    Hi alice,
    The express coach from Butterworth is a good way to travel. Its takes approximately 6 hours to get to Kota Baru from Butterworth. The route will take you throgh the high country that divides the peninusla, Main central Range or Banjaran Titiwangsa in Bahasa. Its thick , lush tropica forest region. Also you will pass thru Tasek Temenggor, which is a man-made lake high up on the mountains.

    From Kota Baru, take another bus or taxi to Kuala Besut, the getaway point to Pulau Perhentians.
