Road trip to Kuantan from Singapore

Hi,

any idea the toll charges from Singapore to Kuantan in total?

And how long will it takes to reach?

And what's the best route?

IMHO

About 4 hours,but beware of speed trap(90-110Km/hr)

This route is good.

Take the plus highway from Johore Baru

a)Exit either at Air Hitam or Yong Peng

b)Then make it to Segamat,

c) from Segamat town ,after about 3-4 km

You will see a Petronas gas station on your left after some distance ,you will see a road junction.

turn right to Karatong Highway,this highway will take way all the way to Kuantan

If you follow the above route, toll from the Causeway to Yong Peng Selatan should be roughly in the region of RM14 or thereabouts. There shoudn't be any tolls after that unless you join the East Coast Expressway at Gambang near Kuantan instead of taking Route 2 into Kuantan.

Hi, as I read online, everyone said about route 3 as their choice, what's the benefit of route 2?

The advantage of Route 3? It is the coastal road from Johor Bahru via Kota Tinggi, Mersing, Rompin and Pekan to Kuantan. The road is (arguably)more scenic, and is generally toll free. Will take slightly longer travel time though.

These Federal Route numbers sometimes confuses me.

Federal Route 2 by defination is from Port Klang to Kuantan port.

Yong Peng to Segamat road is part of Route 1, Segamat to Gambang highway is Route 12, and Gambang to Kuantan old road is part of Route 2.

Previously taking the Yong Peng-Segamat route is faster but now traffic flow is more heavy especially the Segamat-Kuantan(Gambang) highway and the east coastal road Route 3 have improved, me and friends think its a bit faster, sometimes :).
