the malaysian jungle railway

From where the Thai border meets the South China Sea down south to Singapore, a single track line cuts through the middle of the Malaysian peninsula, linking the deeply Muslim north with the mixed and more developed south of the country via isolated communities through the thick jungle. Local schoolchildren and market-goers use the train as their only available means of transport, and stack the aisles and vestibules high with organic matter.

You can join them, as Tim and May did, and experience the sights and smells (there are so many smells!) of jungle transportation, so long as you’re at the station for the off by 4am!

  1. Hello Hello Malay-Way – fab video! these just get better and better and what a fun journey, right through the heart of the country – I think you’ve seen more of it than I have by now! :-) Well done you with the continued exploring – and a spectacular debut my May, too :-)
    Speak soon!

  2. Hi Tim-great video-another trip for us to do when we are back in Penang. Nice to meet May to! Look forward to seeing you both soon-who knows where! Take care.
