Myself and my mate have planned our trip that leaves us arriving in KL on the 5th of May and leaving Sinapore on the 10th of May.

So we have 2 day in one place and 3 in another. Which way round would you recommend, plan on doing the over night traing from KL to Singapore.

We booked with STA travel so maybe we could put back out flight a day for free I'm not sure.

The train is notoriously slow between KL and Sing. Buses will offer a faster option. It will take about 6 hours. However, if you can sleep well on the train, you may indeed save your daytime.

You will probably prefer KL, as Singapore is a very modern city-island-country. But both have their beauty.

Have a nice trip!

Singapore has an awe inspiring number of things to do. And because of the size of the country, you can choose hotels in Singapore without restricting yourself to a particular area.

IMHO. Better to take a bus, it's about 6 hours depending on border check as well. The bus is so convenient and you can choose the luxurious one if you want!

I'd say 3 days for Malaysia (KL & Melacca) & 2 days for Singapore.

Have a safe journey!

Thanks for the replys, I just thought the train would be easier as I would just sleep on the way down.

Probably looking to do the Zoo and Sentosa in Singapore, and Petronas in KL.
