He was impressed with the train journey and even suggested that Thailand improve their train in the same way.
“I’m very impressed with everything. Thailand desperately needs to upgrade their rolling stock,” he wrote.
Like flying experience
He also compared the Malaysian train experience to that of flight services, with lunch and refreshments provided.
“Shortly after we departed, attendants came round with lunch which was included in the price of the ticket. Then two hours later they came round with coffee and tea and some snacks. Very much a similar experience to flying.”
He added that the best thing of the train is having a restaurant carriage in it and even hopes Thailand to have facility like this on their train too.
The post went viral with over 2.5k likes and many Malaysian netizens flocking to the comment section.
