A Bus Ride from Golden Mile Tower to Brinchang Hotel

Completed in the year 1974 Golden Mile Tower is basically a commercial property that is solely intended as an office space and also doubles up as a Bus Boarding Point. It is a 24 storey building with its ground floor exclusively dedicated for boarding and arrival of buses. There are quite a few coffee shops located on the ground level for you to sip on some coffee while your bus arrives. Not to forget if you reach too early there is also a moview theatre here with a seating capacity of about 1500. You can catch up on your favourite movies here to kill time. The tower is located in one of the most prime areas of Singapore and is quite easy to reach via an Intercity Bus. In the vicinity of Golden Mile tower there are shopping malls like Bugis Junction, Bugis Cube and the very popular Suntek City Mall. After my journey in Singapore came to an end I was convinced that my next destination was Cameron Highland. The distance between the two bus points was about 448 kms and the duration of the journey was about 9 to 10 hours depending on the traffic condition.

One of the most major bus arrival stands in Cameron Highland is Brinchang Hotel. I figured that this is the best place for a bus to arrive as you can just check out from your bus and check in to your hotel in a matter of minutes. After a tiring Bus journey this place serves as one of the best spots for some refreshments and much needed rest. I booked my bus tickets through Since I booked my tickets almost a week in advance I could get a window seat. The process of booking seats becomes quite easy because of the 3D representation. There were only 2 operators, Konsortium and The One Travel and Tours plying on the route beteen these two bus boarding and arrival points. There were about 6 buses from Konsortium plying throughout the day on this route. Surprisingly, all of the 6 buses had the same departure time that was 10 PM in the night.
There were about 15 to 20 seats in a Bus which was the main reason as to why they had to ply six buses. Each of these seats had ample of leg room and elbow space. The seats were equipped with modern facilities like two bottle holders, charging point and LED entertainment screens. The cost of ticket per head was SGD55. The One Travel and Tours had about two buses plying throughout the entire day one was at 8:30 pm and the other one at 10:30 pm. If I were in your place I would book the 10:30 pm to escape the notorious city traffic. This Bus was a mini Bus and the cost of the ticket per head was SGD42. My experience with Konsortium was quite pleasant. You have to travel in order to experience the same.
