Malacca, the historical town is located in Malaysia on the west coast facing the Straits of Malacca. It is about 147 kilometers from Kuala Lumpur between the states of Negeri Sembilan and Johor. The best way to travel to Malacca is by road. Travelling down south via the North-South Highway from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport takes merely 90 minutes.
During this wonderful journey by road, you will also get to enjoy the greeneries of oil palm plantation and some evergreen tropical landscape along the North-South Expressway. You will never face any lack of fun as there are many public rest areas, stop-overs, and strategic view points along the highway so the journey will be pleasant and splendid if one needs to have a rest
Travelling from Singapore to Malacca: There are regular buses and luxury coaches from Singapore to Malacca; which is a 5½ hours journey. Alternatively, we can take a train from Singapore to Tampin station and then take a bus or taxi from there, which is about 38 km. A taxi from Tampin to Malacca costs around 80 ringgit Ringgit, which is about $24.
Both ways, if you are travelling from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore or from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur, travelling by the train is the safe, comfortable & amazingly alternative to travel overland between Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Penang & Bangkok. It is a thrilling experience, unlike flying or even taking buses, relaxing on a train on the traditional colonial era single-track railway and passing through picturesque beauty of palm plantations and little countryside stations with lush greenery is far nicer than using a bus on a rather monotonous & boring modern motorway. Leaving the faded colonial grandeur of Singapore and enjoying your way into Malaysia is going to be an enchanting experience for you. Singapore to Kuala Lumpur takes 6 hours by most of the daytime train and it takes 8 hours on an overnight sleeper, the fare for the journey would be somewhere around $10 one-way. e to Bangkok journey ca
