This is what we did on V-Sixers Club Tour De Malaysia:50th Years Of Independence

Day one - KL to Penang
Day Two - Penang cross over to Kelantan and straight down to Pahang
Day Three - Pahang down to Johor
Day Four - Johor up to KL

4 Days 3 Nights cover 1777km

Is a extreme driving. Your schedule on no.2 is a leisure trip. Good for family and you.

Cheers!

Bro FanCheng,
long time no see no talk.. :) my fault...
anyway.... you sound like rushing into a 'long drive' within 2 days of this writing! whhoa! or did you plan it long ago ?

Your schedule appears like you just want to drive drive drive everyday... once you touch the town.. you eat sleeep.. wake up and drive again... whoa !!! ... eat eggs for strength hor.. :mrgreen:

I myself is planning to do a very very leisurely drive , probably 2 weeks in duration... planning up the east coast and down back to Sg via west coast.... drive slowly , sleep anywhere and don't lose sleep... :) probably in a few month's time...

cheers.

bro,

May I suggest you take the coastal roads in the East Coast, from Kuantan to Terengganu via Chukai (stopover at Kopitiam Hai Peng), there's Gerai Hasnik in Setiu which serves fresh battered fish/squid/prawns... and then drive right up to Kota Bharu. Lots of good food around, and cheap too. If you pass through Paka in the evening, you'd be able to see the Petronas refinery complex glowing. Anyway, it's a very scenic drive. I'm sure you'll love it. The only catch is that almost all through that journey, you're capped at 70km/h.
