How To Get There
Head south on the North-South Expressway and exit to Air Hitam. Drive towards Kluang and then to Kahang. From there, follow the signs to Mersing. Another route is to exit at senawang and head towards Tanjung Gemuk before going south again on the coastal road to Mersing. Either way, the trip takes five to six hours from Kuala Lumpur. From Johor Baru, it’s two-hour scenic drive along the coast road to Tanjung Leman or Mersing. Both are the gateways to islands off Johor coast.
