Day 36: The cheapest way around Bangkok — RailTravel Station

As my hostel was near the Bangkok (Hua Lamphong) Railway Station, and I was meeting a friend in the city for dinner, I figured the fastest way to get to our meeting point was by none other than the railway itself. Of course, it turned out to be the cheapest way too. Price I paid […]

Boat trip to the river mouth

After a whole day without electricity. I am back at 7.45 pm after Tenaga “rewired the loose connections” of my 3-phased supply. Thanks to Chye Hong’s wiremen for “pulling out the plugs” of all electrical appliances as we thought it was short-circuit problem which was of a more common occurrence in my house. They checked every possibility and said that Tenaga meter is the problem and they are right. It was hot and sticky day because of no fan, no internet, no blogging, no TV, no fridge, no washing machine, and we are so dependent on electricity in modern time. Felt so helpless and “depressed”. Anyway, all things said it is back to normal again. I can do my blog entry again from now. Better late than never.

Tenaga is the sole Malaysia’s National Electrical Utility Company.

The Thai Royal First Lounge Bangkok (D) is the main First Class Lounge of Thai Airways. Flying the Etihad Airways First Class, we were lucky enough to be granted access to the Royal First Lounge Bangkok and though were able to enjoy several amazing features of the lounge. Even though we were a little ill, we truly enjoyed the great Thai Royal First Lounge Bangkok (D).

Check out our rating of the Thai Royal First Lounge Bangkok!

Thai Airways offers its passengers four lounges at Bangkok Sukhumvit Airport.

Etihad Airways First Class may not be the flagship product of Etihad Airways, but it definitely is one of the most comfortable ways to fly in the whole word. We had the pleasure to try the amazing Etihad Airways First Class on a Jet Airways configured Boeing 777 on our flight from Bangkok to Abu Dhabi and couldn’t have had a better experience. There’s rarely any negative point about the Etihad Airways First Class.

When boarding our Etihad Airways First Class flight on a Jet Airways configured airplane, we were looking forward to an incredible experience.

  • Airplane: Boeing 777 (configured by Jet Airways)
  • Cabin Class: First
  • Daytime: Evening till Morning
  • Food: Dinner
  • Seat Pitch: 90 Inch (229 Centimeter)
  • Seat Width: 30 Inch (76 Centimeter)

As we never flew international First Class ever before, this experience was supposed to be a very special one, especially after we were upgraded which was such…

The Peninsular Express is a rejuvenated service by KTM Intercity with an extension southwards to JB Sentral, a combination of the previous Senandung Langkawi and Ekspres Sinaran Selatan. The northbound train takes 17 hours and 20 minutes to travel along the Malay Peninsular. For the southbound journey, please click here.

Tickets for the full route, especially to Hat Yai, sell out very easily. If you are unable to get a ticket to Hat Yai, get a ticket to Padang Besar first, and then a separate ticket from Padang Besar to Hat Yai.

The train departs from JB Sentral at 5pm sharp daily. The Peninsular Express makes stops along most stations between JB Sentral and Seremban, and at major stations between Seremban and Hat Yai.

For this long journey, a buffet coach is attached on board. However, freshly cooked a la carte meals are only available between KL Sentral and Padang Besar…
