Travel from Kuala Lumpur
Kuala Lumpur is a major transport hub for destinations across the Malaysian peninsula. From Kuala Lumpur you can fly direct to a wide variety of places both within Malaysia and abroad. Kuala Lumpur is also connected to Malaysia’s railway network and numerous bus routes. For train travel you have several options. Kuala Lumpur is on the Malaysia’s West Coast line which runs from Padanag Besar on the border with Thailand south to Gemas in the State of Negeri Sembilan. At Gemas you can interchange to Malaysia’s east coast line which runs from Tumpat (near the border with Thailand) all the way to Johor Bharu where you can catch a shuttle train to Singapore.
If you are planning to travel eastwards from Kuala Lumpur to the Cameron Highlands, the Perhentian Islands or south to Malacca you are better off travelling by bus because either the railway doesn’t go there or because the journey by train would take too long because of the need to switch between the West Coast and East Coast lines at Gemas. Bus services in Malaysia also tend to be cheaper than train services, and very comfortable using modern vehicles. The only peculiar thing about bus travel in Malaysia is that on board toilets are banned by law, which is why there are direct bus services from Malaysia to Thailand but not the other way around as modern Thai bus services have toilets and are therefore not permitted to travel on Malaysian roads.
