    For me, the old road from mersing up will be the shortest, fastest and cheapest way.
    Cleanse your thoughts, not by the foods you eat.

    Going up to KL and down to Kuatan via Karak highway does not make sense....it's a big U turn if you look at the map.....the above 2 are the usual routes by my colleague who lives in Kuantan

    Depends on what type of driving you prefer and if you are driving a sports car.

    The Karak Highway now goes all the way to Kuantan and is extremely fast from KL. You drive a longer distance but at much higher speed.

    If you like it a little slower and easier, via Mersing is nice. Both routes are scenic, Karak mountainous, Mersing coastal.

    Via Segamat is ok but I prefer via KL or Mersing.
