Getting there and away


Kuantan's airport is 15 kilometres out of town and is serviced by Firefly, with flights to Penang and Singapore, and MAS with flights to Kuala Lumpur. Bear in mind a bus to Kuala Lumpur takes only three hours, so this is barely worth flying.


    Being the state capital, Kuantan is well connected by bus to many major hubs across the peninsula. The main bus station is near the stadium. Sample destinations with Transnasional include:

    Johor Bharu: 8 departures daily, taking 5.5 hours and costing 26.40 ringgit.
    Kota Bharu: Multiple departures daily, taking 6 hours and costing 31.40 ringgit.
    Kuala Lumpur: More than a dozen departures daily, most to Pekeliling bus station in KL, costing 22 ringgit and taking 3 hours.
    Kuala Terengganu: 11 departures daily, taking 3.5 hours and costing 17.80 ringgit.
    Mersing: 7 departures daily, taking 1.5 hours and costing 16.30 ringgit.

    For more fare information, see the Transnasional website.

    For Cherating, either get a bus to Kuala Terengganu and jump off at Cherating, get a local bus from by the taxi stand near the river or get a taxi (50 ringgit with some bargaining). The trip takes roughly 45 minutes.
