The last time we rode the ETS to Penang, so this time we rode it back instead.
After spending time at Penang Sentral having brunch at KFC we made our way to the Butterworth station at 12:00pm and ten minutes before the departure time we were allowed to board.
At precisely 12:45pm we left the Butterworth station. The next four hours or so was very pleasant and while Cat took a nap I continued working on our video edits, even managing to render one video.
For a fare of RM80.00 (approximately USD/EUR18) it is double the price of a bus ticket. The ETS does shave an hour off the travel time, and it does provide a difference perspective as it travels through some amazing landscapte. Whether paying double is worth it is debatable.
As we reached the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur we decided to disembark at the Kuala Lumpur Railway Station instead of KL Sentral as it was nearer our home by Grab. We arrived at 5:07pm and with that end our post here.

We do what we can to support local businesses, and it's always good to know that everyone here observes all related SOPs, it helps make us feel safer and reassured.
