2017 Drive from Singapore to Thailand – Day 1 – SG to KL

Ever since our first Singapore – Thailand road trip in 2015, we have made this a yearly affair for our family. For our past trips, the first day was a 800km drive from Singapore to Alor Setar at the north of Peninsular Malaysia, but this year, we decided to go easy on ourselves and break this into two legs. This means that for our first day, we have an extremely manageable 330km drive.

We set of at 7:40am on a Friday morning, and was blessed to have completely no traffic at the Woodlands border crossing. The North South Highway was also extremely smooth and we made it to our rest stop at 10am for brunch at Restoran Jejantas Ayer Keroh, a few kilometres past the Bandaraya Melaka exit.

After brunch, again it was a smooth drive for another 1 hour and 20 minutes to reach our destination for the day – Ibis Styles Fraser Business Park, KL. Was extremely nice to have the whole afternoon to rest and chill and to prepare ourselves for the longer drives that are coming up the next 2 days!

  1. Hi! Thanks so much for your informative blog posts about driving from SG to TH! Just a quick question though….we are considering a similar trip in our diesel SUV….was it difficult to find Euro 5 diesel along the way? Thanks much!

    1. Hi KJ, now is much easier, look out for BHP petrol stations along the NSE route, uou can find Euro 5 as far north as Alor Setar. From my sources, now there is also Euro 5 at some Thai petrol kiosks
