    Coach from Singapore

    by stappm Updated May 21, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Buses to and from Kuala Lumpur and Singapore are quite nice, some even have beverage service and movies on board! Not to mention you get to see the country side! 1-way 23 SGD to 45 SGD round trip verse $114 SGD 1-way flying.

    2 different people talked me out of flying and into a bus, as flying costs 4-5 x's as much, takes just as long with all the pre-board waiting and you don't get to see the country.

    Coaches depart frequently throughout the day and night. The trip is about 5 hours including 2 stops at immigration (SIN & Malaysia) and one 20-30 min. stop at a rest depot (food court and restrooms).

    Golden Mile Complex is where to go to find a bus in Singapore - when I went I wanted one departing that day and seat availability was limited..... so no movies or beverage service for me, but it was still comfy and nice.

    Taxi

    The Taxi drivers are real pain!.. They always give you a tough time and never agree on the first go to take you by the meter. They would rather not take a passenger, than go by the meter. So be sure you fix the price before you board the taxi, or inisit on going by the meter. If they refuse, take another taxi. Or best, take a taxi from the taxi stand. if you take a taxi from the taxi stand, they have to per force go by meter!!... Strange, but true!

    LRT or Monorail is the cheapest transportation in KL. You can get around the city's main areas for RM2.00 as maximum. Main stations are: KLCC, Jalan Bukit Bentang.
    It's tidy and clean and fine for misbehavior (throwing a cup...etc) is RM500.

    Right: LRT, monorail

    Malacca to KL to Malacca

    by diageva Written Oct 28, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    From the Bus station of Malacca we take a Bus to KL of 7.90 RM. The travel is nice, slow and very movie. You arrive to the very busy and dirty bus station of KL.
    Pros. I like traveling with local people and not in a tourist bus.

    AirAsia

    by chiabh Updated May 21, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Air Asia is a budget airline... It is to be noted that "budget" price air-ticket is only available when you book 2 or 3 months in advance.. and only on not so popular routes... The flight times are not so ideal and you may have to travel at rather odd hours of the day...and brace yourself for flight delays... Being a budget airline, no in-flight service is provided but you may purchase food and refreshments in-flight... The good thing is that these are reasonable priced...

    The airline flies not only domestic routes but regional routes as well...

    Booking is thru the internet and booking office at the airports... But beware, sometimes you may be charged for double for your flights (system glickes)... and it will take you months to get a refund (if you get it at all)...

    Golfers are also reminded that they have to pay RM25 for their golf bags, which are carried free by full-service airlines...

    Malaysia's flag carrier

    by asianbelle Updated Jun 16, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Inspite of the emergence of low fare, no frills airlines, I still prefer the major flag carrier - Malaysia Airlines.

    They serve hot, good-tasting food. I was also surprised that I was given a glass of orange juice soon after we were airborne. Normally, this practice is for first and business class passengers only and not for those in the economy class.

    Inner City Bus

    by l_joo Updated Mar 28, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Passengers must get ready coins before you get onto these buses. Normal rates around RM1 to take you anywhere in within the city. Very convenience, most buses are equipped with air-con. If you don't know what numbers of buses, you can simply look for a bus driver and you ask he/she which bus to take to which destination, they should be able to help tourists. If you don't want to ask, you still can look for the bus route map at where the bus stops. For further details of roads coverage, try the website below.

    Rent Cars

    Private cars are good though you have to pay endless tolls. Excuse me, I certainly understand each driver should help to pay highway maintenance but sometimes we hate to queue that long just to pay a Ringgit.

    Wanna rent a car, try some websites below:

    Buses to all destinations in Malaysia

    by Ines28 Written Sep 26, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Buses are in my opinion the best way to travel, they are inexpensive and comfortable, if you travel at night you will certainly have a nice bus with large seats.
    The Pudu Raya bus station is a great spot to continue your travels, it is extremely big and offers tickets for any destination on Peninsula Malaysia, Singapore and also Thailand. They are well-organised and the buses are - according to our experience - always in time.
    Some examples for travelling with Eltabina Ekspres:
    to Singapore: RM 25,00
    to Penang : RM 22,70
    to Ipoh : RM 11,25
