Transport from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur

by Chumate

What are the means of transportation going from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur? What is the cheapest of them all but also a convenient one to take?

Hi Chumate

Transport from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur includes flights, buses and trains.

Flights from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur

Budget airlines serving the Singapore-Kuala Lumpur route include: Air Asia, Jetstar and Tiger Airways. Full-service airlines flying Singapore-KL include SIA and MAS.

On a good day, a discounted one-way ticket for Singapore-Kuala Lumpur on a budget airline may go as low as S$60+.

Buses from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur

A variety of buses (normal, VIP, Super VIP) leave from Golden Mile Complex on Beach Road Singapore for Kuala Lumpur.

There are many scheduled departures throughout the day. If you can sleep on a night bus, you may want to consider taking the night bus to KL, which usually leaves around 9-10pm.

A one-way ticket is likely to cost about $40-60, except during the eve of a holiday - when it increases by 20-30%.

A cheaper bus option is to take one of the Singapore-Johor buses from the Queen Street Bus Station to Larkin Bus Station in Johor Bahru. From Larkin, there are also several bus runs to Kuala Lumpur throughout the day. It's cheaper because the fares at Larkin are in Malaysian dollars.

Trains from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur

There are also trains leaving Tanjong Pagar Train Station in Singapore for numerous places in Malaysia, including Kuala Lumpur. It is not my preferred choice, but there are some interesting views at a few places along the way.

Kuala Lumpur Bus Stop
by: Chumate

Thanks to all your response.

Actually I'm a little confused as to which destination in Kuala Lumpur to get off if a take a land transportation. I'm only staying overnight in Kuala Lumpur and no idea where to alight from the bus.

Preferred to stay in the heart of the city particularly near Petronas Twin Towers because I love to see this one.

Thanks so much! Hope you can help me...

Singapore-KL Buses Stop
at Puduraya Station and Hotels

by: Gabriel Tan

Hi Chumate

The majority of Singapore-Kuala Lumpur buses terminate at the Puduraya Bus Station in KL's Chinatown.

I believe the Puduraya Bus Station is currently under renovation. So the buses terminate at a temporary bus station in Bukit Jalil, where passengers may take a shuttle back to Puduraya.

There are also buses that terminate at hotels in Kuala Lumpur. These are usually run by companies which have some kind of tie-ups with the hotels there.

Before you book your tickets, ask about the bus' final destination. Choose one that stops near your hotel.
