Normally, I would drive down to Penang and back but it’s only economical if you’re fetching more people cos you can share the costs. Further more, it’s really really tiring to drive around 400 km!! How can you enjoy the trip when you’re already so tired from driving? >__<

So, le boyfie and I decided to take a bus back to KL from Penang since my friend who drove us there went back earlier… but all the news about bus accidents kinda freaked us out and therefore, we only select trusted companies like Aeroline. Before this, I only knew that Aeroline provides bus service to/from Singapore but a friend in Penang informed us that they do provide transport to/from Penang too! *joy*

As we’re tech savvy people, we kinda like to do everything online LOL! So we booked and paid for our seats via https://www.aeroline.com.my/ and print out the confirmation page in order to redeem the exact ticket on the actual date. Later on, we got to know that we actually just need to save down the Reference No. so we can save some papers next time!

One trip costs us RM 60 per person inclusive of a meal, drink, power point and a mini display that has a variety of movies, songs (they have Korean songs too!!). Earphones will be supplied to every passengers and since they have power points, you can watch movies from your laptop if you prefer.

The whole journey took around 5 hours but we can barely feel it cos there’s so much we can do to entertain ourselves. I can charge my smartphone that normally lasts only 1 hour under heavy usage (the battery already sot sot dei) to chat with friends via FB and Twitter, I watched Glee The Musical and also listened to some Korean songs hehe! We reached Corus Hotel in no time!

  • if u go SG by bus try this
    http://www.odysseynow.com.my/
    they provide wifi too…but the seats not as cun as aeroline laa…

    • Hmm I already got my data plan… is meal and mini display provided?

  • I love Aeroline! Used it last time to travel to Singapore. Comfy and nice : ) But I think their tagline confuses me – why convenient way to fly? No flying also! Haha!

    • Haha cos they have "air stewardess", meal and mini display just like a plane!

  • the chicken rice looks much better than AA! LOL

    • Haha serious? I never ate AA's chicken rice before XD

  • I think it's a great option and not a lot of time difference compared to the hassles of flying.

    • Yeah babe! It's really a hassle to get to LCCT, I'd need to wake up really early for that :/

  • I'd like to try this sometime. Flying is so unexciting!

  • I tried this before!! so comfy!! much better than first coach!! 🙂

    • Yeah! The facilities are what made the price so worth it 🙂

  • A good idea to take a bus..though it bugs me that it wont be easy for me to move around in Penang without a car unless I rent one:D

  • my friend travel back penang with aeroline too! but i find that it's kind of expensive tho if often travel this way :X

    • You travel back very often?
      But to me, most important thing is safety 🙂

  • Pretty relaxing to have all the services provided. Nice!

    • Yup, with all these services, you won't feel the long journey!

  • Heard good stuff about Aeroline before! Looks nice 😀 maybe next time when I head down to SG, I can use their service 😀

  • Ohhh… service tip top, just like an aeroplane!

  • I tried this before too! It's really damn comfyyyy hehe but why I don't have the mini display screen and nice meal like chicken rice? 🙁 hahaha

  • looks great, never sit before~ >.<

  • Wow. Never sit before but it looks good – the service. Should try their buses the next time I intend to visit Penang huh.

  • Nice! I always take this bus to Singapore! 🙂

    I've taken it to Penang too, and I agree, it's better than flying, no need to wait and for Singapore, very convenient stop for me, just hop on the MRT for a short trip to my sister's place.

    Oh Aeroline is great, especially for the services provided and the toilet! It depends on where you are staying too, COrus Hotel is far from LRT stations? I had subway for breakfast the other day 😛
