Hi everyone. Maybe you can help me out on this. I'll be on a trip going to Singapore this April and my companion wants me to have an itinerary including going to Malaysia. But were just staying Singapore for 3 days, 2 nights. What can you recommend? How far is Malaysia from Singapore? How can we go there? Is it via Plane, bus or etc. Sorry if I have too many questions. I just hope you could give me some idea.

aba :(

Malaysia borders Singapore, and their are a number of bus services that will take you into Malaysia from there. If time is such a factor though, I would suggest a flight, flights between the two places tend to be very cheap. I would suggest going to Penang in Malaysia if you are flying...
or Langkawi if you like the beach. I would suggest going to Melaka if you are taking a bus as it is fairly close to Sing.

hello, thanks for your help. may i ask if it's worth to go there just for 1 day? it's my second time to singapore and yet we didn't have the time to visit malaysia. my boss wants me to have an itinerary going there. but don't have any idea how. if will take bus, how long is the travel time and what can we do once we are there which is good day trip only and then go back to singapore on the same date.

i hope you could give me some tips.

For one day trip, I would suggest to go Malacca, the historical state in Malaysia. You can find many info about Malacca from the net. Travel from Singapore to Malacca take you abt 3 hours. My suggestion is, cross the border by taxi to Johor Bahru (JB), go to the JB taxi station, charter the cab for a day trip to Malacca. What is your budget for one day trip? For how many persons?

Agree with what hielmann suggested. You can also take a coach from
Singapore to Malacca instead. as there is a short tour trip to
Malacca from Singapore.

I can suggest you to take a bus from Golden Mile in Singapore then
board a short tour trip to Malacca with tour guide.
