4 Facts on the High Speed Rail That Connects Singapore and Malaysia

Singapore and Malaysia is separated by slightly more than one kilometre based on the length of the Johor-Singapore Causeway which was opened in 1923. Besides the Causeway, citizens from both Malaysia and Singapore have many other travel options to visit their neighbouring country. But what is so special about relationship between these two countries?

Singapore was part of Malaysia for more than two years from 1963 to 1965. After the British exit its 144-year ruling of Singapore, the Federation of Malaysia was formed together with Singapore, North Borneo and Sarawak. However, racial tensions became a genuine problem in Singapore. Over the two year period, the problem intensified, and racial riots and curfews were common.

Moreover, the government of the Federation of Malaysia was concerned that as long as Singapore remained a part of the Federation, there would be differences in views on racial harmony. There was the general feeling that Malays and the indigenous population in the Federation will be undermined. On 7 August 1965, Singapore officially broke off from Malaysia.

Despite leaving the Federation, it does not affect relationships between the two countries. In fact, Malaysia is Singapore’s biggest trading partner in 2012. To deepen ties between the two countries, a second causeway between Singapore and Malaysia officially opened on 2 January 1998. Measuring 1,920 metres, the second causeway links the western part of Singapore at Tuas to the western part of the state of Johor at Gelang Patah.

In 2007, economic collaboration between Singapore and Malaysia moved a step closer with the establishment of the Malaysia-Singapore Joint Ministerial Committee for Iskandar Malaysia. Iskandar Malaysia refers to the extensive development of the southern Malaysia State of Johor. The development covers an area of 2,217 square kilometres which comprise the city of Johor Bahru, towns like Pontian, Senai and Pasir Gudang. On 19 February 2013, leaders from Singapore and Malaysia stuck a landmark agreement to build a High Speed Rail link between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore to further spearhead the development of Iskandar Malaysia.

Let’s take a look at four key facts of the upcoming High Speed Rail:

1) The entire length of the High Speed Rail is expected to measure 350 kilometres and will cut travelling time between Singapore to Kuala Lumpur to just 90 minutes.

2) There will be a total of 8 stations along the High Speed Rail with 7 stations in Malaysia and 1 station in Singapore. The stations in Malaysia are Kuala Lumpur. Putrajaya, Seremban, Ayer Keroh, Muar, Batu Pahat and Iskandar Puteri. The station in Singapore will be at Jurong East.

3) There will be 3 immigration facilities located at Kuala Lumpur, Iskandar Puteri and Sngapore Jurong East. International passengers travelling on the High Speed Rail will clear immigration of both countries once at the point of departure. This should ensure speedy travel procedure for travellers.

4) This is the 1st High Speed Rail in ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nation) and hopefully there will be more such projects linking travellers to other ASEAN countries.

The Highest and Most Beautiful Mountain in Bulgaria – Rila

The name Rila is originating from Thracian roots and is thought to signify “very well-watered mountain”, attributable to Rila’s vast quantity of glacial lakes (around 200) and hot springs at the base of the mountain. The Seven Rila Lakes are one of the most attractive sites all over the world and feature in UNESCO World Heritage. A portion of the Balkans’ longest and most profound rivers begin from Rila, including Maritsa, Mesta and Iskar.

The Rila Monastery is the most well-known monastery in Bulgaria and one of the most beautiful ones in the Balkans, with rich history behind it. It is generally considered that the monastery was established by the hermit St. Ivan of Rila, whose name it bears, amid the jurisdiction of Tsar Peter I (927-968). The recluse was known to live in a cave with no material belongings close to the religious community’s area, while the complex was built by his followers and students, who went to the mountains to receive their training.

As far back as its creation, the Rila Monastery has been bolstered and regarded by the Bulgarian emperors. Huge donations were made by each ruler of the Second Bulgarian Empire up until the Ottoman Conquest, making the Rila Monastery a social and holy centre of Bulgarian national consciousness that achieved its pinnacle from the twelfth to the fourteenth century.

The Rila Monastery was reconstructed at its present spot by Hrelyu, a primitive lord, in the early parts of the fourteenth century. The oldest structures in the mind-boggling date from this period – the Tower of Hrelja (1334-1335) and a little church just alongside it (1343). The religious bishop’s position of authority and the gold-engraved gates of the cloister are a timeless piece of history. Nonetheless, the invasion of the Ottomans toward the end of the fourteenth century was trailed by various assaults and a devastation of the religious community amidst the fifteenth century.

The 7 Rila Lakes are a group of glacial lakes, arranged in the northwestern Rila Mountains in Bulgaria. They are the most attractive location for tourists in whole of Bulgaria. Their altitude is between 2,100-2,500 metres above sea level.

Every lake has a name which categorizes it and fits it perfectly. The most astounding one is called Salzata (“The Tear”) because of the clarity of the water that permit visibility very deep inside it. The highest lake after Salzata is named Okoto (“The Eye”) after its flawlessly oval structure. Okoto is the most profound spherical lake in Bulgaria, with a depth of 37.5 metres. Babreka (“The Kidney”) is the lake that has the steepest shores of the rest of the lakes. Bliznaka (“The Twin”) is the biggest one by territory. Trilistnika (“The Trefoil”) has a sporadic shape and even shores. The least deep lake is Ribnoto Ezero (“The Fish Lake”) and the smallest one by territory and also at the lowest level is Dolnoto Ezero (“The Lower Lake”), where the waters that stream out of the rest of the lakes are accumulated to create the Dzherman River.

Rila mountain holds lots of other huts, natural beauties and amazing views from its peaks. It is good for skiing and snowboarding and definitely worth the tourist visit, as if you are travelling to Bulgaria and don’t go to Rila, you will be missing one of the top destinations in Bulgaria.
