    walking on sunshine.........

    taken during one of our morning walks

    unless you're going for snorkelling trips, the best transportation one is going to have is one's own two feet! a morning walk to catch the sunrise is quite a good feeling to experience. the air is superbly fresh, the roar of the waves will gently wake you up and you can take a look at the other resorts on the island. you can also go up this little cliff to have a bird eye's view of the island. during other times of the day, the powdery soft sand makes walking be not a chore but an enjoyment. :D

    Boat trip to and fro Pulau Redang

    Boats going to Pulau Redang island, Malaysia

    The boat trip to Pulau Redang starts at a jetty near to Merang and it takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour to reach Pulau Redang. The trip can be quite bumpy due to the strong current so be prepared, especially if you have motion sickness.

    The gateway to Redang is Kuala Terengganu. Both Malaysia Airlines(www.malaysiaairlines.com) and AirAsia(www.airasia.com) operate daily flights there. The transfer from Sultan Mahmud Airport to the coastal village of Tanjung Merang takes about 30 minutes.

    Phone booking of Transnasional Coaches

    by cucumbre Updated Jun 26, 2005

    The phone booking and pay through ATM in Singapore is now not available as the local agency of Transnasional (a Malaysian coach company) has ceased operations (at this time of writing). However, you can still get tickets at the Kallang Bahru terminal, a 10min walk from Lavender MRT Station. The company could be engaging another local agency in the future. You can probably check online.

    PS: I had actually purchase my tickets using ATM transactions previously. But the local agency 'disappeared' and I couldn't get my tickets after payment. Hence, it may not be wise to purchase tickets with ATM. I have since made a police report.

    Bus to Kuala Terengganu from Johor Bahru/S'pore

    by cucumbre Updated Jun 26, 2005

    If you are travelling from S'pore, you can actually get much cheaper tickets from Larkin bus interchange, Johor Bahru. Of course, there is always the inconvience of travelling across the causeway.

    Other than Transnasional and Konsortium (you find them in S'pore as well), you can look for Cepat Express and Adik Beradik at Larkin bus interchange.

    Transnasional charges RM34 for a single way trip between Johor Bahru and Kuala Terengganu.

    Can't get bus to Kuala Terengganu?

    by cucumbre Written Jun 26, 2005

    If you can't get any bus to Kuala Terengganu from Singapore, try asking for buses to Kota Bahru. The bus to Kota Bahru passes Kuala Terengganu. You make a request for the bus to stop at the bus terminal at Kuala Terengganu. Check with the coach comapny before purchasing tickets.

    Transportation out of Redang

    by cucumbre Written Jun 24, 2005

    Most resorts provide their own water transport services to the island. However, the boats and ferries do not operate at frequent timing. Most of them leave Redang early in the morning. Hence, you don't really get to stay long on the island on the last day.

    Moreover, our bus transport (to Singapore) departed at night. Hence, we had a whole day at Kuala Terengganu. Thus, it is a good idea to find out from your accomodation what time the boats/ferries leaves Redang. You may need to plan for such time gap.

    Boating to Redang

    by sierralyndon Written Sep 15, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At the Merang jetty

    Boats to Pulau Redang leave from Merang jetty. If you've organized your trip via travel agent, then you should have no worries getting put onto the right boat.

    Each resort on the island has a separate check-in facility... meaning a desk with a guy in a resort t-shirt! The Coral Redang one was next to a nice little coffee-shop with the best teh tarik!

    There are car parks as well - these were open air spaces on a field. I can't quite remember how much they cost, but it was minimal. They appeared safe enough. I'd leave my car there.

    The trip itself was about 40 minutes long in a decent sized boat.

    to get to pulau redang, a boat is the only way.. the only choice is how fast that boat goes.. and as far as speed goes, the faster the better.. less risk of getting seasickness.. :)
