Despite their close proximity, Singapore and Malaysia are separate countries and there are several ways to get to either of them from driving to public transportation. To get to Malaysia from Singapore may require long hours on a bus depending on where you’re heading to in Malaysia.

Since Malaysia isn’t a small country, the options are a bit more complex than most might think. Let’s guide you through what you need to know and if you can drive from Singapore to Malaysia.

 

How to Travel from Singapore to Malaysia?

There are several ways to travel from Singapore to Malaysia, depending on where you’re going. If you plan to cross the border to the neighbouring city Johor Bahru, renting and driving a car is your best bet. For the rest of Malaysia, there are other options available that might suit your needs better.

Let’s see the most convenient options here below.

 

Drive to Malaysia from Singapore – Most Convenient Option

First and foremost, as mentioned previously, driving from Singapore to Malaysia is practical if the distance is not too far.

Renting a car in Singapore isn’t cheap and will set you back anything from £70 to £90 for a normal vehicle. For luxury ones, you’re looking at £120 up.

Take a Bus to Malaysia from Singapore – Cheapest Option

We recommend using public transportation only when travelling to further parts of Malaysia such as Penang or Kuala Lumpur, or if you’re on a budget.

There are many bus companies that operate buses from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur. Some well-known ones include KKKL Express, Transtar, and Konsortium. Ticket prices range between SGD15/£8 and SGD40/£21 with a duration of 5 to 7 hours depending on traffic.

Fly to Malaysia from Singapore – Best Option Overall

There are flights available from Singapore to all parts of Malaysia for a reasonable rate and flying at all times throughout the day.

For instance, a flight from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur costs an average of £80 with Singapore Airlines and £40 with AirAsia.

 

Can you Drive from Singapore to Malaysia?

A quick and easy way to make the journey from Singapore to Malaysia is by car. Driving from Singapore downtown to Malaysia’s border city Johor Bahru will only take over 30 minutes (excluding the potential immigration stop).

On the other hand, for the rest of Malaysia, driving from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur is a breeze, but it will take you 4 or more hours depending on the road conditions. For Penang, the journey will take over 7 hours or more.

Lastly, you should expect tolls on the way as well as border stops on the way.
