Taking train from KL to Cameron Highlands

Hi Guys.

Is it possible to take the train to Ipoh, and then taxi or bus the rest of the way?

and could you tell me how long the journey would take.

Hi

Yes you certainly could do that, but it would take longer than if you just got a taxi to take you directly from KL to CH and you would have to fit in around train times. The taxi from KL to CH would normally take around 4 hours.

Most people would take a taxi or bus from Kuala Lumpur direct to Cameron Highlands. Going to Ipoh would entail a bit of doubling back and might take up more travel time too.

Having said that, if you are determined about it, its certainly possible. KTM has recently introduced a KL-Ipoh shuttle train which departs from KL Sentral. Takes about 3 hours or so to Ipoh.

Didn't think it would take so long, to travel up there.

can you think of anywhere I can travel by train, within 2 hours of KL, which is of interest.

The train is the limiting factor here. Trains in Malaysia are painfully slow and there is nothing much of interest within 2 hours from K.L. by train.

If you chose to go by car/taxi, both Ipoh aup north nd Melaka down south are within striking distance.
