Guide to taking a ferry from Singapore to Pengerang, Johor
We know what you’re thinking: not another guide on how to travel from Singapore to JB., But hear me out. After reading about the positive experience of a woman who took a ferry to Pengerang, we just had to try it out for ourselves.
Since there are no flights to Johor from Singapore, the only way to avoid the risk of being stuck in traffic for hours on land is to cross over by sea. And for anyone who has been on the Desaru ferry service, you know it’s now almost always crowded and the ticket costs over a hundred bucks.
That, my friends, was a pretty big incentive to find out if this cheaper and faster alternate route was a viable one. Well, we ended up having quite the adventure and here’s what went down on that fateful Friday we took a ferry from Singapore to Pengerang, Johor.
Where is Pengerang?
Few people have heard of this town and for good reason. It’s not known as a tourist destination but is rather a major hub for the oil and gas industries in Malaysia.
