Driving from Johor Bahru or Singapore to Mersing
Drive to Kota Tinggi from Tebrau Highway and proceed your journey to Mersing, a quiet fishing town. The distance is approximately 138 km. Well, you will never miss it as you can see the signboard to the town. At Mersing, you need to take a speed boat to Rawa Island. There are secured parking spaces at a very cheap rate (around RM5/nights) so you don't have to think about your vehicle safety!

Driving from Kuala Lumpur to Mersing (399 km)
One of the common road to the island is by PLUS highway to the South and exit through Segamat. From Segamat, continue your journey to Kluang and from there you can go to Mersing.  Driving to Mersing is a long ride and frequent travellers can shorten it by following routes:  1. KL - Kuala Pilah ( winding road) - Bandar Muazzam Shah (will exit between Endau & Mersing) - Mersing  2. KL - Kluang - NITAR - Mersing (Using this route, you'll avoid the winding road before reaching Jamaluang)  Both Bandar Muazzam Shah & NITAR are the palm oil plantation estates, thus the traffic is not heavy esp. during the festive seasons.  Advisable to use either routes only for day drive. Normally, I prefer to use Kluang - NITAR route. By the way, there's a small island called Pulau Cawan near Mersing. During low tide u can walk to this island and according to legend there's one nenek kebayan residing there.

Public transport from Johor Bahru to Mersing
Taxi fare is approx. RM100/cab per way (charter). Bus fare is about RM8/way from Larkin Bus Station, Johor Bahru. One of the coach service operator is Johora Express. Depart at 8:30 a.m. These are not frequent though.  Alternatively, you can take any bus to Kuantan from Johor Bahru/Singapore but should not be surprised if you get charged the full Johor Bahru-Kuantan (RM15) fare even though you might only be going halfway. This is actually legitimate as these buses cannot pick up new passengers on the way and Mersing is not considered a major station.  Most of the express buses will drop you off either at the roundabout from which you should take Jalan Abu Bakar to get to the guesthouses (there are only 2 main roads in the town). Alternatively, you might be dropped in the back of the Embassy Hotel. Just walk straight to the big buildings into the main town to Jalan Abu Bakar.  If you get accosted by travel agents upon getting down from the bus, ignore them. You don't need to buy your tickets right there.

Public transport from Singapore to Mersing
Bus express is available at Newton Circus Food Court ("IN" Enterence car park) and Jalan Sultan Bus Station. Depart at 6:30 a.m. daily.

Public transport from Kuala Lumpur to Mersing

One of the coach service operator is Transnational Express, tel : (603) 238 8155, the buses leave at noon and about 8:30 at night with the ride taking about 6 hours. Taxi fare is approx. RM300 - RM400 per taxi (chartered service).

Additional info on public transportation
There are buses to Mersing direct from Kuantan, Kuala Terengganu (KT), Cherating and Johor Bahru as well as KL. From KT, there are about 5 buses a day leaving early in the morning until 2:00 in the afternoon and also overnight. These buses stop at Kuantan and you can board there. From Cherating, there are buses at 10:30 a.m. and 11:40 at night. From Kuantan, the ride takes 4 hours (RM10.35) and from Cherating, 5 hours (RM13.30). Bus companies are limited and you probably take Transnational which uses quite poor buses (by Malaysia's high standards) to Mersing
