Some parts of Malaysia are not accessible by direct flights , e.g. Malacca..

& Malacca is a popular & worthwhile destination..

depending on your time, luggage, value you put on comfort.

flying can be expensive if u have to check in.

the busses from KL to singapore (not the other way) are fairly cheap.

Just know that KL is served by 2 airports: the main one (KL International or KLIA) and Subang.

KLIA is quite a ways out of KL, it's about 45 min drive to KL centre depending on traffic, although you could take the KLIA express train service to Sentral and from there a taxi or Uber to your final destination.

Subang is served by some budget airlines and some of their flights use that airport (e.g. Firefly if I recall correctly). It's much closer to the city.

If your dates are already firmed up , just buy budget airline tickets to KLIA since many airlines plies the SG -KL Route..

Bus options are often for last minute travellers like me.. & anyway there is absolutely no scenery that is worthwhile enroute KL..

Cheers
