Romance of travelling by train

Living in a global, well-connected city like Singapore gives you the opportunity to experience many of modern life's pleasures.

Except long-distance train travel, of course.

The country is barely 50km from end-to-end and anyone who has taken it knows there is no romance to be found at all in the hour-long stop-start journey from Jurong to Pasir Ris.

That's why I'm hoping that the new high-speed rail project that connects Singapore and Kuala Lumpur will indeed take off.
