Kuala Lumpur to Butterworth Destination Reviews

Dreadful. 40 minutes late this was the starting point filthy. Most of the seat belts were broken. None of the advertise services were available. Terrible experience.
Bus Express, Billion Stars Express, Aug 9, 2022
Train was comfortable enough...however, the aircon was on so high...we needed to use clothing as blankets. Also the space to store luggage was too limited. One last thing, the food carriage was woefully understocked. Over all though, everyone was very friendly and helpful.

I had a great train ride. I would do it again. As a tourist from Australia, I was unsure where the train ride started from not realising there was a atation called a KL. But than again, maybe I was just a silly tourist. Keep up the great work!

The journey itself was very good BUT the train was very noisy and far too cold.

The trip starten out great! The TBS central was similar to an airport, and everything went smooth there. Our buss Journey was initially ok. Spaceous seats and not much to complain about. Around halfway through the trip the bus stoped at a station and, without explanation (our driver did not understand any english), we had to change bus. This bus had a lower standard. Filthy and without seatbelts.
