Most Indian airports have direct nonstop flights to Changi Airport in Singapore. The frequency of flights is owed to the rising tourism between the two countries. India to Singapore distance by air is around 3440 km, and the nonstop flights usually cover it in 5 hours and 35 minutes. Both Air India and Singapore Airlines have direct flights, along with many other carriers. The best part about reaching Singapore is that most of the Indonesia-bound flights usually take a layover in Singapore, which increases the number of flights one can take to Singapore.
Singapore has rail line connections only with Malaysia and Thailand. There are no direct lines to go from India to Singapore by train because it is not possible to have rail lines through so many foreign countries. But one can take a flight to Thailand or Malaysia if the rates are cheaper and then take the train to Singapore. There are two lines. The first one serves Kuala Lumpur, and Johor Bahru and the Jungle Line runs through Malaysia until the northeast coast. Each of these lines has three trains each. There is also a luxurious train called Eastern and Oriental Express from Thailand via Malaysia to Singapore if anyone is interested in a trans-country train ride experience.
Going from India to Singapore by road is not impossible but a just time-consuming long process. From India, one has to take the India-Myanmar Friendship road. Then drive through Thailand via Bangkok to Malaysia. From Malaysia, one can either rent a car or ride a bus to Singapore. Car renting has the advantage of not going through customs or immigration. There are specially licensed taxis from Larkin Bus Terminal in Johor Bahru, the borderline area between Singapore and Malay land. There are state bus services running to and fro the causeway link that joins downtown Johor Bahru with Singapore. But traveling by bus has the disadvantage of waiting in queue for passport checking and customs just like airports. The whole process takes an hour or more to complete and requires disembarking the luggage.
Many people wish to have the experience of traveling from country to country by car or by bus, enjoying the days of the journey. It is indeed a different sort of experience if one is willing to make an effort. But for the usual tourists who simply want to reach Singapore, roadway or railway is not at all a very wise choice to go with. As for airway, Chennai to Singapore flights is the easiest and cheapest to get because of the proximity of the two places.
