Roaring Tiger, Sleeping Station

Dear friends,

Mensa Heritage proudly presents: "Roaring Tiger, Sleeping Station"

This cross-peninsula trip begins with a visit to Singapore’s now-defunct Tanjong Pagar station. Itinerary from then on includes a stopover in Kukup for seafood, a visit to the old train town of Kluang, a midnight ride through the jungle-clad interior of Peninsular Malaysia (catching the sunrise somewhere on the border of Taman Negara), and a final stop in Kelantan, where, if adventurous, we may cross over to Thailand on foot via Sungai Golok.

Some background: this particular night train from Johor to Kelantan is a new service called the Malayan Tiger, which uses ‘recommissioned’, refurbished Blue Train coaches from Japan. Check this website out for more information on the Blue Train: http://forums.sgtrains.com/showthread.php?tid=1177

Deadline: Wednesday, 18 Jan. But we will monitor train ticket sales, and may close earlier if tickets are selling fast. So don’t hesitate—confirm quickly! If you’re interested, but need a bit more time to mull it over, at least let me know so that I can alert you if we’re going ahead with ticket purchase.

This trip is OPEN to all; bring your friends/family!
