Train to Bangkok, Thailand from Singapore 

What??

Our thoughts exactly. See, when people think of going to Bangkok, the answer’s often “flight lor”. That said, the easiest path may be comfortable but it may not be the most exciting. If you’re a traveller – rather than a vacationer – who adores the journey as much as the destination, there’s a train journey you have to try. It begins not in Mongolia or Moscow, but here in Singapore. 

Here’s how you get from Singapore to Bangkok by train for less than S$100, within 2 days.

– 1.5-day journey through Malaysia

The 2,000+km route may seem complicated but it can be broken down into 4 bite-sized parts. The journey involves first taking Malaysia’s major railway network Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTM), across our neighbouring country, before crossing the border into Thailand and transferring to the Thai Railways. Tickets can all be purchased online before your trip.

Here’s the TL;DR:

  • Woodlands (SG) to Johor Bahru (SG-MY)
  • Johor Bahru (MY) to Gemas (MY)
  • Gemas to Padang Besar (MY)
  • Padang Besar (MY) to Bangkok (MY-TH)
