Penang to Malacca Destination Reviews

The trip overall was ok, it just took way longer then the site told us. We arrived 4 hours later then we thought, but the drive itself was oké.
Bus VIP, Billion Stars Express, Apr 20, 2023
There are too many stops along the way and it got delayed by almost 2 hours. There was no proper announcement from the driver which stop can we have lunch as this journey took 9 hours from 9 am.
