Is night travelling safe in Malaysia??

M planning to go to Langkawi on the 10th June eve, and leave lankawi by 7pm on 11th June.. I'll get a bus from Kuala Perlis to Kuala Lumpur which may depart from Kuala Perlis by around 10-11pm and will reach early morning to Kuala Lumpur?? so travelling at night is safe in that area??

Also pls suggest me the most comfortable bus service and their fares.

Being on a bus where the driver is driving through the night is always a risk! As long as the driver has had lots of sleep you should be ok . . .http://www.journeymalaysia.com/ptakualaperlis.htm

I travel on night buses alot in Malaysia, saves a night's accomodation cost & there is little to see on those highways anyway. Most companies in Malaysia are pretty good but very cold air-conditioning.I usually go with Transnasional

Yes, should be safe. I have used night buses many times when I was there. But as "shakespearestravels " Said 'Very cold air-conditioning'. So keep a jacket with you inside the bus.

Have a safe trip.
