Follow my journey from Bangkok to Singapore via the jungle line. Then, come with me when I spend a day in Cambodia. In this video I go over the costs of my trip so far and how much I expect to pay in total. Below are the specifics of the trip.
Bangkok > Sungai Kolok (train)
Tumpat > Singapore (train - jungle line)
The route from Tumpat to Singapore is the eastern line, also known as the jungle line. The other travels down the western coast of Malaysia from Butterworth to Johor Bahru . The jungle line is supposedly a more scenic, less traveled route and this is the route I prefer.
I'll spend two days in Singapore photographing Little India and Chinatown.
Singapore > Phnom Penh, Cambodia (Air)
On the evening of the 23rd I'll fly to Phnom Penh, Cambodia. I'll spend 24 hours there, photographing the city, before flying back to Bangkok on the night of the 24th.
Stops / Sites to Film
Thailand / Malaysia
Train from Thailand to Sungai, Kolok - riding the train is always an experience but riding third-class should be one helluva ride.
Tumpat, Malaysia - I'll have a few hours to kill before the train to Singapore. The plan is to find a nice place to sample some traditional Malaysian cuisine and check out the city.
Little India - India is a photographer's paradise and since I've never been there, I might as well see what Little India in Singapore has to offer.
Chinatown - Chinatown's location doesn't really matter. Chinatown is Chinatown and there's always a kaleidoscope of colors and plenty of action.
Hawker's Market(s) - still looking into this.
Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Riverfront at night
Riverfront in the day time
Russian Market - pretty cool market that I've been to 40 or 50 times. There's a little place in the market that serves great orange ice tea.
Cambodian Food - I don't remember the name of the places I want to go but I know their location.
