If you know you'll be needing to get round in Malaysia during your holiday, then it's good to know that the 2 main means of transport here are bus (or coach) and taxi.
Bus and coach are pretty much the same, although buses tend to have more stops along the way, rendering them a little slower. Buses also may or may not have aircon, which is something to take note of if you're not used to the high temperatures here. Lastly, the seats in buses are not quite as comfy as the seats in coaches.

This applies to the whole cabin actually. That is, the entire coach experience tends to be a little more comfortable, with added perks like in-vehicle entertainment and a lavatory. Obviously, given these extras, coach tickets are usually higher than bus ticket. But all told, arguably, coaches are best value for money, especially given the great MYR currency exchange rate to Euro, USD, SGD etc.
Want to book your bus or coach? Just enter your destination and follow the steps.
If you like to get around faster, you can take a taxi
. Clearly, going by taxi is more convenient, as well as more private.
