Onvriendelijk personeel bij de balie. Er werd niet duidelijk gecommuniceerd waar je naartoe moest. Vervolgens werd ik er op Sibang uitgezet (en kreeg een stuk papier in mijn handen geduwd) en heb daar bijna 45 minuten moeten wachten op een andere bus, die vervolgens naar de ferry reed en daarna pas naar Malakka. Rit heeft uiteindelijk 11 uur geduurd. Opstappen bij de ferry had me al 2 uur kunnen besparen.

If you can avoid this company I would. The seats are nice but the journey took over 12 hours, was an hour and a half late and they made us get in a taxi to another stop 20 minutes away as the bus just did not come to the Georgetown stop. Check trip advisor and google reviews if you don’t believe how terrible this company is.
