Faces of

Kuantan is the largest city of the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia with a population of about half a million. It is also the capital of the state of Pahang.

Kuantan is located about halfway between Singapore (to the south) and Kota Bahru (to the north). The city is situated at the coast of the South China Sea near the mouth of the Kuantan River. The city is not a major tourist destination, rather a stopover point for island destinations (Tioman, Redang, Perhentians, etc.) along the East Coast. From Kuantan you can also also reach the popular beach in Cherating in less than an hour with the local Bus.

Pulau Kapas

Pulau Kapas is a small island located only about 6km off Marang in the east coast state of Terengganu (about 1h north of Kuala Terengganu). It has quite and relaxed atmosphere because it is bypassed by the majority of the backpacker circuit looking for a more remote place like the Perhentian Islands. Pulau Kapas only get fairly busy on the weekends when locals come to island. There are a few good snorkeling spots around the island. All accommodations and beach are on the west coast facing the mainland. The west coast is the weather side has no sand beach, only rocks - it can be reached after a short walk through the jungle. Pulau Kapas shuts down during the monsoon season between November and February.


Kuala Lumpur - Singapore

There are plenty of options (flight, bus, train) to do the journey of 350km between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. We browsed through all bus companies serving this route and compiled the prices, times, departure and arrival points for you.

If you are on a tight budget or you want to travel on short notice without booking the ticket in advance, then you should take the bus from Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS). TBS is a huge bus terminal 7 - 10 LRT stations (depending on where you get on) south of the city centre. Several bus companies run from here so you  have largest variety and lowest prices (RM35 - RM46).
However, if you are looking for luxurious bus options, then there are few bus companies who run their operations from various locations within the city centre (Times Square, Imbi, Old Railway Station, Pasar Rakyat) and also outside the city centre (Sunway Lagoon, 1Utama, Mont Kiara). Their prices vary from RM88 - RM95.
The only budget option within (or close to) the city centre is First Coach from Bangsar LRT station (RM45 - RM50). Transtar also has one budget bus (the rest of their buses are premium) from Imbi (SGD12).
