Kuala Perlis Bus Terminal

Other than the Kangar Bus Terminal, Kuala Perlis has anotehr long distance bus terminal as well.

Since its purpose is mainly caters for the travellers to Pulau Langkawi, it is very close to the Kuala Perlis Jetty, it is just 500 meters away.

If travellers are planning to go Kangar, this is the same bus terminal to wait for buses. But it is only to the Kangar bus terminal, if anyone who taking a train in Arau railway station, it is highly recommanded to take taxi.

Local and Intercity Bus Terminal

There are two different bus terminal in Kangar. The local bus terminal and intercity bus terminal.

The local bus terminal located at Jalan Tun Abdul Razak ( next to the Pejabat Pos Besar Kangar), it provide buses to most of the small town in Perlis. Those "tourist spot" towns are:

1. Kaki Bukit - The Mining Cave
2. Padang Besar - Malaysia-Thailand border
3. Arau - Perlis' railway station. For Arau, you can also take the "Kodiang" bus and ask the driver to drop you at the railway station.
4. Kuala Perlis - The jetty to Langkawi

Intercity bus terminal located at Jalan Bukit Lagi. There are buses connected to most of the major city in Malaysia, and even Singapore. Surprisely, there are no bus to Hatyai. It is still manual ticketing, so you have to purchase your ticket personally.
