Description: 

Johor Bahru, or “JB” as the Singaporeans call it, sits just across the Straits of Johor in Malaysia. Most people, when traveling to and from this huge industrial city, take a cab or a bus or a car across the Johor–Singapore Causeway, a roughly 1km road that links JB to the town of Woodlands in Singapore.

Fellow blogger Flora and I decided to take the train from Singapura to JB Sentral. It was such a thrill to travel on a railway line that was once a vital mode of transport between Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand. Truly, it was the journey of a lifetime.
