Now Malaysia Railways are pricing their tickets using their KTM Flexi Fare system (Tambang Fleksi), ticket prices vary from day-to-day.
Basically, it is cheaper if you book your tickets far in advance, more expensive if you leave it until just a few days before your departure.
There are also a number of "Peak" and "Off-Peak" times of the day, days of the week and holiday periods which change the price you pay.

Travel by ETS train in Malaysia is on a seat only basis so you will need a reservation to board the train.
Your ticket gets you a reserved seat number and each train has a limited amount of seats.
ETS trains are a very popular way to travel around Peninsular Malaysia, so we advise you to book as far in advance as you can if you need to travel on a particular day or time.
You can buy your tickets from the BM railway station ticket counter (or any other ETS station in the country).
