I'll be in Singapore for a couple of days at the end of September then want to take the train to Penang. Should/can I book now or just wait till I'm there?
I'm not sure why you would want to do this, frankly. It will be a long journey and not particularly convenient, as the Malaysian Rail system is old and fairly clunky. I'd suggest going from S'pore to KL first and see how that goes...and no, you don't need to reserve a seat in advance unless its a national/weekend holiday period. Try to go mid-week if you can and pay extra for first class (which isn't much). almost 5 years agoAnswered by singabob via WorldNomads.com
