Hi,Can anyone tell me the easiest & painless way to get from Kuantan Airport to the Island of Tioman,
There is none. Taxi or Bus is the option, and it takes about 3 hours journey to Mersing, and from Mersing you have to take boat to Tioman.
IF you opt to fly, the easiest way is to land on Tioman Island itself, instead of Kuantan. Berjaya Air fly from SAAS Airport near KL to Tioman Island.
Kuantan Airport is not the nearest airport to Tioman, other than Tioman Airport. Senai Airport in Johor Bahru is closer to Mersing where you can get a boat to Tioman island. The distance from Senai Airport to Tioman is around 2 hours, but from Kuantan Airport to Tioman is 3 hours.
if you plan to go by plane, dun stop at kuantan airport. take flight from saas airport direct to the island.
