Malaysia has well developed transport networks and efficient rail links. Its international ports and airports are well connected to bus and train services, making travel to, from and around the country easy and efficient.

Most domestic transport in Malaysia is comfortable and reasonably priced, with air travel the most expensive.

Domestic flights and domestic express bus services are often sold out weeks before these festivals.

Transportation in larger cities is good with many different means of transport. In Kuala Lumpur, for example, there are buses, minibuses (bas-mini), taxis, pedicabs (trishaws), as well as trains.

In Malaysian towns and cities various modes of transport are used, including ferry services. In cities the rail network is a good way to get around, especially the KL Monorail and transit trains.
