Singapore and Malaysia are two of the most culturally diverse countries in all of South East Asia. Mixtures of Malay, Chinese, and Indian cultures are predominately found throughout these two countries. Because of this unique infusion of cultures, Malaysia and Singapore is a great starting point to South East Asia and to the rest of Asia. However like travelling anywhere in the world, you will still need to maintain a budget to ensure you have enough money to last your trip.
Sometimes, what you spend is not what you get – i.e. you spent too much, but you don’t get the value of what you paid for. Here are some practical tips on how to travel cheap and save lots of money in Singapore and Malaysia by comparing Singapore’s and Kuala Lumpur’s airports and how that can affect your budget!
Singapore Changi International Airport on the east side of Singapore, is rated on the top 20 list of the world’s most busiest airports.
It pretty much has flights coming in from all parts of the world, either direct through one airline carrier, or through the wide network of partner airline alliances. This gives you superior choice and flexibility when choosing your flights to Singapore, and subsequently choosing your flights from Singapore onwards to your next destination.
That being said, another big airport serving South East Asia is Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia, and it also has quite an extensive number of routes from all around the world.
So what makes landing in Singapore better than Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia? What a lot of people don’t know is that Kuala Lumpur International Airport is not really in Kuala Lumpur at all. It is actually located in Sepang, a town just south of it, and will at least take you an hour by car (this is being optimistic, considering Kuala Lumpur is notorious for bad traffic) to the city center of Kuala Lumpur.
Comparatively Singapore Changi International airport is only 20 min by car to its city center. Most likely if you are coming from a faraway place, you will be having jet lag of ‘epic proportions’ when you arrive. And I don’t know about you, but definitely one of the first things that I always want to do after a very long flight is to quickly check in to my hotel and have a hot shower!
