Malaysia is easily accessible from around the globe. The Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) serves more than 80 international, regional and domestic airlines, while Port Klang, just 41 kilometers from Kuala Lumpur, serves as the leading port-of-call for many cruise liners. Kuantan, the state capital for Pahang, is accessible by air from KLIA and almost all state capitals in Malaysia. The newly completed highway cuts travel time by road from Kuala Lumpur to Kuantan by nearly a half, or to just 2 1⁄2 hours, and traveling around the state by land is an ease, as a network of excellent roads connects all the major and small towns.
