Singapore is just about the most expensive city in Asia. Malaysia is a little cheaper. Thailand is cheaper too. There is bus and train transportation between Singapore and KL. What is your price range for a hotel in Singapore? (Penang is cheaper than KL. KL is cheaper than Singapore.)

Once I used a train from Butterworth (Penang) to Singapore leaving around 7 a.m. and got to Singapore around 8 p.m. Seat 61 has more up to date info.

When you do a forum search you will get some additional information.

Sometimes a simple Google search can be helpful for things to see and do and for how to get from one place to another type questions. You still have to verify the accuracy of any Google checks.

Hi karazyal! Yea when i tried to compute for a budget for SG! I was suprised. Anyway im just planning for univ stuido sentosa, silioso beach, thats the main thing. For malaysia, i dont have idea what to there aside from legoland.

Wait. It takes a day to travel penang to SG?

Id love asking people from sites like this, at least i can meet new people and get accurate info based from their trip too. Well google sometimes, advertise only which is the most and popular. Lol

Yeah unless you fly.

Departure and arrival times on this link:

(Bus rides are a little faster.)

For flying in Malaysia - Singapore check Air Asia. (✔✔ But check weight limits for bags!)

I think you will be all worn out! Google up bus travel Malaysia, etc. Check times and fares.

Spending a night in Penang will give you a much cheaper hotel than staying in Singapore.

Your choice.

I think so too,. But im after with universal studio. And sentosa's activities. Also the siloso beach. Though i wanted to be a cheap trip but i doubt it will be in singapore :(
By the way karazyal, where you from? Malaysia?

Hi - A Google search for 'bus from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur' gave me this as the first suggestion which looks like it will answer your question.
