Why Singapore and Malaysia Travel Routes are so busy

Singapore and Malaysia are such countries where one can really enjoy and have a perfect family holiday. Singapore is a contemporary world-class city which is known as a safe place and has numerous entertainment alternatives. A huge number of tourists travel directly from Singapore to Malaysia. Trains and buses run between these two cities. In fact, bus is a suitable option and many people prefer it. Travelling by Bus from Singapore to Malaysia ( KL) gives tourists the chance to visit new places. Malaysia is actually a well-liked tourist destination that is mostly famous for its shopping festival and year-end sale. It is a country in Southeast Asia, situated partly on a peninsula of the Asian mainland and somewhat on the northern third of the island of Borneo. West Malaysia shares a border with Thailand that is linked by a walkway and a bridge (the 'second link') to the island state of Singapore.

There are some famous tourist destinations in Malaysia which are like Langkawi Island, Penang, St. Paul's Hill in Melaka, Pahang, and Gunung Mulu National Park in Sarawak. The F1 racing circuit in Sepang also catch the attention of many people. Malacca (or Melaka) is a popular tourist mark and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You will get direct bus services from Singapore to Malacca also.

Actually, the road system in Singapore is very clear, easy and well-organized, but can get very crowded at peak times, particularly on weekends and holidays, while Singaporeans crowd on top of the road walkway to Johor Bahru in Malaysia. The left side is driving and the speed limit is 50-70kph (31-43mph) in residential areas and 70-90kph (43-56mph) on expressways. The main route into Singapore is the kilometre-long walkway, connecting the northern district of Woodlands with Malaysia's Johor Bahru. This causeway is always found very busy with the volume of traffic increase at weekends. Well, these all are the reasons due to which Singapore and Malaysia travel routes are found always busy.

The ‘Second Link', formally recognized as the Malaysia-Singapore Second Crossing, was made to improve the traffic and must be faster at busy periods. This second bridge is usually situated on the western side of Singapore and links the Tuas checkpoint in Singapore with Tanjung Kupang in Malaysia.

However, it takes 5 - 6 hrs to reach Kuala Lumpur (KL), the capital of Malaysia from Singapore by bus. The bus fares starts from $30, one-way and this could be varied from the kind of coach and the date you travel. Day travellers are honoured to stop at meals centres and public washrooms for their relief.
