Hi!

You can take an overnight bus from Larkin (Johor Bahru) to Kuala Terengganu. Here's my usual route:

1) Singapore --> Larkin (JB)  -- SBS bus 170

2) Larkin (JB) --> Jerteh         -- there are many bus providers doing this route, usually terminating at Kota Bahru passing by Jerteh/Jertih. I always take the one around 8/9PM reaching Jerteh at 6/7AM. Can check easybook.com for example

3) Jerteh --> Kuala Besut Jetty    -- taxi (20-30MYR)

4) Kuala Besut Jetty --> Perhentian Island  -- speedboat (75MYR)

It's definitely a long journey, but I find it okay as I can reach Perhentian by 9/10AM and on the last day I can do 2/3 dives and leave by the 4PM boat back to Kuala Besut before taking the 10PM bus back from Jerteh to JB.

Else you can consider flying to Kota Bahru (1-2hrs away from Kuala Besut) but I think it's not so convenient and kinda expensive too.

Hope this helps :)

Not long ago I debated with a friend about the above.
