Buying train tickets in Malaysia is easy, however, we would recommend you buy your tickets as far in *advance as you can as there are many times of the year when trains will be sold out well in advance (public holidays, religious festivals, Chinese New Year).
You have a choice of ways to purchase KTM train tickets:
If you are in Malaysia already, you can visit any ETS railway station and buy your tickets from the ticket counter.
At some of the larger, busy stations like KL Sentral, you will have to take a number, then wait your turn to get served.
*Advance tickets can be available for purchase for various periods.
Sometimes you can get tickets 2 to 3 months in advance - sometimes just a few weeks in advance.
It all depends when KTM release tickets for sale and if they are planning a timetable changes.
