Normally the taxi will charge around RM50 per way from KT to Merang jetty.

You can catch bus..running by S P Bumi Bus..the route to Kuala Besut and you must hop off at Merang ( Stop at Shell Petrol Station) then..have to walk about 10 minutes..to jetty.The fares around RM5-RM6 only.The bus will depart from KT around 7.00am..and you can reach there about 8.20am..

Wincci, have you actually decided where you want to stay in Redang or the surrounding islands?

It really depends on WHICH resort or part of the island(s) you are staying at to determine the correct jetty. Most resorts run at least 2 daily trips to and from Redang island. With the heavy logistics effort required to ferry guests between Redang and the mainland, some resorts like Berjaya, Coral and others use a common ferry operating out of Shahbandar jetty in KT. Other resorts like Pelangi, Laguna and Reef operate their boats out of Merang jetty. From what I have heard, Many resorts are trying to switch to using Shahbandar jetty in KT because the waters in Merang are too getting too shallow. so PLEASE check with your resort.

As far as I know, there is ONE BUs express going from Larkin to Merang direct daily called KKKL Express (07-4315004). They will bring you direct to merang so you don't have to change to taxi. If you prefer more comfortable bus, take Singapore Five Star Bus from Golden Mile complex (65-62947011) or Konsortium from Lavender (65-63923911). They both stop in Merang as well, sometimes they take detour in JB to pick malaysian passengers up, but please call and ask if they can (they might take 2nd link).

Hope it helps!
