Trip to Singapore and KL

Bus or Train?
We're going to KL from Singapore this coming April. Is it better if we take the bus or train? Which bus companies do you recommend?

KL hostels/hotels
We'll be staying in KL for a night or two. What are the cheap yet clean hostels/hotels there? Four of us will be going.

Thanks a lot!

From Singapore to KL, you can take a bus. The bus ride is about +-5hours. There are a few bus companies that have very comfortable buses that ply the SIN-KL or KL-SIN route. You can try the following:

Aeroline at

There are also some cheaper bus companies that operate from Beach Road. However, I do not have the information about them.

We found that it was cheaper to go over the border into Johor Bahru and buy your onward bus ticket from there.

Good luck :)

I'm also planning to go from Singapore to KL this April. I have booked a train ticket (Ekspress Rakyat) from The ticket cost RM34 for a superior seat and 7 hours journey. I hope the trip worth the long hours.
