Getting there and away


Any bus travelling between Kuantan and Kuala Terengganu or Kota Bharu will pass by Cherating and local buses also link it to Kuantan. A taxi to Kuantan will cost around 50 ringgit depending on your bargaining ability. Buses onwards are best arranged the day before through a travel agent in Cherating to make sure you get a seat. We used Payung Guesthouse and found them to be reliable and efficient. Sample fares via Payung Guesthouse include:

Johor Bharu 48 ringgit
Kota Bharu 42 ringgit
Kuala Lumpur 35 ringgit
Marang 30 ringgit
Melaka 40 ringgit
Mersing 42 ringgit
