Traveling to Longsha

LongSha travel directions.

Map of the state Terengganu and the islands of the east coast, mainland of Malaysia.

MARANG

is your bustop or Jetty that you will need to arrive at to catch the speed boat across to Kapas Island and Longsha Campsite.

 (Not Merang which is a little further up the east coast and you will end up at REdang island so be carful not to get confused.)

The  way I remember it is MA for KApas and ME for REdang

Marang is a sleepy little fishing village with access to the Beautiful Kapas Island. As you enter Marang jetty you will past by some small shops and the local market. Once you arrive at the jetty you will find car parking, boat offices and a few places to eat.

FLIGHTS

You can fly direct from Kualar Lumpur to Terengganu  airport with the two main airline carrier’s

Air Asia https://www.airasia.com/

Or Malaysia Airlines. (Around 45mins). https://www.malaysiaairlines.com/

All major international and domestic airlines fly into Kuala Lumpur, Some international airlines fly into Penang,  where you can catch connecting flight, bus, taxi or drive to Marang.

CAR

Driving from Kul on the new highway normally takes around 5-6 hours, depending how fast you drive I guess.

if you take the coastal routes and long way round it takes around 6- 8 hours.

TAXI

Driving coastal routes or cross country from Kuala or Penang normally takes  around 6-8 hours as a guide.

Great taxi service at Terengganu airport where you pay for your journey at the airport taxi counter and then wait in line outside the airport for your taxi, giving your receipt to the taxi driver.

BUS

There are great comfortable express bus services throughout Malaysia day and night (many companies to choose from) you can take the bus from most states/towns in Malaysia to Tgg. Choose wisely, some of the buses have video screens, tvs, and toilets on board with huge comfy seats, but even the more basic buses still sit only three chairs across and recline giving you great comfort.

If you come the KL route to Tgg you can ask the bus to stop at Marang bus stop so you do not have to go to Tgg and travel back to Marang. The last local Tgg “my bus” service from Marang to Tgg bus station/town is at 7pm

  • Local bus Terrenganue to Marang 3Rm. (30-40minutes.)
  • Express bus from Penang to Tgg is around seven to eight hours.
  • Express bus from Kul to Tgg is around five to seven hours.
  • A popular stop half way up the East coast bus journey from Kul to Tgg is Cherating, a small surfers coastal town
The new local MYBUS service runs until 7pm in the evenings from Marang to TGG.
( not to be confused with the express bus for longer journeys)

WALKING

It’s a shirt ten minute walk from the bus stop , passing the supermarket/shops and market to the Kapas ticket Jetty and car park for a departure to Kapas Island.

Longsha Campsite and Boat service ticket office is office number 14 and around the back of the main ticket offices at Marang Jetty.

SHOPPING – Local Fruits, Veg & Supermarkets.

The walk will pass the great local market with fresh fruits, vegetables, some fish and poultry, small supermarket and parade of shops. This is your chance to buy any food you wish to bring or cook at the campsite.

(Note, there are no food or fruit stalls on Kapas Island but many great restaurants to choose from on the island.)
