Bagaimana untuk pergi dari Stesen KTM Arau ke Jeti Kuala Perlis (untuk Feri ke Langkawi)
As nearly all tourists travelling to Arau by train will be heading over to Langkawi Island you will need to know how to get from the train station in Arau to the jetty in Kuala Perlis.
Taking a waiting taxi is by far the quickest and easiest way to get to the jetty.

If you are on a budget - find someone to share a taxi with if you can or take the much longer trip by bus.
To get from Arau station to Kuala Perlis jetty by bus you can take a MyBas bus from just in front of the railway station to Kangar bus terminal.
At Kangar you will have to change buses for another MyBas service to Kuala Perlis
