If you wait to buy your tickets on the day of travel, there is a good chance that all seats may be sold out, so making an advance booking is highly advisable (especially during school holidays, religious holidays, weekends and around any public holidays).
You can book your tickets from the KTM ticket counter at Ipoh Railway Station or any mainline ETS railway station within Peninsular Malaysia.
Train tickets in Malaysia usually go on sale between 30 - 60 days before the departure date, but advance booking periods can vary quite considerably.
You can also easily book your tickets online.
Booking online usually works out the same price as the station counter ticket price, but it saves you the time and expense of a trip to your nearest KTM train station.
