Malaysia has a modern transportation system offering a variety of ways to see just about everything this amazing country has to offer. The options are so plentiful it's safe to say that regardless of where you are going, there will little problem in getting there, in most cases with multiple options.
My travels in Malaysia have taken me be to Kucing (Borneo), Langkawai, Penang, Melaka, Kuantan, Kuala Lumpur, Kota Bharu, Cameron Highlands, Taman Negara, Ipoh and Kedah. Most of these trips were by land traveling Malaysia's amazing highway system, allowing me to see all the road side attractions and experience the lush tropical geography and climate up close. During the course of my travels I have been able to experience all of the transportation options listed below, except the intercity train, which is at the top of my list of things to do.
Here is a rundown of the various transportation options in Malaysia.

In the Malaysian Language (Bahasa Melayu) Taman Negara means National Park. While there are several national parks in Malaysia, when people refer to Taman Negara, they are usually referring to the oldest and largest in the country. This park is a large protected area in the central northern region of the country.
The park is approximately 4343 square kilometers that spans three Malaysian states - Terengganu, Pahang and Kelantan. The park is nearly all primary jungle and is provides an excellent way to understand the jungle ecosystem up close.
