Transportation and accomodation

by majjensen

Hi :-)

Can anyone tell me:
1) Where to go to get a bus to Singapore?
2) what the price for a ticket is?
3) How long time the bus will take?
4) How to convert Singapore dollars into US dollars?
5) A name and a address on a backpacker guesthouse/ hostel in Singapore that's around 5$ a night?

THANKS!!
Maj.

University of Malaysia

by o00o

Planning of the Skudai campus was based on the concept of centralising the main activities of common interests around the mosque which is surrounded by other buildings within walking distance. This concept is in line with the university motto, "For God and Mankind".

Hot and humid climate all year.

by A2002

Sleeveless or short sleeved tee/shirts.
Comfy walking shoes.
Umbrella for the rain or sun. Any medicine prescribed by your doctors. There are many pharmacies around where you can buy common medications.
Prepare some medications for diarrhoea. It will be useful if you are unlucky and plan to eat at roadside hawkers.

Permas Jaya Golf Club

by chiabh

This 9-holes par-36 public course is in the Permas Jaya township, on the outskirt of johor Baru... The fairway is of cow grass and it plays to 3,125m from the blue tees... The club has a simple golfer's terrance and changing rooms for golfers... Night golfing is available on Wednesdays... Morning promotion rate is RM35 for 9-holes and RM45 for 18-holes... Caddy is compulsory if available... Buggies are only to be kept on track which is not normal for Johor Baru courses...

Pasir Gudang.

by A2002

Pasir Gudang is not a place for tourism. It is an industrial area with some major oil and gas companies, huge production plants and a port.

There is also a very very big golf course with much greenery around. Beautiful grounds indeed.

If you happen to be in Pasir Gudang, there's a "Orang Asli" settlement with several seafood restaurants along the coast. Best of all, all the restaurants are built on stilts above the sea water. "Orang Asli" are the natives of Malaysia and they have their own language. They live in houses built from wood along the coast. Some of them have their houses floating on the sea.

Seafood here is relatively cheap. To get there, one will have to pass through an oil palm plantation along a muddy path. The drive would be quite dark and I think one will not go if not familiar. Furthermore, there's a stretch of bumpy, unkept path to get there. Maybe you might give up getting there at night if you have never been there before.

At the restaurants here, do not expect superb service. These are just family run restaurants. Sometimes you can will have to wait for quite some time for your food to be served if there are too many people.

Here, you choose the fish, prawns, etc from ponds built on the sea (not fish tanks). Quite interesting to people from the city. The seafood here are very fresh and delicious. Best of all, still quite cheap (May2004).
