Getting to Taman Negera is relatively easy these days. All you need to do is to take a bus or a train to a backwater town called Jeruntut and from there, you proceed to Tembeling Jetty where you take a boat ride into Taman Negara.
Like many other ignorant Singaporean travellers, we romanticised train rides and were more than eager to take a train from the Tanjong Pagar Station (S'pore) to Jerantut Station ( M'sia ). The journey quickly dispelled all of our positive feelings. First, it took 9 bloody hours and secondly it was pockmarked by frustrating delays and blackouts. To top it all off, we waited at the train station from 1am to 4.20am on the last day for our train!
Guess that says a lot about efficiency at Malaysian Rail. Well, having said that, I'll recommend that you take a bus from Larkin Station at JB to Jerantut. The journey will cost half and it'll be shorter and faster. The rest of our journey was taken by the guide so we didn't worry about it....
Here's how our journey went:
Singapore->Jerantut ( rail )
Jerantut ->Tembeling Jetty ( guide's van )
Tembeling ->Kuala Tahan /T.Negara ( chartered boat )
