Get the coach they said. Quick and easy they said. Better than flying when you factor in transit to and from the airports and baggage they said. Liars. All of them. Admittedly Kevin and I were probably very unlucky, but what was supposed to be a 4-5 hour coach journey getting us from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore in the early afternoon totalled at just over 9 hours. Delays departing, being held up at immigration by other passengers and traffic all combined to make a journey to forget. As it was early evening, our first foray into Singapore was in Chinatown around our hostel for food, drinks and then a trip to Clarke Quay for a messy (and expensive) night out. Most expensive city on the planet? Our first 8 hours cost more than 4 days in Malaysia, so possibly!
