up in Genting.  In an hour we reached KL and continued with our journey.

After about 200 Kms  around 10 O'Clock we stopped for refreshments at a place called Ayer Kerom in the state of Malacca.  We filled in our immigration cards and continued with our journey at 10.30.

After crossing the city limits the drive was even more was like driving through the streets in the state of Kerala,  India...with  greenery  all over.

The stop for lunch was at Putheri harbour. .... ... Olive Restaurant opposite the Putheri harbour yatch club. It was a half an hour break.

Malaysia border was 1/2 hour drive from here.  2 PM we reached Malay border and left in half an hour after the formalities.

 I feel there is so much more  in this country and a two days stop over is just nothing.  A minimum of 8 days is needed  to explore this beautiful country.  Penang, Lankawi, Malacca etc are other lovely destinations which we were unable to visit during this short trip. Stay and food are both cheap.   Travel within and to the country is also not expensive. The Budget Air Asia flight is really cost effective.

At 3 PM we reached Singapore border.  There were a lot of vehicles and the ques were too long at the immigration.  However the ques moved fast enough and we were able to leave the place at 4 PM after our customs formalities.
