It is an interesting way of travelling that has caught on in recent years and it looks as though the trend is not going to stop. Packing bag packs for a bus trip to and across Malaysia has taken on a new meaning. This is because, it is the only way one gets to see the country from a different perspective, and one gets to save on the costs that would be higher while taking a car among others.
Interestingly, while taking the bus to Kuala Lumpur, one needs to take a few things in consideration. These are just but a few precautions that will help in making the trip both interesting and a learning experience.
Pack a map: this is vitally important as one is travelling in a foreign country that is not ones motherland. While taking the vehicle to Kuala Lumpur, one will pass through many scenic villages and knowing the places will help one in not making the mistake of passing through the same area twice. Having a map and a route will help one in effectively travelling the country faster and being able to drink in the beauty that is Malaysia.
Pack multivitamins: Malaysia is a beautiful country that is both hot and humid while being afflicted by two monsoon seasons. By packing multivitamins, one will be able to counter the effects of being caught in an area that is not what one is used to in terms of climate. Though one plans the visit at a time when it is neither too hot nor too wet, circumstances change in regards to the area one is travelling to. The lowlands are sunny but have high humidity while the highlands are cooler and wetter. Being prepared is being forewarned.
Carry enough and extra cash: KL to Singapore is a long journey and there will undoubtedly be many stops along the way. One will need to buy a few essentials on the way; one will also need to pay for a place to sleep and relax and one will need to of course pay the fare. Having enough cash is not good but one should have extra stashed someplace else for unforeseen circumstances.
Be sure of the times of the buses: This is because one would not want to be stuck at the bus station and it has already departed. The bus leaves as early as 5 am or as late as 12 pm. Having someone to explain the bus times will help you in knowing when a particular bus will be departing and arriving.
Being better prepared while on the journey to and through Malaysia will make the trip one that will be unforgettable. The trip will be both smooth and easy.
