From my experience, it's better to book ahead kasi minsan napupuno agad yung mga bus

cherub.rock:

re: DIY vs travel agency
Halos lahat ng trip ko DIY talaga. What I like about DIY is I get to do what I really wanted and stay as long as I want in one place. Medyo hassle nga lang to research about your destination, but okay na rin kasi it's a great way to learn about the place you're visiting.

re: budget
Malaysia is cheaper to travel in than Singapore. Though KL isn't all that exciting (the food's great though), Malacca is simply lovely (and it's just 2 hours from KL, 4-5 hours from Singapore).

I can't give you an exact figure as to how much you'd need for your trip since our traveling style and preferences might be different. But to give you an idea, I've posted my travel budget on past trips in my blog:
Malaysia (7 days): http://justwandering.org/2009/07/travel-budget-malaysia/
Singapore (6 days): http://justwandering.org/2009/07/travel-budget-singapore/
Singapore and Malacca (8 days): http://justwandering.org/2009/12/travel-budget-singapore-and-malacca-birthday-trip/

I hope that helps :)

sis neeners, thanks for your reply. yes, i really want to a DIY trip too. i love planning and researching. it is gonna be my first trip abroad though (hopefully) so baka mahirapan ako.

i was planning get a one way plane ticket to singapore then bus travel to malaysia. after that, uwi na ako to pinas from malaysia na. is that a good idea? how much is the usual airfare from phils to singapore? i checked PAL.. 200+ USD. that's just one way. hmm medyo mahal considering some sisses here are able to get tickets for less than 10k roundtrip na. si cebu pac cheaper? does it land as well on changgi airport? i read before na hindi daw. pardon my ignorance. i wanna see changgi din. :P ::)

Sa PAL kasi, minsan mura, specially kung ang balik mo is within 8 days. Since hindi budget airline ang PAL, mahal bumili ng one-way ticket sa kanila.

If you want to see Changi airport and not the budget terminal, fly with Jetstar (www.jetstar.com). Budget airline siya, pero they fly to Changi Terminal 1. In Manila, sa Terminal 1 siya. Jetstar ako usually kapag nagpupunta ng Singapore.

Okay naman yung plan mo na Manila-Singapore-Malaysia-Manila. From Malaysia ang option mo is either Cebu Pacific (NAIA Terminal 3) or Air Asia (DMIA Clark). Both fly from the KL Low cost carrier terminal in Kuala Lumpur.

Yung fare depende kung kelan ka pupunta and how far ahead ka bumili ng ticket. Dati naka bili ako ng ticket to Singapore, one way for only US$40. Pero Feb or March ko ata siya binili for travel in May.

^wow sis, the info i got from u has been very helpful so far. i tried mock booking thru jetstar.. 90usd (php4,500) one way ticket. kaso im from cebu pa so i have to get a connecting flight from cebu to mnl. my estimated budget for airfare for the whole trip is 10k pa naman. kaya kaya yun?

and for the rest of my budget (food, transpo, accomodations), around 15k for SG and 10k for malaysia. is that enough? i dont intend to shop for goods. [textspeak!] konting pasalubong lang. i'm also not mapili when it comes to accomodations as long as it's clean. i wont spend the whole day in my hotel room anyway. do u think my budget is enough?

from Singapore to Malaysia, which city yung pinaka malapit sa airport?

kasi sa Malaysia kame mag exit to Manila, from Singapore, what is the best station to pick na malapit na sa airport? we'll be taking Aeroline bus ( https://www.aeroline.com.sg/time_promo.html )

our flight kasi back to Manila is 1AM, so plan namen from SG to Malaysia, we'll be taking a bus na 6pm back to Malaysia then derecho na kame to airport, what is the best way kaya ? :)

TIA

cherub.rock: Actually, medyo mahal na yung 4,500 sa Jetstar. If you want to adhere to your 10K airfare budget, you have to get great deals in both your Cebu-Manila-Cebu and KL-Manila ticket.

I think kakayanin naman yung budget mo for the length of your stay in the two countries. Ang maganda sa Singapore and Malaysia ang daming hawker places that sell good food for cheap. Madaming hostels in SG and Malaysia. In KL, okay sakin yung Matahari Lodge and Twenty Guesthouse in Malacca.

switlemonade: Kung 1am yung flight niyo, the latest time that you have to check in is around 12 midnight. The bus from Singapore to Malaysia takes about 5 hours, depending on the traffic. Baka sobrang traffic pa especially sa Woodlands near the causeway going into Malaysia. Better take an earlier bus para sure na dumating kayo sa airport in time. Aeroline stops at Corus hotel in KL, and it's another hour pa going to the airport.

Kung kaya ng energy niyo, take the night bus from Singpore to KL (not Aeroline). Dadating kayo mga 4 - 5 am sa KL. Explore KL for the day then head to the airport around 9pm. If you don't want to explore KL and want to take Aeroline, take either the 3pm or 4:30pm bus

^mejo malawak nga ang KL to explore dahil puro daan. in my experience since may kakilala ako, naki locker nalang ako sa gym nya sa paragon mall hehe. if you want, you can stay nalang in Petronas. That's what I did and I already call that an exploration of KL haha.

and by the way, 6pm ang bus ko nung nagbalik ako singapore. and its fairly safe naman. at walang ganong traffic. kahit na 3 lang kaming pasahero. yummy pa ng food. :)

switlemonade: if you take the 6pm bus, sabihin na nating 5 hours ang travel from SG to KL, 11pm na kayo dadating sa KL. Then may 1 hour na travel pa going to the airport, so 12 midnight na kayo dadating dun. That is kung makuha niyo in 5 hours from SG to KL and madali kayo makuha ng taxi or bus going to the airport.

The check-in counter closes 40 minutes before the flight. If you're taking the 6pm bus, you have to be sure that nothing delays your trip from Singapore to KL LCCT.

we took airasia flights sa MY to SG and back trip namin. We spent only $90 (US) for the roundtrip flight, 2 adults kami. nakaswerte ako ng promo economy flights. for me, the best deal itong nakuha ko since dadagdag ang time namin to shop since 1 day lang kami sa SG. :)

^for me naman, one and a half day lang kami sa sg kaya magbabus kami. tingin ko hindi madadagdagan ang oras niyo kasi you have to be early sa airport. lalo na sa malaysia, malayo ang airport sa city proper.

We are going to KL din sa weekend via tigerairways... Naka promo saka ok ang time nila...
Ask ko lang po san ba ang sakayan ng star shuttle sabi direct na daw ito papuntang hotel e from airport... May nakasubok na ba? Tapos pagpauwi na saan kaya ang sakayan pabalik ng airport? From hotel to airport...
