How to get to Lang Tengah Island
To travel to the island you will have to take the bus or airplane to Kuala Terengganu or Kota Bharu (quickest way is via Kuala Terengganu). There are daily flights to both cities (operated by Malaysia Airlines and AirAsia). The bus is by far the cheapest way to get from Kuala Lumpur to Kuala Terengganu; there are daily busses that depart from Puduraya bus station. From Kuala Terengganu, you can take a bus or taxi to Merang (a 45 minute drive to the north); where the ferry takes you to Lang Tengah in about 30 minutes. The taxi is the easiest but also the most expensive method of transport to Merang (around RM40 from Kuala Terengganu). Do not confuse Merang with Marang; the small coastal town south of Kuala Terengganu where the boat to Kapas Island departs.
Boat from Lang Tengah to Perhentian
Though it is possible to travel by boat to the popular neighboring island Perhentian, it is not a regular route and this means that prices are high and schedules may be irregular. Cheapest option is to take the boat back to Merang, a taxi to Kuala Besut and then a boat from there.
