Singapore to Johor Bahru and Johor Bahru to Singapore (Malaysia - Singapore Border Crossing)

Singapore to Johor Bahru and Johor Bahru to Singapore (Malaysia - Singapore Border Crossing)

It’s no secret that staying in Singapore can be expensive, but it’s also no secret to Singaporeans that everything is cheaper in Malaysia. To save on expenses during our travels, we decided to stay at a resort hotel in Malaysia that is just around the corner from Legoland in Nusajaya, Johor Bahru. Our cost at this Bed and Breakfast was just under $630 USD per month and we stayed for 2 months. We’ve learned that crossing the border takes time, so if you are limited on time, we certainly wouldn’t recommend it.

However, if you only plan to cross the border into Singapore once or twice per week…

The Best Sentosa Hotels, Attractions and Beach - Singapore

The Best Sentosa Hotels, Attractions and Beach - Singapore

Sentosa Island is south of the main island of Singapore. Nicknamed the “State of Fun” – It has attractions like Universal Studios Singapore, Trick Eye Museum, Fort Siloso, S.E.A. Aquarium, and Madame Tussauds Singapore. However, Sentosa actually translates to “peace and tranquility” and the lagoon-style beaches reflect that calm feeling.

Make $1,000+/Extra Each Month! - 5 Ways to Earn Money by using Social Sharing

Traveling the World on $2,000 per Month - Perception vs. Reality

Traveling the World on $2,000 per Month - Perception vs. Reality

When people say that they are going to travel the world for an entire year, the perception is that they’ve saved up a LOT of money to be able to afford it. That makes sense considering that The Motley Fool states that the average American is spending $1,928 for a week-long trip (per person). If we did the math, that would mean a full year of vacation would cost $100,256 PER PERSON - yikes! And, probably impossible unless you were super wealthy - thus the assumption that people think that we are rich (because we’ve been traveling the world for well over a year now). Well, the truth is, we have been spending no more than…

The Most Dangerous Places in the World for Travel - Dangerous Places for Tourists

It was easier to determine what “The Most Dangerous Places in the World for Travel” were twenty years ago, before “global terrorism”. With headlines like “Missing British backpacker found dead in Guatemala”, “Canadian found dead in Burkina Faso after kidnapping”, and “Fifteen men charged over beheadings of female hikers in Morocco”, the world seems like a completely different place today.

Ayutthaya & Bang Pa-In (Summer Palace) Day Tour from Bangkok - the Pompeii of Thailand

Ayutthaya & Bang Pa-In (Summer Palace) Day Tour from Bangkok - the Pompeii of Thailand

When we were researching this trip, we ran across many different posts that said that it was HOT in Ayutthaya. So, we planned ahead and looked for a potentially cooler day to go, and made sure that Ayutthaya was the first stop on the tour, and not the Summer Palace (as people noted that there were Air Conditioned spots at the Summer Palace, but not at Ayutthaya). Thus, we did this trip the CORRECT way - whereas the people who wrote the other posts did it backwards and didn’t pay attention to the weather. That being said, when we went it was UNBEARABLY HOT!!! Our favorite locations were…

River Kwai Tour and Death Railway to Kanchanaburi - From Bangkok, Thailand

River Kwai Tour and Death Railway to Kanchanaburi - From Bangkok, Thailand

This British-desired railway, connecting Burma and Thailand, was deemed to be too incredibly tough of an undertaking to consider, due to the hilly jungle terrain and absence of transportation and medical equipment. However, in 1942 - during World War II, the Japanese seized Burma and took control away from Britain and by October of 1943, “The Death Railway” - as it became known - was completed by the Japanese with no transportation between the workers and the outside world, no medical help, no advanced tools and very little food.

It is a heartbreaking story with grueling conditions of forced labor, including more than 60,000 Allied prisoners of war and about 180,000 Southeast Asian natives. Over 100,000 people died during the construction of the railroad, and - after Wold War II ended - 111 Japanese military officials who were connected to the Death Railway were tried in court for war crimes, 32 of which received a death sentence. The remains of most of the war dead were retrieved and transplanted to official war cemeteries.
