Hey,

I'll be in Singapore heading to Thailand overland. Any advice from the experts? Should I get that train? Where do I get it from in Singapore?

Cheers

Helen

Helen,
I have only taken the overnight bus to Hat Yai from Singapore. That was a pretty easy way to make the journey. Now with the discount airlines, it is just as cheap to fly to BKK or Phuket. Look at Air Asia and Jet Star Asia. I will let others give advice on train travel.

Hi,
I would take the train - Malaysian trains are nice and easy to book and cheap if you go 2nd class. Book your train just inside the border of Malaysia at Johor Bahru as it is cheaper than booking in Singapore. Easy to get from Sing to the border via bus, don't recall exactly where but just ask someone when you are there where the bus station is.

You might not be able to get a through train from Malaysia to Thailand, but you can check their website for info: http://www.ktmb.com.my/

They say you can book online and pay via credit card.

Good luck,
Martha

Hi all,

I don really recommend taking a train from Singapore as it will be very long hours. And i mean really long hours as compared to taking an express bus. You may take a Transnational Bus Service which is from Golden Mile Complex at Beach Rd and they got express buses to Thailand every day. Not too sure about the cost but I'm sure it is more rewarding and more convenient and much faster than taking a train.

Thanks and Regards
Anuar

If you look around on the internet it can be really cheap to fly from Singapore to Bangkok, and it saves you heaps of time. Air Asia or Tiger Airlines, and theres a few others!

I got a flight for about 90 singapore dollars including tax, which is about 30 pounds.
