To Singapore, Tumpat, Hat Yai

To take the train from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur and visa versa is very easy. The Malaysian rail system is extremely well developed on this track. Except for the annoyance at the border crossing from Singapore, where you are forced to get out of the train and wait in a huge customs line. The trip takes about six or so hours, but is quite relaxing, and better then the bus on weekends (traffic).

There are 8 trains a day going to Singapore, 2 trains are going to Tumpat (through the jungle to Kota Bharu) and to trains are leaving for Hat Yai (in Thailand).
