bus VIP, New Asian Travel, Jun 11, 2019
We took the bus from Georgetown Penang to Ipoh. The trip was pretty good but just know that there is a transfer further south on the island. You will have to get off the bus, go to a ticket counter, wait about 45 minutes and then get on another bus. The bus stop in Ipoh is about 5 miles from old town and so you need to get a grab or taxi or wait for a Public bus.

bus VIP, New Asian Travel, Apr 5, 2019
Told when we got to the ticket office to check in that our bus had been cancelled. Got rushed onto an earlier bus and told we’d have to change, when we asked where we’d change, we got ignored. We got told to change seats multiple times. No one explained what was going on. Eventually got to our destination having not changed buses. We just had to hope for the best the whole way; terrible communication!

I maintain low standards when travelling Asia, but this exceeded expectations, the coach was spacious and comfortable. Only disappoint is that your dropped off 5 miles away from destination, so no choice but to get a taxi.

Butterworth train station is pretty basic. The train was comfortable and I enjoyed the views along the way. Air conditioning very cold. Bring a shawl or a sweat shirt

We connected with a very early morning ferry from George Town, on our way from Butterworth to Ipoh (and then on by bus to Cameron Highlands). Ferry connection was very easy, train was on schedule and very comfortable.
