Getting from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur

Getting from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur (KL)
The quickest and the fastest way to get to Kuala Lumpur (KL) from Singapore is by air. There are many flights per day from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur, and air fares are often as affordable as bus fares.

Do also note the transfer time getting to and from Singapore and Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).

Train from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur

Travellers who dislike flying may consider taking the train from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur. Enjoy the beautiful scenery and the authentic villages on route, or get a nice sleep when you take the overnight train. The train is clean, depending on your standard of clean actually, in good condition, provides good service, and has decent food. It is comfortable, and is probably the safest but the slowest way to get from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur. Trains from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur leaves three times a day. If you want to travel during the day, there are two trips you can catch, and there’s one night train. The day train takes about 6 hours, or probably more, while the night train takes about 8 hours. And so you don’t start your trip with frustration, it helps to expect some delays. When you choose the night train, you might want to buy the sleeper ticket so you can just sleep the trip away. However, taking the night train makes you miss all the beautiful sceneries on route. If you want to enjoy the scenery of the countryside, it is recommended that you choose the day train.

Bus from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur

If the train is too slow for you, the Singapore to Kuala Lumpur bus may be your choice of ride. Traveling time takes about 5-6 hours to reach, depending on traffic conditions and immigration. A few of the bus services offer online bookings but if you want to ensure reservation, you can visit Golden Mile Complex where most bus operators depart. There is no centralized bus station in Singapore, and buses going to Kuala Lumpur leaves from various places around the island. If you decide to take the bus, it is best to book in advance, especially on weekends and public holidays.

Taxi from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur

Many people ask if it is wise to take a taxi from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur. A metered taxi trip to KL is going to be expensive compared to the other modes of transportation. But if money is not an issue, you can take a taxi from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur. You can also have the driver as your tourist guide by asking him questions about the country while you rest and enjoy your trip, that is, if you can forget that the meter is running. Do take note that only taxis with special licenses can operate across the borders of Singapore and Malaysia. Singaporean taxis are only allowed to drop you off at Johor Bahru Taxi Terminal at Pasar Bakti Kotaraya. From there, you can take another taxi to take you to the airport, or to the train station, or directly to Kuala Lumpur. The advantage of taking a taxi to Johor Bahru is that custom checks become more convenient. You can stay in the car, while the taxi driver takes charge of everything. It’s much easier than when taking the bus because you have to get out of the bus, go through the customs check, and back in the bus. So, again, if money is not an issue, a taxi ride may be a good consideration.

Private Limos from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur

Private hired limousines, coach buses, chauffeur driven vehicles, private limousine services such as MPVs are arranged with private companies on the basis of per transfer or per trip, charter or hourly disposal service for a few hours to half-day or full-day services.
