      It is believed that buses plying on the route between Ipoh to Kuala Lumpur have some of the highest frequencies. The buises depart from Singapore as early as 4:00 am and the last bus leaves Singapore at 9:00 pm. I had booked a bus at 7:30 am and was surprised to know that there are buses every 30 minutes leaving for Kuala Lumpur from Ipoh. Although travel by train is faster but the locals highly prefer travelling by Bus – Thanks to its frequency and comfort. Since I wanted to take in the best of both, the beautiful landscape of Ipoh as well as the journey between the 2 cities the preferred mode of transport was definitely Bus. This is because I could have a view of the beautiful Gua Tempurung Mountain terrain as the Bus passes through this area on the North South Highway.

      Some of the famous Bus Operators plying on this route are Lapan Lapan Travel, Starmart Express, and The One Travel and Tours. I preferred travelling by Starmart Express based on my past experience as the Operator is quite punctual about its timings and the frequency is great too. I booked my tickets from… as I could choose from a list of Bus Operators as well as my departure time and my point of arrival. I had no issues during my journey and the staff was quite cooperative. The driver also halted for wash room breaks on requests and covered the entire distance within the stipulated time. If you are looking forward to set out on your journey luxuriously, I would recommend you to book tickets with Kesatuan Express. The buses are not only luxurious but also halt only at a fewer stops. The buses only have 27 seats and the ticket would cost you somewhere around SGD 36 to SGD52.

      The duration of the journey is about 5 hours but purely depends on the traffic condition on the highway. All Buses leave Singapore from the Tuas Check Point and provide a meal stop as well as a Washroom Break at the Yong Peng Food Court. If you are planning to embark on your journey during midnight I could get across only one Operator which was Golden Coach Express. Many of the popular Bus Operators had their pick up point around the famous Beach Road area like Jalan Sultan and Golden Mile Complex. The One Tours and Travel was the only Operator having its pick up point at the Boon Lay Shopping Centre. One of the main reasons to take a Bus to Ipoh was because the flight fares were too expensive and Fire Fly was the only airline from Singapore to Ipoh. Compared to the flight fare, bus ticket proved quite economical. Next when I travel from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur, I will make sure that I board a bus at midnight so that I can sleep comfortably throughout the journey at night and by morning I will reach my destination. Taking a Bus from Singapore to Ipoh is quite flexible comfortable and convenient.

      Best seafood joints to visit in Singapor

      May 15, 2018 ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

      It is quite unimaginable to not associate Singapore with food. Blessed with a variety of cuisines, Singapore has something to suit every foodie’s palate. Topping the list, though, is undoubtedly its seafood.

      The succulent crabmeat, the crunchiness of a shrimp, fine textures of a fish—this is just an overview of what Singapore’s seafood has in store for you. Albeit you should be able to find decent seafood all around the Island-State, we urge you to dedicate some of your time in discovering these delightful joints.

      Troubles faced in reaching these places can be squashed immediately. Buying online tickets for a bus is simplified by ensuring a hassle-free travel.

      The Naked Fin: This intriguing restaurant is hidden at the back of Gillman Barracks, a hard to reach spot in its own right. If you do happen to get a taxi up there, make sure you get them to take you all the way to the restaurant, otherwise the walk from the front gate will leave you a little sweaty

      Penang Seafood: Penang Seafood was where I tried one of my first Fish Head Curries in Singapore. Memorable for the spiciness for sure but also the succulent flesh of the fish. Penang Seafood also gets my vote in this list because they (obviously) specialise in seafood. So here, you can also order various other local seafood specialties like Assam Steamed Red Grouper, Chilli Crab and Cuttlefish. I suggest that if you do not like things too spicy you mention that when you order.

      Jumbo Seafood: One of the most reputed seafood restaurants in East Coast Seafood Centre and through all of Singapore, the must tries here including the Salted egg yolk prawns and Crispy baby squids. Try this once and I am sure you will ask for more.

      Long Beach Seafood Restaurant: Based in Kallang Park, local produce is given its due justice here. You cannot not try the Canadian Dungeness crab delicacies—the name itself is highly appealing!

      Palm Beach Seafood Restaurant: The breath-taking views that this eating outlet is based in One Fullerton offers complement the signature dish of this place perfectly, the Chilli crab.

      Sabio by the Sea : This Spanish sea food restaurant has a menu that is sure to leave you licking your fingers. The food here is best enjoyed with sea breeze blowing through your face. So if you are in for some Mediterranean delight make sure that this restaurant is on your visit list. I was quite pleased for having visited this restaurant as this was an awesome Spanish experience for me and was quite amazed by the grilled meats and sea food. I personally loved the Paella de Pescado which had lovely flavoured curry rice. The other best part of this place is that they allow pets. The next time I visit this place I am sure to bring in my sweet little Katy my cat. The ambience is also very pleasing. It gives you the feel of a relaxed atmosphere by the dock.
