By Bus & Taxi

There are many express bus companies and cabs willing to take you to Kuantan from major cities in Peninsular Malaysia.

Most come from Kuala Lumpur and you can easily hop on a bus that departs to Kuantan each day from the Pudu Raya Bus Terminal.

On the other hand, you can also hail a taxi and the driver should be more than willing to take you. For obvious reasons, the cab will be much more expensive than a simple bus ticket.

By Railway

Neither Kuantan nor Terengganu has a railway service. The nearest railway station to Kuantan is in Mentakab, about 120 km away in the West.

After reaching the Mentakab station from Kuala Lumpur or Johor, you need to take a bus or taxi to continue onwards to Kuantan.

By Air

Travel by air is possible via Malaysian Airlines (MAS) or the budget people mover Air Asia Airlines. There are flights practically each day between Kuala Lumpur International Airport and Sultan Ahmad Shah Airport in Kuantan. The duration is less than 45 minutes.

MAS offers a more luxurious and comfortable ride but Air Asia has much cheaper rates along with basic trimmings on the plane.

Flights between KLIA and Kuantan may be delayed or turned back due to bad weather. This may happen during the rainy seasons approaching the end of the year.
