We didn't get any information from the driver. The bus stopped and we didn't know what to do. He took us to another stop. The construction was almost always, so the arrival was 2 hours longer.

Poor Timing. Arrive in Penang 3 hours behind scheduled arrival even though there was no jam along the highway. too many detours and pick up OR DROP-OFFS.

First of all. The chairs in the bus are amazing, so much more space then a plane. The massage function wasn't working? We left after 10, 10 minutes we had to change the bus, why? The bus driver didn't speak wish very well and is not really helpful, as a foreign traveller you don't know a lot about how it works at the border. A Tip could be to make a information paper which passengers can read while the bus drives. The bus arrived at my destination way too late, almost 4,5 hours later then planned. Where can you go as a woman alone when you were dropped at the bus station alone.
