Night Train from Singapore to KL Sentral

It is not question - it is free advice to fellow travellers - never ever travel on this train even if it is free or tickets paid by someone else. The whole night on travel could be one big nightmare. Travel by road or by air but not by train. This is one area where the singapore and malaysian authorities have to work real hard.

The night train is absolutely fine ( well the 2 birth first class cabins anyway'. Done this journey twice, last time in 2009. The primary reason is to save a night hotel accommodation and not loose a day sightseeing/work by having to travel during the day.

We did this journey in April last year. My 10 year old slept for the whole of this trip but I slept for about 2 hours, this was my own problem and I wouldn't blame the train or advise people not to go on it. It was a great adventure, it was noisy and there were several stops but it was fun, any questions ask away.

I've taken the night train twice, one occasion seated and another occasion on 2nd class sleeper. The sleeper was okay, seat carriages not so much. It's the cheapest way to get to/from KL and Singapore so obviously it is not as convenient or as quick as coach or plane and you need to manage your expectations.
