There’s plenty of ways to get to Perak and each with its own uniqueness.

There’s always a reason to get yourself to one of Perak’s many attractions.

Although sometimes the journey is just as amazing as the destination.


A vast road network that is convenient and safe for travellers surrounds Perak. There are rest stops located along the expressway for travellers. In fact, the North-South Expressway leading towards Perak is a boost to the domestic tourism. The Expressway stretches from the Thai border in the north to the southern part of the state of Johor Bahru.

Depending where you’re heading, most part of Perak is well connected to the North-South Expressway. You can get into Ipoh via Exit 137: Simpang Pulai, Exit 139: Ipoh Selatan, Exit 140: Ipoh Utara or Exit 141: Jelapang.

The main Ipoh bus terminal is located at Medan Gopeng. The station provides services to and from just about any location in the country. Most frequent routes are to and from Kuala Lumpur (Puduraya Station) and Penang. Larger bus companies like Transnational, Plusliner, Konsortium provide the most frequent, reliable and safe services.

Bus companies also operate out of other locations including Jalan Bendahara for services to and from Singapore and Jalan Bercham for bus service to and from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.


The Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM) or the Malaysian Railway offers a journey full of scenic views about the countryside as you chug along the railroad. Coaches are air conditioned and divided into various classes. The ride is comfortable and exciting as the train stops in the little towns along the way.

There are ten daily services in each direction between the Ipoh Train Station and KL Sentral in Kuala Lumpur. The journey takes between three to four hours one way and costs between RM12 and RM40 depending on seating class.

The first train departs KL Sentral at 5:30am and the last train at 10:30pm. Ipoh is on the Singapore-Kuala Lumpur-Penang-Bangkok route so there are also trains to and from Penang and all the way to Bangkok.
