How to get to Kuala Lumpur from Singapore

What about

It is hard not to fall in love with the capital of Malaysia: one of the youngest capitals of Southeast Asia wins hearts with its bold youthful and cosmopolitan character. The rich colonial heritage coexists in harmony with state-of-the art skyscrapers, lush parks are a welcome oasis of tranquillity to escape to after the world-class shopping marathons, and ethnic dishes of Chinese, Indian, Muslim and Western cuisine make your mouth water. The Petronas Towers, the highest twin towers in the world, rise proudly in the heart of the capital, commanding views over the modern bustling city.

How to get from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore

The route between the two cities is well travelled. Buses and trains whisk passengers from Malaysia to Singapore and vice versa any time of the day and night. While travelling by train is an experience in itself, some buses provide you with all the possible modern comforts and the travel time is considerably less.

From Singapore to Kuala Lumpur by bus

It is an easy five-hour bus travel from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur. Travel time is highly dependent on how long your border formalities take; but in general the whole trip should not last more than six hours.

There are a number of bus operators serving the route between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur with buses departing from different locations in the city throughout the day. The most popular pick-up point in Singapore is Golden Mile Tower in Beach Road, northeast from the city centre, where many transport companies have set their offices. The nearest MRT station is Nicoll Highway (exit A), from where it is just a four-minute walk to the Golden Mile Tower. Bus 100 brings you even closer – it stops within just a couple of minutes walk from the GMT.

Transtar Travel and Billion Stars Express both operate buses from Golden Mile Tower. Transtar Travel brings their passengers to TBS in Kuala Lumpur, and Billion Stars Express offers additionally two other stops: Berjaya Times Square, close to the very popular Jalan Bukit Bintang, filled with hotels of different price-ranges, and One Utama, in Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

Transtar Travel has five buses a day (7.30am, 10am, 2.30pm, 7pm and 10.45pm) and sells tickets at a considerably higher price than other companies do – SGD53/MYR156 – but there is a good reason for that. The company offers first-class service with single seats on the both sides of the aisle, all of them equipped with foot rest and personal entertainment system; food and drinks are served on board, too. In general, if you can afford it, it is a great investment to make your journey from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur as comfortable as possible.

The only bus of Billion Stars Express departs at 10.15pm and calls to TBS in Kuala Lumpur first, proceeding to Berjaya Times Square, to the east of KLCC, and One Utama. The price of the tickets depends on your destination and varies from SGD17 to SGD35 (MYR50-MYR100).

Tip: Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS) is the main transportation terminal in the southern part of Kuala Lumpur. There are information kiosks and counters to help you find your way around Kuala Lumpur, free Wi-Fi at Level 4, ATMs, convenience stores and a large food court at the terminal. The most convenient way to reach the city centre from the bus terminal is to get to Level 3 and walk over the link bridge to the main lobby of TBS-BTS (Bandar Tasik Selatan), from where KLIA transit, LRT and KTM Komuter bring passengers to the city.

Another popular starting point for the buses to Kuala Lumpur in Singapore is Concorde Shopping Centre. It is located in 317 Outram Road, west from the city centre and about 3 km from Orchard Road. Buses of Golden Coach Express depart from their office at Concorde Shopping Centre from 8.30am till 2pm hourly or half-hourly; there is also a night bus at 11.59pm. In Kuala Lumpur, Golden Coach Express buses head to Berjaya Times Squre and Pudu Raya, east of KLCC; tickets cost SGD25/MYR74.

Though coaches of Billion Stars Express and Golden Coach Express are not as luxurious as those of Transtar Travel, they are still of quite a high standard with just three seats in a row instead of usual four. That means more space and higher level of comfort for passengers. All buses serve snacks and beverages, offer some kind of an entertainment program and make at least one toilet stop en route apart from the stops at the border.

Tip: All the afternoon buses bring you to Kuala Lumpur by the time it gets dark. All evening buses arrive between midnight and 4am. Whichever of these buses you choose, it is a good idea to book your accommodation in Kuala Lumpur in advance and, in case of late arrival, inform your hotel or guesthouse accordingly. If you prefer to shop for the place to stay on the spot, opt for any of the morning buses or – even better – for the midnight Golden Coach Express which delivers you to the Malaysian capital early in the morning, emmmm, fresh and shining bright.

Crossing the border to Malaysia

Normally it is easier to cross the border in the direction of Malaysia than vice versa. There is much less hassle with border formalities in Singapore when you are leaving the country. Malaysian immigration office is organized better than their Singaporean counterparts, so expect to spend minimum of time on the border crossing.

Note: At the moment, many nationalities are granted 90 or 30 days visa-free permit to stay in Malaysia; but it always pays to check in advance.

From Singapore to Kuala Lumpur by train

From May, 2016, there is no more direct train service between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. You can no longer take the convenient #24 train which used to leave Singapore at 10.30pm arriving to Kuala Lumpur the next morning before 8am. Your train journey will involve three separate trains: from Woodland checkpoint in Singapore to Johor Bahru Sentral in Malaysia (20 minutes); a shuttle train from Johor Bahru to Gemas (4 hours 20 minutes); and finally from Gemas to Kuala Lumpur Sentral (two hours 20 minutes). The last leg is served by high-speed ETS trains. Taking into consideration all the waiting time, your train journey from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur will take about nine hours which is actually twice as slow as any bus ride between the two cities. It is though considerably cheaper to travel by train: all the three tickets should not cost you more than MYR70 while the majority (not all!) of bus operators sell their tickets a higher price (MYR90 and up).

Activities

With an endless list of museums, churches, mosques and temples, historical buildings, shopping opportunities and natural attractions in and around the Malaysian capital, the time spent in Kuala Lumpur is never enough. You can make your visit as diverse and busy as you wish but by all means try to find some time for a very special experience which visiting of any of the following places can enrich you with:

  1. Petronas Twin Towers are easily a whole-day destination. From getting up to the Skybridge on the 41st-42nd level and to meditating to the intricate dance of the fountains at the foot of the towers after dark, you will hardly find a moment for boredom.

  2. Menara Kuala Lumpur may seem just a humble relative of its more famous counterparts elsewhere but it definitely offers the best view of the city with Petronas Twin Towers right in front of you. The revolving restaurant is a great place for an elegant lunch or diner, too.

  3. Kuala Lumpur boasts many green areas and zoos, but Kuala Lumpur Bird Park located in the scenic Lake Gardens is an absolute stunner, especially if travelling with your little ones in tow. The natural aviary with freely flying birds transports you right in the heart of a rain forest.

  4. Batu Caves with the iconic image of Lord Murugan look cheerful and colourful from outside with all those Hundu deities meeting visitors at the entrance gates just at the foot of the stairs, but the system of million-years caverns at the top does impress even more.

  5. Central Market is every shopping lover’s start destination which combines food venues, shops, entertainment programs all under the same roof of an amazing art deco masterpiece. Central Market gives you a real taste of KL shopping which goes far beyond the exquisite boutiques of Suria KLCC next to Petronas towers.

Your onward travel from Kuala Lumpur

Venturing further north from Kuala Lumpur, popular destinations which can be reached overland from the Malaysian capital, include Penang and the southern Thai city of Hat Yai where you can catch a train heading to Bangkok.

Passenger reviews out of total 2,591 passengers traveled with us on this route

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that though we are closely monitoring services, we are still an agency marketplace - meaning we focus on ticketing service and route availability / coverage rather than on factual seat recline angle you got today ^_^

★★☆☆☆ Sep 11, 2017 (train #70 Shuttle, KTM) :
We caught the 08:00 which left at 08:25 which is apparently quite normal. Important if you have a connection though. Train was pretty dirty for the first train of the day.

★★★★★ Jul 10, 2017 (bus VIP24, Transtar Express (Solitaire)) :
Very nice seats, lots of space.
★★★★★ Jul 9, 2017 (bus VIP24, Transtar Express (Solitaire)) :
It was perfect! Nice staff und cozy seats!
★★★★☆ Jun 25, 2017 (bus VIP, Transtar Express (SVIP)) :
The review by Jenelle below says it all. The bus arrived a few hours late, however the price and comfort of the journey were fantastic.
★★★★☆ Jun 19, 2017 (bus VIP, Transtar Express (SVIP)) :
Only 4* because we did not leave on time. Left 20minutes late and arrived KL 2 hours later than the scheduled arrival. However the bus itself is so comfortable! Seats recline far back and legs can be slightly elevated. Plenty of leg room! Note if you are taking the bus, the immigration might make your journey longer. Departure from SG was a breeze using biometric passports however this is not the case when entering Malaysia. The queues are absolute CHAOS! people tired, hot, sticky and pushing in the line so took us a good hour just to get through. But for the price we paid this is not bad at all!
★★★★☆ Jun 9, 2017 (bus VIP, Seasons Express)
★★★★★ Jun 7, 2017 (bus VIP, Transtar Express (SVIP)) :
Very safe trip. Was able to sleep comfortably. Guide was very helpful in immigration
★★☆☆☆ Jun 3, 2017 (bus VIP, Seasons Express) :
Terrible trip, we arrived at 4:30 am instead of midnight. This was due to traffic jams and customs queuing also because the driver was slow driving, he was more interested in his stupid mobile phone than anything else. I'll never get on Seasons Bus again.
★★★★★ Jun 2, 2017 (bus VIP, Transtar Express (SVIP)) :
The bus ride took about 6.5 hours, but it was smooth. We had to stop for Singaporean customs then Malaysian customs then again for a food stop . The ride was VERY COMFORTABLE.
★★☆☆☆ May 24, 2017 (bus VIP, Transtar Express (SVIP)) :
Comfortable seats, but awful communication and incredibly rude staff
★★★★★ May 11, 2017 (bus VIP, Seasons Express) :
Easy enough to find. The bus left a little late passed it 2345h schedule but other than that it was a comfortable ride. The driver was friendly and helpful despite the language barrier which, for me, is not an issue since I don't expect everyone to speak English when I travel abroad. The chairs were far more comfortable than the ones you get on an economy flight.
★★★★☆ May 8, 2017 (bus VIP, Seasons Express) :
Air condition too cold

★★★★★ Apr 16, 2017 (bus VIP, Transtar Express (SVIP))
★★★★☆ Apr 11, 2017 (bus VIP, Transtar Express (Premium)) :
Bus left on time. Bus was clean and seats were comfortable with ample legroom. Border crossing was the smoothest business. Drivers weren't at all friendly, but ladies at the check in counter were pleasant enough. Research you passport visa requirements because Transtar staff aren't always clued up on which nationalities don't require a visa to enter Malaysia (i.e. Zimbabwe), so they freaked us out by saying we'd get stuck at the border. A quick call to our home embassy settled matters. Bus arrived in KL ahead of schedule and made a convenient stop round the corner from our hotel in Bintang Bukit. Would definitely use this bus service again, but leave on a morning bus so as to see the countryside.
★★★☆☆ Apr 2, 2017 (bus VIP, Transtar Express (Premium)) :
It was good and clean. Until halfway there was a flat tire and the transferred bus was very sub par with the initial bus. It was smelly and old but the conductor of that bus helped us with our luggage. I hope next time they check first before heading out because it left 5 mins before departure time schedule.
★★★★☆ Mar 18, 2017 (bus VIP, Transtar Express (Premium)) :
Good trip overall. Capable drivers, good value for money. Only suggestions would be a toilet on board and also Wi-Fi for passengers to use. Would use the service again, maybe first class coach next time.
★★★★☆ Mar 13, 2017 (bus VIP, Seasons Express) :
T'was grand. Very smooth
★★★☆☆ Mar 1, 2017 (bus VIP, Transtar Express (SVIP)) :
All very good, but the driver smoke on the trip!

Awesome busdrive. Great legspace and im 195cm tall dutch guys.

★★★★☆ Feb 3, 2017 (bus VIP, Transtar Express (SVIP)) :
Godos service
★★★★★ Jan 18, 2017 (bus VIP, Transtar Express (SVIP)) :
Very easy trip, the bus is clean and comfortable. They stopped once for a snak and a bathroom break and the rest was all the way through. All in all its a nice ride.

★★★★☆ Oct 10, 2016 (train #74 Shuttle, KTM) :

★★★★☆ Sep 30, 2016 (bus VIP, Five Stars Express) :
Good service. Really good coach. Only problem was no wifi.
★★★★★ Sep 29, 2016 (train #70 Shuttle, KTM) :
So smooth and easy. The border crossing was simplicity itself and the short journey on a clean, well maintained train made an early start more bearable.
★★★★☆ Sep 28, 2016 (train #70 Shuttle, KTM) :
Got the tickets on line printed copies and once at JB Sental was issued tickets no problem. Train to Gemas was empty,and a bit worn. Train from Gemas to KL Sental fast clean and new, not a lot of passengers Well done 12go.asia. M ODonnell
★★★★★ Sep 27, 2016 (train #70 Shuttle, KTM) :
Quick and hassle free
★★★★★ Sep 26, 2016 (train #86 Shuttle, KTM) :
Its fast n efficient. A very good service by ktm
★★★★★ Sep 26, 2016 (train #70 Shuttle, KTM)
★★★★☆ Sep 26, 2016 (bus VIP24, Konsortium Express) :
Good service, left roughly on time, clean bus with lots of leg room and stopped on the way for food and toilets with enough time. Not sure why it says it's just over 5 hours because the journey was over 7 hours - needs to be a bit clearer about how long the actual journey is including stops.
★★★★★ Sep 24, 2016 (bus VIP, Five Stars Express) :
I almost got an heartattack by the traffic experience on the highway, but the driver was very friendly, patient and quick.
★★★★★ Sep 20, 2016 (train #74 Shuttle, KTM) :
I miss the day when i take the train from Tanjong Pagar Railway Station.
★★★☆☆ Sep 18, 2016 (train #74 Shuttle, KTM) :
The train timing was late by so much. It was supposed to depart at 10 but departed at about 10.30am
★★★★☆ Sep 17, 2016 (bus VIP, Five Stars Express)
★★★★★ Aug 31, 2016 (train #70 Shuttle, KTM) :
Very quick. No silly forms. Electronic finger prints taken. Friendly staff
★★☆☆☆ Aug 24, 2016 (train #70 Shuttle, KTM) :
No need to take train, could've just stayed in the bus i was in to get to the train station in the first place. This train ride should not be advised.
★★★☆☆ Aug 14, 2016 (train #74 Shuttle, KTM) :
Check in to be faster. If timing of train is at 10am then check in to be at 9.15am then train can set off at 10am sharp and not set off at 10.30am.
★★★★★ Aug 14, 2016 (train #70 Shuttle, KTM) :
Easy and convenience.
★★★★☆ Aug 12, 2016 (train #78 Shuttle, KTM) :
Fast and easy to book. Would have been better if there is clearer instructions to exchange the e ticket for a physical ticket
★★☆☆☆ Aug 9, 2016 (bus VIP, Pacific Express) :
The staff in the travel agents at the Golden Mile were nice and friendly. Our driver couldn't speak a word of English so we couldn't communicate at all with him. The total journey was actually 8 hours!! Our driver made us get off somewhere random 2 hours outside of KL and follow a random guy to another coach that took us to KL. this coach then dropped us somewhere in KL but not Berjaya Times Square! We were messed around quite a lot.
★★★★☆ Aug 6, 2016 (train #70 Shuttle, KTM) :
Long queues too at the CIQ, beats crossing the causeway by bus.
★★★★☆ Aug 6, 2016 (train #70 Shuttle, KTM) :
The air condicioner was extremely high but the service in general was efficient and cool.
★★★★★ Jul 28, 2016 (bus VIP, Five Stars Express) :
Perfect way to travel from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur: It's like travelling business class on the road!
★★★☆☆ Jul 28, 2016 (bus VIP, Five Stars Express) :
Bus was fine, plenty of room and comfy chairs. Only had 1 other passenger on a 20 seater. However, no WiFi, reading lights didn't work, and the bus took 7 hrs instead of 5.
★★★☆☆ Jul 26, 2016 (bus VIP, Five Stars Express)
★★★★☆ Jul 25, 2016 (train #78 Shuttle, KTM) :
good and fast
★★★★★ Jul 23, 2016 (train #74 Shuttle, KTM)
★★★★☆ Jul 21, 2016 (train #70 Shuttle, KTM) :
An easy and hassle free way to go fro Singapore to KL. Its a slow journey but pleasant. The mid week trains we went on were almost empty and there were no queues at immigration.
★★★★☆ Jul 17, 2016 (train #84 Shuttle, KTM)
★★★☆☆ Jul 14, 2016 (train #70 Shuttle, KTM) :
While this route would not be one of the worlds great train journeys, it was cheap and convenient. Immigration was a breeze. We had booked our tickets online and took our printed tickets with us. Everything ran smoothly and easily.
★★★★★ Jul 8, 2016 (train #78 Shuttle, KTM) :
Cheap easy n fast
★★★★★ Jul 6, 2016 (bus VIP, Five Stars Express) :
Excellent, well-organised trip. Very comfortable seating, driver made sure we all new what we were doing at border controls and was very clear about where we were stopping and how long we had at each stop. Will certainly use again on my next trip over this part of the world.
★★★★☆ Jul 4, 2016 (train #78 Shuttle, KTM) :
not bad easy to book
★★★☆☆ Jul 3, 2016 (train #70 Shuttle, KTM) :
Punctual but too much things to do for a 5 minutes trip
★★★☆☆ Jul 3, 2016 (bus VIP24, Konsortium Express) :
Asientos rotos
★★★★★ Jun 28, 2016 (train #70 Shuttle, KTM) :
The train departed exactly at 8:00 am. The staff were friendly and we went thru both Singaporean and Malaysian Immigration without any problems. Best way to get to JB station from Woodlands station.
★★★★★ Jun 28, 2016 (bus VIP, Transtar Express (SVIP)) :
Nicer trip than we expected! It was a little tricky to find where to meet the bus, but the ride was very comfortable, and the operator handled a difficult situation well.
★★☆☆☆ May 30, 2016 (bus VIP, Pacific Express) :
5 hour journey took 7 hours, and when we got through passport control we had to swap to a smaller bus as there was apparently something wrong with the one we were on.. New driver was pretty dangerous, he had to do emergency stops on numerous occasions on the motorway as he was driving too close to other cars. I didn't feel safe at all!
