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).

By train

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).

The trains are quite decent, air-conditioned, and the prices are low. 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.

But by direct train from Kuala Lumpur (and there goes three daily) to reach Singapore is a pleasure and to spend on moving in just 34 of the ringgit, which is about 340 rubles. 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.

You can purchase tickets directly at the stations; the electronic ticket via the Internet on the website of the carrier (unfortunately, there are sometimes problems with the operation of the service e-tickets); book by phone or email listed on the website. 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.

Approximate cost of tickets Kuala Lumpur – Singapore:

  • 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.

In Singapore we had only one day and one night, but it's not enough!
We watched a lot of reviews, which with one voice they all say how expensive in Singapore and you can splurge even just for the food. With confidence declare that it's all stereotype!
In Singapore, a huge number of cafes, restaurants and small street fast food with very affordable prices. Just walking down the street, we stumbled upon a Chinese street cafes with incredibly delicious as was the food. 200R. per person and we were stuffed!
In General, the food in Singapore is absolutely diverse. Indian cuisine, Chinese cuisine, European cuisine and even molecular. This is due to the fact that Singapore is a city of immigrants. As such, Singaporeans simply do not exist. The main population is Chinese, and immigrants from other countries. That's why the food in Singapore is completely different and for every budget.
As for Singapore penalties, all is not so bad. Yes, a huge number of them. But if you're a law-abiding person and not a "pig", then you are not threatened.
