    After considerable deliberation, investigation and discussion we decided that we would take the jungle line (electric and diesel train) from Johor Bahru, Malaysia to Kuala Lumpur. Johor Bahru is across the river into Malaysia from Singapore. Our online investigation into the finer detail of this leg was confusing at best. So we took a chance and booked the train tickets and figured we would “wing it” once we got out of the country.
    A S$25 cab ride to the Woodlands checkpoint (border crossing) and there we were, on foot, 830am, backpacks loaded, and already 29 degrees.
    Customs was a breeze at that hour on a Monday morning. With some help from local law enforcement we had directions to JB Sentral (our departure point). “It’s just across the river”. Great, we’ll walk. It was only when we got to the other side that the girls fitbit’s told us we walked 4km. I don’t think any of us are sure that what we did by walking across the border on foot, in the sweltering heat with roaring traffic literally inches from you was the best decision we have made as a group. But its early in the trip. And anyway it was fun.
    We had no hold ups at immigration on the Malaysia side and off we went to catch our train.

    Singapur in Sichtweite

    February 20 in Malaysia

    Fast wären wir heute schon in Singapur 🇸🇬 gelandet. Zumindest standen wir schon in der Schlange für den Bus. Am Busbahnhof in Johor Bahru wusste nämlich keiner so genau, wie man mit dem Linienbus in die City kommt 🤦‍♂️🤷‍♀️ – ging dann natürlich aber doch wieder irgendwie. Zehn Minuten vom Hotel entfernt, schon wieder fast in Singapur. Die Hochhäuser hinter uns (s. Foto 📷) stehen nämlich genau da und sind nur 1200 Meter Luftlinie entfernt. Das chinesische Neujahr ist irgendwie immer noch Programm, auch in unserer Hotellobby.Read more
