Need to go to Belum from Perhentian or Lang Tengah island? Want to extend your holiday in some tropical island after your rainforest excursion in Temenggor? Don’t have own vehicle? We got you covered.
If you want to reach Belum from Perhentian or Lang Tengah island (Kuala Besut Jetty) or want to get there after your visit to the rainforest reserve, you can book your private transfer with your own chauffeur for you and your group — no matter how big or small. The journey will take approximately 4 hours per way to your chosen destination.
There are different ways to reach Belum Temenggor forest reserve. If you don’t come on your own transportation 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 outgoing destination is off the East coast of Peninsular Malaysia, you can book a transfer to or from Kuala Besut jetty. This destination is ideal if you come from or are headed to Perhentian islands (Pulau Perhentian) or Lang Tengah island (Pulau Lang Tengah) or other destinations in the states of Kelantan or Terengganu. Transfers are one-way only, so if you need a round trip you need to book twice and change your destinations. In this way you can also build your own itinerary: for example, you can get a transfer from George Town to Belum Temenggor and then from this page a transfer from Belum Temenggor to Kuala Besut, or the way around.
The journey to Kuala Besut lasts approximately four (4) hours per way. If you are headed to Perhentians or Lang Tengah island you will dropped off at Kuala Besut Jetty. You can also make arrangements to be dropped off at the nearest public bus terminal in the area. If you are headed to Belum, drop off will be on Pulau Banding (at the island jetty or at Belum Rainforest Resort lobby). If you need special arrangements, kindly contact us before booking. We normally employ Japanese-made minivans (e.g. Toyota) 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 Kuala Besut not later than early afternoon, because the East-West road is poorly illuminated at night and on the road stretch between Gerik town and Pulau Banding there could be animals or elephants in the evening.
If leaving from Kuala Besut, you will meet your driver at the jetty (unless agreed otherwise in advance at the time of booking). If leaving from Belum Temenggor, you will meet your driver at Pulau Banding, precisely at the Belum Rainforest Resort lobby or at the local jetty, as agreed beforehand.
|10:00||The first possible departure is scheduled at 10.00 am (although you can contact us -before booking- if you need to arrange different times). Driver will eventually make one stop halfway for toilet 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 Kuala Besut Jetty – for example, George Town (Penang) or Kuala Lumpur.
- kindly inform us in advance about on your hotel name in Perhentians or Lang Tengah island or time of connecting boat 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.
