With flight tickets between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur being cheaper and faster than busses and trains, we decided to take the earliest morning flight. This would give us a whole day to spend in the capital before digging deeper into Malaysia. This gave us enough time to see the Petronas Twin Towers, Little India, Chinatown and the famous “Pasar Malams” markets.
Our plan was to board the 11 pm night train to Butterworth, but since we had forgotten that the short flight had brought us into a different time zone, we missed the train by an hour. It felt like a hopeless situation, being tired and shelterless after being chased out of the train station. Luckily a man came over telling us that if we hurried up we could still catch a bus to our next destination, Langkawi.
