How to get from Singapore airport to the city?
Given the size of the mini-States of Singapore, to get from the airport to any part of the country can be very fast. The airport is located 20 kilometres from downtown Singapore (airport map).

Instead of the local taxi you can use the service transfers. This is an analogue of a taxi, but with a high level of service, meeting at the airport with a sign, and Russian-speaking support. To check the transfer prices and can be ordered through a search form:
Shittle service. More economical and quite convenient way is to use the so – called Shittle service. It is something like our "Gazelles", which for $ 9 will take you to your hotel in the city. But, unfortunately, the service doesn't always work as during the day, and all year round.
City bus. Buses travel to downtown Singapore from 6 a.m. until 12 at night. The trip cost s $ 2 (prepare change, change). Look for buses on the lower level of the airport terminals.

A free Shuttle bus (Free shuttle bus). The free bus to get from the airport to the city and back for free. There are several routes for the free bus, but, unfortunately, only one route to CHANGI BUSINESS PARK goes on weekdays. The remaining buses are only available on weekends and public holidays. Details about the schedule and routes can be found here http://www.changiairport.com/.
In Singapore ends the railway of Malaysia, which, in turn, is connected with the railway in Thailand. So, theoretically, in Singapore, can be reached by train even from the cities of Thailand, but direct make this impossible.
A direct train runs between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. From other cities of Malaysia North of Kuala Lumpur and Thailand will have on the train ride with transfers (with the exception of a trip on the Orient Express).

But, given the presence of budget airlines in Asia with their ultra-low prices, use W/d to move from Bangkok to Singapore is only in the case that you really like to travel by train. Benefits of money from this move, you will likely not get.

And if you use night train, you can save a night on accommodation at the hotel. From Kuala Lumpur trains depart from the station KL Sentral.
In Singapore, the final stop of this train station to Woodlands Train Checkpoint. The station is located about 20 kilometres North of Singapore city (station to Woodlands Train Checkpoint on the map). Here is passport and customs control. To get to Woodlands you can take a taxi (about 30 Singapore dollars from downtown), metro (station is Woodlands MRT and then bus, about 3.3 SGD). On the road it is necessary to establish at least an hour.

Tickets can be purchased 30 days before departure. Attention! Kuala Lumpur in the search on the website of the carrier listed as Sentral Kuala Lumpur (though there is a line in Kuala Lumpur, it's not what you need), and in Singapore the station was listed as Woodlands CIQ.

- Seating position of the second ASD class (air – conditioned car) - 34 ringgit (about 340 rubles);
- A seat in first class for AFD (air-conditioned car) – 68 ringgit (about 680 rubles);
- Reclining seat in the reserved seat ADNS (air conditioned car) – 40 ringgit;
- Reclining seat in the compartment ADNFD (air conditioned car) – 118 ringgit;
Keep in mind that buying tickets on the train from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur, you will have to pay more than double the Kuala Lumpur – Singapore. Even if you purchase tickets on the website of the shipping carrier and your itinerary starts in Singapore, still overpay, and the site has almost three times more expensive. These oddities come from the fact that the cost of tickets in Malaysian ringgit are converted at the exchange rate in Singapore dollars (the rate of which is higher), and transferred one to one. To circumvent this oddity can getting two separate ticket on the same train from Singapore to Johor Bahru on the Malaysian side (and pay for it on the Singapore prices, but a small distance), and a second ticket from Johor Bahru to Kuala Lumpur at Malaysian prices already. If we fail to purchase a ticket Singapore - Johor Bahru on the website, then purchase it at the box office in Singapore. You can also buy a ticket from Johor Bahru to Kuala Lumpur at Malaysian prices, and to Johor Bahru bus or taxi.
