Doing a months trip to Thailand/Malaysia/Singapore in april.
Was looking at getting the train or bus from Kualar Lumpar to Singapore!! Did a google search for it and theres loads of different sites for it and im getting confused from it all haha!!
Anyone able to recommend one good site for info on the train! And should I book the train/bus in advance?
I got the bus from kuala lumpur to singapore and it does initially sound pretty confusing as the bus station is mayhem....i wouldnt know about the train im afraid.
If you just go to the big bus station near chinatown you will see a fair few luxurious looking buses parked along the street with blokes outside them selling tickets to all over the place. All i did was ask one of these blokes where the buses to singapore went from and it turned out half of them were! They will point you in the right direction.
With regards to booking, i dont know if you can.....and i dont think it is a problem as it was just first come first served when i was there and they dont even wait for the bus to fill up......must be pressure from the singapore end to run on time i guess.
The vast majority of these buses are much better than you would get back in the Uk as well. They only have three seats to a row and about ten rows in total so you get massive arm rests, lots of leg room and you can recline to almost lying down....happy days!
Hope this helps
We had taken the train from KL Sentral to Singapore.
The tickets were quite cheap and the train was ok.
Btw the upper berths were cheaper than the lower berths!!!
It was an overnight train.
We had booked the train tickets the previous day at the KL Sentral station itself.
(seems like the website is down at present!)
