Trans Malaysia - Thailand to Singapore

» DIY-style with 8 Cycle-days

fr SGD2190

9 Days



SCT DIY Trans Malaysia ~ Thailand to Singapore

No Frills, Hassle-Free, comes with basic-support from our SSV vehicle following 100% throughout the 10-day journey into Singapore.

(We did this 3 times previously using a different border-crossing at Wang Kelian in Perlis).

Starting at the border of Thailand (Betong) with Malaysia (Bukit Berapit), you will traverse the almost 1000km challenging ride through the southernmost peninsular of Asia continent

We do it the same DIY-style for our Taiwan Round Island Cycling
Trans Malaysia still comes with vehicular support, with daily GPX files given to every cyclist (1 cycling leader to set a common group pace if more than 10pax), logistical SSV vehicle following 100% behind the convoy (for your daily luggage transfer, medical emergencies, mechanical issues)

Overview of Trans Malaysia - Thailand to Singapore

* more details of daily routes under Tour Information



* We meet in Penang & transfer you to Thai-border at Betong to start the expedition.

* We use the sea-lane to enter Singapore via ferry from Desaru coast.

* We plan for 8 cycle-days with an average of 120km/day (most companies do 10-12days)

* For your safety, we transfer you in/out of KL on Day5/6 due to heavy traffic in the city!

* From our extensive cycling in Malaysia over the years,  combined with valuable inputs from our well-trained & cycling-oriented SSVs drivers , you can be assured of the BEST way to make this journey.

* We replace some segments to detour into unique back-country roads for that check-point shot & sight-seeing.


This is another important element of our DIY Trans Malaysia.

* First of all, we will issue every cyclist the daily GPX files of the route.  What this means to you is that you are able to cycle confidently On Your Own, OR Collectively Together with cyclists of the same pace.  You do not need to rush nor be restricted by how you want to spend your time everyday.

* We value some personal time in cycling, hence by doing as a DIY-style, you can be informed of the daily route to take, where you can stop for own meals/breaks, which hotels you will end up for the night, AND YET able to cycle like a personal adventure! 
(There will be a cycle-leader/guide to lead & set the pace for those who prefer to follow someone, available if >10pax).

* SCT DIY Trans Malaysia will give you that "SENSE of ADVENTURE" as if you are on your own, yet with the Safety & Support aspect that comes with our SSV for your daily luggage & providing assistance in the event of mechanical issue (OR when you decide to take it easy for that day)
We will advise the daily rest-stops, coffee breaks lunch point options for your own freedom of choice. 

Unlike joining other bigger players or in a mega event, we will operate this Trans Malaysia from just minimum 05pax.
You can also gather your own friends whom you are comfortable with to cycle together in sub-groups, OR simply go out on your own following our GPX route.



 (10D9N - details & GPX file will be sent via pm on event Whatsapp)
We do not simply follow the trunk route.  There are many nice quiet back-country routes that we have checked it out from our local knowledge of the years.
