  • Road trip from Kuala Lumpur to Johor Bahru Malaysia

    Johor Bahru from Kuala Lumpur

    The Kuala Lumpur to Johor Bahru road trip in Malaysia is a great way to explore some amazing historical cities along the west coast of mainland Malaysia. I planned this trip in late August 2023 and decided to stop at some off-the-beaten-path locations on this route. Renting a car from KLIAairport is the best option if you are planning to catch a flight back home after the holidays. Self-driving trip is the most enjoyable and flexible way to explore some amazing destinations in Malaysia.

    The beautiful city of Ipoh is located around 200 km north of Kuala Lumpur. The driving distance from Kuala Lumpur to Ipoh is around 2.5 hours using the freeway AH2 which connects Kuala Lumpur to some of the major cities in mainland Malaysia. I have undertaken several road trips from Kuala Lumpur to Ipoh and Cameron Highland in the last 3 years. The best way to enjoy these interesting destinations is to organize a minimum of two nights' stay that will give you enough time to explore all areas of interest in these towns. 

  • Visiting Kuantan in Pahang

    Kuantan East Malaysia

    Kuantan is the capital city of Pahang on the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia.I travelled to Kuantan from Kuala Terengganu in September 2019. The road trip takes around 2.5 hours and passes through a number of interesting and laid-back coastal towns including Kuala Dungan, Chukai, and Cherating. These coastal towns are popular for water sports and attract crowds from surrounding towns over the weekends. There are a number of seaside resorts along Cherating Beach.
