Here's something different from the EU borders....

The Malaysia-Singapore border crossings. There are two crossings, 1st and the oldest is the Johor-Singapore Causeway which was built and completed in 1923 between the city of Johor Bahru in Malaysia and Woodlands in Singapore. The Malaysia-Singapore Second Link which is completed in 1998 serves Tanjung Kupang in Malaysia and Tuas in Singapore.





1) Johor-Singapore Causeway



This is a satellite imagery of the causeway and the Woodlands Checkpoint (Singapore) could be seen at the top left hand corner while the Gerbang Perdana Complex which houses the Malaysian Customs & Immigration checkpoint could be seen labelled as Bukit Chagar at the lower right hand corner.

I think the fuel tank capacity is the one, all Singaporean cars are subjected to have a 3/4 tank full when crossing the border. This is caused by Singaporeans who done a visa run to Malaysia just to have their car refueled there because of the high price difference between the two countries (In Malaysia .92 gas is only 0.6US$/l, while 1.6US$/l in Singapore/CMIIW), thus creating the 2 border crossings jammed by those people who maybe went abroad less than an hour

I presume $ 2.20 (Singaporese dollars) are considered quite high in southeast Asia, but it's not that expensive for a highly developed nation like Singapore (converted into euros it would be € 1.30 per liter, which is 30 - 50 cents lower than in most of western Europe).

Of course, gas being 2.10 Renggit in Malaysia (€ 0.48 per liter), you can easily save € 45 on a tank of gasoline.

Indeed Singapore has the highest price/litre than any of his neighbouring countries:

.92 Price by Sep-Oct

Singapore: S$ 2.10 (EUR 1.2)
Malaysia: RM 2.85 (EUR 0.6)
Thailand: THB 37 (EUR 0.8)
Indonesia: Rp9800 (EUR 0.6)

But, from the living cost in Singapore itself, the price is maybe still considerable. (Meh, if you have same such Singaporean price in Indonesia, a chaos is inevitable)

Some more picture of Sultan Abubakar CIQ from me in last year Christmas eve, god I passed Malaysian immigration for about 3 hours in the quite massive jam because of the Malaysian authority itself only put few counters open

And passed the control, the road is almost empty since everyone got stuck in the immigration process

There's a heavy fine and jail time for it. Remember its Singapore!

If I could recall corrrectly, I think it is SGD 5,000 or 1 year jail term for offenders.....
