Doing The Hentian Hop:
Is it that time of the year again? A relative or a friend asked if you can drop her at Hentian Putra for the balik kampung journey by bus. You go like "Hentian What?". Well, fear not. In this latest episode, we take you on a Hentian Hop to the far-flung city bus stations. The journey begins at the aging Puduraya Terminal, infested with rats, taxi touts and pirate buses. The video winds its way through Jalan Tun Perak and Jalan Raja Laut to Jalan Putra where The Mall is. We swing by Hentian Putra near PWTC and proceed via Jalan Kuching to the god-forsaken Hentian Duta. The person who approved locating a bus terminal in such a relatively remote place ought to be chained to the exhaust fume-filled boarding steps of Puduraya for life. Even the seasonal, half-hearted Bukit Jalil bus terminal is situated across an LRT station.

Warning: You may be interested to know that the entrance to Hentian Putra is a Money Trap. Once you enter the road you can only exit via the car park even if you don't intend to park. Is RM 3 just to drop off a passenger with heavy luggage. The Hentian Duta is just as mercenary. No 10 or 15 minutes grace for someone dropping or picking up an elderly passenger at the doorsteps. You enter for 10 seconds, you pay RM 1!

Puduraya is officially for southbound, Singapore, northbound, Thailand, Genting Highlands taxis and anywhere else. In Malaysia, anything goes. During the festive rush, the terminal is transferred to a car park in Bukit Jalil (video coming soon). Hentian Putra (Stesen Bas Putra) is officially for buses plying the East Coast states like Terengganu, Kelantan. Hentian Duta is supposedly for northbound buses.

If you are not interested in any of the torture stations, this video is great for armchair sight-seeing. On the morning it was filmed, Kuala Lumpur's sky was a in rare, deep turquoise shade.
