Bus VIP, New Asian Travel, Dec 5, 2019
Awful bus company. The amount of stops this bus made throughout the trip was insane. Trip was advertised as 4h 45min and it ended up taking over 6 hours. The absolute only reason for that was because of the amount o FB stops they made and the fact that each time they stopped it was for up to 45 minutes or more. The first stop was 10 minutes into the trip and it lasted for 45 minutes! Then shortly after that they stopped again and yelled at us to switch busses. The bus we had to switch to smelled awful and the new driver was incredibly rude. He then made another stop at a mall that seemed super unnecessary and despite his assurance that it would be for 20 minutes, it lasted for 45 minutes as well. It seemed like he was trying to scout people at the mall to fill in extra seats on the bus so he could pocket the money because he was gone for far too long and finally came back with 3 new passengers, whom he dropped off on the side of the highway before our final destination. Never booking with this company again.

The travel agent said to be there at 3.15 but with no clear instruction that actually there would be a 45 minute wait. Then a taxi came to take us to the actual bus station and the bus waited for us and left late - at 4.20. Then with a journey that took almost 5 hours that arrived later than was advertised, there were no comfort breaks. Not great.

The bus we got on from Komtar later gets changed before leaving the Penang island and we weren't told this. We also left almost a full hour later than scheduled. Would take the train next time for more professional service.

Good service. If you book online, when you get to the bus station you must head upstairs to get your ticket printed (this costs 1 ringgit). Nice bus, very roomy seats. Our bus ran a little late that stated but not by too much. I would recommend this service.

Very nice driver. Very comfortable bus. Bus needs a good clean though. Cockroaches of all sizes crawling around the windows and walls. Other than that- excellent experience! Thank you :)

Good things first. We had a comfortable trip in comfortable seats. The drivers were both good careful drivers, who knew where they were going. We had one comfort stop. Sadly bad bits:- We checked in 30 mins before and was told our bus for 10:30 was in lane 8. We then stood by the bus until 10:45 with other travellers waiting for a driver. The drivers arrived, did not check anyone's tickets and just sat down and chatted together. At 11:00 the man from the ticket office had words with the drivers and they started the bus. We put our cases on and sat in our allocated seats and one of the drivers then drove the bus off....Without confirming tickets or which bus etc. At the comfort stop we were told 20 mins only. Everyone was back except the drivers who were eating and chatting. The driver got on and started the bus and had to get it moving and honked for the second driver to join us. This was 35 mins after we arrived. Arriving in KL the bus went to one terminal before KL sentral. Driver pulled up and didn't say anything. Some got off but most of us didn't know if we should get off or not. After 5 mins the driver got on again and we drove off. It was an odd journey which got us into KL 1.5 hours later than intended....at the start of the rush hour!

We had to change bus within Penang for the real departure, it's a silly system which make no sense. As with many of the other reviews, this journey does not take 5 hours, I'd allow 7 hours if not more. Driver was smoking through his window as driving which made the bus smell of smoke which wasn't pleasant. Other than those two things the journey was fine.

A little confusing having to go from the New Asian stop at the mall to the Penang bus terminal by the airport and then get a ticket changed again to another bus company...very confusing. But the ride was fine. :)

The bus was excellent: there were plenty place for the legs and you could rest and enjoy the ride. On the other hand we were sent to a bus leaving half hour later and at a break they stopped at some place that isn't on a highway, but a restaurant outside the road with poor hygiene conditions. If you don't mind it, everything else was fine.

We left New Asian Travel Office at 12:45 instead of 12. The site mentioned that it is about 5 hours of travel but it took us 8 hours from Penang to Kuala Lumpur.

Quite comfortable, with a stop at a nice place halfway. Bus was delayed by an our though and the driver was looking at his phone as much as at the road.

Trip from Penang to TBS took 7-8 hours instead of the advertised 5h. Almost missed my flight in KLIA. Please adjust the online time schedule, as this duration seems to be the norm.
