Hi

Our family ( myself 33, husband 34, and my daughter 5 yrs) are planning a Singapore - Malaysia tour for 10 days i.e arriving on 24th May 10 departure 4th June 10).

We want to cover max singapore in 3-4 days as well as Malaysia (Penang, Genting Highlands, Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi). Kindly suggest how to travel on economical basis + some good resonable hotels in 1)Singapore 2) Kuala Lumpur 3)Langkawi.

Also please suggest sleeper train to save on hotel for 1-2 nights.

Again I would like to mention that we have a flight on 4th June morning from Singapore to India.

Kindly suggest. Waiting for your response.

Hi Smita


SCHEDULING AND FOCUS OF SINGAPORE-MALAYSIA TOUR

3-4 days in Singapore sound a comfortable duration to see the main sights.

However, trying to pack Kuala Lumpur, Genting Highlands, Penang and Langkawi in 6 days is simply too ambitious. You end up with a lot of travelling and little time to see each place properly.

For something slightly different from Singapore, I recommend that you spend the Malaysian leg of your vacation in Penang and Langkawi.

Your can spend 3 nights in Singapore (24-27 May) and then on the 4th night (27 May) take a night bus from Beach Road in Singapore and arrive in Penang on the morning of Day 5 (28 May).

You might want to check out these 2 bus companies' websites for Singapore-Penang-Singapore overnight bus fares:

a) Grassland Express & Tours

b) Konsortium Express & Tours

After that

a) spend 3 nights in Penang,

b) take a ferry ride to Langkawi Island,

c) spend another 2 nights in Langkawi,

d) take an afternoon ferry back to Penang on 2 June,

e) catch the overnight bus back to Singapore on the night of 2 June,

f) and spend the night of 3 June in Singapore.


RECOMMENDED HOTELS IN SINGAPORE & MALAYSIA

a) Recommended cheap hotels in Singapore

b) Recommended 4-star hotels in Singapore city

c) Recommended hotels in Penang:

- Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion (Boutique Hotel)

- Tune Hotel Downtown Penang (Budget Hotel)

d) Recommended hotel in Langkawi

- Lagoon Resort Langkawi

Have a good Singapore + Malaysia vacation.
