Did you Know?
- Bus routes service Kuantan from all parts of the peninsula, and thanks to the opening in 2004 of a beautiful new highway linking Kuantan to KL, the trip is only 3 1/2 hours; but I can't vouch for the quality of the bus itself.
- The official website for the Pahang tourism board is www.pahangtourism.com.my.
- By Bus-- If you're arriving on the executive bus from Singapore, you'll be dropped at the MTC (Malaysia Tourism Centre) on Jalan Ampang in the center of town.
- The second Intergovernmental Conference on the Safeguarding and Development of Angkor will be held at the International Conference Center, 19 Avenue Klber, on November 14 and 15.
- Several ministers of countries represented at the conference will also be taking part in the proceedings, including Cambodian Minister of State Vann Molyvann and Indian Tourism and Culture Minister Jagmohan.
- From KL Sentral, taxis are always on hand and use a coupon system (about RM7/$1.85 or RM8/$2.10 to central parts of the city), or you can catch one of the city's commuter trains to a station near your hotel.
- By Rail-- KL has a network of mass transit trains that snake through the city and out to the suburbs, and it'll be worth your time to become familiar with them, because taxis are sometimes unreliable and traffic jams can be unbearable.
