First time riding a 5star coach to Malaysia
I had short vacation at Kuala Lumpur with my parents.They took 1 week leave from work so i brought them over to KL for a short vacation. Deliberately chose a better coach company because it is their first time taking a bus to Malaysia and moreover the journey was 6 long tiring hours.
Transtar Solitare VIP Class, $59/pax, Golden Mile Tower > KL Time Square
You can buy an air ticket to kl with this rate on an off peak period. This bus rate is double the rate of an average coach to kl.
Good Service: However, their service was commendable. A guy in suit will be waiting to bring you to your seats when you board the bus. Announcement are made over the speakers before every stop and before you reach your destination, just like how it is done on a flight.
After going through immigration on both sides of the country, they drove us to the first stop. The bus steward went out of the bus to settle some errands while the driver drove us nearby to refill petrol.
Food & Drink Service: Along the way, the bus steward came up to serve us prepacked meals, presume that this was collected when he left the bus earlier on. The food was served warm. We had Nasi Lemak with fried chicken chunks, the chili sambal was nice.
Comfort: Blankets were given to all of us after the meal, and everybody had the option of hot tea/coffee to drink during the journey. The bus air-con was really strong but thankfully the blanket and tea kept me warm. There is a second drink service (biscuits given this time) after the 2nd stop.
There is only 18 seats on this bus, each seat equip with entertainment screen and massage function.
I would recommend this bus if you are bringing elderly parents, or simply looking for a luxury ride to Malaysia.
Cons: However, Transtar can work on ensuring that the seat massage function and TV screen work for everyone. But despite not being able to watch any movie, i was self entertained with the Malaysia scenery along the journey.
Welcome to Kuala Lumpur!
