It was really a funny tripping experience when I boarded a train to Malaysia from Singapore. As I was on the way to board my train, I was looking ahead for some money saving tips in order to make my journey an economical choice. Recently the idea of purchasing tickets through online mode strikes my mind.

Departing from JB Sentral Instead of Singapore

ktm-trainWhile on the way to getting a train from Singapore to Malaysia, I thought it better to depart from JB Sentral instead of Woodlands.

It was one of the best trips I enjoyed till date. Apart from being an enjoyable trip, I was amazed to notice that I was able to save almost half the amount while departing from Malaysia instead of Singapore.

Since the train stations of both Malaysia and Singapore are just a causeway away, I thought it more sensible to travel towards JB Sentral by boarding a public bus hence enjoying fried chicken dish. While departing from Singapore, it is good to buy a cheap seat from Woodlands.  As I was on the way back, I decided to come back to Woodlands instead of JB in order to skip the horrible traffic jam on the causeway especially in the commuting hours.

Buying Tickets Online – A Good Choice

Getting back to ticket buying from either of the places, it is better to buy tickets online instead of buying the same from ticket counters. It has enabled me to stay away from the serpentine queue and rush of the ticket counters along with an easy saving of thousands of dollars. I was able to get the job done myself without being dependent on anybody.

Apart from all I was able to select the desired seat as per my own convenient time. As per my observation, the sleepers for overnight to Kuala Lumpur seemed to be the best choice as it comprises of a huge number of choices.
