It is a short 5 minutes journey across the Johor Straits. That’s all it takes via the KTM Shuttle Train Service from Woodlands, Singapore to Johor Bahru, Johore, Malaysia and vice versa. Train frequency is on a fixed schedule – which begun in July 2015. And the frequency was adjusted in January 2016. Now almost a year on, I decided to do a capture a photo diary of this 5 minutes train journey.
A convenient journey via train back to Singapore for a weekend outing to Johor Bahru in Malaysia.

Train tickets are usually on sale 30 days ahead and can be sold out within a week or 2 before the actual departure date. So it will be wise to plan the trip early. Or stick with the usual public buses.
The journey maybe a short one, but it is time savings from queuing at the Immigration and also provides some sightseeing depending on the time of the day of the journey.
