    My wife and I are going to be going to Malaysia for vacation and will be there for 14 days not counting travel days at beginning and end of the trip. We are going to be flying in and out of Singapore from the US. We would like to visit the following places and we are not sure how much time to allow for travel and the best order. We would like to visit the following places:

    Cameron Highlands
    Tamen Negara NP
    Pulau Redang

    The beach vacation is the main reason why we are going so we will spend the most time on Redang. Also, the Jungle Train sounds interesting if we could fit that in.

    What would be the best way to fit everything in? Any help is appreciated.

    Thank you.

    You shouldn't have any trouble fitting those 3 places in to 14 days.

    The jungle railway trains leave at ungodly hours in the morning and is really only practical if you're traveling between Taman Negara and Kota Bahru, so not sure how practical that is.

    Anyway, to maximize travel time you could start with an overnight bus from Singapore to the Cameron Highlands (http://www.easibook.com/). They're big, comfy buses and pretty easy to sleep on. Between the destinations (Cameron Highlands - Taman Negara - Merang jetty) there should be tourist mini-buses.... inquire with your guesthouse a day or two in advance.

    Alternatively, Berjaya Air flies between Singapore and Redang Island. So if don't mind spending a bit more money to save tons of time, that would be a good place to start or end the trip.

    We are leaning towards flying from Singapore because of time. Also, the flight from Singapore to Redang is cost prohibitive thus the flight to Kota Bharu and then the bus/ferry to Redang.

    Here is our itinerary. I'd love feedback on timing of travel between destinations and feasibility of travel. Does this work?

    Day 1 Singapore to Kota Bharu Fly to Kota Bharu via Kuala Lumpur
    Day 2 Kota Bharu to Redang Island Bus / Ferry
    Day 3 Redang Island Beach
    Day 4 Redang Island Beach
    Day 5 Redang Island Beach
    Day 6 Redang Island Beach
    Day 7 Redang Island Beach
    Day 8 Ferry/Bus to Tamen Negar Travel
    Day 9 Tamen Negar Sightseeing
    Day 10 Bus to Cameron Highlands Travel
    Day 11 Cameron Highlands Sightseeing
    Day 12 Cameron Highlands Sightseeing
    Day 13 Bus to KL / Fly to Singapore Travel

    If you do like jungle trekking and want to get deep into the forest, you should give Taman Nagara another day. You can camp at observation huts in the forest.

    You've given yourselves a lot of time for transport, which is perfect. If you want to cut down on costs at the end when you're leaving Cameron Highlands, there is an overnight bus to Singapore that you could get.

    It’s extremely fine to think and plan before your travel trip starts, you should choose any insurance plane which helps you to schedule your trip as well as protect you from many losses and risks.

    That is great time for travel, Malaysia is the growing country that have many number of less places for visiting and enjoying midnight parties. I like you tour plan but one thing that i have noted that you are not visiting any historical places because Malaysia has strong background for history.

    If go to Cameron, suggest to rent a car in order for you to go around there, Cameron rather big, if you want to go around need a car. if go by bus, then you may need to rent a car there will be expensive. From Singapore you can hired a car with driver so that meanwhile you go to Cameron highland maybe can drop by malacca. suggest Cameron can stay for 3 day 2 nite. then follow with Tmn negara and Redang. By the way, Redang beach will close somewhere in Oct - Mar due to monsoon.
