I decided to add Kuala Lumpur to my Singapore travel itinerary when I took 1 week vacation from work. These two cities are quite near to each anyway. 8 days to tour Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Genting felt just right. It was not too rushed nor too long. It took me a month to piece my travel itinerary all together just so I get to travel between these two cities in the most comfortable way. Transportation between these two cities is quite easy and straightforward. Luxury buses plying the route between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur are plentiful. Below you can find my 8 day Singapore travel itinerary together with my side trips to Kuala Lumpur and Genting.
2014 Update: This Singapore travel itinerary was made last 2007 and there were changes on tourist destinations. The DHL Balloon has ceased to operate effective October 2008 so please update your Singapore travel plans accordingly. As a tip, taking the Singapore Flyer to get a bird’s eye-view of the city is a good alternative. There are also a number of new attractions like the Gardens by the Bay, Universal Studios and Legoland. It maybe wise to add a day or two in your Singapore travel itinerary to cover these new tourist destinations. Despite of new attractions, this trip report will remain valuable if you are looking for information on how to get from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur via luxury bus and information on Kuala Lumpur travel.
