Many people, when doing a south-east Asian tour on business, will find they have to travel between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur and vice versa. My suggestion is to think about using the executive coach travel available between both of these cities. It is not a great deal longer than the process of flying between these two points and involves a far friendlier and easier mode of travel.
The executive coaches have seats similar to airline business class ones. They have power points for laptop usage and food and entertainment on board for individuals. I have made the journey by plane many times and this was a little longer (maybe an hour at the most) but a lot less hassle and lot more pleasurable.
Malacca is a historic Malaysian town with a less sanitised atmosphere than Singapore. You can see it in a day on a fully escorted coach trip run by RMG Tours. Considering the distance, you get a reasonable flavour of the place as well as an excellent hotel lunch, for a very good price.
The same company do a tour to Kukup but this is comparatively disappointing, with three stops en route and inadequate time at the destination. They offer other tours within Singapore itself, which are less worthwhile as the public transport system is so good and taxis plentiful and cheap.
RMG's address is 109C Amoy Street, Singapore 069929. It has booking desks in the Orchard Road Visitors' Centre and various hotels, or see the website at www.rmgtours.com
