Ipoh/KL Trip - Bye Bye Ipoh
Day 3 of my Ipoh/KL trip, time to say bye bye to Ipoh and head back to Kuala Lumpur. Thought we would miss our train, we were caught by the traffic jam hahaha. Our hotel was so near the railway station, so we thought we leave the hotel at 1.30 pm and can reach the railway station in 5 minutes but there was a minor traffic jam but we still make it to the train station in more than ten minutes despite the short distance of the hotel from the railway station. Do check your ticket for the train number, as Ipoh is the last/first station, the train will just park at the station, so before boarding the train, check the train number on your ticket against the small screen on the train. The train will only shows the terminal of the train that is Seremban and not KL Sentral, although we are heading to KL Sentral. KL Sentral is somewhere in the middle of the Route between Ipoh and Seremban. Our seats (arrowed in picture) facing backwards to the direction of Kuala Lumpur, could not manage to get the forward facing seats. But I dont feel the train going backwards cause I pull the window shutter down and plug in my MP3 to listen to some music. The trip back to KL was a bit longer about 2 hours 30 minutes that was why the ticket cost RM25 compared to the earlier train we took from KL to Ipoh that took us 2 hours 15 minutes and the ticket cost me RM35.
