Luxury buses and express bus services are popular among travellers between Singapore and Malaysia….Every year thousands of tourists, workers and students travel between Singapore and Malaysia’s Malacca, Kuala Lumpur, Genting Highlands, Seremban, Ipoh, Penang and beyond by express buses and luxury buses.
Why Take Bus and but not by Air ?
One of the main reasons travellers prefer to take express buses rather than budget airlines is the convenience (for example: pickup points in the city or near MRT stations) and on the luxury bus – the wider seat and spacious legroom.
The express bus journey from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur may take up to 5 hours or more as compared to 1 hour of flight time or less. However, when you consider the pre check-in time at the airport, immigration process and the 50-minute taxi ride from the KLIA to the KL city centre , the actual travel time to Kuala Lumpur might not differ too much .
When Buses are faster and Much Convenient
It may be faster, cheaper and much convenient to take the express buses from Singapore to certain destinations in Malaysia. You can save the 120 minutes of pre check-in and the hefty taxi fares on airport transfer. If you plan to visit Malacca or Genting Highlands, take bus. The express buses are much more comfortable and fares start from around $23.
