Another reason why I finally decided to join MJ on this trip was because of this train ride as I donâ€™t think Iâ€™d be able to do this on my own.Yes, I was afraid of traveling by train, alone.Well, it wasnâ€™t so bad after all.We went with the International Express train, which only offered second-class berths.But again, I felt like riding on a VIP couch.The seats were soft and comfy enough and at night, they turned the seats into sleeping berths with curtains for privacy!I got problems with the airconditioning though.It was too damn cold!A girl from a tropical country isnâ€™t used to that kind of weather.
So, it was about a 20-hour ride to Bangkok.Those hours were spent mostly chit-chatting with fellow travelers, sharing travel stories, photos and even food, reading LPâ€™s Southeast Asia on a Shoestring, listening to my iPod, and sleep, sleep and sleep.At least I was able to rest from our 4-day continuous touring.Just preparing myself for Bangkok.BKK weâ€™re coming! :)
Hi, what do you mean? Kung saan papatatak sa passport? I think it was at the last province of Malaysia that we passed by. We stopped for a while for immigration. First desk is the Malaysia immigration for exit stamps then next naman ang Thai immigration. No questions asked. Tatak agad. :) There were food vendors too so you can buy your dinner there na din pero food sold at the train were fairly priced and decent naman.
