    Flight / Bus / Taxi to Mersing (Tioman)

    by bckl2255 Written Nov 30, 2008

    Oh yes, you can fly to Tioman using Berjaya Air only. They fly from Subang Airport (the old International airport) but their frequency and schedule are not entirely reliable.

    Taxi is very expensive from KL-Mersing. Around RM400-RM600 for a 1-way trip. The bus only cost you about RM25 per person per way.

    Most of the resorts in Tioman is closed now for the monsoon (Nov-Feb). 1 night stay in Tioman is not enough. Stay at least 2 nights.

    Express Bus Stops at Machang/Yong Peng

    by SLLiew Written Aug 22, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are taking an express bus using the PLUS North South Highway from Penang, Ipoh or Kuala Lumpur to Johor Bahru or Singapore, it will usually stop for a rest for the driver and passengers in one of the several bus station stops off the highway at Machang or Yong Peng.

    The food served are not the best but are halal (for Muslim). It is a great time to take stretch your legs and grab a bite or drink or just visit the restrooms. For the smokers, it is paradise again.

    Try to remember your bus number or some of the passengers in the bus so that you do not left behind. Usually the bus driver will count before departure. Ask the driver approximately how long is the stop, usually anything from 20-30 minutes.

    By road from the North

    by SLLiew Written Aug 12, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Using the PLUS North South Highway, it is about 4 hours to drive from Kuala Lumpur to Johor Bahru - from KL to JB. When you reach JB, there can be a 20-30 minutes jam during the rush hours. It is as if all roads lead to JB.

    While the PLUS highway is toll highway, the old highway 1 is toll-free but can be slow as it is a two lane road with no divider with oncoming traffic. So if you are behind a slow traffic, the travel time is much longer and it is harder and less safe driving.

    Note: f you have a Malaysian car and you want to continue from JB and drive to Singapore, you can. But you need to process an application form upon arrival at the Singapore immigration to buy a prepaid card. There are conditions on number of days per year allowed per vehicle imposed by the Singapore side to prevent an overflood of Malaysian cars on Singapore roads.

    How to enter the Heart of Endau Rompin

    by bpacker Updated Apr 18, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Entry to Endau Rompin National Park was honestly, quite a pain in the ass. Literally! Not only do you have to endure a two hour bum-rotting ride from Bekok , you have to get a special permit from the National Park (Johor) Corporation, which only allows access to designated campside areas. But it is well worth the pain as it is FUN traversing through oil palm plantations and dense jungle tracks as you'll see mounds of elephant poo along the way, marvel as your vehicle makes it across a rickety bridge over and sigh with relief when you reach a beautiful camp beside a fast flowing river. Just take note that you need to have a 4x4 to do off-roading. If you don't have one contact a tour agent to bring you there.

    Bpacker looked pleased as punch by a 4x4

    From Singapore to Bekok

    by bpacker Written Apr 18, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I took a train from Singapore Keppel Train Station to Bekok, a sleepy town somewhere in the depths of Johor. It cost me only RM6. From Bekok, we met our local tour guide who took us to the heart of Endau Rompin in a 4x4.

    Keep the bus ticket

    by ngcsc Updated Jul 27, 2005

    If you are travelling between Singapore and Johor by bus, bear in mind you have to keep the ticket on hand.

    From Johor to Singapore, you have to get off from the bus twice, at the Malaysian Immigration and Singapore Immigration, after the custom, you need the ticket to return to the bus, don't havd to be the same bus but has to be the same company and route. If you lost the ticket, you might ask to purchase another ticket.

    Larkin Bus Station

    by ngcsc Written Nov 12, 2004

    From Larkin Bus Station, you will see several bus company operating the route to Singapore. Causeway Link, SBS, SJE and so on...

    To get to the Singapore city area, normally I would suggest to take SJE - Singapore Johor Express which is going directly to the Queen Street Terminal non stop. It is close to Bugis MRT station. The bus fare is RM2.40 from Larkin, however it is SGD 2.40 from Singapore to Larkin.
