Need to go to Belum from Pulau Penang? Want to visit George Town after your rainforest excursion in Temenggor? Don’t have own vehicle? We got you covered.
If you want to reach Belum from George Town (Penang) or want to get there after your visit to the rainforest reserve, you can book your private transfer with your own driver for you and your group — no matter how big or small. The journey will take approximately 3 hours per way to your chosen destination.
There are different ways to reach Belum Temenggor forest reserve. If you can’t come by own car or can’t use one of the public bus connections, we got you covered with private transportation services within different destinations in Malaysia. If your incoming or return destination is Penang or George Town, you can book your one-way transfer here (or book twice if you need a return trip).
The journey lasts approximately three (3) hours per way (times may vary according to weather or traffic conditions). If you are headed to Penang, you can choose to be dropped off at your hotel or apartment/home, at the city international airport or pier (if you’re on a cruise or need to take a ferry to mainland or Langkawi, for instance). If you are headed to Belum, drop off will be on Pulau Banding (jetty or Belum Rainforest Resort lobby). If you need special arrangements, kindly contact us before booking. We normally employ Japanese-brand (e.g. Toyota) minivans for transfer services; however, if your group is particularly large, a bus or large coach will be used (with air conditioning and full comforts – no onboard toilets).
We recommend to book your transfer arrangements early in advance. We have listed a few departure times but times are flexible and can be adjusted according to your needs. However, we do recommend that you leave Belum before dusk (18.00) or leave Penang not later than early afternoon, because roads around Gerik area are poorly illuminated at night and in the road stretch between Gerik town and Pulau Banding there could be animals or elephants at evening time.
If leaving from George Town / Penang, you will meet your driver at the lobby area of your hotel there. If leaving from Belum you will meet at Pulau Banding (Belum Rainforest Resort lobby or jetty, as agreed beforehand).
|10:30||The first possible departure is scheduled at 10.30 am (although you can contact us if you need to arrange different times). Driver will eventually make one stop halfway for washroom break or if you want to buy a snack/water along the road.|
Please note that this is a one-way transfer only. If you want to book a return trip, please book twice and change your departure and arrival destinations. You can also book arrival or return to different destinations other than Penang. For example, we do offer connections with Kuala Lumpur or Kuala Besut (ideal to get to or from Perhentian islands or Lang Tengah).
- kindly inform us in advance about on your hotel name in Penang or time of connecting flights or bus if any.
- if you are going to carry special equipment (sports, camping, video production gear) or any particular bulky or fragile items with you, please inform us in advance.
