    Travel from Singapore via coach

    by singaporecherry Written Sep 14, 2005

    Transnational operate 2 trips daily, 8 pm and 9 pm. I bought ticket at S$36 per way from SIN to Kuala Terengganu. It took about 10 hours. There are 2 types of coach, economic and business. Try to get on an business class coach that has about 27 seats, it gives you more leg space. The economic class has about 33 seats. Heard that they are of the same price.

    Boat from Merang - Pulau Redang

    by wufei Written Apr 22, 2006

    Once your arrived at Merang Jetty, our "exclusive resort passenger boat" will be awaiting for you. It takes only a 45-minute scenic boat ride to Laguna Redang Island Resort. You'll still be fresh enough to take your first plunge in the crystal clear water of Redang!

    Ferry Transfer from Merang - Laguna Redang = Free of Charge

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
