I'll be in Penang for a month in Jan/Feb 2009. I also want to travel to Kota Barhu and Terengganu when I'm there. What are the best ways to get there from Penang. Coach? Train, Fly? Also any info on costs and travel time would be appreciated.
I might have a car but not sure. So how long to drive to these places? Could I do it in one day and back?
Any advice on what to do/see would be appreciated as well.
Basically Penang to KB and Terrenganu only take about 8 hour driving. You can either take the couch or flight from Penang to Kota Bahru than take the couch to Terrenganu. Is a nice trip but the driving will be a bit tire as the journey will pass by some small town.
Hope this can help.
Hopefully I'll have a car and drive over to KB and down to TG. Take about 4 days nice and easy.
Yes. It is a bit tiring to drive. You may want to consider to fly from Penang to Kota Bahru (KB) there are budget airline, alternatively take couch if you still want to enjoy the scenery.
If you are comning in Jan/Feb you may want to note Public holidays here = increase price in food/accommodation crowd & traffic. Of course you will enjoy the celebration.
