    Elmo and our driver, Mr. G, were very good. It was a long day with us starting at 5am and finishing at 9pm. But we would highly recommend the effort. Malaysia was very interesting to see and we felt like we were able to see a number of the highlights. If you are in Singapore and are short on time, this trip is worth doing.
