Traveling around Malaysia is possible
through planes, trains, buses and cars. There are several low cost budget
flight operators that handle internal Malaysia, making it a great option to
travel around the country.
On the other hand, buses are cheaper and
better modes of transport within Malaysia. However, not all bus companies are
reliable. Two of the best bus services in Malaysia include Transnasional
(www.transnasional.com.my) and NICE/Plusliner (www.plusliner.com), which are
extremely reliable and comfortable for long distances. Booking in advance
during holiday season is advisable.
Alternatively, you could opt for train
travel across Malaysia, which although not as fast as buses or cars, is
dependable and inexpensive. You could also hire a taxi, which is available in
abundance in all major cities of Malaysia. Finally, hiring a car and driving
down the country is the best way to experience Malaysia. The excellent highways
and good sign boards allow for easy driving but one should be careful of rash
drivers in this region.
