In Alor Setar
We managed to escape KL by 4 pm, before the rush hour traffic set in. Unfortunately the journey was not as smooth as I hoped. There were plenty of roadworks before Ipoh and before Tanjung Malim, we were caught in a jam for almost half an hour.
Further stuttering queues before reaching Ipoh, and the usual heavy traffic reaching Seberang Jaya. It was pretty OK after that.
We decided against stopping, reaching the hotel in Alor Setar just before 9 pm. I had a quick shower before heading to the cafe for dinner. ANd now it is time to catch some sleep. Another long day tomorrow as we would be making our way to Kuala Perlis, catching a couple of ferries to our holiday destination ...
