Cameron Highlands to Penang
I went to Cameron Highlands from Kuala Lumpur, and I had the same question in mind on how to go directly to Penang. The main town in Cameron Highlands is called “Tanha Rata” which is a very good place.
You can find almost everything there. There is a bus station at Tanha Rata from where you can easily find bus to many cities in Malaysia. Bus to Penang goes after every 2 hours, but if you just arrive at the station anytime during day time, you’ll easily find a ticket for the next bus.
It cost only 45 MYR from Cameron Highlands to Penang. However, if you didn’t find a direct bus to Penang then simply buy a bus ticket to IPOH, which is another city in the way to Penang. there is a big bus station in IPOH from where you’ll easily find another bus to Penang.
If you go directly from Cameron Highlands to Penang then it’ll take around 4 to 5 hours. if you go to IPOH first then it’ll take 2 hours to IPOH and another two hours to Penang.
The journey from Cameron Highlands to Penang is amazing, you’ll find a scenic beauty on the way. it’s all lush green and clean. you might fall in love with it.
The bus arrives at George Town bus station in Penang. you can hire a taxi there to reach your hotel/hostel. Taxis in Penang are not expensive and easily available outside the bus station.
