Day 254 – Tuesday 31st January 2017

Back to the buses…
We had to be at Golden Mile Station by 10:00 this morning to catch a bus which took us across the border into Malaysia and then all the way to Kuala Lumpur. The idea of a bus was quite warming, especially since we’d been flying so much lately, and although we didn’t book the best (or most expensive) option, we didn’t book the worst (or cheapest) either. Put it this way, there wasn’t Wi-Fi or anything fancy, in fact there wasn’t a toilet either, but we had our own seats and loads of leg room too.
It took us about twenty minutes to get to the border and then another twenty minutes to get through security, after which we we knew that it could take anything from four to eight hours to get to Kuala Lumpur. On the bright side it didn’t take eight, but it did take seven, which still felt like a pretty long ride. We had ourselves prepared though, with plenty of music and TV shows downloaded to pass time on the road.
We stopped once, for just ten minutes, at an old service station where we didn’t spot one other white person. Not one! Thankfully we didn’t need to talk to anybody though, else I think we’d have found ourselves in a spot of bother.
At 18:30 we arrived at Berjaya Times Square, then jumped off of the bus and walked to our hostel – Twenty5 by Ohana. It’s a very different to every other hostel we’ve stayed in before, but for a very unique reason. This one’s just on the 25th floor of a skyscraper! Unfortunately it was a little too cloudy to take a decent photograph from our window to show you guys, but I’ll definitely include one in my next post for you to check out.
We had a relatively early night because, as always, travelling left us pretty shattered. So many people had told us good things about Kuala Lumpur though, so we had a lot to look forward to in the morning!

    My wife & I did the run from KL to SIN a few years ago and enjoyed the experience – took about 5 hours from memory. You have an inserting blog – I enjoyed your Australian torus having done many myself.
