edonite has indicated that this thread is about Singapore

Hi all,

My friends and I are planning for a trip from Singapore to Malaysia then Thailand then Cambodia then Vietnam and lastly a plane back to Singapore.

We are going on budget and prefer not taking the plane. However, we are not sure of the train services to use. Thus, we would require travelling advises like which route to take, what train/bus to take.

Tentatively, heres my plan .

Singapore to Kuala Lumpur (Settled - Train)
Kuala Lumpur to Terengganu (Need Help)
Terengganu to Bangkok (Need Help)
Bangkok to Siem Reap (Need help)
Siem Reap to Phnom Penh (Need Help)
Phnom Penh to Ho Chi Minh City (Need Help)
Ho Chi Minh City to Singapore (Settled - Plane)

I'm hoping for travelling routes with details such as which train station to which train station, estimated cost and travelling time.

Websites or forums would help too!

Thanks =)

We are going on budget and prefer not taking the plane. However, we are not sure of the train services to use. Thus, we would require travelling advises like which route to take, what train/bus to take.

Singapore to Kuala Lumpur (Settled - Train) -- should be ok..

Kuala Lumpur to Terengganu (Need Help) -- you can get a regular coach, hire a cab or last resort take a flight (I recall only Thu has a flight)

Terengganu to Bangkok (Need Help) - this is a tricky part -- you may have to take a flight from KL .. or you go from Terenggnau to Narathiwat on the Thai side. And from there move to BKK by bus.
( I dont recall they have an airport, as the last time, I flew from KL to Terengganu and from there by car to Narathiwat. But that was in early 90s. Maybe there is an airport by now. )

Bangkok to Siem Reap (Need help) - Got train to do that... Within Cambodia, you need a local guide or something? If so pls email me and I will give you contact for a travel agency there.. they speak English. You can deal directly with them.

Siem Reap to Phnom Penh (Need Help)
Phnom Penh to Ho Chi Minh City (Need Help)

--- for these two stops, I think the travel agency can do same for you.. free and easy guide...

Ho Chi Minh City to Singapore (Settled - Plane)

I'm hoping for travelling routes with details such as which train station to which train station, estimated cost and travelling time.
-- ASEAN is not like Europe... Most info are NOT on the web.. and if they were, then probably in their own native language... Having a local tour guide is best...
