    Just fyi, the KTMB online train ticketing system is online again after months and months of upgrades and it's much improved! Just register with an email address then you can choose your train, class, and even the exact seats you want. Pay with a credit card and then print your tickets at home.

    I just used it to book KL - Singapore and it worked perfectly!

    Thanks for the info idreamofdurian,
    I've recently travelled from Jahor Bahru to Tampin (and then on the bus to Melaka) and enjoyed the very relaxing train ride! We've decided to buy the ticket over the counter in JB, but could see the reservation system online and the seats available. Glad it is working!

    Thanks for the info! The KTM website always has issues. Glad to hear its working now! By the way, the Tanjong Pagar train station in Singapore will be closed soon (July 1, 2011), so anyone in the Singapore area, do take the opportunity to take the historic KTM train ride from Singapore to JB Malaysia, as it will no longer be there soon. After July 1, you will need to board the trains from Woodlands Checkpoint instead.

    Thank you for the information !
    i am planning to visit Malaysia very soon and i think that getting train tickets online is a very great thing because that way i will avoid the crowd, especially that i will be carrying heavy luggage with me.

    Hi guys, do note that Malaysia will be having the biggest festival in the country in two weeks time so most public transportation will be fully book during that time. However, if you plan to travel by train, just try your luck and see whether there are still seats left by checking the train website.
