A Bus Ride to pocket friendly accommodations in Singapore
Some of the most pocket friendly hotels of Singapore have always been judged based on their low prices and top-notch services. It is not just the prices that set these hotels apart from each other but also the quality of service and the comfort that the rooms of these hotels offer. Since most of these hotels are located about 20 to 30 kms away from the airport, the best option to reach them is by Bus. Moreover, a bus ride will be cheaper and you will have plenty of money on hand, as you will be checking in to some of the most affordable hotels. What more can one ask for other than a pocket friendly journey and an easy to pocket stay. I had booked my bus tickets from https://www.redbus.sg/ and I was quite happy with the experience that I had with the journey. As per the website there are more than 15 to 20 Operators plying on the route between Malaysia and Singapore.
Seasons Express, 5 Star Tours, Star Mart Express and Pacific Express are the top preferred Operators. All these Operators ply more than 20 to 30 buses in the entire day leaving you with plenty of choices, segments and timings to choose from. I have always travelled with the Operator Pacific Express and as usual, I felt that the money spent was completely worth it. Pacific Express had about eight buses departing from 1:00 am to 9:00 am in the morning. Since I am a night traveller, I chose to book a seat on the bus departing at 3:00 am. It cost me just SGD20 which I found to be quite affordable compared to the quality of services that the Operator had to offer. The duration of the journey is about 5 hours and I hardly realised how this time passed by.
