    • Singapore to Mersing

      Mersing Mar 26, 2014 at 11:13 AM

      My husband and I will be visiting Tioman Island and we were planning on flying there from Singapore, however due to Berjaya air cancelling their service will now need to go by ferry. We land at Singapore airport at 07.15am on 10 April and I'm having trouble finding the best route to the Mersing Ferry Jetty. Would anyone be able to advise on the best trip in the current situation?

      Changi airport offers a coach service to Kotaraya II terminal. Is it easy to get from there to the Larkin Bus Terminal (is this now called Larkin Sentral, and in a slightly different place), or should I instead take a bus or taxi into Singapore center and take a bus from there to Larkin?

      Which coach should I take from Larkin to Mersing? Do I need to pre-book? I understand booking from Mersing back to Singapore would be a good idea to make sure you have a seat.

      I'm of a mind to take a taxi to not have the hassle of all the changing and making sure we get to the jetty on time (even though I still don't know what time the boat leaves, that's another interesting part of our journey!). I have been offered a pre-booked return (Changi-Mersing-Changi) for S$350; is that reasonable or should I look for local taxis instead?

      Thank you in advance for your help!

      Does anyone know of any Dog friendly holiday bungalows for rent in or around Muar. We prefer to take our dogs on holiday rather than leaving them at home.

    • Transportation options from KLIA to Muar

      by pannam1 Online Now Oct 31, 2011 at 8:45 PM


      Does anyone know how much a taxi fare is from KLIA airport to Muar city?

      Is there a train from the airport? How about a bus? I'm sure there are buses from Kuala Lumpur, but as the airport is south of the city, any good options from there? Thanks for any advice

    • Eating Places in Muar

      by lethasaldanha Online Now Aug 24, 2010 at 5:57 PM

      We plan to spend a morning/afternoon hanging out in Muar, on our way from Batu Pahat to Melaka. I used to come to Muar as a kid to visit my Uncle when I used to live in Batu Pahat, but that was 40 years ago and I have not been back since...

      I remember eating places along the river front or parallel streets. Are the hawker stall still there and is that the best area to hang out and eat the local fare? We mainly want to walk around, see what I can remember and makan lah...

      Hi Muar folks...We've returned from Canada (2007)to visit with family, and could use the name of someone who can help me rent three used bikes. I don't care how nice the bikes are as long as they can get me (and 2 sons 16/18) from Sungai Abong to Muar center. More rain this time!!!

      Bicycle rental question

      by 1jabbar Online Now Aug 2, 2007 at 2:49 AM

      Hi Muarians;
      Can anyone tell me where I might rent a bicycle in Muar. I am visiting family in Muar for 5 weeks (taking side trips elsewhere.) None of my wife's relatives have bikes anymore (managed to borrow one for 3 days but the person needed it back), and I have no way of getting around until the reatives finish work. I am staying at Sungai Abong, so if you know of a rental place or have an old bike I can use I would be happy to meet up. Also; does anyone know if I need a motorbike license (I have a Canadian drivers license)if I rent an electric scooter in Malaysia. Thanks Again.
