Self driven cars if u know how to drive. Right hand drive. Driving lic if your origin country is required. Cars are mostly automatic transmission. More than 10 different vendors have shops just near the baggage claim section on arrival. Rates between 70 to 150 RM per day. Good bargain too available.

Uber is also available in city. Best is self driven. Small island and roads are good. For Indians- remember at petrol stations are self service:)

Accommodations:- we stayed at holiday Villa resorts 4 star property. In my view that hotel is 3 star. Location is good but rooms are average or poor. Have heard that barjaya resort is good. Pls check. Hotels are generally not good from inside in this island.
