Getting Around

  • Bus There’s hardly anywhere you can’t get by bus on Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore, but they are more limited on Brunei.
  • Train & MRT Trains in Malaysia are slower than the bus and have a far less extensive network; still useful for access to a few remote locations. The MRT is the best way to get around Singapore.
  • Car Good idea to hire one to explore Malaysia and Brunei’s hinterlands; avoid using in cities though.
  • Flights Planes go to major cities, islands and more remote destinations.
  • Ferries For island-hopping and connections between Malaysia and Singapore.
