Would like to check with the pros here. In terms of booking return bus ride from SG to Malacca, is there any difference between booking from busonlineticket.com or from 707-inc.com for example?

Am looking at boarding 707-inc bus for the trip

Clearly you ought to book directly at the coach company. In the case of 707 however, their online booking appears to be handled by easybook.

Yeah exactly its handled by easybook, which in this case is it still advisable/okay to book via their online booking? Thanks for your reply!

?!??!??!?!
It's an official 707 website, isni't it?
Easybook is their official reservation partner accessed through their website, isn't it?
Thus why is it not advisable/okay to book there?

Just worried that Easybook may not be reliable. Otherwise, thanks for explaining, will just book from their website straight then.

Don't rely on the onboard wifi. Reception is probematic.
If you want better wifi signal, sit near the driver, where the router is. They are using data sim. Signal strength is 'something is better than nothing' kind.

Has anyone taken starmart bus from boonlay to malacca in the afternoon? Thinking of booking the bus as boonlay is convenient for me but I read so many horror stories of the starmart buses going to woodlands/larkin first or being late and having to wait for them to combine buses or many stop overs. But those were mainly for KL buses I think . Was looking at the bus time in the afternoon though and there doesnt seem to have many other busses they could combine with and it doesnt make sense to go from boonlay to larkin so was considering taking my chances. Does anyone have any advice?

The rate at Hatten City Element Mall seem best. But nothing much there and location abit off...

Unless u staying there at Doubletree or Hatten Place.
Element seems like a ghost town when i go there 3 months ago.
The location is very off if u ask me

Hi!

May I know if Hatten Hotel is within walking distance to Jonker Street?

Any nice shopping malls near Hatten Hotel with cinema?

Thank you.
