Bikes on ferries in Malaysia
Ferries are a popular way to reach Malaysia and travel around it.
The historic city of Malacca and Medan in Indonesia are also linked by ferry.
Taking your bike on a boat is preferable to using the bus because you don’t need to disassemble the bike.
Keep in mind:
- You may need a bike ticket. Sometimes this is overlooked but don’t be surprised if you’re asked to pay a small fee, usually about 15 RM.
- The bike often goes on the bow of the ferry, not inside it. Workers will help you lift your bike from dock to deck.
- Taking your bags off the bike ahead of time makes it easier to lift on and off the boat.
