Off to Penang!

Penang is located almost at the end of the Malaysian Peninsula and is just over 700km away from Singapore. A road trip this long is no small undertaking for any driver and should not be taken lightly. As far as possible, it would be useful to share the 7 hour drive with another driver. It is possible to take on the trip alone but ample rest periods must be included to avoid fatigue.

After crossing the immigration at Tuas Checkpoint, we arrived at Geylang Patah rest stop just 10 minutes past the check point to top off the tanks before heading out. More than 90% of the journey would involve highway driving and due to our departure timing, we will be doing an overnight drive to Penang. Something that shouldn’t be attempted by the novice driver as such long distances at night can take a toll on even the most experienced drivers. What more a novice one.

Thirty minutes into the journey and it starts to become obvious why driving into the sun is a bad idea. Driving at sunset poses some difficulties as the setting sun can cause quite a bit of glare on the driver. Seeing the time was close to seven in the evening, we pulled over at the next rest stop for a bit to let the sun dip below the horizon further before resuming.

Once on the highway, the length and breadth of the Golf R’s turbocharged 2.0-litre powerplant under the bonnet becomes obvious. It coped easily with the highway speed with plenty more beckoning your foot to antagonize it further.
