By Air

Thanks to the variety of budget airlines that serves this route, taking a flight has become the best way to travel between these two cities. There are three major budget airlines serving this route, namely Air Asia, Tiger Airways and Jetstar. There are also lots of other full service airlines that serve this route. Due to the large amount of competition, it is relatively easy to get your hands on a bargain fair. You can book as late as just one week before your travel date and still get a fare that matches a regular premium bus ticket. The flight to Singapore takes just 45 minutes.

By Bus

There are also lots of busses serving these two cities, with busses leaving every hour or so. The busses run throughout the day starting from as early as 6.30am. The last bus leaves at around 11pm arriving in Singapore in the wee hours of morning. Like with many Malaysian bus routes, most companies provide online ticketing services where you can purchase your tickets only.

There are also a lot of different types of busses to choose from. There are the regular air-conditioned busses, and then there are also ultra-vip busses that come with personal TV sets for each seat, meals on board, drinking water, an onboard steward/stewardess to serve you and on board wi-fi. These premium busses usually cost twice the price of regular busses. The journey takes anywhere around 5 – 6 hours depending on the type of bus you take. The premium busses are usually a little faster as they take a more expensive (higher toll rates), but faster route. An average one-way economy bus ticket cost around RM50 per person.

By Train

The price of a train ticket for this route is about the same as a bus trip, but the journey is much longer taking up to 8 hours on average to reach Singapore. Because of this, many people shy away from taking the train for this route.

Nevertheless, for those who are not in a grand hurry, taking a day train down to Singapore is a great way to see the Malaysia countryside. Some people may even find taking the train more comfortable as there are on board toilets and restaurant carts for you to hang out in if you want to catch a quick bite.

Yes, it might be one of the more expensive tourist attractions in Singapore, but really, it is hard not to have fun at Universal Studios. Regardless of your age and preferences, Universal Studios is a great place to spend a relaxing afternoon with your friends or loved ones. I would recommend spending an entire day here if possible and go for all the rides! My favorite show/ride at the park was Transformers!

Marina Bay Sands is Singapore’s hottest new entertainment complex, boasting a bold futuristic design, unbeatable location and lots of hype. During its launch a couple of years ago, its marketing machine went on overdrive setting very high standards on what we could expect from it. I am glad to say the the whole complex does live up to its hype. It has become one of the must-visit places of Singapore for any bona fide traveler.

Everything from its architecture to its location is designed to impress. The complex is home to a 5 star hotel, casino, a convention center, a huge shopping mall and a string of other tourist attractions. The hotel rooms, by far, have the best views of the Singapore skyline. The hotel’s pool is located on the rooftop together with the SkyPark. The SkyPark is open to the public where you can enjoy the breathtaking views for a small fee.
