Trevelling from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur

If you are making the trek from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur but want to avoid the hassle of the airport, your only other option is to drive. We used a service called Day Trip which is primarily used in Europe, however they do offer a run from Singapore to KL.

Day Trip is a service that takes you from one destination to another with added tourist stops along the way for an additional fee. We decided to make a stop in Melaka, a vibrant historic state in Malaysia.

Melaka is quite impressive with river boat tours, a night market along Jonker Street, naval museum, the Menara Taming Sari, a revolving tower that lifts you over the city and so much more. The 2 hours we spent here didn’t really do it justice. I highly recommend two days to get the full experience.

The best way to get from one attraction to the next is by taking a rickshaw. This is a passenger bike/cart complete, with decorations, music and lights! Definitely a highlight of the trip.

The drive from Singapore to Melaka is about 3.5 hours and Melaka to Kuala Lumpur is another 2.5 hours. The entire day trip cost us $250 for the three of us. There was a little bit of traffic crossing the border but otherwise was hassle free. We didn’t even have to leave the vehicle.
