Bus arrived on time, lots of leg room. Only downside was that the bus smelt a bit of urine.

The bus was the most fanciest bus I have ever been on! Loads of legroom, cup and phone holders, USB charger, foot rests, seat storage, a mixture of leather and fabric seat that recline. It was like the first class travel of coaches and the four hours flew by. I would've given it five stars by the waiting lounge at Nice bus station looks like it's falling apart and the bus was 15 mins late.

We enjoyed our bus journey and had a very considerate, helpful bus driver. Good local food and toilets available at 30 minute stop. Air con was set too low and we were cold... you need extra layers of clothing for this bus ride!

The bus was already delayed by 30 minutes in Kuala Lumpur. The waiting area es very poor. On the way we have stopped once and the driver said: 20 minutes. After 40 minutes he has finally appeared with 2 big bags. Finally we have arrived 2 hours later than planned to Penang.

Bus was slightly late but that was fine as we were too! Very spacious coach with curtains which is good if you want to nap. I wouldn’t recommend the back row of seats as you are much higher up than the rest and feel EVERY single bump in the road, we were flying out of our seats at one point! Other than that, good and very reasonably priced journey.

The bus is good and everything way on time. 1 stop between for the toilet was enough.
