How to get around Kota Bharu from Ipoh

From Ipoh By Bus

  • Only 2 bus schedules - 10 am or 10 pm
  • Pick the Trans Nasional buses for a normal, non double decker bus
  • Trip is 6 and a half hour
  • One 30 minutes pit stop at Gerik town, before you go up the Titiwangsa mountain range.

I wish I knew

  • The 30 min trip in Grik is at a local restaurant (which seem to be a pit stop for express buses). Timing is perfect for lunch + prayer
  • The buses use this same pit stop if travelling back from Kota Bharu to Ipoh
  • Bus don't go pass the Wakaf Che Yeh area (unless you can cajole the driver to do it)
  • There's 2 bus stations in Kota Bharu. And to go to Ipoh, the bus station is located in town.
