Although I absolutely love train travel, I’ve never been that excited about travelling by bus. So I was a little surprised that after some research, travelling by bus to Singapore from KL seemed like the best option for us. So if you’re trying to decide how to get from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore too, here’s our Aeroline bus review and experience on a luxury bus from Kuala Lumpur To Singapore.
Aeroline KL To Singapore: Our Aeroline Bus Review
We decided to take the Aeroline luxury bus from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore. I have to say, it was a good experience and we were so happy we chose to take the bus instead of the train or flight.
So the Aeroline bus leaves from the Corus Hotel in the KLCC area. It’s a super central location. You can check-in in the lobby area and then wait in the breakfast area and have tea and coffee.
Aeroline Bus Facilities
The Aeroline buses are fitted out with large lounge chair-like seating in a 2-1 configuration. They are pretty comfortable and also have an entertainment system in the back of the seat, so you can watch movies the entire way if you wish.
There is a lounge area on the lower level, as well as a bathroom. We didn’t see many people using the lounge area but it looked comfortable and it’s there if you need it.
Aeroline Bus Journey
How many hours does it take to get from Kuala Lumpur To Singapore by bus? From our experience, it took around 6 hours to go from the KLCC area in Kuala Lumpur to the Harbourfront Centre in Singapore.
About halfway, you will have a quick stop if you need to go to the bathroom or get something to eat. But keep in mind, you will be given a meal on the bus too. The meal is ok without being amazing.
You will also stop at Malaysian Immigration. Here you will get off the bus and go through immigration, which only took us about 5 minutes.
You will then stop again at Singapore immigration, which took us about 20 minutes. As Australian citizens, we did not need a visa to enter Singapore. But make sure you check your visa requirements ahead of time and arrange for a visa if needed.
You can find Malaysia Visa requirements here and Singapore Visa requirements here.
Arriving In Singapore
The best thing about the bus is you are picked up and dropped off in very central locations in both Singapore and Malaysia.
When you arrive in Singapore, you will be dropped off at the Harbourfront Centre. From here you have buses, taxi’s, Uber and the MRT to get you to your accommodation. It’s quite close to Sentosa Island and not too far from Singapore CBD.
Downfalls For Bus Travel from KL To Singapore
The only downfall for me was that occasionally I get a little car/bus sick, especially if I’m watching a movie and not looking out the window. Luckily it was just momentary ill feelings and nothing more, but I don’t get this feeling on a train.
So if you get a little car sick, I’m sure it will still be fine. If you get severe car sickness, then I’m sure you’re probably not considering this option anyway. Other than this, there wasn’t really anything major.
Aeroline Bus From Kuala Lumpur To Singapore Overview
Although we have only been on one bus from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore, we would feel confident in saying this is the best bus from KL to Singapore. We chose this bus because of its good reviews, level of comfort and it’s convenient pick-up and drop-off locations. And it did not disappoint.
The trip was comfortable and easy. Although it took 6 hours, there was not much extra time before or after the bus to get to our accommodation due to its central location.
I would definitely recommend the bus to someone who wants to travel overland from Malaysia to Singapore. If you’re short on time, you could still take the bus but leave on the earliest bus, or you could, of course, get a flight to Singapore.

What Is The Best Way To Travel From Kuala Lumpur To Singapore?
During our stay in Kuala Lumpur, we were trying to decide what the best way to get from Kl to Singapore would be for us.
We considered flying as there were some great prices for flights and it is one of the quickest ways to get from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore. But being that they are neighbouring countries, if there’s an opportunity to avoid the airport and travel by land, we usually take it.
We absolutely love train travel, so of course, looking at the KL to Singapore train was our first option. Until we looked into it, and it seemed like multiple slow and uncomfortable trains that didn’t come well-reviewed.
So, reluctantly, we looked into buses. We were so surprised to find not only well-reviewed bus journeys but luxury buses too. So even though flying would have been quicker, although not by much, as you need to get to the airport and then wait, and then get from the airport to your accommodation on the other end, the bus sounded really straightforward and easy.
Now having travelled by luxury bus from KL to Singapore, I would definitely say this is one of the best ways to get from KL to Singapore.
If you’re super short on time, then of course flying may be quicker, although remember to add in all the extra time to actually go from door to door.
And in the future, there will be a high-speed train from KL to Singapore that will take only 90 minutes, due to be completed by 2026. But until then, the bus from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore will do just fine.

DO you recall how much your ticket cost pp? We are going KL-Sing one way in May but we cannot purchase our tickets yet, as they are not posted for sale at this time. Wondering how much I should budget. I am sold on Aeroline.

Amazing review we were wandering the same because we leave in December. Thanks very informative! We had decided against flying and the train due to the same reasons you mentioned however wasn’t sure which bus company we were going to use. So thanks now we don’t have to keep researching.
Hi Vee, thanks so much :) Hope you enjoyed the bus trip, definitely seemed like a better option than the train.

I’m asking this because for Indian passport there is visa exemption called entri,, there are certain check post name mentioned in entri as condition.
So I want to know the name of malaysian immigration check point name. Alos, from which building in Klcc bus leaves
Hi Amit, on our journey, the bus left from the Corus hotel in KLCC, and we went through the immigration checkpoint at Tuas. If you need a specific checkpoint for visas I would give Aeroline a call/email to check the current route :)
