Lumut to Kota Bahru

There are two busses a day from Lumut to Kota Bahru. There you may be crossing the border into Thailand. There are trains available from Kota Bahru to Bangkok.

If Thailand is your next destination, I would not recommend this route. A bus to Butterworth and train to Hat Yai/Bangkok is easier. However, there are two busses a day available.

By car

It is easy to travel to Pangkor by car. However, driving a car in Kuala Lumpur can be a little nightmarish because of the traffic jams, especially during rush hours.

Keep in mind in Malaysia the driving direction is as in the United Kingdom. From Kuala Lumpur to Lumut is about 250 km. You can travel to Pangkor from the North. It is about 200 km.

Driving from the direction Pinang

If you are taking the North-South Highway, there are few exits that you can use. The easiest exit will be at Changkat Jering. If you take this exit you will be driving along the old road. There are some little towns on this route you will pass. Follow the direction Lumut, Sitiawan. At Ayer Terjun you take the junction to Lumut. It's a straight road that passes Pantai Remis and Segari. Just before Seri Manjung you take the junction to Lumut.

Other exits are Kuala Kangsar, follow now the road to Kampong Tanjung and Ayer Tawar. It is possible to drive from Ipoh, take the exit Gopeng. Follow Batu Gajah (road number 5, Ayer Tawar and Sitiawan. You will find the instructions further by following the signs to Lumut.

Sign to Lumut

Driving from the direction of Kuala Lumpur

For driving from the KLIA-airport to Lumut, exit the airport using Airport Road. After about 3.km you will see a few green expressway signs. Follow the sign to Ipoh; Sungei Buloh. You are now on the North / South Expressway travelling North. Take exit 135 Jeram, Batu Gajah, Gopeng (km marker 297. From here it's another 70 km to Lumut. Follow first the direction of Batu Gajah. You will see soon markers with Lumut and Damai Laut (white boards with green letters). The roads are generally in good condition though sometimes a bit small.

Alternatively you can follow the direction Klang - Teluk Intan. From Teluk Intan it's another 80 km to Lumut. When you leave Klang, you can follow Teluk Intan and after you will find Lumut on the boards

An additional note for you if you travel to Pangkor with your own car.

There are many places to park your car. The price range from RM3 to RM10. Most of the carparks charge RM10 but try to park behind Hotel Indah (which is facing the sea) which charge RM3.

Direction to Lumut
From experience, it is not a problem to leave your car there even for a week. But obviously you should take precautions like lock your car properly and if you have the steering lock, that would be even better.

By boat
After arrival in Lumut, you have to take the ferry to Pulau Pangkor. The ferry leaves every 30 minutes. It takes about 40 minutes to the ferry port of Pangkor Town. There is a stop at Sungai Pinang Kecil.

 

Mesra Ferry

Mesra Ferry, recommended for it's upper deck

The fare is RM 10 for a return. Travelling to Pangkor/Lumut is easy and fast. More information on Lumut, click here.

There are different companies running the service. The best service is done by Mesra Feri Sdn Bhd. With it's upper deck from where you can shoot your photos and it's low noise motors (the Mesra ferry has two instead of the other companies who have only one motor) the Mesra ferry is a good choice. Read more about the services of the Mesra Ferries which goes beyond the normal transport from Pangkor to Lumut.

The boat service starts early in the morning at 6.30 at Pangkor. The earliest boat from Lumut leaves at 6.45. Until 8 am the service is every half hour. From 8 on there is a ferry every 15 minutes. (please note the Mesra Ferry leaves 15 past and 15 to the hour) at day time.

After 3pm, the ferry service is every half hour. The last boat from Pangkor BACK to Lumut is at 8.40 pm while you can have a boat TO Pangkor until 9 pm.
