Getting To Pahang
Most people will fly into KLIA 1 or KLIA 2 south of Kuala Lumpur and then transfer to another flight. Transfers to the east coast would be Kuantan airport, Pulau Tioman airport at Tekek or Ipoh airport when visiting the Cameron highlands.
Train connections are not really available in Pahang until 2023. Currently a new east-west rail is constructed, connecting the Malaysian east coast and west coast, connecting Kuala Lumpur directly with Kuantan.
The highways from Kuala Lumpur are excellent and connect KL with the east coast by the LPT (Lebuhraya Pantai Timur) and various highways down south towards Johor Bahru and Singapore, and up north to Ipoh and Penang connecting the Cameron Highlands.
