    by gemi80 Written Jun 24, 2006

    Some suggest that u do book early for tickets(be it bus or train) from SING-KL-Sing during weekends because of the large number of ppl traveling during this time..i say, yeah that's right..but adding to that, PLEASE GET EARLY BOOKINGS NO MATTER WHAT THE DAY IS..we were confident not to get early bookings because we were traveling on WEEKday..but boy, it was fully booked too...better careful than sorry...we bought a SIng-KL ticket but were not able to get KL-SIng ticket so we just didnt push thru with our plans of going to KL..and the sad part is, tickets are NONREFUNDABLE..kiss $32 away.!ü learning experience, really...

    Luxury Coach to Kuala Lumpur

    by Durfun Updated Apr 19, 2006

    If you're considering going to Malaysia, think of taking the luxury coach to KL. It is truly luxurious, only 3 wide seats across, with an aisle down the middle, ie 2-1 format. Cost is 27 Singapore dollars.

    They recline a substantial amount & have great leg-rests.

    If there's no time pressures, leave around 1030-1100, so you'll cross over the bridge without any traffic. It's fun getting off, having your passport checked, then doing the same as soon as you cross over into Malaysia.

    The roads are great, so is the scenery. Most of the way you'll see massive cocoa palm plantations, the very product that has propelled the Malaysian economy into the fast-lane!!

  • Transnasional Bus to/from Malaysia

    by e_manuel_a Written Aug 29, 2005

    Comfortable and affordable buses are also available for Singapore trips to/from Malaysia. We rode a Transnasional bus to Kuala Lumpur from Lavender Bus Terminal in SG. It also serves other destination in Malaysia. The 5-hour trip cost SGD35. Bus driver is nice enough. To go to Lavender Bus Terminal, take Bus145.

    Coach

    by samantha_chee Written May 27, 2005

    There are plenty of coach operators providing KL-Singapore direct coach service. One important thing you need to make sure is that ONLY purchase bus tickets from the ticket counter, to eliminate problem e.g. fake tickets etc. Some reliable bus operator is including Nice / Plusliner.
    Passengers will depart from Puduraya station in Kuala Lumpur, (generally) arriving at Queen Street (Singapore).
    Travel Time: Approx. 5 hours
    Fare: RM 25 - RM 70 (business coach)

    It is obvious that travel time for bus is very much shorter than train. However, there are pros and cons for both of them. E.g. lights are all-time on for train's third class cabin (you might couldn't sleep well if you are not used to it). The choice is yours!

    Keretapi Tanah Melayu

    by samantha_chee Written May 27, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's a direct yet simple way to get to Singapore from Kuala Lumpur. Departing from station Sentral Kuala Lumpur, you could arrive straight at Tanjung Pagar Station (Singapore).
    Travel Time: about 6 - 9 hours.
    Fare: Ranging from as low as RM 19 up to RM 130.
    Train frequency: 3 trains per day, i.e. morning (Ekspres Sinaran, 0830-1459 hrs), afternoon (Ekspres Rakyat, 1425-2048 hrs) and night (Ekspres Senandung Malam, 2230-0745 hrs).

    The train will stops at Malaysian towns in between Sentral KL station and Tanjung Pagar station, e.g. Seremban, Bahau, Gemas, Johor Bahru etc. Malaysian immigration officers will check your passports onboard, i.e. passengers just need to stay on the train while immigration officers will "serve" you at your seat itself. However, passengers are required to go through Singaporean Customs (at Woodlands Checkpoint) as usual, upon check-into Singapore.
    Tips: If you are departing from Sentral Kuala Lumpur, you could purchase return ticket instead of one-way. This could save you 50 % off train ticket that you purchase at Singapore station. For example, you'll have to pay S$19 for a third class seat if you purchase ticket at Singapore. But it's RM 19 only for the same type of ticket! See the difference?

    Keretapi Tanah Melayu 1

    by wufei Updated Feb 20, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    KTM Berhad’s Intercity service is a must-try, especially for those who wants a safe, hassle-free and relaxed-and-easy mode of travel between cities or to remote areas.

    There are two Day Express trains namely Ekspres Sinaran and Ekspres Rakyat and four Night Express trains namely Senandung Malam, Senandung Langkawi, Ekspres Wau and Ekspres Timuran.

    These trains ply routes from Kuala Lumpur to Padang Besar, Singapore and also the East Coast up to Tumpat.

    ADNS - Air-conditioned Day/Night Second Class

    There are 40 sleeping berths in this coach, comprising 20 lower berths and 20 upper berths. For privacy, passengers can draw the curtains, which comes with each individual berth. There are two entrances into this coach, one a pneumatic door and the other a normal sliding door. Two separate washrooms for ladies/gents are located at one end of the coach.

    We choose the ADNS Upper Berth which cost us RM 37.50 per trip.

    The Bus

    by stappm Written Jan 27, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Buses to and from Kuala Lumpur are quite nice, some even have beverage service and movies on board! Not to metion 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 thruout 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.

    Transnasional Bus to Kuala Lumpur

    by backpackerbaby Written Apr 16, 2004

    Several buses a day, takes around 6 hours (not incl. traffic jam) to get to Puduraya Bus Station in KL, bus tic costs around 10S$ (forgot the exact price) 1 way, advisable to buy the return tic at the same time.

    IF POSSIBLE, call to reserve your bus tic!!! Originally, I planned to take a night bus but it's fully booked already......

    Singapore KL Express Buses

    by Jmill42 Written Mar 22, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Most buses from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur leave from the Lavender Street Bus Terminal near the MRT station of the same name. There are many bus companies that make this trek and about 5 of them are based at this station. Your basic air-conditioned fare will run about S$25-30. The journey take about 6 hours and there is a normally scheduled stop about 3 hours into it. The buses here for the two trips I took were of decent condition, excluding a broken bus that was exchanged later in the trip.

    Major companies include:

    Transnational Sdn. Bhd. 03-2947034

    Plus Liner Sdn. Bhd. 02-62565755

    Supercoach Sdn. Bhd. 02-62947711

    Normal departure times:

    8.00 am
    9.00 am
    4.30 pm
    6.00 pm

    Obviously, these schedules and prices can change, so check as early as possible.

    I'm here to recommend Billion Stars Express. The best coach I travelled from Penang to Singapore with the cheapest price in market with moderate service provided.
    The seat provided was comfortable enough with WiFi service and a plug for charger of laptop or phone. I enjoyed surfing internet all the way to Singapore. However, there's bad connection occur in certain area of highway but this is acceptable. The service provided is over worth with the price ticket sold. I have recommended your company to others because of our satisfaction with your service. I look forward to doing business with you for years to come.
