I must confess , i'm a train buff.I dream of travelling via the trans siberean railways and the famous canadian rocky railways.I had travel extensively via train in thailand previously and i really wish that i could have the time to travel all the way to china by rail . I know people who had done it and i'm very confident that i can do it but time is the deterrent factor .
Recently me and my wife travelled from KL to penang via train in a 1st class sleeper coach . This was the first time that we had travel in a first class sleeper coach . Actually there was nothing much to see if you travel at night but the rocking motion of the train made your sleeping more comfortable than usual . I end up waking up feeling very fresh and relax.
The cabin was not very big but it was very comfortable and i was told the night sleeper cabin for train heading to singapore was a bit bigger with its own small toilet and shower .
