We are very excited about the news that the high-speed rail link will come to Singapore from China! While the exact route is yet to be confirmed, it was reported that the expected rail line will connect from Kunming, China to Singapore, passing by Laos, Thailand and Malaysia. Construction will begin next year and expected completion date by 2014!
With this high-speed rail link from China to Southeast Asia, it certainly opens up more budget travel opportunities for independent travellers like us! 🙂
