we had a fairly interesting day yesterday to say the least!! we had heard of a few day trips you could do and as we were fairly short on time in singapore we fitted then both into yesterday!!
we got up early and caught the express bus to Johur Bahru in Maylasia (its right at the southermost point of the maylasian peninsular) which you get to by just driving over a causeway built to link maylasia and singapore. we had to get our passports stamped both out of s'pore and then into maylasia on the bus journey and we then headed out for a walk round the city. We took in the various "sights" of the city and attempted and failed to do some cheap shopping as even at half eleven in the morning the shops were only just opening up.
After a few hours of sightseeing we got the bus back over the causeway to s'pore and here is when the fun started as we had accidentally forgotten to get our passports stamped back out of maylasia so therefore we could not get back into singapore. we were then marched throught the s'pore immigration offices, shoved back onto a bus and told to go back to maylasia and get stamped out. you try arriving at maylasian imgration and trying to explain why you are trying to enter the country when you already have a stamp in that day and just want to go through to the border exit - we were them marched across eight lanes of trafic entering singapore to the maylasia exit to get our passports stamped out of maylasia. we then for the second time got a bus back to s'pore and caught the bus all the way back to the city centre. an interesting morning to say the least and all for the sum of one pound sixty but our adventures for the day didnt stop there - oh no!!!
