I need help. I'm travelling to Singapore with my husband and we decided to go to Kuala Lumpur ( to see the Petronas Twin Towers) as well. We already bought ticket to Singapore and I need to find out the fastest and cheapest way to KL. We were thinking of taking a bus to Johor Bahru and taking a plane from Johot Bahru to KL. I need to get info re buses to Johor Bahru,( schedule, price and where to ride). Please consider that I haven't been to Singapore so I am clueless. I wanna know where to take the bus and how much it would cost. Since we're going to the Night Safari on our first night in SIN then plan to go to KL early the next day, I'm also looking for a cheap but decent hotel/hostel near the bus station where we should be riding to JOhor Bahru.

Any helpful information would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

You can get a bus from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur, its only about 7 hours and the buses are a really good standard.

Greeting. There are many ways you want to travel from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur. From SIngapore U can go to Kuala Lumpur by:

1) By train ( plz visit www.ktmb.com.my for further information)
2) Bus many bus operators such as www.plusliner.com in Singapore
or in Larkin, Johor Malaysia
3) By flight www.mas.com.my or
http://www.airasia.com/site/en/home.jsp U can only take this
flight for Senai Airport (Johor) to Kuala Lumpur

Flight is less than an hour. From the airport ( Kuala Lumpur has 2 airports), U can take taxi to Kuala Lumpur (it's quite expensive for me) or direct bus the cheapest way to Kuala Lumpur (prefer U drop at KL Central because it's easier for to to go anywhere in KL or Selangor and most Light Train operators stops at KL Central) Bus fares from both airports is only MYR10. But both taxi and bus takes more than an hour due to massive traffic jams. U also can take KL CITY AIR TERMINAL (KL CAT) http://www.kliaekspres.com/index3_klia_ekspres.html It cost U Malaysia Ringgit MYR35 per person. It's the fastest way to KL only 30 minutes journey

1: Kuala Lumpur International Airport http://www.klia.com.my
(KLIA) if U take MAS or other International Flights
2: Low Cost Carrier Terminal (http://lcct.airasia.com) (LCCT) only
if U take airasia flight

If U want to visit Kuala Lumpur Twin Tower (KLCC), the cheapest way to there is u travel by Light Rail Transit System from PUTRA LRT http://www.putralrt.com.my. Taxi is very expensive and most driver don't want to use meter. There are a lot of cheap hotel/hostel in KL. For example oppersite Puduraya. Anyway if U don't know KL area, U can contact me anytime for information. Maybe I can help to guide U the cheapest way.

Flying from Johor is not going to be much faster.

2 hours to get to Johor - Skudai, 1 hout before flight, 50 minutes flight, 1 hour from KLIA to town. That makes allready 5 hours.

The most of the Buses from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur only needs 5 - 6 hours.

Buses from Singapore: Beach Road - Golden Mile

I would recommend Sri Maju. Especially for the trip from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore. They have a own Platform in Kuala Lumpur Pudu Raya Bus Terminal. So no hazzle to search for the Bus anywhere.

Buses from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur are about SGD 25. From Kuala Lumpur to Singapore 30 RM (The half) so don't bother getting a return Busticket in Singapore.

That's the cheapest way.

The fastes way would be a flight from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur.

JUST DROP EVERYTHING AND FORGET THE HASSLE...
I went to KL from Singapore with a really luxury bus from www.aeroline.com.sg and it took me only 5 hours. You buy the ticket online, the terminal is easy to reach, it's at Harbour Front in Singapore, and it'll get you straight to Corus Hotel right across the street from KLCC (Petronas Twin Towers). It cost me only US$30 (S$47). Really cheap, just sit, and you'll get there! Meals, drinks, double deck bus, with TV, lounge area downstairs, it's luxury! I flew once from Singapore, I have to get to Changi 2 hours before, wait for the plane, 1 hour flight to KL, and another 1,5 to 2 hours drive from KL airport to the city center! So it's the same 5 hours spent as if I took the bus!
