woah, nice tips shiroa... now I know how to use google maps correctly hahaha...

but I also have plan B which is, I travel there by night train from KL which makes me arrive at the morning, then come back to KL with night train from Singapore.

and, I'll visit jaben between the gap...

anyone tried that??

train took almost 10 hours.. not really a good choice.. :) i got my friend an airasia ticket from LCCT to Changi for 25RM / less than 100.000IDR for one way (cos he then takes flight home from singapore).. hehe.. otherwise bus is your best bet :D

yeah, hahaha I just want to take that ticket... but when I want to take it 2 with my friend the price suddenly multiplied... hahaha, there are some days that I still can get 25Rm for ticks but I can't go on that time, too bad...

if not going by train I'll be going by bus, which is faster isn't it?

the only things that I thinking right now is the accommodation that nearly impossible to get room with decent price in this close time...

@ dancedetrance :
I wouldn't suggest to stay in Hotel 81 actually....to be honest that hotel is known as "happy ending" hotel....

Better to stay in Lucky Plaza flat....cost you around 80 SGD/night which can be shared by 2 people, I can give you contact person if needed :D

Maybe you can check on valuair for cheap airplane ticket to spore...

if u want to stay around 80 bucks per night..
u can stay in Amara hotel.

http://www.booking.com/hotel/sg/amara-singapore.en.html?aid=311088;label=hotel-25110-sg-vCUQsNRsF8f*6fJqLRpaswS1097091063;ws=&gclid=CKSO9rDs0ZwCFdMtpAodJksZJA

bus to/from KL?
u can check on transtar...there's quite nice also.
Train is not reccomended regarding to the safety and comfortability.

airplane ticket from KL to Singapore?
yea, it's cheaper. but the airport in KL is quite far from the city. I think it should be more than 30 mins from Bukit bintang/KLCC area to KLIA.
When u reached Singapore, it'll be same situation.
If u use bus, u'll go from downtown to the downtown.
Most of the bus in singapore depart in Bugis/Lavender area.

FYI only.

hahahaha.. didnt know that :P

yep, and i'd recommend to avoid taxis as much as possible, they will cost around 70-100RM, especially at overtime hours (if you can, avoid early morning tickets which most probably force you to go by taxis). Its best to go to KL Central and catch LCCT's skybus from there.. very cheap and affordable :)

I'm thinking about it also but the 25 RM ticket is either morning or night plane, or at least when going on morning flight I would divide the taxi with my friend...
