Whenever you want to travel on an ETS train in Malaysia you should always book your tickets in advance rather than just turning up at the station on the day you want to travel as trains can often be full.
This is because there are a limited amount of seats available, there are no standing passengers allowed and each passenger requires a reserved seat to board the train.
Booking advance tickets is an easy thing to do in Malaysia.
You can go to any ticket counter at any ETS train station.
